The Frugal Musician’s Back of the Box recipe #2



This wasn’t back of the box but inside the package of a block of Philadelphia Neufchatel Cheese. Boyfriend loves bagels and cream cheese and I mostly buy the Kroger brand in a block. I opt to buy the block because it’s usually 50 cents cheaper than the softer tub variety.  Plus I don’t have to add to my plastic footprint with yet another plastic container.

These Truffles sound magnificent. Son Two and his girlfriend are due for a visit from NYC sometime this spring. This would be the perfect thing to have as a dessert for dinner one night. I cannot wait to try them but thought I’d go ahead and share, as this is the bridal shower and wedding season!
