White Chocolate Truffles with Cheese

The subtle flavor of cream cheese really tastes good.
It's so delicious and addictive.

2. Add softened cream cheese into a bowl and mix until smooth.
3. Add white chocolate into a separate bowl and warm in a double broiler to melt.
4. Add the melted chocolate (step 3) into the cream cheese (step 2). Also add warm heavy cream (heated in a pan) and mix.
5. Rest the bottom of the bowl in ice-cold water and chill until smooth. Or, chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
6. Pour into the container and chill in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours. You could also use a freezer if you're in a rush.

10. Shape it again to finish.

Story Behind this Recipe

A friend gave me a recipe to make a white chocolate and mascarpone cheese variation of my truffle recipe.
It was so delicious that I've slightly changed the amount of ingredients for this one.
I did many tests to put together this recipe because the taste really depends on how much cream cheese you add.
