With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and Easter not far behind I thought an Easy Chocolate Truffle would be perfect, especially a no bake double chocolate recipe.

AND YES IT IS TIME ONCE AGAIN FOR OUR MONTHLY TASTE CREATIONS BLOG HOP, AND FOR THIS SPECIAL MONTH OUR FOOD IDEA IS Chocolate as a Gift Idea.

How to make Chocolate Cookie Truffles.

  1. Ground 1 package of Vanilla Wafer Cookies.
  2. Melt the white chocolate either in the microwave or I find it easiest to break it up and place it in a dish over a small pot of boiling water (make sure the water doesn’t touch the plate).
  3. Make sure to freeze the mixture and the formed balls, so they are easier to handle.
  4. Use a toothpick to dip your truffles in the melted either dark chocolate or milk chocolate.
  5. Ground your choice of nuts, I used almonds, but hazelnuts, walnuts or even pecans would work or even coconut if you prefer.
  6. Refrigerate the Chocolate Cookie Truffles at least one hour before serving.

To tell the truth the Italian is not the most Valentine’s Day kind of guy.  He does not believe that he should show he cares on a specific day nor should it involve necessarily chocolate. (unfortunately for me)

A head of broccoli or a bag of fresh picked chicory is just as romantic in his opinion!

So I guess if I want chocolate I better make it myself!
