On this Valentine's Day, I am lucky enough to have 4 sweethearts! It is my lovely family who fills my heart with joy, love, and gratitude.
And it wouldn't be Valentine's Day without a little chocolate. I made some truffles for my Sweeties and I made a Truffle Tutorial for you, my dear readers (yes, all 5 of you!):
These truffles are so easy to make and they're delicious! The recipe makes 42 but I halved the recipe because
18 OREO Chocolate Sandwich cookies
1/2 of an 8-ounce package PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 (8-ounce) package BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate
Put cookies in a resealable plastic bag and crush into fine crumbs with a rolling pin or mallet:
Place crumbs in a mixing bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended:
Put the mixture on a piece of wax paper and divide it into 21 balls, each about 1-inch in diameter.
Roll the pieces into balls:
Place the chocolate in a medium bowl and melt the chocolate in the microwave. I just used the "melt chocolate" feature on my microwave; if yours doesn't have this feature, try a minute at a time, stirring occasionally.
Dip the balls in the chocolate and place on a wax paper-covered cookie sheet.
Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. ENJOY!
Store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator.
Happy Valentine's Day!
