I have a few things I bake every Christmas because my family would be disappointed if I didn't make them.
For me, I love to try new recipes.
So, I make a few of the tried and true ones...and then I choose a couple new ones each year to try.
The first recipe, I have been making for the last 13 years. It's definately a favorite of friends and family.
These truffles are the real deal. Very smooth, rich and creamy. If you like mint, you will love these!
This will be my 4th year now making this next recipe. Oreo Cookie Truffles. You've probably made them yourself. So easy, only three ingredients and they make a ton. Too bad they aren't fat free! Brady has already been asking when we are making these. I have to package these up quickly for otheres before we eat them all! Last year I found little clear paint cans (added a bow) and put 5 or 6 cookie truffles in each....that way I could give more out! Very easy.
Here's what you'll need:
1 pkg. Oreo Cookies
1 pkg. (8oz) cream cheese
2 pkg. semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
Put cookies in a food processor and mix until they are fine crumbs.
Place crumbs in a big bowl.
Add cream cheese and mix until well blended.
The last step burned enough calories for at least 2 cookie truffles....
Roll cookie mixture into 1 inch in diameter balls.
Freeze balls for about 10 minutes.
Dip balls in chocolate & place on wax paper.
Refrigerate until firm.
Cover & store leftovers in fridge.
Makes about 42 balls.
This last recipe is a super easy one. Another non baking one. I'm noticing a pattern here!
These have a light orange flavor and are really tasty...I love them!
Orange balls really aren't that messy to make...I promise!
I just realized that not only are these recipes non bake...but they are all balls.
My husband will think this is funny. It's like he's still in middle school.
He will probably count how many times I said balls in my post!
Sorry about that...back to a little more maturity here....
I'm linking up with Jen over at Denton Sanitarium.
Go check out what everyone's baking!
