Oreo Truffles
These are delicious, easy to make, and easy to make look beautiful with little to no effort.

Ingredients:
1   16 oz. package Oreos
1   8 oz. package softened cream cheese
2   8 oz. packages semi-sweet chocolate baking chips, melted
            OR
1  pkg of semi-sweet chocolate baking chips AND  1 pkg of white chocolate baking chips, melted

Directions:
1. Crush cookies to fine crumbs in food processor. (Cookies can also be finely crushed in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin.) Place crumbs in medium bowl. Add softened cream cheese; mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1-inch in diameter.
(Tip: It helps to both chill the batter before you roll them into balls and before you dip them in chocolate.)
2. Place truffle ball in melted chocolate to coat; roll if necessary. Lift truffle from chocolate using 2 forks (this will allow excess chocolate to run off) place on wax paper-covered baking sheet. (Any leftover chocolate can be stored at room temperature for another use.)
(Tip: If using two different chocolates – dip half the balls in white or semi-sweet chocolate, then use the remaining opposite melted chocolate to drizzle over the top to decorate squiggles on top of each Truffle by putting some of the melted chocolate in a plastic sandwich baggie and snipping a corner to pipe over each truffle.)
3. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator.
Yields about 48 small truffles.

For more holiday enjoyment, we invite you to curl up with Chasing Matt by Nikka Michaels and Eileen Griffin.


Chase Williams is a gorgeous but painfully shy web designer whose long-term boyfriend dumped him for being such a “nice” guy. Instead of meeting his buddies at the local bar for a drink, he helps his elderly neighbor with a DIY project. When a wobbly step ladder leads to a banged up wrist and a trip to the ER, Chase is convinced it’s the worst night ever. Then he meets his handsome nurse.

Matt Owens is the boy next door who loves working in the busy ER. He’s more than ready to clock out from his double shift until he meets his patient in Bed 4.

But will Matt’s attraction to Chase be enough to make him break his rule about never dating patients?

Be Warned: m/m sex

Chasing Matt is available here!

I use almond bark instead of chocolate chips. They are really good and really rich. My son and his friends ask for this for their birthdays.

As a "disaster zombie" in the kitchen, I have to say that this looks really easy for once. Thinking of having a go and surprise my family!
