Welcome to Seven Days of Stocking Stuffers! Seven days where we talk about projects small enough to fit in a stocking and easy enough that you won’t pull your hair out in the process. Not into stockings? No worries, these projects would also be great for any occasion!
Well, it’s that time again! What time, you ask? Oreo Truffle time, of course, silly. If you’ve been with us for the last year, you’ll remember that these super easy truffles won last year’s T&T Trials for the perfect little food gift. Here we are a year later and they’re still ridiculously addictive.
This year we decided to change it up a bit and use mint Oreos with crushed candy cane sprinkled on top. It was a bit of a gamble messing with Bakerella’s recipe but it totally paid off in the end. The mint innards of the truffle mix perfectly with the hint of crunchy texture from the candy cane. If you could put Christmas on a stick, this is what it would taste like. (Wow, that sounded much better in my head. Now I can’t stop thinking about reindeer poop on a stick. Great.)
Speaking of sticks, last year we had a bit of an issue with some of the truffles being kinda messy so this year I decided to make it an all-out Bakerella Christmas and pop these suckers on sticks. Much much much easier to work with candy coating.
I’m planning on wrapping these individually and groups of five to give out as little “Thanks for the wonderful year” gifts. That is if I can convince my husband to stop stealing them!
