Another full and busy day followed by a delightful evening at Kristina's for a Pampered Chef party.
We made 2 chocolate desserts, excellent for sharing during the holidays:
Rocky Road Brownies and
Creme de Menthe Cookie Truffles
15 Oreo cookies
2-3oz softened cream cheese
1 package Andes mint candies (unwrapped about 28 total)
1/4 cup white or semi-sweet chocolate chips
Put cookies in food processor and pulse till you get very fine crumbs. Add cream cheese and process till dough forms. Using a small cookie scoop, form into small balls. Place on a pan lined with parchment paper.
Microwave the Andes candies, stirring every 15-30 seconds until melted. Cool slightly. Dip truffles in chocolate; place onto pan. Let stand 5 minutes or until the chocolate is set.
Microwave chocolate chips on HIGH 30-60 seconds until melted. Drizzle chocolate over truffles. Let stand 10 minutes or until chocolate is set. Store truffles in an airtight container in the fridge.
