First Snow of the Season =) **recipe**

The starts to the Holiday season was met with a cold snow! =-) 

Thanksgiving morning!

We went to Mom's for Thanksgiving.
Q and I were off Friday so we hung out, cleaned and crocheted.

Bobert was in town from Kansas City so I made him, per his request, Oreo Truffles 
They DO NOT look like the Kraft ones...they lie... 
Also: The recipe says to mix the cookie and cream cheese then dip in chocolate.
NO- LET THEM CHILL FIRST before attempting to dip them or they will fall apart. 
I let them chill first. Next time I might use more cream cheese so they are creamier.

 OREO Cookies, finely crushed, divided
pkg.  (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
pkg.  (4 oz. each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, broken into pieces, melted

make it

RESERVE 1/4 cup cookie crumbs. Mix cream cheese and remaining cookie crumbs until blended.  ***I didn't do this***
SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Dip in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.

kraft kitchens tips

Place chocolate in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 2-1/2 min. or until chocolate is completely melted, stirring every 30 sec.
To easily coat truffles with the melted chocolate, add truffles, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll truffles in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove truffles with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place truffles on prepared baking sheet; let stand until firm.
Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

This is what happens when you drink 36oz of water in 2 minutes....

There is a hysterical video that goes with this but I will spare someome the embarrassment....

Saturday morning we cleaned out the bed sheets that someone has chewed holes in
I will attempt to crochet a rug from the least the colors match...

Then when Bob was here we ate and watched the OSU vs. _ichigan ga_e. 

 After that we all got to decorating!!!
It was a fun evening with the three of us and Christmas music!

I hope everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving!!!!
