These smooth chocolate candies are great for folks who like a little sweetness after a meal but don't want a full serving of rich dessert.

Ingredients

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
9 cups confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup NESTLES milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup NESTLES semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons shortening

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and extract until smooth. Gradually add confectioners' sugar, beating well. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Flatten into patties. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until chilled.
In a microwave, melt chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Cool slightly. Dip patties in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper until firm. Store in the refrigerator. Makes about 4 dozen.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
