Another baking day and holiday recital day at the house. Of course, no writing today, but oh, the fun of making Oreo Truffles with my DD. The recipe is super easy. I wish I could take credit for it, but one of my writing friends at the Writing Playground shared this last year on their blog, and I couldn’t resist making it.

Now Oreo Truffles are a total staple.
I’m sharing the recipe because it is yummy and it is very easy to make. Even a child could help make these delightful treats. My DD makes them and gives them away to her friends at their request. Here’s the recipe:
1 Package of Oreo Cookies
1 8 oz block of philadelphia cream cheese (I use 1/3 less fat)
white, dark or milk chocolate (white chocolate hardens the fastest)
Grind the package of Oreo Cookies (3 sleeves) in food processor till it is super powdery. Pour into a bowl, add one block of cream cheese and mix by hand. Roll into small balls and put onto a cookie sheets covered in wax paper. Freeze for 30 minutes. Melt chocolate (dark, white or milk) and dip each frozen ball into it. Put onto wax paper lined cookie sheet, put in fridge and harden (can do overnight).
Voila! Total Yumminess!!
Now The Writing Playground is special to me because it is comprised of members of the Heart of Dixie. Two of the writers are published and all the rest are PRO. One of them is even a Golden Heart finalist. Check out their blog site. But don’t stop there. Check out their web page.
The Writing Playground has tons of great recipes for successful writing, too! One of my favorites is not on the website (or at least wasn’t last time I checked). Kira Sinclair gave a CRAFT CORNER at one of our meeting about how to put together a simple and effective synopsis. Bar none, this is my go to lesson for all my synopsis work. In addition to that, they’ve lead author discussions and prepared my chapter for pitching at the National Seminar.
This holiday season is about sharing, but when we belong to writing chapters where we are treated to all the knowledge they have to offer us. I appreciate all the RWA and the writing chapters offer us. I hope that if you are writing, you have found the support network you need to stay in the game.
Happy Holidays and Enjoy the OREO TRUFFLES!
