Ooo, I have been off lately. You see, I normally post at 5-6am. The house is quiet, kids asleep and the hubby is off to work. The past few days…has had someone waking up earlier than usual…
yes, we got a little parrot. A green cheeked yellow sided Conure. He hatched on my birthday. Coincidence? I don’t know…anyway, somebody has been waking up very early to say good morning to our new friend.
That has thrown me off schedule . Don’t worry- I am sure I will get back.
Now, about these truffles:
They are an adaptation of some cookies n cream ones I had seen somewhere else.
My hubby loathes Oreoes. (I know, crazy, right?!)
And I am fond of white chocolate- which some argue really isn’t chocolate and, I agree. Because I love chocolate, too.
Depends on my mood.
By the way, if you crave chocolate something fierce, it could mean you need more magnesium. Chocolate contains magnesium. Lil’ tidbit I remember from my other life…
Oh- you guys will love this. No baking. Very little mixing. Oh yeah… nice weeknight treat.
Or- if you dropped the plate of chocolate malt sandwich cookies and now have nothing sweet in the house. True story. the day after I made them- BAM on the floor. And %#@* !!! I couldn’t just call the dogs in to clean it up for me. (Chocolate, you know..) so I had to run the vacuum at 8pm. Not fun. Grrr.
So- get yourself a bag/package of cream filled cookies.
Now: Destroy those pretty little cookies!!!Muahahahaha! (insert thunder and lightning)
Make em like this:
Melt 4 oz of cream cheese. I used the microwave. It worked.
Add to your destroyed cookies.
Melt a bag of chocolate chips. Slowly in the microwave. You know the routine, 25 seconds, stir, 20 seconds, stir. Keep stirring till it’s nice n smooth.
I tried a toothpick. No. I tried my fingers. NO. I tried a fork. Okay.
I huffed and I puffed and I got them all coated!
I had some extra crumbs, so while they were wet, I did a little sprinkling. you can, too.
