  • Beat cream cheese in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add graham crumbs, sugar, lemon juice and 1 tsp. lemon zest; mix well.
  • Scoop cream cheese mixture into 24 (1-inch) balls, using about 1 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture for each ball. Place on parchment-covered baking sheet. Freeze 10 min.
  • Melt chocolate as directed on package. Dip cream cheese balls, 1 at a time, into melted chocolate, turning until evenly coated with chocolate. Return to baking sheet; sprinkle with remaining zest.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

Size Wise

Truffles make a sweet treat that is perfect for gift-giving or for serving on a special occasion.


If necessary, re-roll each partially frozen cream cheese ball into round ball before dipping in the melted chocolate. Since the cream cheese balls will soften quickly at room temperature, remove them from the freezer in small batches before dipping in chocolate as directed.

How to Evenly Portion the Cream Cheese Mixture

Use a small cookie scoop to evenly portion the cream cheese mixture for each truffle.
