Chocolate Cheesecake Truffles

During the holidays I always love pulling out the family cookbook and searching for goodies to share at parties and whatnot. Usually I'm looking for recipes I've enjoyed over the years, but every now and then I'll try something new. Like these truffles. Chocolate Cheesecake Truffles! Simple? Certainly. Tasty? You bet!

Chocolate Cheesecake Truffles

Using a mixer, slowly add powdered sugar to cream cheese, mixing well after each addition.
