[Recipe] Chocolate Oreo Truffles

Le Sister made these little balls of yummies some time ago. The mixer wasn't working so she hasn't been able to bake for almost a month now, and her hands were itching. These were sooo easy to make, it's a no brainer, even if you have never baked before, it'll be a challenge to mess this one up. 

You'll need :
-oreo cookies
-cream cheese
-chocolate to melt (milk/dark/white)
-sprinkles (for decoration)

1. Crush you cookies! Le Sister used the stone thing you'd normally use to make chilli, or you could put them in a ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin or anything heavy. Make sure there are no big pieces, so your truffles wouldn't be lumpy; or don't bother if you like some crisp in it. ;)

2. Add in the cream cheese! Add them bit by bit, mix them well before adding more so you don't end up with too much cream cheese in it. Use the back of the spoon the mix them together.

3. Roll them into balls! Being slightly OCD, Le Sister weigh them10 grams each before rolling; but you could just roll them to any size you like, and place them on parchment/baking paper. Store them in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, so that it'd be easier to coat them with chocolate.

4. Melt your chocolate! Pop your chocolate into the microwave, or put your chocolates in a bowl, placed in another with hot water. Confusing much? Youtube 'melting chocolates' and you'll get it ;) Dip the truffles in the melted chocolate, with 2 spoons or a toothpick, and place them back on your baking paper. You could stop here and freeze them back like I did, or continue decorating them. 


There are no exact measurements for them as Le Sister made them with a roll of oreo, and add cream cheese until it's about the right taste and consistency, not too crumbly and not too gooey, they should stick together and not fall apart. Fret not if you added in too much cream cheese, it's still bound to taste yummy!

If you try this out, do let us know in the comments, how it goes and if you like it! 
Have fun :)
