If the balls are not hard, they may fall apart and crumble into your chocolate so make sure the balls are hard before you do this step. Once coated, scoop up the ball and transfer it onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet to harden.

6) Optional step: While the chocolate is still wet on the balls, sprinkle them with red or peppermint sprinkles.

7) Put the cookie sheet full of truffles into the fridge to completely harden.

8) Enjoy!

Please note that because of the cream cheese, these cookies are not ideal for leaving out on a platter all day.  They should be stored in the refrigerator.
