truffles and tortes

I am trying out two recently acquired recipes on Chris' family tomorrow for their annual holiday get together the Sunday before Christmas.  I love making new and fun appetizers and dips to bring to a party.  I will be honest that I have been craving the cranberry walnut torte concoction from Trader Joes. So when posed with the task to bring something different...I decided to see if I could make one myself.

I altered the recipe as the container I was using to make my torte was a 1 qt. souffle dish.

Here is my version:
8oz. package low fat cream cheese {softened}
5oz. crumbled Gorgonzola {room temperature}
Dried Cranberries
Walnut chips

I also used cling wrap in my dish instead of waxed paper. Check out the original recipe and directions here.

My next new treat are Oreo Truffles. The Beginning of Forever recently blogged about cake balls and how she calls them truffles.  Which is so perfect...really, I wish I would have thought of it. lol. This rather settled my issue with "cake balls" so I am proud to say they have a new name now....cake truffles!  I am so excited I found this Bakerella recipe.  

So back to the Oreo truffles.  After reading about the existence of these delectable delights I decided it was a perfect time to make them...

The recipe is super simple
1 package Oreo's divided
8 oz. cream cheese {softened}
White Chocolate Bark coating

Visit Bakerella for all the details.


  1. Those Oreo truffles look insanely delicious!

  2. Mmm... yes those truffles are good. My supervisor's wife makes them and they are SO delish!
