|Yummy Peanut Butter Oreo Truffle!|
Sunday, August 12, 2012
This past weekend was the Boyfriend's sister in law and good family friend's birthday celebration. Their birthdays are 1 day apart, and they share a bunch of mutual friends (ha - and probably family members), so it really only makes sense to have a joint birthday party!
The birthday party was super fun, had a great time, and met a couple more of my Boyfriend's Southern MN friends. Got to catch up with the Boyfriend's family, and play Corn Hole. Which I ABSOLUTELY love. I love lawn games. I think there might have been some miss calculation of the score, so if you are playing, I definitely recommend having a score board of some sort. Here is a site I found on how to make a few different score boards, and with drink holders no less!
Growing up, as a family, we rarely showed up with out anything to share. I sent a text to the Boyfriend's sister in law, and she said bring a yummy dessert. AWESOME! I have been waiting for a reason to make Oreo Truffles. I know they are extremely unhealthy, and make a ton of servings, so it would be best for me to have a reason to bring them somewhere before making them. So that is exactly what I did!
I couldn't decide what flavor of Oreo to use. But it was a Birthday Party! So I made two different batches. One batch was made with Birthday Cake Oreo Cookies, and the other was with Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies. How AWESOME!
Basically you take a package of cookies, crush them into a fine powder, and mix in 8 oz. of cream cheese, form them into balls.
Dip each ball into melted chocolate (I used Bakers White Chocolate), sprinkle something to make them prettier on top, and DEVOUR! Wait, I mean package up so others can enjoy!
I put sprinkles on the Birthday Cake Oreo Truffles, and mini semi sweet chocolate chips on the Peanut Butter Oreo Truffles, so that I could tell them apart from one another. They were so good! And were devoured pretty quickly at the party.
