Birthday Brownie Truffles



I know, I know... it's October and everyone is in the mood for Halloween stuff and fall recipes, but I just had to throw in a new favorite recipe of mine that I made for my Mother-In-Law's Birthday.  The good thing about these is that you could just dip them in orange chocolate and decorate with Halloween sprinkles to make them seasonally relevant. Or you can just make them pink because pink is pretty and who doesn't like to each chocolate dipped in pink chocolate??  Did I just say the word "pink" enough? I think I did, okay I'm done, for now....  Can you guess what my favorite color is?

Ingredients:
Box Brownie Mix - Ghiradelli Double Chocolate is my favorite
Eggs & Vegetable Oil, for brownies
2 oz Cream Cheese
Wilton Pink Melting Chocolate
Sprinkles of your choice

Directions:
Bake the Brownies per the instructions on the box.  This may vary depending on which box you buy. Be careful not to overbake these.

Once the brownies are cooled cut off the crust and place the brownies into a bowl with the 2 oz of cream cheese. {I know, 2 oz is a weird amount but I honestly just cut off about a quarter of the block and used that}.

Mix the brownies and cream cheese together.  I used a spoon, but it might have been easier just to use the KitchenAid.

Place wax paper onto a cookie sheet.  Use a cookie scoop and roll brownie mixture into balls.  I made 21 balls.  Put brownie balls into freezer and let cool for 30 minutes.

Melt chocolate using a double broiler.  Now if you're like me and don't have a double-broiler you can either use a glass bowl on top of a pot with 2 inches of boiling water or a pan on top of a pan.  Make sure the water is not touching the bottom of the pan.   Stir frequently until the chocolate is melted.

Throw brownie balls into melted chocolate one at a time.  Use a fork to fish out the brownie and tap it on the side of the bowl to get off excess chocolate.  Sprinkle immediately.

TIPS:
Use a Cookie Scoop, this thing is a life changer!  You can use it to make cookies, cupcakes, cake balls, ice cream scoop I use it all the time.  Buy one here -

I have been melting chocolate for a long time and I always used the Microwave, DO NOT USE THE MICROWAVE! I can't tell you how many times I have messed up my chocolate because I overheated it.
