Chocolate Covered Candy Creams Recipe
8 oz cream cheese
2 lbs powdered sugar
1-3 tsp. variety of Bickford Flavors (ex. mint, pure vanilla, almond, anise, rum, cherry, orange, lemon)
Food color of your choice
Chocolate for Coating
2-12 oz. bags of milk chocolate chips
Soften cream cheese in microwave (approx. 30 seconds) or to room temperature. Begin adding powdered sugar by the cup and work into cream cheese until it gets to be a firm batter. Separate the ball into as many different balls as you want flavors. Take each separate ball and make a well in the center and add food coloring and flavor of your choice. Knead the dough until desired color and taste. If dough becomes sticky add additional powdered sugar to get it back to a firm dough. Once you have flavored all the dough balls decide shape to form cream centers to know what candy is what once it is all covered in chocolate. (ex. of shapes round, square, oblong, flattened balls.) Melt chocolate in microwave or on stove top in a double boiler. Dip cream centers into chocolate and cover using a spoon or resting on fork, place on wax paper lined cookie sheet to set. Once set remove and place in air tight containers. They are great for a gift for the Holidays!
