Pairs Well With
This recipie is all over The Nest, but I finally had a chance to try them. SO YUMMY! And super easy, too.
How to How to Easily Dip Truffles:
Place truffle ball in melted chocolate to coat; roll if necessary. Lift truffle from chocolate using 2 forks (this will allow excess chocolate to run off) before placing on wax paper.
You can also substitute other cookies for the Oreos...I had some with Nutter Butters also and they were delicious as well!
