hi guyssss ! for Valentine's , i made my boyfriend a handmade booklet and a little ornament / keychain which was inspired from Pinterest :
contents of the booklet is private ahaha i'm sorry but basically it's a list of things we should complete before the next Valentine's Day and a compilation of our photos
the ornament thing i was talking about ^ basically , my boyfriend asked my what i was gonna do with all the roses he gave me for Valentine's Day , and i responded by saying "i'll make good use of it" , thus i found this on Pinterest and decided to give it a try ! bought the Christmas balls from an art store and glitter from Popular , threw in a couple of rose petals and voila ! simple , cute and meaningful hehe .
also , my boyfriend have always been hinting me to bake / make him something . so this Valentine's , i decided to fulfil his request HAHAHA . however , Valentine's also clashed with Chinese New Year .. hence i was short on time and had to whip up something quick . knowing my boyfriend loves cookies and cream , i quickly googled for Oreo-related recipes and found a really easy and quick recipe hehe .
yup , Oreo truffles . super hassle-free and can be done within an hour :) so today i'm gonna show you guys how to make this yummy and easy dessert which doesn't even require an oven .
INGREDIENTS I USED :
The procedure is fairly easy ... firstly , leave your cream cheese out to soften for about an hour in room temperature so that it's easier to handle later . Next , crush up your Oreos (including the vanilla cream inside) in a ziplock bag with a rolling pin , or if you'd like to save the mess , blend it up in a blender like i did ! speeds up the time too :) save about a tablespoon of crushed Oreos for later and proceed with the next step .
Mix together the crushed Oreos and the softened cream cheese . this is the fun part !
after you're done , add the batter into moulds or if you'd like , just roll them into little balls . then just keep them in the fridge for about 30 minutes to harden up .
i put mine in heart-shaped moulds in-lieu with V-Day and this is what they look like when they're out . one package of Oreos only yield 8 truffles ... i expected more :(
while your truffles are in the fridge , melt your white chocolate by using a double boiler or microwave . i always prefer the double boiler method because it's so fun to see the chocolate melting HAHAHA .
with your melted chocolate still hot from the heat and your truffles still cold fresh from the fridge , quickly dip your truffles into the chocolate using a spoon and make sure its coated with chocolate completely . this part is tricky since you have to do it quick (explains why i had no time to get some photos of the process) . after you're done coating the truffles , quickly sprinkle some of the leftover crush Oreos over the top of the truffle just to add a bit of decoration . the hot white chocolate will then harden after coating the cold truffles .
place the truffles back into the fridge for about 15 more minutes and you're done !!
result hehe !!! THESE TASTE SUPER YUMMY , AS SIMPLE AS IT LOOKS . trust me !!! you will not regret making these !!!! wish i could eat all of them but i had to give them to my fat boyfriend *wails*
anyway , hope you guys will have fun making these and tell me how it goes if you managed to try it ! thanks for reading x
me and my boyfriend share one major thing in common : we both love to go on binge-eating trips (and then regret it really badly the next day) . sooo whenever i come home on weekends / exeats , the only thing we seem to do each time we meet is EAT and EAT AND EAT ALL DAY EVERYDAY HAHA . we eat so much that i have enough pictures to compile into a post here lol . enjoy !!
okay this was actually in January but i forgot to include it in the January Cafe Hopping post so here it is .. tried out the ever-so-famous Cafe Bene , the branch in Sunway Pyramid ! the Chocolate Devil Brownie (in the skillet) was really good , in fact even better than their signature Cookies and Cream shaved ice . the latter left me disappointed because at the base of the dessert we got served was red bean instead of crushed cookies (as what i expected it to be) ... not a big fan of red bean so i didn't like it :(
this one doesn't really count as cafe hopping since Baskin Robbins is so well-known but whatever HAHA
favourite cafe in KL !!!! dog cafe aka Clawset Cafe located in Damansara Jaya . me and the boyfriend went there on 1st Feb 2015 , waaaay before this cafe became super mainstream and everyone we knew began visiting it .. i say that to tell you guys that I AM A PIONEER VISITOR OF THIS DOG CAFE HUEHUEHUE .
ordered the peanut butter and chocolate waffle and the waitress told me "it might take awhile to prepare" and i said "okay sure" but in my mind i was like "ITS OK TAKE ALL THE TIME YOU WANT HUE HUE MORE TIME FOR ME TO PLAY WITH YOUR PUPPIES" . anyway , food was good !
went for lunch with the best friend after her class one day , since i had an exeat from school . went to Jibby & Co. at Empire Subang , one of her favourite places to eat .
her fried rice and teriyaki chicken ; my open chicken sandwich . sorry i'm not good at remembering food names HAHA
dessert : her greek yogurt with cornflakes and my Belgium waffle with ice-cream ! the waffle was super small and overpriced , not to mention it was really doughy , not fluffy :( the ice-cream was yummy though .
pattern sikit lagi with my #OOTD
another day another place to visit !
for Valentine's my boyfriend (tried to) surprise me by hiding in my house but i knew about it because he texted my mom and my mom accidentally asked me to check her phone HAHA . to add on to that , he accidentally left his shoes outside my house door so it was pretty obvious that i would see it the moment i stepped in :P still , i appreciate his efforts *insert laughing with tears emoji*
ootd for Valentine's !
dessert before dinner @ Wafflemeister , KLCC .
dinner was at Acme Bar and Coffee , Troika ! we went for their Valentine's set dinner which was okay , but i've tasted better things from their menu :/ well i guess that means we should've went ala carte , knowing that food in mass production would taste less satisfactory .
appetizer was Baked Oyster Mornay , Breaded Chicken Strip , Potato Wedges and Petite Salad .
one of the mains was Pomfret Fillet wrapped with Roasted Potatoes , Steamed Courgette stuffed with Scallops and Shrimp with Citrus fruit dressing
being an avid sweet tooth , i was looking forward to dessert but it ended up to be the most disappointing part of our meal :( dessert was Macaroon Ice Cream with Lover's Heart Praline and everything on the plate was overpoweringly sweet .... and if you're wondering how i managed to remember the names of all our plates , you're right i totally don't remember AHAHAHA i googled it .
we compensated by ordering ABC's signature dessert , their Sizzling Brownie !!! loved it , so so good hehe
boyfie's V-Day gift to me , feeling so loved xx
visited Journal by Plan B in Publika , Solaris Dutamas with mommy dearest ! as mentioned before , my mom usually disagrees with my choice of dining venues but Plan B is one of the few she likes :)
ordered their Big Breakfast to share between the two of us !
ended our brunch with their Apple Crumble with vanilla ice-cream ! i love Plan B's desserts hehe
visited Softsrve at Damansara Uptown about a week after their grand opening and it was suuuuper packed ! i could see why though , their Cereal Milk flavoured ice-cream is THE . BOMB . you know its really good when i say i prefer it over the dark chocolate flavoured one . and trust me , because i'm a chocoholic and this is the first time i prefer something over chocolate
it was so good and i loved it so much that me and the bf went there again the next week
AND AGAIN THE WEEK AFTER THAT . AHAHHAA . ^ notice how their ice-cream suddenly got up-sized from the previous one
Pasar malam adventures with my favourite boy !! we literally visited a different pasar malam every week , from Taman Bukit Maluri to Kepong to the biggest one in Setia Alam !! it was weeks and weeks of XXL fried chicken , endless apom balik , ramly burgers , keropok lekor and curry fishballs . oh and calories too .
finally tried Dip N Dip too !!! idk why some people think its too sweet ?? I LOVED IT HAHAHAHAHAHAHA #CHOCOHOLIC
Coconut ice-cream with toppings at Sangkaya , Damansara Uptown . they have a few other branches around KL too !! costed us RM9.90 for this ice-cream , titled "Signature" which is pretty pricey to be honest .. because the ones in Penang are only 1/3 of this price
another tea-time with mommy at Delicious , One Utama ! Teatime promo was free dessert with purchase of coffee ... free dessert was the chocolate eclair and we ordered another Macadamia Cheesecake . was pretty good but we both liked Plan B's Macadamia Cheesecake better .
last one !!!! breakfast at L.Table by Lavender in One Utama with my boyfie again .. french toast and crepes with fruits ! don't you love my simple and boring description of food ? ^__^ anyway i love desserts for breakfast !!! in fact , i love dessert for any meal ; all the better if it's all 3 meals of the day heheh x
conclusion of the post : you now realise that i hang out with my boyfriend way too much and we consume an unhealthy amount of sugar . if you wonder why we're not morbidly obese yet , let me assure you that we are indeed on our way to that destination :)
not from a cafe but i made this salad in an attempt to make myself feel healthier . we all know i'm just lying to myself lol .
thanks for reading and catching up with me , love you guys ! xx
