This is why I love Utah! We have this great hill just a few blocks away (one block if you cut through). The kids love it. Tomorrow will be another great sledding day. We're getting more snow right now. That's why I'm blogging and just did three new posts. So, sorry they're kind of random.

Christmas Cards

After "upteen" million hours of embossing, cutting, and gluing my Christmas cards are in the mail!

Oreo Truffles

Easy Oreo Truffles Recipe (yummy and easy - the picture doesn't do them justice)

45 Oreo cookies, divided (1 package)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 (8 ounce) packages semisweet baking chocolate, melted
Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in a food processor; reserve for later use. (This can also be done in a resealable bag with a rolling pin.).
Crush the remaining 36 cookies to fine crumbs and place in a medium bowl.
Add the cream cheese and mix until well blended.
Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1" in diameter.
Dip the balls in the melted chocolate and place them on a wax paper covered baking sheet. (Any left over chocolate can be stored at room temperature for another use.).
Sprinkle the tops of the truffles with the reserved cookie crumbs.
Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
Store leftover truffles, covered, in the refrigerator.
