Thursday- another 3 miles on the ol’ treadmill
It’s a good thing my treadmill has half of my heart. Seriously, I love it so much. I do get bored, but I usually try and have new music, watch a show, or do a crazy workout. I’m just so grateful I don’t have to go out in the storm.
I did, however, have to brave the storm to finish my Christmas shopping. I’m officially finished!(said in Toads voice at the end of Mario Kart) I also picked up my little sis cuz it was crazy out and my car has all wheel drive. It was so fun shopping with her and baby M.
I originally found the recipe on Pinterest, but my friend who is an expert on these desserts sent me her modifications and I loved the cream cheese in her recipe. Here it is:
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
12 oz chocolate coating, melted (you can also use vanilla coating, to dip or drizzle) ***see note below***
1.Beat cream cheese and butter until creamy. Add sugar and vanilla. Beat in flour and salt. Fold in chocolate morsels. Put mixture in the fridge until it hardens up. It will be too soft to mold right after it is mixed. I had mine in the fridge for maybe 30 minutes or so.
2.Remove cold and firm dough from the fridge, use hands to mold into nicely shaped balls. I made all of my balls and then put them on a cookie sheet and let them freeze in the freezer. Once balls are frozen, using a toothpick, dip into melted chocolate coating and return to parchment. Drizzle with melted vanilla bark. Refrigerate and enjoy.
Anyone else getting hit with snow?
How do you avoid ice when you run outside in the winter?
I’m not afraid of being cold, I just don’t wanna get injured on ice. . .
