Yes, I know, treats aren't just for Christmas, but I tend to not cook/prepare 'junk food' very often, so at Christmas time I splurge a little. My favorite confections to make during the season are Oreo Truffles! And they are SO easy to make.
1 bag Oreos
1 brick cream cheese
Almond Bark or chocolate chips to coat (may use white, milk chocolate, or semi sweet)
In a food processor, pulverize oreos. Add cream cheese and mix until thoroughly blended. Refrigerate until able to easily roll into walnut sized balls. Melt whatever you are using to coat the balls, and dip. Allow to dry on wax paper until set.
You can use whatever kind of oreo you like. Some of my favorites are the mint, peanut butter, and original. I prefer not to use the double stuff because the large amount of cream seems to give less of an oreo taste.
What are your favorite treats?
It's going to be a busy weekend. Son has a wrestling tournament today, and son and daughter have a band concert tomorrow, so not alot of down time for writing. The coming week will also be full with grooming pups for Christmas. If things get a little too crazy this week, Merry Christmas everyone!~
