This easy candy recipe makes about 1 pound of creamy chocolate candy balls. Make them large or small.
Coat them in crushed nuts, powdered sugar, cookie crumbs or whatever you choose.
Use dark chocolate chips for a rich dark flavor. Guittard 63% cacao seemed perfect to me. Or use semisweet chips for a milder, sweeter chocolate candy.
You can even add a pinch of cayenne pepper. Go easy on the pepper unless you like things spicy!
A little cayenne goes a long way. But it really enhances the chocolate.
8 ounces (227g) cream cheese, softened
1 cup (130g) powdered sugar or confectioner's sugar
1 cup (180g) dark chocolate chips or semisweet chips
pinch of cayenne? optional of course!
