'Tis the Season: Chocolate Truffle Boxes

December has been so packed with meals that we haven't gotten the chance to do much cooking lately. But since we were itching to do something in the kitchen, yet not fully willing to suffer the caloric consequences, we took advantage of the Christmas season to make homemade truffles to give out to our loved ones as gifts. Since FashionGeek Virginia made regular chocolate truffles last time, I decided to do oreo truffles. The recipe is so ridiculously simple; only three ingredients involved: 1 pack cream cheese (250g), 3 long tubes of Oreos, chocolate for melting.

Grind up the oreos in a blender (save half a bag for garnish) or with a ziploc and rolling pin. Mix with softened cream cheese until completely blended. Use your hands, it's fun!

Make into balls... millions of balls... then refrigerate for half an hour.

Melt chocolate (look up a Youtube if you don't know how; it's not as easy as it sounds) and dip in chocolate, before transferring to wax paper. Sprinkle oreo crumbs haphazardly on top before it dries.

If you're really lazy, then just roll them in oreo crumbs. Also good! Refrigerate it all for an hour or overnight if you have the patience.

Finally realized the reason we kept all those fancy designer boxes at home. Being a pack rat has its benefits sometimes.

Added too much cream to the white chocolate so it took all night to dry, but they're worth the wait...

Et voila!
