Chocolate Cheesecake Balls  

There are some truths that can not be disputed. 
Good is good…. and so is cream cheese and chocolate! 

When you combine cream cheese and chocolate, there will always be a party in your mouth. 

This is such an easy recipe that is sure to impress. I really think the middle taste like a 3 Musketeer’s Candy Bar. The creamy texture and chocolate go together so well. You will think you are cheating with every bite! 

My husband says these are a winner! 

Using cream cheese adds protein to your treat, so you will not have a crazy blood sugar roller coaster ride and will feel satisfied. 

After you make the chocolate and cream cheese mixture, you can refrigerate it to make it a little easier to roll into balls. You may can skip this step and move right into rolling though. I made the cream cheese and chocolate mixture and left it overnight and roll in the morning.

So much fun to make too!

My daughter wanted to roll these up. These would be so much fun to make while drinking some hot chocolate and putting a Christmas movie on for the family to watch. Start a new holiday tradition! or add to your Christmas cookie list!

Trim Healthy Mama’s this would be a satisfying treat with the coconut and cream cheese. If you don’t like coconut, you could try to roll them in finely chopped nuts or some dark chocolate cocoa power with a little bit of nunaturals.

  1. OH. MY. WORD. I was JUST dreaming of a similar recipe today! This will go onto my ever lengthening ‘to try for Christmas’ treat list.
    Thanks for linking up at Trim Healthy Tuesday!

  2. Yum, I want some! Love that the protein balances out the sugar. I always wish that would work with Peanut M&M’s, but not so much.
    I need healthy treats after all the junk I have been eating this holiday season.
    We would love to have you join us at our weekly Super Saturday Link Party. It goes live tonight at 7 MST at http://www.madefrompinterest.net. It would be our honor to have you share your great work with us!

  3. Just made and even the batter is awesome! My husband loves this. No, you will not know sugar is missing. I have a dog, remember NOT to give to your dog the Xylitol will make them very sick.
