Fruity Chocolate Truffles? Well, yes, it does sound a bit strange doesn’t it? When my mom sent the recipe along with a package of vanilla wafers for my daughter’s birthday, I have to admit I wasn’t sure I’d like the finished product, but we figured it was worth a try – and Emilie was certainly excited about it. (One thing I have found with letting children cook, is it works best to have just one at a time be the little helper and the rest be watchers. )
Recipe for Fruity Chocolate Truffles
1pkg 8oz cream cheese softened
1 c semisweet chocolate chips
1 c crushed vanilla wafers
1/4 c strawberry preserves
1 1/4 c chopped almonds
A big person melts the chocolate chips in the microwave.
What could be more fun for a little girl than smashing up vanilla wafers?
The finished truffles are refrigerated until it’s time to eat them. They were actually pretty yummy – and Emilie loved making them!
