I mentioned that I love dipping stuff in chocolate, didn’t I?
Yes, I’m sure I did. It’s usually my opening line when meeting people. “Hi, I’m Landee….I love dipping stuff in chocolate…oh, and my kids..and um, my husband and stuff.” ::awkward silence::
So, of course, truffles are the perfect treat for me. They’re easy to make. They impress the pants off of people. They look adorable. And the very word “truffle” is extremely fancy. Plus… dipped in chocolate, yo!
I rounded up my three favorite truffle recipes I’ve found so far. Should you have any others I would be most obliged if you shared. Like, I would love you forever, like you for always, etc. etc.
And no, I don’t usually make this many at once. That would make me a certified truffle freak! I had to make this many for a stake training meeting so I took pictures. That is all. NOT a truffle freak. Not. ::ahem::
Beat together butter and sugar using an electric mixer until combined. Add cake mix, flour, salt, and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Add 3 Tablespoons of milk or more if needed to make a dough consistency. Mix in sprinkles by hand. Roll dough into one inch balls and place on a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet. Chill balls in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to firm up.
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
Milk chocolate melting chocolate for dipping!!
Additional chocolate chips, sprinkles, etc., optional for topping the truffles
Mix Oreos and cream cheese until well blended. Form into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Chill in fridge until firm. I usually have better luck with the dipping if I freeze them first. Dip in white chocolate and allow to set. Then drizzle on milk chocolate to make them look fancier. Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve. Makes about 30-35 truffles.
