After the 364 day wait, it’s finally here: CHRISTMAS!!!

And Christmas is in my opinion the best day for food.

Sure, some may say, “Um, don’t you mean Thanksgiving?” but I say no, I mean Christmas, because we are not restricted to having meat as the main dish and a French Canadian-Italian can eat whatever pleases her!

Although, somehow this year I was only in charge of dessert, so we did have turkey (with a side of lasagna, though).

But, being in my happy lazy Christmas mode, I just selected dessert, I didn’t actually cook anything

BUT I’ve made these before.

(keep in mind that I don’t measure things…)

Dirt Truffles

about 3/4 of the box of plain Oreos (or similar store brand kind of cookies)

1 package of cream cheese

chocolate chips (your choice in semi sweet, dark, or milk)


Directions: Put the oreos in the food processor and process well.  Pour the crushed up oreos into a bowl with the cream cheese and stir (by hand is the easiest way)

Stir with hands

The way to mix it

Once thoroughly mixed, roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Allow to cool in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, although if you’re really freakishly impatient and amazing at chocolate coating, you can go straight on to the next step.  Melt the chocolate chips in a bowl, and roll each dirt ball (dirt like the dessert that has oreo cookie crumbs and chocolate pudding) in the chocolate until completely coated, then place back on the parchment lined cookie sheet.  Refrigerate for approximately an hour at least, or however long it takes for the chocolate to harden.  If you want to be fancy, drizzle white chocolate on it! But I’m much more direct, and there usually isn’t much time for something like that especially on Christmas
