Oreo Truffles

Oreo Truffles

Easy to make, even easier to eat! So good!

Merry Christmas all! I just had to share my newest “discovery” today, which now I’m seeing everywhere. My daughter introduced me to Oreo Truffles. Honestly, I wouldn’t have thought to make them. Oreos? Really? Don’t make that same mistake – get yourself some Oreos and good chocolate and make them, preferably now.

White Chocolate Christmas Popcorn Party Mix

White Chocolate Christmas Popcorn Party Mix

This is addictive: white chocolate, m&m's, pretzels & mini marshmallows! So amazing!

Freshly popped popcorn from the stove-top or an air popper, maybe with a touch of butter & a little salt – is there anything better? Well, yeah, there is! Popcorn tossed with goodies and drizzled with white chocolate. Now you’re talking!

Rustic Chocolate Truffles

Usually you’ll find me making truffles in the winter – maybe for Christmas or New Year’s but today it’s July. I guess anytime is a good time for truffles, but beware – truffles and excess heat don’t mix. These poor babies got a little warm and then I tossed them in the fridge so they lost a bit of their gorgeous shine.

Snowy chocolate truffles - a Martha Stewart Recipe - easy!!

Snowy Chocolate Truffles

 A simple but delish rustic chocolate truffle rolled in powdered sugar

I just love a simple, rolled truffle, don’t you? Well, I won’t turn down one with a gorgeous chocolate coating, but for making, you can’t beat these, tossed in confectioner’s sugar or cocoa, and besides, we all know the center is the best part anyway, right?

Guest Post on Go Bake Yourself: Caramel Toffee Cheesecake

A little over a year ago, I was super excited to supply a Guest Post for CCU Uru of Go Bake Yourself, one of Australia’s premier bloggers. This week, when I remade this cheesecake, I updated with new photos and am reissuing this post so everyone can see it and maybe think about making it this Christmas! It is just so flippin’ good – make it, and you’re welcome!!! 🙂

Almond Praline

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I’ve already decided on one of my desserts. And no, it’s not Almond Praline – this Almond Praline is just one component of one of the fanciest, showstoppers of a dessert I’ve made for a while. It make sense to go all out for a Holiday, especially when the dessert can be broken down into do ahead components and assembled last-minute.

Aunt Ginny’s English Toffee

Classic English Toffee - add almonds if you'd like. Leave off the chocolate if you want it plain. But why? :)

My Aunt Ginny was famous for her Toffee, a Christmas treat, and I remember “helping” her make it when she visited. Even as a kid I was always hanging out in the kitchen. And when it was something curious like the alchemy involved in candy making, it was magic for me. It still is. 🙂
