I saw these Superbowl Football Truffles on Bakerella and I had to try them! The coating step took me a while to do because I didn’t have the prepared dark chocolate coating, since these were impromptu and last minute. I was able to improvise with some semi-sweet chocolate chips, a little milk and butter. Next time I’ll leave out the added butter because the chocolate didn’t harden right and was a little soft to the touch at room temp or I will just get the prepared chocolate coating.
I did have white chocolate coating for piping the details. I melted some in a double boiler, poured it in a plastic sandwich bag, cut off one of the corners and had an instant piping bag.
The results were not the neatest looking, but with a little practice I know I will get better.
My family raved about their texture… crunchy, crumbly and melt in your mouth – and their flavor… a sweet and mildly savory combination.
A most enjoyable ending to a Superbowl that certainly did not disappoint – at least from the view point of those watching it. I was slaving in the kitchen almost the whole game.
Despite being exhausted at the end of the day, I had fun in the kitchen.
The Oreo Truffle recipe was as good as I thought it would be. We used a natural Oreo look-alike cookie.
