Valentine’s Truffles

I’m not much of a cook, but food gifts are always appreciated at Valentine’s.  Especially if they are chocolate!  I thought I’d share a yummy and easy recipe I’ve used for Valentine’s gifting in the past.  Wish I had time to make some this year, but maybe you do!


Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) package OREO chocolate sandwich cookies, divided
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted

Directions

  1. Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor; reserve for later use. (Cookies can also be finely crushed in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin.) Crush remaining 36 cookies to fine crumbs; place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1-inch in diameter.
  2. Dip balls in chocolate using 2 forks or tongs;  place on wax paper-covered baking sheet. (Any leftover chocolate can be stored at room temperature for another use.) Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs or colorful sprinkles, if you wish.
  3. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator.



These are really delicious and will be well-received by any chocolate lover!  Make it an even more special gift by placing in pretty paper boxes.  This is a picture of one of Martha Stewart’s Christmas paper box kits, but the colors make it perfect for Valentine’s, too.

    Fun, I think I have all the ingredients in my pantry. I think Aldi still has sprinkles left from Christmas. And they are at least 50% off.
