Oreo Truffles

As promised, I'm back in 1 week's time! I really hope that this can be maintained. 
Nowadays I really need to squeeze some time out for making 1 thing each week. 
Please bear with my plain pictures as I don't have much time to decorate that much. 

I will normally start to do my stuffs when baby is asleep or my mum is taking care of her. This is considered as my ME time =) Everyone needs it!

So this week I made some simple Oreo Truffles. Quite a sinful one (in fact double sinfulness) but I'm sure all chocolate lovers will like it! 
I will binge on these when I'm home after a long day, somehow it perks me up!

Coated with chocolate and so rich & soft in there!

While I'm taking the photos of the truffles, 
I placed Lovern in the exersaucer to let her watch Babytv, double enjoyment for her! 
Her usual blur look! 

Hehe..this will be a short post, I got to run. 
It's 11.30pm now and baby is not asleep yet. 
Shes seriously a night owl!
So I'll see you guys next week again! =) Have a great week ahead!

Featured in Newspaper - Chocolate Truffles Coated with Oreo Cookie Crumbs

Hi everybody!
 I'm finally back after a year! Motherhood is always associated with the word busy, 
yet it's adventurous! I'm learning everyday with my baby =)
My passion for cooking and baking is always there, but I only have limited time everyday which really did not give me much chance to cook something, and needless to say bake.

My baby Lovern is gonna be 10 months soon =) In the beginning, she was such a cry baby and made me really frustrated, nearly sank into depression! As for now, she's really cheeky and cheerful! We love her sooooo much!  Since she's much more manageable now, it's time for me to continue my blogging journey!

 This was taken when she was 3 days old. 
She look so different now!

 We love to put head accessories for her, 
just love to make fun of her!

 Now 9 months+ , able to blabber stuffs and stand up with support. 
More fun to play with!

Talking about blogging again, 
I decided to blog again because a timely reminder came by last week. 
I was featured in the newspaper meant for secondary students to read and was told to show a simple dessert, I decided on Chocolate Truffles Coated with Oreo Cookie Crumbs.
The reporter and photographer came over to my house to shoot the steps and final product, 
It's quite an experience for me~ interesting!
These truffles are pretty yummy and really easy to make!
Pop one into your mouth and you don't need much effort to chew them,
it just literally melts inside. Chocolaty yummy!

Here's the newspaper article and recipe in Mandarin.
I will include the English version at the end of this post~

I hope the students will try to make these! I'm sure they will be satisfied with the outcome! 

As for me, I will try my best to update my blog with at least 1 new recipe per week! 
So....stay tuned while I prepare for my next blog post! Till then!
