Oreo Truffles with a Peppermint Twist

So I’ve been hearing so much buzz about how amazing Oreo truffles are – I thought I’d try them, but with a peppermint twist. Instead of using Oreos, I used Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Joe-Joe cookies. They are basically just like Oreos, with a peppermint-cream filling.

Dawg Balls

Okay, so there’s a story behind the name of these cookies. I got this wonderfully delicious cookie recipe from the lovely, talented, and resourceful friend Hayley because I was looking for a festive cookie to take to a tailgating party before a Georgia Bulldogs football game. (Go Dawgs!) My hubby saw me making these the morning of the party, and when he saw me rolling the chocolate balls of dough in red sprinkles, he said, “What are you making?!? Dawg balls?!?” And I said, “Yes!”

And that is how this cookie’s name came to be.

My Father-In-Law’s Favorite Cookies


My father in law has one weakness: coconut macaroons! Since he was going to be at our Christmas gathering, I wanted to make him his favorite treat.

I’ve tested a lot of different macaroon recipes – the ones that use condensed milk seemed promising, but ended up too dry. The ones based on egg whites sounded okay, and they ended up being PERFECT.

Melt-in-your-Mouth Goodness!

Here are my Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies!

This is a great old-fashioned recipe for melt-in-your-mouth cookies that cook on the stove and then set up on wax paper. There is nothing in the world like enjoying one of these tender, chewy, chocolatey gobs of goodness fresh off the wax paper, when they are still just a tiny bit warm. This is an easy recipe to make, even for beginners – but people are always wowed by the deliciously addictive taste of these cookies!
