Sometimes you just need chocolate. Like, you crave it. You dream about it. You can’t stop thinking about it. It doesn’t matter if it’s that time of the month, or a break up, or your general “I don’t give a fuck” attitude about bikini season – sometimes you just need a box of chocolates to know that everything is going to be okay (except your waistline).
So let’s kill two birds with one stone. Make your own truffles to a) kill the hunger pains and b) feel a sense of self-worth because you fucking cooked that shit on your own. Are they healthy? Fuck no. But they’re delicious and I’m pretty sure could bring on world peace.
• Three 5.25 oz bags Pepperidge Farm Brussels cookies
• One 8 oz package Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
• Two 8 oz packages of semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
In a food processor, crush 1 bag of the cookies to fine crumbs, pour into a medium bowl and set aside.
In the same food processor, crush the remaining two bags of cookies in to fine crumbs and place in another medium bowl. Add the cream cheese and mix until well blended. If your cream cheese isn’t softened, you’ll see why it needed to be at this point. Listen to me or fail.
Using your hands, roll the cookie/cream cheese mixture into 40 or so balls, each about 1 inch in diameter. Then, dip each cookie ball in the melted chocolate and place on wax paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with the reserved cookie crumbs (from the 10 cookies you crushed earlier).
Refrigerate for approx. 1 hour, then eat all the goddamn truffles and tell everyone else to fuck off.
