So do you wanna be a Chef? Me too! Join me in my adventures to be the ultimate chef in our dreams! Here's a series of easy-to-do recipes you can follow and do at home.

For my first post, let me share with you a quick dessert recipe that will be loved by everyone!-- Oreo Truffles. For the ingredients, you need the following:

RECIPE NAME: Oreo Truffles
CAPTAIN CHEF RECIPE #: 1
PREPARATION TIME: 15-30 minutes

INGREDIENTS:
2 packs Oreo
1 pack cream cheese 
1 pack white chocolate (for coating)

TOOLS:
Forks (for mixing)
Double Broiler (or you can just use a pan of hot water, and pyrex for the 2nd container)
Plates 

STEPS:
(1) Crush the oreo cookies until smooth and fine. Do not remove the cream because it adds taste to your truffles.
Finely crushed Oreos
(2) Mix the cream cheese with crushed oreos until they are blended and smooth

Mix the cream cheese and Oreos together
(3) Form the mixture into balls using your hands
(4) Place in refrigerator for a minimum of 15 minutes
(5) For the mean time, melt the white chocolate chips
Fresh white chocolate chips
Make sure not to put the white chocolate chips in direct heat. Use only boiling water in the bottom pan to melt it. 

Melted white chocolate
(6) Take the chocolate cream balls in the ref, and dip it one by one in the melted chocolate mixture. The chocolate will stick into the frozen balls because of temperature difference.
(7) Put some crushed oreos or any other toppings you want in the truffles
(8) Place in refrigerator for chilling/ freezing for a minimum of 30 minutes.

CAPTAIN FOOD REVIEW:
These Oreo Truffles are easy to make and are really delicious! It's not super sweet, so you can definitely enjoy several pieces after a heavy meal. For an added creaminess, you can add more cream cheese.

How about you? Did you try it? What's your rating?

Cheers,
