Last night the roomies and I made these Oreo Truffle Surprise Cookies from Picky-Palate.
If you want the recipe check it out here. I found the recipe in the morning and showed it to Ally who was having a terrible day and she said, "We must make these!!! How about today!?" So we hit up Walmart and got all of our ingredients and made these delicious cookies at 9:00 last night.
We've decided that Walmart should pay us for advertising Great Value products. I mean, we live off great value brand since we're broke college students!
As we were mixing ingredients and reading the instructions we ran into a snag. We don't have a food processor in the apartment. Because really.. how often do you use one of those?! The oreos had to be ground finely for the truffles and so Ally got out wax paper and the meat tenderizer/mallet and started banging away at those oreos. (pictured below)
Not 5 minutes later we hear banging coming from the apartment below us. Apparently crushing our oreos was too loud for them, even though we put up with far worse noise 24 hours a day from the folks above us. So then considerate Ally tried to crush them softly without making much noise and I'm not sure it did much good.. but the truffles ended up working out just fine!
Hiding the truffles in the cookies!
As soon as these cookies popped out of the oven we were ready to taste, they smelled delicious. The bites with the oreo truffle were the best.. It made our horrific week a little sweeter. :)
Now I'm off to spend the day studying for a massive chem test tomorrow. Pray for me, because I need all the prayers I can get on this one!
