Chocolate Truffles with Brownie Coating, dipped in chocolate.
I love when I get strokes of genius ideas like these Brownie Chocolate Truffles.
Why you should make these Brownie Chocolate Truffles? Let’s talk about that.
Okay, so this post is for my fellas out there. I am going to try to convince you to want to make these Brownie Chocolate Truffles. First, let’s talk about the uncomfortable…Valentine’s Day. Yea it is coming up. Now I know some of you purposely pull off an argument or even break up with your girlfriend just so you can avoid this “Day of Love”. If you don’t do either of these things, you either forget or just don’t get as excited as most women in the world around this time ( I get excited because my birthday and Valentine’s Day are 4 days apart so that means double the gifts…EEK!). I get it. It’s a day where you are suppose to be romantic and you don’t understand why women get so excited about this day. Romance is uncomfortable for most of you, and that I get. But I want to offer you a new way of looking at romance and it all starts with this first statement that I am getting ready to say, YOU’RE THINKING TOO MUCH ABOUT IT! I mean men really, I know us gals can be a bit emotional and irrational at times, but when it comes to romance and making us feel loved, it is the easies thing in the world. You just have to stop thinking less logical, and more emotional.
For instance, have you ever seen the short movie “It’s Not About the Nail”? Or have you seen this clip featuring Phil from Modern Family? These are two short clips that gives you insight into how women sometimes think. Now, don’t try to make sense out of it, just go with it. Trust me, your love lives will go a lot better when you stop trying to make sense out of our emotional and when we stop trying to understand why you have to be in front of the TV 9/12 months in the year every damn Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (if you count college sports). But you can totally wow your lady any day in the year without doing some grand gesture. You see, with women it is always the thought that counts. If you cook something and it does not come out great, we are still going to love you for it because you tried! That is the whole point. Sure you can always throw money at Valentines Day or our Birthdays but try to do something that your lady would never expect, like making these Brownie Chocolate Truffles.
I’ll tell you a secret, women find it very sexy when men cook. Furthermore, bake! Oh yes, it is a turn on, for me, to see a man in an apron in the kitchen mixing cake batter. Mmmmm…. give me a moment…..okay I’m back! I don’t care if you make something out of a damn box, baking is going to get you so many panty cool points you won’t know what to do with them all. Now, I am a “City Girl Making Cooking Look Sexy”, right? Well trust your girl and believe me when I say making these are definitely sexy! Here is what you do, you go ahead and make these truffles, go to Target and buy something that looks like a candy box, personalize the box (this is where she will keep her jewelry or romantic letters from you in), and write a romantic letter (no card) that will go in her new keepsake box. You can also cook a romantic dinner before this magical moment take place. OH, and once you have had dinner, given her the box of truffles, sit on the couch with soft music playing in the background, and…..talk….AND…listen! Later on that night she will take you on a trip to “Pantyville” (for the married folks of course). If you’re lucky, you will have a nice long weekend stay. Still intimidated by making these truffles? Don’t be, I have a video below where I take you step by step. Now get in there and start practicing and enjoy your trip to “Pantyville”.
Check out the recipe video!
- 1 Box Brownie Mix (including the required ingredients egg, water, and vegetable oil)
- 1 lb. Milk Chocolate, chopped and melted
- 15 (assortment of chocolate truffles and chewy caramels)
- Preheat oven to 350 Degrees and spray a 9X13 rectangle baking dish. Set aside
- Empty the brownie mix in a large bowl and mix with oil, water, and eggs (according to the package) and mix well until smooth. Pour the brownie batter into the baking dish and spread evenly. Bake for 25 minutes and allow to cool at room temperature for 25 minutes.
- Once the brownies are cool but not hot, use a cookie scooper or large spoon and scoop out the brownie and flatten with fingers. Place the truffle or caramel in the middle and wrap the brownie around the candy. Pinch the brownie around the candy and set aside. You can also make large brownie balls too. Once finished, place in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes to chill.
- Melt the chocolate and dip the truffles into the melted chocolate. Place on parchment paper or silicone mat. Allow to set. Place in airtight container until ready to serve.
