Easy Oreo Truffles

I plan to make these for New Years. I am not sure if I will make them with Oreos, or use another cookie instead. I will post results if they turn out well (otherwise they were either a disaster or I forgot to either take a photo and make them at all. Leaving you with a lot of options).



Recipe:

  • 1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz.) Oreo Choco­late Sand­wich Cook­ies, finely crushed, divided
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 pkg. (8 squares each) Baker’s Semi-Sweet Bak­ing Choco­late, melted

Prepa­ra­tion:
Mix 3 cups of the cookie crumbs and the cream cheese until well blended (You don’t need to mea­sure out the 3 cups… just reserve about 1 table­spoon of cookie crumbs for the top­ping. When I only used 3 cups for the truf­fles, I ended up with left­over crumb top­ping). Shape into 42 (1-inch) balls.

Dip balls in melted choco­late; place on waxed paper-covered bak­ing sheet. Sprin­kle with remain­ing cookie crumbs.

Refrig­er­ate 1 hour or until firm. Store any left­over truf­fles in tightly cov­ered con­tainer in refrigerator.

The Singing Mountain’s Memory



I have been experimenting with my sewing machine (okay, not mine, but borrowed from Trey’s mom for a long long time), and although difficult it is still fun. I love lace except for the fact it’s a bit difficult to tone down. You know, skin tight lace and my flip flops, hanging down in Florida!

Actually, now that I take a moment to think about it… this may be common. Along the streets at night clubs. Nevermind, maybe I’m not original.

I take my camera with me just about anywhere. I spent a couple of hours at the university’s botanical gardens taking flower photos. Cliche, but you know what?? They’re pretty, and pretty things tend to have their picture taken quite often. Other than school (bboooooringg) I have been watercoloring, helping the boyfriend study when I can, drinking tea (and juice! not pictured), and making cookies out of scratch with whole wheat flour (warning: DO NOT BUY! whole wheat flour tastes funny, not in the giggly way).

Reasons boyfriends are nice to have.

1. They give you hugs, especially when you need them most.

2. They make you laugh whether with or at them ;)

3. They say really nice things about you and make you feel like the prettiest girl in the world.

4. They bring you cookies at 2 in the morning while you’re at work.

There are definitely more, but I think this makes for a nice warm-up. Needless to say the reason I can be awake right now is those cookies! It’s 4:30 in the am and I have yet to sleep; is that dinner or breakfast then?
