Oreo Truffles Are My Go-To Holiday Recipe — I Make Them Every Single Year
Start writing a post

My favorite thing about the holidays is DESSERT. Especially around this time of year, my sweet-tooth goes bonkers.

A family tradition that my Mom, sister, and I have done since I was a mere three years old is making Oreo Truffles before Christmas time. Along with gingerbread house decorating, cookie baking, and putting up lights outside, this tradition is one that I look forward to the most every year because of how delicious these treats are!

I hope that you enjoy these tasty treats as much as I do and that they might bring a new tradition to your family during the holidays.

Ingredients:

(Makes about 26 truffles)

- One packaged block of Philidelphia Original Cream Cheese

- One bag of Oreos

- 2 bags of Semi-Sweet Tollhouse Mini Chocolate Chips

- Wax Paper

- Grinder to chop up Oreos or a plastic-gallon bag and a rolling pin

- Bowl and wooden spoon for mixing

- Cookie Sheet

- Microwave and bowl for melting chocolate

Recipe:

1. Soften cream cheese by leaving it out while you prepare the Oreos.

2. Put Oreos into a grinder/crusher or place in a gallon plastic bag and smash with the rolling pin until it is a fine powder.

3. Further soften cream cheese in the microwave for 10 seconds.

4. Set aside a small portion of the crushed Oreo powder for later.

5. Mix cream cheese and Oreo powder in a bowl with a wooden spoon (or your hands once it begins to form) until both ingredients are completely together.

6. Chill 'batter' in the fridge for 10 min and prepare a cookie sheet with wax paper on top.

7. Form medium-sized balls of the batter and place them on the cookie sheet spaced at least 1 inch apart.

8. Place balls in the fridge for another ten minutes to chill.

9. After they are done chilling, place the semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwavable safe bowl and melt them until satisfied.

9. Coat the balls in the melted chocolate and sprinkle a bit of Oreo powder on the top as the final decoration.

10. Lastly, chill in the fridge for at least one hour before eating!

These truffles should be stored in the fridge and will last about 2-3 weeks if stored properly.

Happy Holidays!

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.

If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
