These Truffles Are NOT Trifles

So, I made chocolate truffles last week. I hate to admit it, but it wasn't nearly as difficult as it sounds.

After my cousin made them last year for Christmas, I begged and badgered her to pass along the recipe (which she finally did). Apparently, they originated with her fiancé's mother or grandmother, and they are absolutely TO DIE FOR.

No, really. I don't think you're getting it. These truffles are seriously some of the best things I've ever put in my mouth. Ever. Even after eating about three per day for the past week, I don't think it's possible to get sick of them. They're really rich, but totally worth it. In fact, I've been told (quite explicitly) that giving someone one of these truffles will make them want to have sex with you. I caution you to use this power wisely.

Anyway, I don't have any photographs because they're really unfortunate looking. The recipe involves dipping the truffles in chocolate, and my dipping skills certainly haven't been perfected yet.

So the process is pretty easy. Basically, you throw chocolate cookies of a certain variety and cream cheese into a food processor, food process the shit out of it, and ball it up. Later, you dip it in chocolate and VOILA. Excellence.

Hopefully I've kept this specific enough to entice you while remaining vague enought to not give too much away. Gotta keep a little mystery somehow! Anyway, trust me...they're divine.
