That’s right Girl Scout Truffles, do I have everyone’s attention?
I have to say I just couldn't take it anymore. After being bombarded at Payless, Stater Brothers, Target, Trader Joe's, and Old Navy I simply swiped those girl scout…cookies up and got my brain to work on a proper way to convert them into decadence.
I so succeeded. All my friends told me so and they are fine upstanding citizens…on Mondays.
Actually my husband just ate the last one. Don’t worry I will make him pay for it later…into the week.
This recipe is delightfully borrowed from me! I paid myself in wine & Cheese, and feel properly compensated. So if you have someone that needs a treat, perhaps a truffle made out of one of the 85 boxes of Samoa’s you have would work?
INGREDIENTS (Makes 18 truffles)
(1) box of Samoas
4 oz Mascarpone Cheese, softened
1 cup quick cooking oats
½ bag of semi -sweet chocolate chips
4 tbs of butterscotch chips
Place the Samoa Cookies into your food processor and blend into fine crumbs. I did mine in batches because a Samoa is one tough cookie (no pun here at all!). Place the cookies in a large bowl, then add in the Mascarpone and quick cooking oats. Blend well, place in your refrigerator for 30 minutes. This will make them easier to roll.
Once properly chilled, roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a parchment lined pan. Place back in your refrigerator for another 20 minutes to set up again.
Next place your chocolate & butterscotch chips in a double boiler over a medium high heat. Stir with a wooden spoon until the chips are completely melted.
Now we get messy. I dropped each truffle in to the double boiler until coated. I retrieved it by poking the truffle with a metal skewer and then tapping the excess off. Place each truffle on your parchment lined pan.
As per the picture above, after all the truffles were coated I added a topping. I used a kids medicine syringe to suck up the melted chocolate then squeezed a design on to each truffle. You could also use nuts, cocoa powder or anything else your heart desires.
Chill truffles in the refrigerator for 2 hours before eating.
Now go find a Girl Scout..cookie
