I didn't really want any big deal of a gift... I just asked for a small carry-pack to fit on my bike. I always forget to bring Advil or my Dr. Haushka's Lip Care Stick or something else I deem to be essential when we go out on a ride. I'm better off just leaving it in the carry-pack on my bike so that way I'll have it with me :) Oh and speaking of my bike, yes indeed I did register for the Los Angeles Marathon Acura Bike Tour - - - yay!!! DJ is registered as well - awesome! We'll be starting off right around 6am on Sunday March 2nd.... think of me as you're snuggled in your jammies, send up some prayers, good vibes, positive thoughts or whatever you believe it cuz I could use all the support I can get! LOL.
1 full package of Oreo cookies
1 80z package of softened cream cheese
12oz dipping chocolate
(I use Chocolate Bark thinned with 1/2 tsp Crisco)
Crush up the cookies using a food processor, Magic Bullet, rolling pin, etc. Combine with the cream cheese and make sure it's mixed really well. Using your hands, roll into approx 36 1" balls. Melt the chocolate (I like the Bark because it melts easily in the microwave and stays pliable for quite a while) and roll each ball in the melted chocolate until fully coated. Place each coated ball on waxed paper until fully set.
Nutter Butter Truffles
Same as Oreo Truffles except use a full package of Nutter Butter cookies... everything else, including the directions, are the same :)
