Hello everyone! Guess what?
My friend James, over at Appetite For Distraction, asked me to do a guest review. I was quite honored and really delighted as that kind of thing is right up my alley. Talking about new music? Oh yes.
You can check out what I had to say about new Coldplay, Black Keys, and Foster The People among others in this post.
Check out Appetite For Distraction to keep up with new music and listen to James’ fantastic podcasts.
Okay, moving on from one good thing to another.
These Oreo Truffles, Chocolate Snowdrops or whatever you want to call them are sooooo good. Basically they are Oreo Cakeballs.
Since the coating sets up hard, these are just the thing to fill a treat bag with for your favorite friends.
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 pkg (approximately 16 oz) Oreo, or other cream filled chocolate sandwich cookies
1 lb 8 oz white candy melts or white chocolate, melted
Colored sugar or sprinkles, if desired
1. In a food processor, crush cookies and stir in softened cream cheese. Process until thoroughly mixed.
2. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls (I used a small ice cream scoop to do this) and place on a wax paper covered cookie sheet. Freeze for 30 minutes.
3. Melt chocolate as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry. If using colored sugar to decorate, sprinkle it on while the chocolate is still wet.
Makes about 36 truffles.

I had never heard of the band Young The Giant prior to receiving the song Cough Syrup from James.
Cough Syrup. I LOVE that song title.
“Lifeʼs too short to even care at all”.
Check out Young The Giant and buy their music on the band’s Website. 2012 Tour Dates are also listed there. Tickets are selling out fast.
I had to laugh when James pointed out this song to me, especially given that I noticed how much ‘Whoa oh oh’ was going on in the collection of songs I reviewed.
