Oreo. Truffle. Balls.

Tis the Season! I'm not sure about you, but for me that means excess eating binges, holiday music, drinking hot totties and family! This year my mom held a cookie exchange with about 16 women and we had to bring 13 dozen... yes, you read that correctly.... 13 DOZEN cookies! I decided this year to make Oreo truffle balls, a fabulous recipe I learned from my husbands family. Just try not to eat them all! :)

                                                                        You will need:

Place all oreos in a ziplock bag and crush with a hammer. You can also use a slap chop. Dump this into a large bowl and fold in cream cheese by hand. You should have a big cookie blob like this one... 

Proceed to take pieces off the cookie blob and roll into 1" balls. Then place on wax paper lined cookie sheet. These must go in the refrigerator for a couple hours to set. 

Once the balls have chilled, melt the white chocolate over double boiler. (I also added a bag of Wiltons chocolate melts which made it SOOO much easier to cover the balls! I highly suggest!) 

Cover the balls in chocolate and place back on wax paper. Once they are all covered put back in the fridge to harden. I then used Wilton's red and green chocolate, put in plastic bag, and swirled over the top for some extra holiday cheer! 

Hope you enjoy these little treats as much as my family and I do! 
Merry Christmas!!

Sorry I neglected you Blog...

well.... my life finally caught up to me and with the Holidays here I have TOTALLY neglected my little blog. Sorry! Maybe it will be my new years resolution to try and write on here more often! (better than the weight loss thing right?) Speaking of that... I never finished telling you about my 30 day cleanse!

Paleo lifestyle has TOTALLY changed me... for the better! I am down to 144.5 as of today and my goal is now to reach 140. For those of you that are following.. thats about 13lbs! 4.5 more to go! I am on month 5 of eating this way and feel like I have a whole new outlook on food.

So, what's new you ask? I started spending time on my photography page and had so much interest that it has become a bit of a side job! I am loving every second of it! Here is the link if you want to check it out...

Here are a couple of my favorites from the past month...

I have more people signed up for January and I can't wait to share!
