Are you all ready for Christmas?
I'm not...haven't even started yet! WHAT??? I know, I know.
Haven't even gotten the tree decorated yet! It is up~ and has lights, but that is as far as we've gotten.
I am trying really hard to not be stressed out about all the "stuff". And just taking things one day at a time.
Hopefully all the Merry Decor will be festively flung this weekend.
Last night, we had our neighborhood Cookie Exchange. Thanks to my brave neighbor, Heidi~ who hosts this every year.
Since I have lots of chocolate left-overs from the wedding, I decided to make something that would use some of that: Oreo Truffles.
I use Bakerella's recipe. You can find it here: Bakerella's Oreo Truffles
They turned out pretty well. They were ugly (I'm still working on my rolling and dipping technique) but they were good! Everyone was impressed. I was less than happy with the chocolate, though. It has good flavor~ but wasn't quite the same as the molding/dipping chocolate I usually use. It didn't set up very quickly, and it has a thinner consistency than the other stuff. And I still have a whole lot of chocolate left. Maybe I'll melt it down and pour it into my candy molds~ then it will be easier to eat!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful December.
Merry Christmas from our family to yours.
