HALLOWEEN OREO TRUFFLES : Owl Truffles

Ingredients
  • 1 package (16 ounces) regular Oreos
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) milk chocolate chips
  • 1 large box miniature Oreos
  • 36-40 blue M&Ms
  • 18-20 orange M&Ms
Instructions
  1. Pulse the full oreos (no need to separate cream from cookie) in a food processor or blender until it is in crumbs.
  2. Using a hand held mixer, beat the Oreos and cream cheese together until well combined.
  3. Roll the mixture into balls.
  4. Chill the balls, covered tightly, for an hour in the fridge.
  5. Once the balls are chilled, melt the white chocolate in the microwave in bursts of 15 seconds, stirring in between each burst until melted. (This is technically another ingredient, but you may need a teaspoon (or a few) of vegetable oil to get the chocolate thin enough to dip in. Every chocolate is a little different so if needed, I’ll just add the oil slowly until it coats the oreo truffles well.)
  6. Place a ball on a fork and then spoon the melted chocolate evenly over the ball. Tap the fork holding the ball to remove excess chocolate.
  7. Slide the ball carefully onto parchment paper and allow to dry.
  8. Once dry, re-melt the remaining white chocolate and pour into a small plastic bag.
  9. Cut off the tip of the bag and pipe stripes around the oreo ball to resemble a mummy. Press 2 edible eyes onto the stripes and then pipe a little on the top of the eyes to make it look more like a mummy. (See video tutorial),
  10. Allow to dry.

12 Cute Christmas Breakfast Ideas for Kids

Day 12 – Snowman Pancakes

Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without a darling snowman or two! To make the snowman’s body, simply make one pancake larger than the other. Make eyes and buttons with fresh blueberries, a scarf from a sliced strawberry, a mouth with mini chocolate chips or dots of melted chocolate and a nose with an orange segment. Christmas trees can be made using sliced kiwi and shredded coconut works great for snow. For the final touch, a bit of melted chocolate creates the snowman’s arms and tree trunks.

Day 11 – Penguin Oatmeal

Every child seems to love adorable penguins so today is a great day to make penguin oatmeal! Make your favorite flavor of oatmeal (try to make it a little more on the thicker side). Allow the oatmeal to cool just a bit before placing some into the center of a plate (the use of blue dinnerware really helps the presentation). Surround the oatmeal with fresh blueberries, adding extra on the side for penguin wings. Garnish with orange slices for a mouth and feet and a hat made from a strawberry and mini marshmallows (also used for snow).

  7. Before it dries, sprinkle the top of the ball with brown sprinkles and then press two candy eyes onto each ball.
  8. Cut the licorice with scissors and press into the cookie ball. Do this before the chocolate has a chance to harden. It’s helpful to insert two legs (one on each side) at a time to get leverage to press the legs fully in.
