Magic Oreos and an old trick
I have a birthday party for a friend of mine tonight and I thought I would try a new recipe that Rook No. 17 posted in early December, Oreo Truffles on Stick!
Now this recipe was a little difficult for me because Oreo’s are my all time favorite cookie. I could eat Oreos everyday and after I hade my second boy, I did…. That was a lot of weight to lose!
Here are the stages of cooking –
Before the slaughter —
My eyes were starting to tear up at this point… my cookies… Here I am about to eat one…
After the execution. The ingredients were an entire bag of Oreo cookies and one 8 oz package of cream cheese all blended in a food processor…
Now I will admit these don’t look nearly as good as her example, in fact they look a little gross, but they taste so good after that chocolate hardened!
Since the holidays are over I have begun to rummage through my kids toys to seperate what to donate, throw away, and to keep. I attacked their crayon box this morning and I found all their broken crayons and made some new ones… Old Trick but always neat looking in the end.
Finally – I will apologize for the picture quality! The more I explore other peoples blogs and look at their picture quality the more I realize that I truly have a “cheapo crapo camera.” Oh well- at least I have a camera that does the job. However, if anyone wants to buy me a new one I won’t say no! I will even advertise for you.. hint hint..wink wink..Oh whatever, you get the point.
