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.
- 16 oz of cream cheese softened (either ⅓ fat or fat free would work)
- ½ cup of coconut oil
- 3 tablespoons of xylitol and a few shakes (5-7) of stevia powdered extract (taste test to see if you like it more or less sweet)
- 4 tablespoons of dark chocolate cocoa powder (or regular cocoa powder, you can use more or less depending on how chocolaty you want your cheesecake)
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- unsweetened shredded coconut
- Mix cream cheese, coconut oil, xylitol, stevia (or other sweetener), cocoa powder, salt and vanilla in a mixer. (taste just a little to make sure it is sweet enough for you)
- Refrigerate for one hour.
- Once hard enough to roll into balls. Take a tablespoon of the cheesecake mixture and roll into a ball.
- Then roll the ball into unsweetened shredded coconut.
- Keep in fridge covered.
We are serving these at my daughter’s third birthday party! I can’t believe she has grown so much the last year. To read her birth story click here.
Wishing you the Happiest of Holidays!
Remember the reason we celebrate this time of year,
because God gave us the first gift on Christmas!
