Yesterday I was walking the isles of the grocery store with my arms full of groceries. My boyfriend decided to go look at something so I had to pile everything up in my arms. If you have ever watched Rachael Ray’s cooking show on the Food Network you’ll know she does the same when she’s cooking in the kitchen. Every time I watch her show I giggle when she has food piled up to her eyebrows in her arms. I imagine the other shoppers in the grocery store were giggling at me yesterday when I was doing the same. I needed to grab some eggs, but I was already almost dropping my items all over the floor. I found my boyfriend and put all the groceries in the cart. I didn’t want to take the chance with the eggs.
When I’m in my own kitchen I walk to the same cabinet 10 times when I’m cooking. I feel like if I channeled my inner Rachael Ray the cooking process would go so much faster. She always keeps her cooking area so clean. Mine always has ingredients and scraps laying everywhere. Maybe if I had one of her garbage bowls I would be able to have a cleaner cooking area.
I love to cook and bake but I don’t always like slaving over the same recipe all day. I like recipes quick and easy. These birthday truffles are just that. They also leave a minimal mess (no one likes cleaning). If you just said you like cleaning… you’re a liar. I’m sorry.
Just a few essential ingredients and you’ll have these delicious birthday truffles made in the blink of an eye (okay maybe not that quick). I kept my truffles in the refrigerator for a nice cold treat. Every time my boyfriend opened up the refrigerator he just had to eat one. They’re good.
- 1 pkg. Golden Birthday Cake Oreos (15.25 oz.)
- 6 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup birthday cake candy wafers
- 1 tsp. vegetable oil
- sprinkles, optional
- In a food processor crush Oreos until they turn into fine crumbs.
- Once Oreos are fine crumbs, mix in the softened cream cheese.
- Blend until mixture combines into one large ball.
- Roll cookie mixture into tablespoon sized balls.
- Refrigerate truffles for approximately 30 minutes to harden.
- Melt the birthday wafers in the microwave on defrost for 30 seconds, continue process until chips are almost fully melted.
- Stir the birthday cake wafers with the vegetable oil until it's smooth and liquid like.
- Dip each ball into the melted wafers and coat evenly.
