packaging for ugly truffles

hallo there!

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?

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.


look at these! that's party favor material!
