Starting a blog.
It’s walking into a party and realizing (again) that grade eight gym class never really ends. Radiating awkward from all angles, even though (on a good day) you’re nice enough. All these people, who seem to know what they are doing and do it well. What were you thinking? Why would you come here? It’s that.
It’s realizing that at some point, you just need to close your eyes and begin. You’ve failed and survived, and may well again.
I may well. I might have a party and no one will show up.
I’ve looked at maps and plans and suggestions and to those people who seem to know what they are doing and do it well. So much good information, but so paralyzing. It appears that I am likely going about this all the wrong way – and my pictures are lousy.
It doesn’t matter if the glass is half-full or half-empty- I figure I’ll spill it either way, but I’m walking into the party as if I belonged there (or at least pretending to).
And I’m bringing these Cookies & Cream Truffles.
- 1 cup / 250 ml chopped white chocolate
- 1 tablespoon / 15 ml butter
- ⅓ cup / 80 ml whipping cream
- 10 Oreo cookies, chopped fine
- ½ cup / 125 ml chocolate wafer crumbs
- Place white chocolate and butter in small mixing bowl.
- Heat whipping cream in microwave until it begins to bubble.
- Pour cream over white chocolate and butter and let sit for 3 minutes.
- Stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth.
- Stir Oreos into chocolate mixture.
- Let it set until firm. (This can take some time- up to 12 hours.)
- When mixture is firm, scoop up 2 teaspoons / 10 ml at a time and form into balls by rolling between hands.
- Roll the balls in the wafer crumbs and store in airtight container.
