Oreo Truffles

The kiddos and I made candy today. The recipe was easy for them and came out pretty tasty.

1 8-oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
1 pkg Oreos
2 pkg semisweet baking chocolate

Take out nine Oreos and crush the rest into very fine crumbs (for which I recommend a Ziploc bag and a rolling pin). Mix them into the cream cheese. (A good pastry blender is very handy for this step.) Melt the baking chocolate, roll the mixture into balls, and cover them in the chocolate. Crush the remaining Oreos and sprinkle them on top. Put the candies on a baking sheet and refrigerate them until the chocolate is set.

Easy, yes? Kids love to make treats, too. :-)

  1. Edit of a short story (up to 5,000 words) by Michelle Ellis of Wild Child. This one will be tricky to figure out what to do. If I give a short story (or start of something longer) in horror, “dread”, or erotica categories, I’ll also have consideration for publication.

    Now I have to think about whether I
    * Ask for an edit on a short story outside of those areas (and intended for submission elsewhere)
    *Ask for an edit of the first 5K words of Mysterious Paris (not in those categories)
    * Complete a short story WIP that might work for the “dread” category
    * Ask how long this offer holds and change my nanowrimo plans (to write one of the romance/eroticas I’ve outlined).

    I entered the raffle for all possible edits, and was originally planning to do one of those first possibilities. But perhaps it would be better to do one of the latter, with the stronger possiblity of a fiction credit.
