Dessert: Mocha Truffles

This recipe is from Taste of Home:

2 packages (12 ounces each)  Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons instant coffee granules
2 teaspoons water
1 pound dark chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Add the cream cheese, coffee and water. Chill until firm enough to shape. Shape into 1-in. balls and place on waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Chill for 1-2 hours or until firm.

In a microwave, melt chocolate coating; stir until smooth. Dip balls in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Yield: about 5-1/2 dozen.

Alissa's note: Cream cheese is really expensive in Korea.  I think it we spent between 10 and 15 dollars on 16 oz of cream cheese!
