These taste smooth, rich and decadent, and a lot like chocolate cheesecake. I am guessing you could use any type of coating such as peanut butter chips (melted), milk chocolate chips (melted), white Almond Bark, or even roll in chopped nuts.

After coating and before refrigerating to set, sprinkle holiday sprikles for a festive look.

Also, consider adding 1-2tsp of your favorite extract such as peppermint, rum or almond; or 1/4 cup of your favorite liqueur to the chocolate mixture before shaping into balls.
