Today is National Cherry Popsicle Day, but we've got something better than popsicles - Cherry Kool Aid Truffles!!
These chocolate-dipped truffles have creamy sweet centers made with the unique flavors of Kool-Aid drink mixes! Your kids will love them!!!
Don't forget- tempered chocolate definitely makes this recipe better...so if you want, you can temper instead of the melted bits.
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese (softened to room temperature!)
3 cups of powdered sugar
3 cups of white chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
1 (0.16oz) packet of Kool-Aid drink mix (any flavor- see my choices below)
2 bags of Wiltons Candy Melts in White chocolate or Dark chocolate
Sprinkles, cookie crumbles or colored candy melts (I used Blue and Red)
Cream together cream cheese, powdered sugar and Kool-Aid in a large mixing bowl.
Melt white chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments (stirring in between) until smooth and creamy.
Add melted chips and vanilla to cream cheese mixture and combine until completely smooth.
Refrigerate for at least one hour.
Remove mixture from refrigerator and use a small cookie scoop to make small balls of filling (I placed these on a plate and put them back in the fridge to chill while I prepared my chocolate to dip)
Melt the Wilton’s Candy Melts in the microwave in 30 second increments until smooth and creamy.
Dip chilled balls of filling in the melted chocolate, draining away excess and placing on parchment paper to harden (if you want pictures of how I dip things click here for a previous recipe)
Decorate with sprinkles, cookie crumbles or drizzles of fun colored chocolate.
