Welcome Home!!

Last week my dear friend K.C. John came home from his mission in Brazil!! I was so excited to see him! I have missed this crazy fella a ton. He gave his Homecoming talk today and he did an exceptional job. He was an incredible missionary and I know he worked hard and brought many people to the gospel. He is wonderful and I'm so glad to have him back!

Anyways, I decided that I am terrible at updating my blog. Yes, things have been crazy this summer, but that isn't really an excuse to go several weeks without blogging because I am still baking up a storm! Last night I made Oreo Balls/Truffles with a friend of mine. Anyone heard of those? I actually thought they were a very common, well-known treat, but apparently not! We made these last night because my friend had never had one and I was shocked! My fabulous roommate Annie used to make these for us all the time and they wouldn't last long. :) But in an apartment of 6 college girls what can you expect? ha ha

I forgot to take a picture of our Oreo Balls/Truffles last night, but I'll give you the recipe and a site to go to to get a super good picture of them! I'm so sorry, I'll try hard to be much better about blogging about all of the yummy things I make, and taking pictures of them too. Forgive me? No? Well, have an Oreo Ball and maybe you'll change your mind... :)

Oreo Balls/Truffles

1 Package Oreos, crushed
1 block Cream Cheese
1 package Chocolate Chips (white, milk, or semisweet)

Combine crushed Oreos and cream cheese. Form into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Refrigerate the Oreo Balls until firm- about 30 minutes- If you're impatient like me, stick them in the freezer ;)Dip Oreo Balls in chocolate until they are completely covered, place back on the cookie sheet, and refrigerate until the chocolate is set. Enjoy!

  1. How great that you have your friend close again and that he served his mission so well. Have an awesome time catching up!

    I have made those Oreo truffles quite a few times and no one can ever believe they are so easy to make. I've never had leftovers to take home.
