I believe I've mentioned Chili Cook-offs and Dessert contests on the blog before.:-) The Husband and I serve as judges at times. Most recently, however, we were not permitted to be judges because we were entered in the competition!

You have probably heard of this "delicacy" before. They are made from a 1# package of Oreo cookies, crumbled in the food processor, and one 8-ounce package of cream cheese, softened. After mixing these two ingredients together, chill the mixture for an hour or so. This will simplify the process of shaping into balls. Then, it will be a good idea to place them in the freezer for another hour or so. That will make it easier to coat them with the melted chocolate. Whatever kind of chocolate you find on the super market shelves is what you will have to use. While my package indicated it was "melting chocolate," it would have helped had it flowed onto the bon bons more easily. It almost became a sculpting process! Anyway, they are really tasty and just about melt in your mouth!
I was in a rush to take the picture of our table. It was almost time to begin serving, and I needed to be sure to be out of the way behind the table.:-)
|Trying to be festive.:-)|
Oh, yes. In the background is the crutch I have been using to hobble around.:-) I am happy to report that my ankle is recovering! I don't think there will be any complications with it, thankfully!
Are you ready for Halloween? Some of you have already had great parties! No parties on the calendar around here, though there are some "trimmings" I will share with you next.
Thank you for reading. I really enjoy your comments.
