How do I make it ?
Beat cream cheese in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add graham crumbs, sugar, food colouring and 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder; mix well.
Scoop cream cheese mixture into 24 (1-inch) balls, using about 1 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture for each ball. Place on parchment-covered baking sheet. Freeze 10 min.
Melt white chocolate as directed on package. Dip cream cheese balls, 1 at a time, into melted chocolate, turning until evenly coated with chocolate. Return to baking sheet; sprinkle with remaining cocoa powder.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Red velvet truffles make a sweet treat that is perfect for gift-giving or for serving on a special occasion.
If necessary, re-roll each partially frozen cream cheese ball into round ball before dipping in the melted chocolate. Since the cream cheese balls will soften quickly at room temperature, remove them from the freezer in small batches before dipping in chocolate as directed.
How to Evenly Portion the Cream Cheese Mixture
Use a small cookie scoop to evenly portion the cream cheese mixture for each truffle.
