Y’all, I love fruit and chocolate combinations like these Chocolate Cherry Cut-Out Sugar Cookies or even this Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Latte. Everything’s better with chocolate right?
So when I came across this recipe in a magazine I knew I just had to try it! If you love strawberries dipped in chocolate, these Strawberry Fudge Truffles are a unique twist on that flavor combination. With only a few ingredients they are super simple to whip up. I actually made these a few days ahead of time and kept them in the freezer until I was ready to serve them. They were still perfectly delicious!
I changed up the original recipe a bit to include fresh strawberry puree instead of strawberry preserves. I added a bit of powdered sugar to my recipe but if you have really sweet strawberries, you can probably skip that altogether.
These would be perfect for a special holiday like Valentine’s Day or just because! These Strawberry Fudge Truffles really are so easy—I hope you give them a try!
- 1(8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
- 3⁄4 cup vanilla wafer crumbs
- ½ cup pureed strawberries (I used frozen and pureed them from frozen)
- 1⁄2cup almonds, toasted and finely chopped
- Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy.
- Add melted chocolate, beating until smooth.
- Stir in vanilla wafer crumbs and strawberry puree.
- Cover and chill one hour.
- Shape into one-inch balls; roll in chopped almonds, and chill until ready to serve.
Today I’m sharing this recipe along with dozens of other food bloggers to bring awareness to the good work being done by Cookies for Kids Cancer. Even though my recipe is not a cookie recipe, it can still be made and sold at a bake sale if you choose to coordinate one. (We did one year and it was a great success! You can read more about that here). Or make them for your loved ones and then make a donation instead to support Cookies for Kids Cancer.
We are doing this event because we want to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer.
Did you know that cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S.? There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now. With less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget going to all childhood cancer combined, I knew it was important for me to get involved.
Help us make a difference by donating to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer! Our goal is to raise at least $3000. Because these three companies: Dixie Crystals, Land O’Lakes and Mediavine have each pledged to match our donations raised through this campaign up to $3000!!!
Currently, we have raised: $1,465 ALMOST half way towards our $3000 goal, will you help us with a donation today? Every little bit helps!
