Cheesecake Truffles

If you love cheesecake like I do, then you will understand why I have to make it in the form of truffles. After so many cheesecake recipes, baked or no baked, bars and cupcakes, it’s time for truffles. More precisely, no bake cheesecake truffles with fresh raspberries and dark chocolate. Although, this is a no bake cheesecake recipe, it is a bit time consuming, because the mixture is very soft, and requires chilling time during the process.

Ingredients For No Bake Raspberry Cheesecake Truffles

These cheesecake bites are made of classic no bake cheesecake ingredient:

  • cream cheese-make sure to use full-fall brick style cream cheese, it has firmer texture, but let it sit at room temperature for a while
  • cool whip- or other kind of stabilised frozen whipped cream, just thaw before using
  • graham crackers
  • powdered sugar
  • fresh raspberries- although all raspberries are very tender, try to use really fresh and firm raspberries, not too ripe
  • dark chocolate-you can use dark chocolate, baking kind or dark chocolate candy coating that’s easier to work with.

Tips for Making Raspberry Cheesecake Truffles

These delicious bites are addictive. When you start to eat them, you won’t be able to stop. Therefore, you will probably need more time to make them then to eat them.

Since I wanted to keep filling creamy and smooth I didn’t want to use too much graham cracker crumbs.  The  cheesecake mixture is very soft and  sticky.  And also there are the raspberries which are full of juice. So you won’t be able to make the balls from the mixture immediately. First scoop out about one inch balls and drop it on a tray lined with paper. Then chill these drops in the freezer to harden slightly, then roll into a ball.

When melt the chocolate, make sure it is not too hot or the cheesecake balls will melt when you dip them.

However, you must work very quickly with the truffles, but dip them in chocolate in a small batches.

Take just 4-5 balls from the freezer at the time. After dipping a few freezed balls in melted chocolate, the chocolate will probably thicken after a few truffles. So you will need to reheat it, to thin it out.

How To Store No Bake Cheesecake Truffles

Keep the truffles in an air-tight container in the fridge for a few days. You can keep them in the freezer for longer storage.
Remove from the fridge right before serving, because it will soften quickly at room temperature.
But trust me, even though you need a little more effort and patience to make everything right, every second is worth it!
