Sweet!

I have a confession to make....

...I suck at cooking. Dave does almost all the cooking at home. I only make suggestions about what I like and what I'm in the mood for. So pretty much I make the decisions but Dave does all the cooking. It is a perfect world.

But, I do kinda like to bake. For Dave's birthday a few months ago I actually found a recipe online and found a new dessert to surprise him with. And you know what?

IT WAS A HIT!!!!

So, here's the recipe:

Oreo Truffles

1 package of Oreo cookies (I used reduced fat)
1 package of cream cheese (Again, reduced fat)
1 package of white chocolate bark

Take 7 Oreos and crush them (I used my blender). Put those in a container and put them aside. You'll use those later. Take the rest of the Oreos and crush them. Then mix them with the cream cheese. Make sure that cream cheese is super-soft. I used my hand mixer. Then take that mixture and make one inch balls with it. Put the white bark into a double-boiler (fancy-talk for one pot floating inside of another pot of boiling water) and melt. Dip those balls in the melted bark and cover completely. Finally sprinkle all the Oreo balls with the 7 Oreos you crushed at the beginning. Put them in the fridge and serve cold. They are SOOOO yummy.

You can thank me later. :)

Meredith - My name is Caroline and I found your blog through the Goody StayPut racing team, so I suppose I've been reading it for about a year. I also run, did Boston for the first time last year and am doing it again this year, so I really enjoy reading your blog because I identify with alot of the things you write about. But, to the important part - that recipe you put up - TO DIE FOR. My mother has that recipe in her arsenal and gave it to me a few years ago so now whenever I go to any sort of potluck, I bring that. It's so easy and delicious, I'm surprised that more people haven't caught on to it - you are only the second person I know to mention it. Anyways, happy running and good luck on your next race!
