  • We love these.
    Oreo Truffles
    1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz) Oreo Cookies
    1 package (8 oz) Cream cheese softened
    2 pkg. (8 oz. each) semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted per package directions
    or Chocolate candy coating discs
    Crush cookies in food processor add softened cream cheese. Blend until completely combined. Remove to a bowl and store in refrigerator to completely chill (1 hour?) Remove and form into balls, teaspoon size or tablespoon size. (I like to use a small cookie scoop-like an ice-cream scoop, but smaller-so they’re all the same size-but that’s not necessary) Place on foil or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Place in refrigerator again to chill, (1 hour), or place in freezer for about 15 minutes at least. Melt chocolate as package directs and dip ball in and replace on baking sheet. (Any leftover chocolate can be stored at room temperature for another use.) Put a small amount of chocolate in zip lock bag, melt in

  • I make a lot of Christmas candy ... more this year than ever. I think my favorite is peanut brittle. Also make fudge, bark, and chocolates.

  • I normally do a bunch of kinds of fudge, though I didn't this year. I start with a base recipe then change it up for different varieties - butterscotch, white chocolate raspberry, peanut butter, smores, toffee, and then just plain straight chocolate.
