Finally, as promised in my baby’s first birthday party post, I have written down my husband’s super simple chocolate truffle recipe. I also included some very tempting pictures, so get ready to run to the store because you will want to try these rich and decadent little chocolate balls. Thanks Jonathan! (I am so glad I have a husband that enjoys cooking, because I sure don’t.)
1 package of oreos
8 oz. cream cheese
12 oz. semi-sweet melting chocolate
white decorating icing
While melting chocolate (be careful not to scorch it) blend together cream cheese and oreos until smooth, and refrigerate the mixture for about 10 minutes to make it easier to form balls. Then form teaspoon sized balls from mixture and dip them in melted chocolate. Place on wax paper and refrigerate until chocolate hardens. Then crisscross each truffle with white decorator icing and allow to harden. Keep refrigerated. Makes 35-40 truffles.
After they had time to harden in the refrigerator, I transferred them to a cute box lined with wax paper. This was door prize #1 for the scratch-off game we played at my baby’s birthday party. I think everyone was jealous of the winner!
Try them and tell me what you think. I thought they were very delicious and easy enough for me to make. Plus, it doesn’t take much time out of your day (time is a rare and valuable thing for every mom).
