But this year…
I made cake balls and Oreo truffles again. This year, instead of a boxed chocolate cake mix, I used my double-top-secret recipe for red velvet cake (ok, fine, it’s Paula Deen’s recipe – but use 3 eggs, not 2 - it is A-MAY-ZING) and homemade cream cheese frosting for the cake balls. Soooooo delectable!! So mind-blowingly yummy that it was an major exercise in self-control and selflessness to pack them into tins to give as gifts. I wanted to eat all 91 of them myself. (I only ate 67.)
I decorated them the same way so there’s nothing new to see.
I decided the Oreo truffles needed a touch of zig, a bit of zag.
I am so pleased with how these turned out I can hardly stand myself.
It took a whole weekend and every implement in my kitchen - not to mention splatter-painting the whole kitchen with almond bark - to achieve this glory…but it was so worth it.
I am ridiculously proud of this small accomplishment.
And I won't make them again for another 11.5 months.
