Go Steelers!! and a Nummy Recipe!

Once a year I can bring myself to sit through a football game. Only once. One time. That is all. An of course that game is always the Super Bowl. And I have to admit the only reason I watch that particular game is because it usually involves some sort of party. This year was no exception. The game was good, the company was great and the food was plentiful. I saw this recipe on a friends blog, (thanks Jyl) and had to try them out for myself. The recipe I used was a little different but they were yummy all the same. So feel free to test them out. They are deeee-lish!

And for what it's worth... I was cheering for the Cardinals :(

Oreo Truffles


  • 1 lb Oreo cookies (3 sleeves)

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 lb milk chocolate

  • 1/2 lb white chocolate


    1. Using a food processor, grind cookies to a fine powder.

    2. With a mixer, blend cookie powder, cream cheese and vanilla extract until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese).

    3. Roll into small balls and place on wax-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 45 minutes.

    4. Line two cookie sheets with wax paper. In double-boiler, melt milk chocolate. Dip balls and coat thoroughly.

    5. With slotted spoon, lift balls out of chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet.

    6. In separate double boiler, melt white chocolate.

    7. Using a fork, drizzle white chocolate over balls. Let cool.

    7. Store in airtight container, in refrigerator.

    I had a little melted chocolate left over at the end and it would be a travesty to waste sweet milk chocolate like that so this is what I did instead...

    Just take a cookie cutter and fill it with the left over chocolate. Voila! A homemade chocolate Valentine!
