More Quick and Easy Christmas Truffles - Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Oreo Cookie

December 18, 2011


Oreo Cookie Truffles
These are super quick to whip up!
adapted by a recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything

1 package Double Stuff Oreo Cookies
4 oz. cream cheese {not the low-fat version}, softened
6 squares of vanilla almond bark, or white candy melts

Blend the cookies in a food processor in 3 batches.  Reserve 3 T. cookie crumbs for sprinkling on the top later.  To the last batch of crushed cookies add the cream cheese and blend for a few seconds.  Add the previously crushed cookies back to the food processor and blend a few more seconds.  Your mixture should look sticky and clumpy like this:

*If you don't have a food processor, you can put them in a 1 gallon sealed food bag and crush with a rolling pin - messy but it works.  Put the crushed cookies in a bowl and stir in the cream cheese with a wooden spoon until incorporated.*

Roll the mixture into 1" balls {the mixture will seem crumbly at first, but as you roll it, it will ball up} and place on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet.  Once all are rolled, place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, or until firm.

Meanwhile, melt the almond bark in a bowl in the microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted.  Stir between each.

With a fork, dip the truffles into the melted almond bark and then place back on the waxed paper.  Top immediately with the reserved cookie crumbs - the coating sets up quickly.  Repeat with all truffles.

Store in the refrigerator until served.

Makes 30 truffles.




Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookie dough?  I remember waiting patiently to lick the mixer beaters or the spoon when I was a child.  I'm not sure if it was so good because I was the only one who was awarded the beaters or if I just loved the dough.  Regardless, we all know the concern with eating raw eggs in cookie dough.  This recipe removes that concern.
 
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough TrufflesAdapted from a recipe by Taste Of Home
Makes 55 - 60 truffles

1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. light brown sugar, packed
1 t. vanilla extract
2 c. all-purpose flour
1/8 t. salt
1 - 14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 c. miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 1/2 c. chocolate chips {can be semi-sweet or milk chocolate, or a mixture of both - I use 1-1/2 c.milk chocolate and 1c. semi sweet)
2 1/2 T. vegetable oil {canola is fine}

In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed.  Mix in the vanilla.  Add salt and the flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing well.  Mixture will be crumbly.  Add the sweetened condensed milk and mix until well combined.  Stir in the miniature chocolate chips.

Put mixture in the refrigerator for 1 hour, or until the dough is firm.

Roll dough into 1" balls and place on a waxed paper lined baking sheet.  Place the truffles back in the refrigerator while you prepare the coating.

Melt the chocolate chips and oil in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring until completely melted.  Remove the truffles from the refrigerator and, with a fork, dip each truffle into the chocolate mixture, letting excess drip off before placing back on the waxed paper.  Repeat with all truffles.

Refrigerate for 20 - 30 minutes, until firm.  Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

My Story: Building A Soap Business To Earn Six Figures In 3 Years

October 10, 2017


As promised, here's a little bit about the business we've created from the ground up.

When I started  Cobble Hill Farm Apothecaryin 2013, it was meant to be a "someday" retirement business. With all of the other soap & skincare companies out there, we honestly had no idea that it would even be a possibility of doing as well as it did so soon. But it has, and for that we are incredibly grateful. (I...

How To Fail At Homesteading.....

October 06, 2017


Ok, so the title is a tad bit dramatic.  But friends, it's simply reality.  I could teach a course on how-to fail at homesteading, particularly this year.

sigh......

Probably not a good thing since this is a homesteading blog. It seems that the attempt to keep all balls in the air whilst one also tries to also craft a homemade life is, um, not possible. At least not on this small homestead. And at...
