These are so worth re-blogging every once in awhile--by far the most delicious things I have ever made all by myself and the recipe is soooo easy! And when you make a batch, you end up with so many more than you (or your family) could possibly eat yourself so that you're absolutely compelled to give them away to unsuspecting people who will eat them and instantly love you more than they did before. The coolest thing is, by adding Milksplash to the mix, you can totally customize it for a wide variety of tastes like
In all honesty, these make some great budget-friendly Christmas gifts. Everyone I give them to loves me more after they eat them!
- 36 Oreo Cookies (do not use Tuxedos or another off-brand--they won't taste nearly as good. Believe me. I tried it and my tastebuds were not happy with me.)
- Package of Instant Chocolate Pudding
- 1/2 cup of whole milk
- Package of Chocolate Chips (dark, white, and milk are equally delicious depending on your preference)
1. Put the Oreos (the whole bag!) in the biggest mixing bowl you have. Crunch them up with whatever kitchen utensil you deem worthy enough for the task.
2. Measure 1/2 cup of milk into a measuring cup. Pour in the pudding mix. Stir real quick, just until the mixture is wet. Scoop into the Oreo cookies and stir it up as evenly as possible. Stick in the fridge for 1/2 hour.
3. Get out of the fridge. With a spoon, scoop up how much you need for about a 1 inch ball. Roll into a ball. (This is messy. That's ok. You're allowed to get messy.) Place the balls on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet. Keep doing this until your sheet is full. Stick these in the freezer for 1/2 an hour. (You can't chocolate-coat them if they're not pretty frozen).
4. Pour half a bag of chocolate chips into a microwave safe dish. Follow the directions for melting. I put my chocolate in for about a minute but your microwave and chocolate brand may vary.
5. Take the chocolate out. Stir it with a spoon. Get your truffles out of the freezer. Put them in the chocolate, coat them, get them out with the spoon, and put them back where they were.
6. Freeze again. Get them out later to top them with sprinkles, or a different type of chocolate, or nuts, or whatever your little creative heart desires. Or just eat them. They're already amazing!
