Project of the Week - Nutter Butter Truffles

I LOVE Oreo truffles! There are several variations of them and I wanted to test out another recipe last week. I tried the Nutter Butter truffles. They are made the same way as the Oreo ones (click here for directions), only with Nutter Butters. In my opinion, they aren't quite as good as the Oreo ones, but they're still pretty good. They taste like a peanut butter cup. This time I stuck a toothpick in them before I put them in the freezer. It made it so much easier to dip in and out of the chocolate almond bark. I decided to just leave the toothpicks in them so they were easy to pick up and eat. I also think these taste better from the fridge rather than room temp. Since Chad and I didn't need to eat the whole batch, I took them to school and shared them with the other teachers. If I had time, I'd do that at least once a week. I love making desserts and sharing them.

Too bad we aren't still roommates... but it's a good thing for obvious reasons! ;o) These look really yummy.

I was thinking the other day of when you attempted to make yourself a cup of coffee... do you drink it ever now? I've never heard anyone talk so fast or shake so much... good times! ;o)

I wish you guys were here to share them with me! Dara, I'm laughing so hard! I think about that all the time. I usually have 3 cups of coffee every morning. Some days when I'm really tired, I make it extra strong. You would have thought I would have learned by now...I still get the shakes pretty bad sometimes. HA!
