Okay, so I know that nobody is reading right now. That's cool. You all have lives which are more interesting than mine and you probably have places to be and turkey to cook and all that good stuff. That's cool.
I've been baking.
Since I've also religiously followed Weight Watchers and TOTALLY DIDN'T EVEN BLOW IT on Thanksgiving Day (go me!), I am also packaging all this stuff up to send to places near and far and give to people who can stand to gain some weight. Because I sure can't.
Anyway. I made the easiest truffles EVAH. And here's how I did it.
1 8oz package of cream cheese
1 Package of Bakers semi-sweet chocolate
1 cup Milk Chocolate chips
Melt 8 chocolate squares as directed on package (basically, I melted mine for 30 second intervals in the microwave). Beat cream cheese with mixer until creamy (you might want to let it sit out of the fridge before you start beating it. Trust me on this one). Blend chocolate and cream cheese together. Cover with plastic wrap and refridgerate until firm.
(I left mine in the fridge about three hours)
Shape mixture in 36 balls.
Heh. I said "balls".
Anyway. Place the balls on a waxed paper covered baking sheet and refridgerate for 1 hour.
(Or you can put them in the freezer for about 20 minutes, like I did)
Melt milk chocolate chips. Use a fork to dip the balls (heh) in the milk chocolate. Generously sprinkle powered sugar on a plate and roll covered balls (BWAH!) in powered sugar.
And there you go.
And okay. They aren't beautiful. I'm not The Pioneer Woman. So sue me.
I also made chocolate peanut-butter fudge. When I remember what I put in it, I might post that as well.
