Morning Everyone
No sun up here today so it is a day of cleaning. Going to clean out my workshop and may do some organizing in there. Need a place to put the wrapped gifts til Christmas. Since December is a slow month for me it will be a good place to put them all...So this week we are going to do some baking and putting in containers for ourselves as well for gift giving...Everyone likes a gift a Christmas and especially if it is homemade...
Monday---- Oreo Truffles
Tuesday----Grammas Sausage Rolls
Wednesday----Peanut Clusters
Thursday----Gingerbread Cookies
Friday----Pumpkin Parfait


• 1 pkg. (8 squares) Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate
• 1 pkg. (6 squares) Baker's White Chocolate
• 2 Tbsp. Kraft Smooth Peanut Butter
• 10 Oreo Cookies

Place semi-sweet chocolate and white chocolate in separate medium microwaveable bowls. Microwave until completely melted, following directions on package.
Add peanut butter to white chocolate; stir until well blended.
Crumble half the cookies over chocolate in each bowl;
Mix well.
Drop spoonfuls of the chocolate mixtures onto waxed paper-covered baking sheet, alternating the colours of the chocolates
Swirl gently with knife.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Break into 14 pieces.
Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
If you are making as gifts you would probably want to double this recipe at least....

Now I have attached a couple of pictures of how to wrap these Oreo Truffles

You can put them all in one container in the freezer then when you are going to give them as a gift just put them some in individual containers . You can buy bags like the loot bags at the dollar store and they are especially for food. They have a coating on them that makes them like a waxed paper. Right now they have some great festive ones for the holidays....

  3. Rhonda and I have both asked her many times for her recipes...not much luck so far! lol Anyways, I just read through every one of your posts.

And for those of us who didn't get all those things, I think I've just found them. Thank you for this blessing.
