Last week was my family reunion in Utah, and I had such a great time. One of the things that helps to make the few days together a real treat, is all of the fabulous food! Bringing everyone’s culinary skills together to create yummy breakfasts, lunches, dinners and desserts, is so fun – especially since I have a love affair with food! One evening for dessert, we had these delectable Oreo Truffles. These chewy rich little chocolate balls are so good, and because they are rich, you really don’t feel like you need to eat a lot of them. I was always under the impression that truffles are hard to make, but these are so simple! I could have handled a couple more I’m sure, but was happy to share.
