Crikey! How'd you manage to make those look so damn good?! I just tried for my first time to make truffles last night and it was horrible.
Literally, the only thing I can taste is cream cheese and nothing else! Also, after I dipped them and placed them on a the wax-paper covered baking sheet, they were flat on the bottom instead of a round shape. This is what I did:
Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs via rolling pin & ziplock & then blender such as magic bullet; reserve for later use. Crush remaining 36 cookies to fine crumbs; place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended.
Chill this cookie/cream cheese mixture in fridge/freezer for 10 - 30min.
Shape into small sized balls (they get bigger when dipped). You can use a teaspoon to measure first ball.
Chill the balls in fridge/freezer for 10min – 1hr.
Dip the balls into melted chocolate. Fish them out with 2 spoons.
- Place the ball on the spoon and use the 2nd spoon the pour the chocolate. Then pass the ball to the other spoon. This will keep the ball from falling apart.
Roll the freshly dipped balls in mixture. (crushed oreo cookies, cocoa powder)
Chill the truffles on waxed-paper covered baking sheet for another 20 – 30min then leave in fridge until ready to eat.
After I dipped them in melted chocolate (maybe chocolate too hot?) some of them broke apart and melted when they came in contact with the chocolate.
Yuck. Where'd I go wrong?! Maybe I should have tried a more classic truffle for my first time.
