    4       oz           Lowfat/nonfat cream cheese
    2       tb           Semisweet mint-chocolate
    1                    16 oz. package powdered
                         Sugar, sifted
      1/4   c            Unsweetened cocoa
      1/4   c            Sifted powdered sugar
                         Morsels
 
   Place 1/3 cup morsels in a medium glass bowl,and microwave at high 1 minute
   or until morsels are almost melted, stirring until smooth.  Let cool.
   Add the softened cream cheese to melted morsels, and beat at medium speed
   of a mixer until smooth.  Add 1 (16 oz.) package powdered sugar to cheese
   mixture; beat until well-blended.
   Press mixture into a 6-inch square on heavy-duty plastic wrap, and cover
   with additional plastic wrap.  Chill at least 1 hour.
   Remove top sheet of plastic wrap; cut mixture into 48 squares.  Roll each
   square into a ball, and place on wax paper.  Roll half of balls in cocoa;
   roll remaining balls in 1/4 cup powdered sugar.
   Place 2 tablespoons morsels in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag, and
   microwave at high 1 minute or until morsels are softened.  Knead bag until
   smooth.  Snip a tiny hole in corner of bag; drizzle chocolate over balls
   rolled in cocoa.  Serve at room temperature.
   Note: Store truffles in a single layer in an airtight container in freezer
   for up to 1 month. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour before serving.
