Ugh... Annoying never-ending rain... What a perfect drag to make Halloween night just a little more trick than treat. Good thing there will be lots of candy (and by candy I mean food, drinks, parties, fun) at the end of it all to compensate for all the effort.
So before venturing out into the night to join the zombies & vampires, I will be staring at these truffles during the day. I made them a while ago, back when the sun was still around. I remember trying to hurry up to take the pictures as the heat would have made these yummies melt. Oh... how I miss summer...
Don't get me wrong though, I'm all reminiscing about the weather by looking at these pics, but the truffles were very good too! LOL! Very easy to make. Fancy-looking and delicious. What else can you ask for?
Makes about more than a dozen to two, depending on the size of your truffles
* 6 chocolate chip cookies (Chips Ahoy type)
* 1/2 banana, mashed
* 1/2 C chocolate chips
* 1/4 C Nutella
* chopped nuts, coconut flakes, cocoa powder
Mash the cookies in a ziploc bag with a rolling pin. Add the mix into the mashed banana. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for about 2 minutes on medium low power. Then mix it well into the banana cookie mix along with the Nutella.
Cover and refrigerate to harden a bit before forming into balls and rolling them in your favorite toppings.
The texture gets better the next day. But if you have as much patience as me when it comes to food, you will never find out!!!! Enjoy!!!!
