Every year I struggle with what to give my husband for Valentine's Day. Something small and thoughtful but something that he likes. I usually go with chocolate. My husband loves chocolate. Who doesn't, right?
A few years ago my cousin Tricia made these Cookie Truffles. My husband loved them and begged me to get the recipe. When my cousin Tricia told me how to make them, I couldn't believe how easy they were.
What is also so great about these cookie truffles, is that they are adaptable. Cover them in chocolate and any kind of sprinkles that match the occasion. You could use different kinds of chocolate. Here I used dark chocolate and pink and red sprinkles for Valentine's Day. I have seen them dipped in white chocolate to look like a melted snowman.
Oh, I like that. Maybe I will try that next Christmas!
They are great to take to a party or give as a hostess gift.
I made these for my husband this weekend. Hope he likes his Valentine's Day gift!
36 chocolate sandwich cookies ( I used Oreo cookies)
1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
1 10-12 oz package of chocolate ( I used dark chocolate)melted
Place cookies and cream cheese in the food processor and mix until completely blended.
Shape into about 48 1 inch balls. Freeze for 10 minutes. Dip in melted chocolate. Place on baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Place sprinkles on truffles. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Store in refrigerator.
That's it!!! How easy!! Enjoy!!
Happy Valentine's Day
