Chocolate Mint Truffles… Gladly Given Away

So glad to be wrapping up the Bloggy Giveaway hosted by the lovely and fair Shannon.

Thank goodness for online random number generators. I would have been completely swayed by all the ‘it’s by birthday!,’ ‘my very favorite,’ and ‘i’m pregnant’ and ‘you’re my favorite, Kelsey.’ Wait. No one tried that last one. That one would have totally worked, y’all.

And the winner is Piseco! Take a sec and visit her blog, Mind Games, and tell her congratulations! Actualy, I just got back from there, and in her current post she says she has better than average luck at giveaways. Well, I’d say so, and I just wonder what the online “random” number generator has to say to THAT. Apparently the Random Number Generator has a bit of a crush on Piseco.

For all of you who asked, the recipe is easy.

Chocolate MInt Truffles

1 package oreos (use mint like i did, or the plain ones are really good, too)
1 8 oz. package Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
almond bark

Make the oreos into a fine dust of crumbs, using a food processor. Mix with cream cheese. (using hands works the best)

Form into 1 inch balls on cookie sheet. Freeze. Dip into white almond bark, or chocolate bark. Freeze. Drizzle with opposite color bark, melted chocolate, or sprinkle the mint ones with chopped up Andes mints.

They keep well, mail well, and I like them best served slightly cold.

Darn that Random Number Generator for not randomly generating my number. This giveaway was the one I REALLY wanted to win. (As much as the $50 cash, really. How sad is it that I love chocolate that much?)

Thanks for the recipe even though-sigh- I’m sure they taste much better if someone else makes them. Come read my latest entry and be in awe of my incredible baking skills.

Omgoodness!!! Kelsey sent me some of these last year and they were VERY yum. I thought of them when I actually made Christmas candy this year with melted chocolate chips and oreos. To die for!

Hi Kelsey.perfect timing to read your blog. My oven is broke and my daughter wanted to make non-bake cookies yesterday. we didn’t but we can today! We also have been given so many packages of Oreos we are sick of them (nabisco promo from client) So this will be a nice change. My Husband loves truffles…guess I better make that appt, for lifeline screening. Thanks for sharing recipe. I like Marshmallows on a stick so I’m going to wrap the mix around a marshmallow see how it turns out.Cindy
