Chocolate Cheesecake Truffles

Today I would like to suggest an inspirational recipe, an ensemble of cream cheese, powdered sugar, melted chocolate, and vanilla. All these tempting ingredients are made into balls, then rolled in chopped toasted pecans or chopped coconuts and cocoa powder. 

8 ounces cream cheese
4 cups powdered sugar
5 ounces bittersweet dark chocolate, melted (I used 70% cacao)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Coatings for truffles: 
toasted pecans, chopped (or other nuts)
flaked coconut (try it toasted)
cocoa powder

Using a mixer, slowly add powdered sugar to cream cheese mixing well after each addition.
Add melted chocolate and vanilla and mix until smooth.
Chill several hours.
Shape into 1″ balls.
Roll in coatings.
Chill, covered until ready to serve.
