Mindy posted about To Die For Oreo Truffles last year sometime and we've made then several times since. My friend Christalee mentioned that sometimes she puts mint extract in hers, and I got the idea to make a few different flavors as a treat for some visitors.But first... some of my kids found my old label maker. Anybody else have one of these from way back when? I couldn't believe it... my Christmas present from 6th grade. Oh, how I loved that thing! I don't think you can even buy the tape for it any more.
Our summer reading program had the most awesome end-of-the-program cake! The "jewels" are broken up life savers. Great Job, Lacey!
The maker said that at the last minute, the poor dragon fell apart and they lost a whole top tier. But you'd never know it, righ?
Every year the end of the program is the "reptile man". I find him VERY entertaining. Not so much for the snakes and lizards and tortoises, but for his great delivery. The guy should have been a stand up comedian!
So, my dad likes to go to Coscto. Anybody else go to Costco? I've been twice before in my life and I just remember it had EVERYTHING. And it was huge. Anyway, he likes to go and buy treats for my kids. (Some day I'll put in an order for avocados and fresh raspberries, lol.) This is what he brought back from this trip. An enormous box of Oreos. The kids were thrilled.
We decided to make different flavors this time. But then how would we tell them apart?
We dipped the plain in white chocolate for a "cookies and cream". The raspberry we dipped in dark chocolate and white chocolate. The orange we dipped in milk chocolate. The mint we dipped in both dark and milk chocolate. The sprinkles and so the visitors and the kids could pick their favorite flavor.
Until next time, my friends!
