Make Dessert Sparkle: Glittery Chocolate Raspberry Cookie Bombs

May 17, 2013

Chocolate Raspberry Cookie Bombs Served With Sparkling JuiceJust a dash of glitz and glamour can brighten the entire room … and your whole day!

So the next time you’re hosting a lavish dinner at home, bring some razzle-dazzle to your soiree by showering your dessert with sparkles. To help you find the perfect recipe for your party, we gave our buttercream truffles a scintillating makeover with extra edible glitter, fresh ’n’ fancy raspberries, and Cheryl’s delectable cutout cookies. Here’s how to make a delicious treat that really shines!

What You’ll Need

12 Cheryl’s unfrosted cutout cookies

Two tubs Cheryl’s buttercream frosting (any flavor)

30-70 raspberries (30 for truffles, 40 for garnish)

24 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Edible glitter

Directions

Crushed Cheryl's Cookies

  1. First, mix the cutout cookies in a blender until they’ve turned into fine crumbs. If you don’t have a blender, the cookies are so soft that you can simply seal them in a big sandwich bag and crush them by hand! Twelve cookies will yield about 3 cups of cookie crumbs. We split the crumbs into two 1 ½-cup batches so we could make two different flavored truffles.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, blend the cookie crumbs and two tubs of room-temperature buttercream frosting in any flavor of your choice. Since we split the cookie crumbs into two bowls of 1 ½ cups crumbs each, we used one tub of fudge buttercream frosting in one bowl, and one tub of vanilla buttercream frosting in the other. Stir until the crumbs and frosting are well-combined. Cool the mixture in the freezer for a half hour.

  3. Once the cookie-frosting combo is nice and chilly, take it out of the fridge. Take 1 tablespoon of the mixture and roll it into a ball, then flatten it out into a disk with your palms. Wrap the cookie-buttercream disk all the way around a raspberry and roll it into a ball again. Repeat this step until you’ve used up all of your cookie-buttercream mix. Two tubs of frosting will yield about 30 truffles. Chill the truffles in the freezer for another half hour.

  4. Pour 24 ounces of semisweet chocolate chips into a bowl and melt them in the microwave for 2 minutes, making sure to stop and stir the chocolate every 30 seconds. Once the chocolate is completely melted and smooth, take the truffles out of the refrigerator and use a fork to individually dip them into the chocolate. Set them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper, and then sprinkle them with lots of edible glitter (or any other sparkly topping you might like) before the chocolate cools. Pop them in the freezer one last time for a half hour or until the chocolate hardens.

For an elegant presentation that’ll make your truffles look even more radiant, serve them on a shimmery cake platter alongside some champagne or sparkling juice. Don’t forget to drop a couple of raspberries into each champagne glass; they’ll look like brilliant little jewels for your drinks!

How to Make Buttercream Truffles With Cheryl’s Buttercream Frosting

April 8, 2013

Buttercream TrufflesYou already know that Cheryl’s buttercream frosting is scrumptious enough to eat straight out of the tub. But wanna know an even better way to enjoy that soft, sugary goodness? Dipping it in chocolate, of course! Check out this easy buttercream truffles recipe and find out how you can turn your favorite icing into bite-sized pieces of chocolate heaven!

What You’ll Need

2 (or more) tubs Cheryl’s buttercream frosting in your favorite flavors
2 12-ounce bags dark or semisweet chocolate chips
Sprinkles or other toppings (optional)

Directions

Chocolate and Strawberry Buttercream Truffles

  1. Refrigerate the buttercream frosting until it’s hardened but still moldable. Using a spoon, scoop out a teaspoon of frosting and quickly roll it into a ball with your hands. Repeat until you’ve used up the entire tub of frosting. Place all the buttercream balls onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and place them in the freezer for a half hour.
  2. While the buttercream balls are in the freezer, place the baking chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate until it is completely melted, stirring the chocolate every 30 seconds.
  3. Using a fork, dip the frozen buttercream balls into the chocolate and place them back onto the cookie sheet. (Do it quickly so the buttercream doesn’t melt!) Top the truffles with sprinkles or any other topping of your choice. (We used edible glitter.) Freeze the truffles again until the chocolate coating has hardened.

You can even add some extra flavor and texture to your truffles by topping them with an exciting garnish like crunchy coconut, crushed almonds, or cookie crumbs. Prop them up on a pretty cake platter and you have a gourmet dessert that’s perfect for any occasion!

How will you create your own sensational bonbons out of your favorite icing flavors?

Holiday Entertaining with Cheryl’s

November 29, 2011

Welcome back cookie & brownie fans!

The Holiday season has officially started! That means, buying presents, decorating your home, sending out greeting cards, and the always festive holiday party. While it’s the most wonderful time of year, it’s also the most stressful, so let Cheryl’s help take some of the work off your plate (well, put something better on them!)

Mrs. Beasleys chocolate frosting bundt cake Cheryls
On Wednesday, November 15, the whole Cheryl’s family worked together to be the shining star of our media Holiday party at our Los Angeles Mrs. Beasley’s location. Top tier media guests and influential bloggers such as Associated Press, Los Angeles Times, NPR, Rockin’ Mama, Romy Raves, Santa Monica Times, The Recessionista and more joined us for an evening of gourmet cookies, delectable cakes, brownies, and festive Holiday trends and tips provided by Celebrations.com expert Rachel Hollis (“I Do Over”). And lucky you! We’re sharing some of them here.

A couple of great decorating tips for your Holiday party can be done easily and without breaking budget! Transform your space into a trendy holiday winter wonderland by repurposing things you already have. Hollis placed candied almonds within decorative champagne glasses and laid them out on the dessert table. She also repurposed the gift boxes featured within a Cheryl’s cookies holiday gift tower to create a festive tiered plated dessert tray, and used candle holders to place the Miss Grace famed bundt cakes, along with other dessert creations. These tips make for a fun, festive, and creative way to display all that your Holiday party has to offer (and we know your friends will be marveled by your ingenious skills).

Cheryls truffle cookie milk snowmen Another key feature of the event came from an entertaining trend quickly gaining momentum, especially around Holiday entertaining: having a festive dessert table for guests, and a designated kid’s dessert table. For the main dessert table, Hollis incorporated her festively fun Holiday entertaining ideas such as the repurposed champagne glasses, candle holders, and Cheryl’s cookie gift tower plates. For the children’s holiday dessert table, Hollis used desserts from Cheryl’s, Mrs. Beasley’s, and Miss Grace to create delicious elements for children (and adults!) to enjoy. She placed Cheryl’s mini brownies on popsicle sticks, created milk jars with snow man heads using Mrs. Beasley’s famous truffle cookies, and added a child’s touch of décor to Cheryl’s buttercream frosted snowflake cookies. It was certainly a fun and deliciously festive time for all!


No need to fret about all the Holiday entertaining duties you’ve given yourself this Holiday season. With Cheryl’s family of desserts, we make Holiday Entertaining a breeze. Try out some of our tips and tricks this Holiday for a fun time guaranteed!

 We realize that you depend on our pictures when making decisions about what gifts to send to friends and family. That’s why we make sure that each picture we take conveys our quality and freshness. We want you to “taste” the sweet buttercream frosting and yummy chocolate chips in the pictures when you shop and we expect your gift recipients to be impressed with the gifts you choose! In fact, we guarantee it!   

Yes, it’s true we do “sample” the goodies at the photo shoots! It is so much fun to be the first to try new cookies and brownies and now we are working on picking our favorites from our newest dessert and gift collection – Miss Grace Cakes. And those Mrs. Beasley chocolate truffle cookies are fabulous! We are looking forward to photographing (and tasting!) all of the new products for this fall! Stay tuned!
