Decadent homemade truffles are easy enough to whip up anytime! Chocolate Covered Strawberry Truffles are filled with a strawberry cream cheese mixture and covered with chocolate!
So I realize these look pretty Valentine’s Day-ish and here we are at the end of August. But bear with me, because these truffles are amazing any time of year!
This simple little dessert tastes like something you would find at a candy shop, but it couldn’t be easier to make. Great for fancy parties and weeknight dessert alike!
Strawberry is my favorite fruit, whether I eat it plain, in smoothies, or in desserts. But my favorite way to enjoy strawberries is when they are covered in chocolate!
For these truffles, I used the concept of a chocolate covered strawberry but added some cream cheese goodness with the strawberry filling.
I started by making a strawberry purée and mixing it with cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla.
Once the filling is mixed up, I put it in the freezer for a bit so it can firm up and be easier to roll into balls. I also freeze the balls for a bit before coating them in a chocolate mixture.

- 1/2 cup strawberries, chopped
- 8 oz cream cheese (1 block)
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp milk
Store the truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will stay good for about a week. Or put them in the freezer and they will stay good for about a month. Just thaw for a few minutes before eating!
