What you need to buy:
While the insides of your truffles are hardening in the freezer, start chopping! Chopping up the chocolate makes it much easier to melt evenly. I put all of my chocolate into a bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Take it out, stir it, and put it back in for 1 more minute. It should be completely melted at this point.
Now its time for the dipping! Start dipping your truffles into the melted chocolate, make sure you completely cover them. Take 2 forks and lift them up one by one and let the chocolate drip off (I use the sides of the bowl to wipe the bottom of the fork. That way, there's no dripping chocolate when you transfer them out of the bowl). Place your chocolate dipped truffles on to wax or parchment paper to avoid sticking.
You can use those leftover 8 cookies for garnish at this point if you'd like. Just crush and sprinkle. I personally like to use the excess chocolate and dip my fork in and drizzle back and forth in rapid movements. It looks a little fancier that way ;)
I forgot to take a pic of the finished product, oops. There were only 3 that didn't fit into my container, so they were still here when I got back home. I took a picture of the 3 rejects that weren't as cute as the rest, haha. Here they are! NONE were left after the BBQ and EVERYONE thought i was gifted ;)
Ta da! If you make them you HAVE to let me know what you think!
