i've been on an oreo truffle making spree. namely because i can't get them to look like everyone else's beautiful perfectly chocolate dipped truffles, and this makes me sad. mine are ugly and lumpy and monstrous. but i persist, and end up with obscene amounts of truffles stored in various tupperware containers, stuffed in various corners of the fridge.
then i force them on the roommates. they don't seem to mind.
ugh. they are so ugly.
someone suggested that i drizzle white chocolate on them. that is really smart, i thought. so that's what i did.
and you know what? they were still ugly.
and do you know why? because i suck at drizzling chocolate.
UGH. see?? gross.
so, then i said to myself: self, what ALWAYS works to make something way cuter than it really is? CUTE PACKAGING!
it's true. you could wrap a rabid whale and people would fight tooth and nail over it. stick that thing in a kraft box and ribbon it up. instant allure! packaging never fails. so i set the ugly truffles in silver baking cups and put them into plastic cubes. TA-DA!
