I have finally discovered Picnik.  I know, I have been under yet another rock.  This was a necessity in order to fix the hideous background color of my kids’ Christmas picture.  Long story.  But thankfully, our babysitter is much more savvy than I in this department and showed me how to make the alteration.  Now I have seen the light and am pretty excited to doll up my pictures for the blog.  I also have my digital camera back, which means suddenly, my pictures will (hopefully) look much better.

Now, to the business at hand.  Mint Oreo Truffles.  I was not going to make these this year, but they kept popping up everywhere.  I decided that the ingredients must actually go together better than it seems and gave them a spin.  I am glad I did.  They are really easy, crazy good, only have three ingredients and require zero baking.  Brilliant.

Mint Oreo Truffles (loosely based on AllRecipes version)

1 package               Mint Oreos

1 (8 oz) package  softened cream cheese

1 small bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

*Crush Oreos and mix with softened cream cheese.  Place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to chill.

*Roll cookie mixture into bite-sized balls and place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.  Place into the freezer for 20 minutes.

* Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 2 minutes (or until melted) and stir.  Remove cookies from freezer and dip into chocolate, placing them on a cooling rack to set.

**All of the chilling steps can probably be skipped, but I found that they made things very easy and I had to make these in steps anyway.**

These are dangerous, people.  Enjoy.

I am still planning on making those sugar cookies, but it will be a last-minute project due to our schedule this week.  Hope you are enjoying the season and thanks for stopping by!
