Easy No-Bake Truffles

Easy No Bake Truffles (via abeautifulmess.com) Easy No Bake Truffles (via abeautifulmess.com)It happened—it’s not even October yet and I’ve already broken out my stash of googly-eye sprinkles. Ha! I try to reserve these for around Halloween because once I get them out, I’ve been known to add googly-eye sprinkles to LOTS of things…many of which aren’t even sprinkle-appropriate.

But can you blame me? Picture it: you make some toast one morning and after you slather on the peanut butter, you top if off with two googly-eyes. Instant toast personality! It’s hard not to smile when your food is staring back at you.

I feel like this will become more appropriate once I have kids (not pregnant—just dreaming). Then I can be that mom who adds googly eyes to their school lunches for the whole month of October.

Life goals. Dare to dream.

Easy No Bake Truffles (via abeautifulmess.com) And speaking of life goals…guys, let’s make some truffles. Top five reasons I love truffles:

1. Delicious
2. Cute (especially if you have googly-eye sprinkles on hand)
3. Easy to make
4. Known to friends when you show up places with these
5. Did I already mention delicious? I feel like it should get on the list at least twice.

You could add a stick and turn these into truffle pops too (just like cake pops). Whoa.

No bake oreo cheesecake trufflesFirst, make and freeze a No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake or any boxed no-bake dessert that you can find at your local grocery store. Up to you. Choose your own adventure here.

How to make no bake trufflesNext, melt some chocolate chips with 2 teaspoons of oil (olive or canola is great) in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave. Do this on high in 30 second increments, stirring in between, just until it’s melted (1 1/2 to 2 minutes total usually).

Now you can use a melon baller to scoop small spheres of frozen cheesecake and cover in chocolate. Then add your sprinkles, chopped nuts or a little sea salt.

Easy No Bake Truffles (via abeautifulmess.com) Once the chocolate sets, I like to place my truffles in mini cupcake liners for a pretty presentation and to keep them from sticking to each other. Store these in the refrigerator for up to a few days or you can freeze them. Don’t make these until you are having friends over, going to a party, or plan to take these into the office because they are highly addictive. You have been warned. xo. Emma
