A Little Taste of Heaven :)

 

Oreos Chocolate Truffles <3

Hello Everyone.

After giving a lot of thoughts, I came up with the idea of making Chocolate Truffles😀

I use to make them a lot but sadly there would ever be any left for me in the fridge! They seem to disappear VERY fast. I remember the first time my brother and I made Chocolate truffles, it was like HEAVEN! It is so delicious; we would eat one (or maybe more than just one) after every meal. The first time we ever tried it was at our cousin’s place and I remember asking them where they had gotten it from? My cousin -Marium’s response was –“I made it.” I looked at her like she was 3 headed, saying she’s lying! But she did not lie: x

Of course, I had to ask her how she made it. She ended up giving me the whole recipe and how to make it in complicated steps. At first, it did sound complicated. When my brother and I finally decided to make it ourselves, it was not actually too bad. When you get extra hand, things get done a lot faster. You won’t even imagine that they are made out of OREO!!

Now that I have your attention 🙂

Let me list down the materials and tools you would need

  • Oreos– It can be the regular kind or the double stuffed
  • Cream Cheese– Any would do, however I prefer Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • –  Hershey Chocolate– Come on what else is better? If you prefer another type- go ahead and use that.
  • Aluminum foil– Just a sheet would do.
  • Tray– Any, you can even use plates if you’d want
  • Bowl– Nothing too big.
  • Spoons– You will need two spoons; this would be used for mixing and dipping.
  • Food processor– Any kind that’ll crunch the Oreos.

Steps 

Step 1– Blend the Oreos in the food processor until they are fine like powder

Step 2– Place it in the bowl- put in the cream cheese and mix it either using spoon or your hands- Until dough is formed.

Step 3– Take a little ball and roll them up and place it on your tray or plate

Step 4– Put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes.

Step 5– Melt your chocolate in the bowl

Step 6– Take out the frozen Oreos balls from the freezer and drop them in the melted chocolate bowl one by one

Step 7– Using your spoon toss is around to cover it in chocolate

Step 8– Place it on your tray; make sure to place the aluminum foil sheet on the tray first

Step 9 – You’re done! 😀 Put them back in the fridge to let the chocolate harden a little

Step 10– Enjoy the little taste of Heaven!!

The Main recipe- Oreos, Hersheys Chocolate and Cream Cheese

 

Drop the Oreos in your food processor

 

Blend them until they are crunched up nicely

 

Put the crunched Oreos in your bowl and add in your cream cheese. Mix them with a spoon or your hands.

 

Mix them until you get a dough

 

Take little bit of the dough and make them into a ball. ( Pretend it’s play-doh :P)

 

Get your Hershey Chocolate into another bowl

Melt them. ( Microwave it 30-40 seconds)

 

Gently dip the little Oreos Ball into your bowl of chocolate. Cover it nicely and then place it on your tray or plate.

Your hard work is now done.

But before munching on them- Put them in the fridge for about half and hour – so that way the chocolate hardens.

then SERVE!! 🙂

There are a lot of tutorials on the internet by regular people that just enjoy what they do and want to share how they did it. I think the reason why people do this is to be able to get their ideas and talents out there. I strongly think what compels them to be able to do this would be the support of someone. It can really be anyone. It can either be their friends or family- even teachers. Just like how my Instructor- Professor Smith got us to make something and be able to present it on our blog.

I think I did pretty well on my “project.” Although, it did not really seem like a “project” because I was having fun with it. I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY so since I was making my chocolate truffles and taking PICTURES, it was quite awesome!  I really hope people find my steps easy. It is not as complicated as it may look and trust me- your “hard work” will be worth it!!!

Crafty Wall Art!

Do you ever wonder of interesting ways to liven up your bare, boring walls? Well I got the idea of putting toilet paper rolls to use by creating a fun wall decoration. I decided to share this floral art tutorial because it is not only inexpensive, simple, and fun, but can also be done from right at home because most of the materials needed can be found around the house. The final result of this project is pretty impressive and it will motivate you to think outside of the box.

Tools Needed:

  • 8-10 Toilet Paper Roll
  • Plastic bag
  • A pack of Bobby Pins
  • Spray Paint (color of your choice)
  • Scissors
  • Glue

1. Find all of the materials and place them on an empty workspace. You can substitute some of the tools. For example instead of bobby pins use paper clips. If you do not have spray paint, nail polish or acrylic paint can also be used. If toilet paper rolls are not available towel paper rolls may also be used.  Hot glue, crazy glue or just a regular all purpose glue can be used. Be creative with it.

 

 

2. Grab your roll and flatten it so it can be easily cut. Take your scissor and be prepared to cut your roll into 6 even pieces.

 

 

 

 

 

3. Here it shows the cutting results. This is how the flower petals should look like.

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Take the petals one by one and glue one corner on each petal until you get your desired flower.

 

 

 

 

 

5. Clip all your petals together with the bobby pins until you form a 5 petal flower. Secure the petals well with the pins so you would not have a distorted flower.

 

 

 

 

 

6. Once the glue is completely dried, the flower should not fall apart. Repeat steps 2-5 to create more flowers. Place your flowers on the plastic bag and begin spray painting the flowers with your color of preference. Then let each flower sit and dry separately.

 

 

 

 

7. Voila! Finally, glue all your flowers in any pattern you like. To add stems or other designs to your creation, use your cutout scraps. Now put up your decoration on the wall and show off your re-useable technique!

 

 

 

 

Once I completed my wall creation, I realized how convenient it was since I did not have to go out to buy one, but instead made it on my own and it turned out to be an entertaining activity as well. This craft project actually turned out better than I thought it would and now I can stand back and admire the re-useable toilet paper roll art I made. I feel excited about sharing this tutorial because this way i can help others think of similar art ideas and maybe this can encourage others to create their own decorations. My favorite part of the making process is being able to personalize it any way I please and making it more “me”. I hope others can give this art idea a try and realize how enjoyable it can be to make something from scratch.
