From hosting a shrimp boil, celebrating holidays, making homemade scratch art paper, sewing gifts and throwing parties to cooking delicious food, you will find it all here at Skip To My Lou. The site is full of free patterns, downloads and I hope plenty of inspiration. Please hang out with me awhile and check it out!
This week I am going to highlight some yummy gifts.
We are extra lucky to have Sandy, from theReluctant Entertainer, here sharing a delicious recipe for Oreo Truffles. You will want to check out her new site. It has been totally re-done and looks fabulous. Also, if you are a subscriber or want to subscribe she has a new feed.
I Love OreoTruffles. They’re so easy for kids to get into the kitchen and to help make!
Kids can use their own creativity by adding different flavors and decorations – to make their very own truffles! My daughter, Abby, just whipped up a batch this past weekend and had a ball decorating them herself. I think she has the recipe memorized now!Remember it’s not about perfection
I didn’t stand over my daughter making sure these truffles turned out perfectly round, or that they were dipped exactly right. She had success in making them her own, and I will say it got a little messy!
What a delicious tasty treat to give away to teachers, grandparents or even neighbors!
18 oz. package of OREO Cookies
8 oz. package of Cream Cheese, softened
16 oz. Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted
(I doubled the recipe using ½ fat-free and ½ regular cream cheese. I also used dark chocolate, which I bought in the bulk section at Winco grocery store.)
Mix cream cheese and crushed (fine crumbs) Oreo cookies together
Roll dough into 1 inch balls, putting on wax or parchment paper
Refrigerate for 30 minutes
Dip balls, using toothpicks or a spoon, into melted chocolate (use double broiler or microwave on 50%)
Refrigerate another 30 minutes until chocolate hardens
Anyway we can help our kids to be successful in giving it is encouraged in my home – and it usually is centered on food!
Decorate and Devour! Or package them up and give them away!
