Here are three variations on the recipe (including dark/white/milk chocolate, gluten-free, and vegan versions) to please everyone on your list. (Send these gifts long distances, or give them out as favors to tell people you’re thinking about them this holiday season.) And for packaging? I keep it simple with glassine bags or Ball jars, little bits of natural twine, and always small touches of nature, such as berries, seeded eucalyptus stems, or a sprig of rosemary or pine.

Oreo Truffles Two Ways. Share on Pinterest I originally shared these 3 years ago but they are one of my favorite treats especially around Christmas time so I decided to update things and share it again – in case you’ve missed out. If you haven’t tried them yet then yes you are totally missing out! They only require a few basic ingredients (only 3 if you are making the original version and 5 for the peppermint!) And they are so incredibly easy to make! I’ve shared step-by-step photos below so you can see just how easy they are to make. If you don’t have a food processor you can crush the Oreos to crumbs in a gallon size resealable bag with a rolling pin. These are one of the treats I’m making this year to give to friends because I don’t have a lot of time to make something too detailed, plus these are always a win anywhere I take them.

If you’ve never made truffles before or dipped candies in chocolate this is a great place to start! Share on Pinterest Share on Pinterest Share on Pinterest Share on Pinterest Notes. Chocolate Gingerbread Truffles - Savory Style. Peanut Butter Chai Cookies {The Leftovers Club} A few months back, I was hanging out on Twitter when I saw someone post a recipe link for Chai Peanut Butter. Chai Peanut Butter?!? Needless to say, I was super excited to click on the link and then within almost the same instant completely and utterly let down...

It was CHIA Peanut Butter! The person who tweeted out the recipe spelled chia wrong. Yep. I have pretty much been obsessed with using that flavor combination in a recipe ever since. ;) When I received my pairing for this month's The Leftovers Club and she stated in her email that she loved peanut butter and cinnamon, I knew it was time to make my Peanut Butter Chai dream a reality...

So it seems that the chocolate chunk cookies I made the other day have disappeared. With two days until the kids spring break starts, {insert happy dance here} I found myself in need of a lunch box treat. {silly me I thought the cookies would last through the week} While chocolate chip are hands down the favorite cookie in the house, madeleines come a close second, and yet I rarely ever make them. I’m not sure why because they are so easy. With a full schedule and a lingering migraine, I still was able to get a batch finished before afternoon pickup.

The Sweet Chick: Chewy Dark Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies. Today it's a beautiful, sunny day with a temperature of 80ºF. Not the kind of weather I think about when we are only a few weeks away from Christmas. Nonetheless, I am trying to put myself in the mood by making some gingerbread cookies. Last year, I made some Chocolate Ginger Cookies that were the bomb, so this recipe is based off of those.

I only had Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa in the pantry, and I wanted to incorporate the Gingerbread M&M's I had found. If you haven't found these M&Ms yet, check Walmart or Target. Instead of using crystallized ginger chips in these cookies, I used fresh ginger. The spices smell so good all together. The freshly grated ginger gives the cookies a little extra punch. If it didn't have a raw egg in it, I would have eaten the whole bowl of cookie dough before it got to the oven.

Instead, I was good and rolled them up into little balls and coated them in sugar, before placing them on a cookie sheet. The dark chocolate was a good addition to these. Gingerbread Cheesecake.

Coconut Milk Hot Chocolate + Wool and Whiskey Scarf Giveaway. Nov 09 I have a small confession to make: Hot Chocolate is one of my weaknesses.

They are loaded with gingery goodness which is deliciously complimented by all the other spices and the molasses just give them such a tremendous depth of flavor that you just don’t find in nearly any other cookie.
