It’s a SNOW DAY!
The snow is quietly falling.
Isn’t it so pretty?
I closed the shop today and am working from home, and I tell ya, it feels good. I ate a few GF Banana Oat Muffins for breakfast with some peppermint tea, have bean chili in the crockpot for later and am realllllly getting into going slow today!
Winter is a time to slow down, to go inward. It’s such a yin time of year and we all need days like these to recharge and nourish not only our bodies but our souls.
Speaking of nourishing your soul, have you ever tried our Vegan Oreo Cookie Truffles yet? If not, you MUST make them!
I have been looking for a vegan AND gluten-free recipe and haven’t quite figured that out yet (if you have one and it doesn’t involve soy or tons of ingredients, share below!).
BUT this recipe is tight!
In fact, Rosemary, our fabulous RASA vegan + gf culinary goddess whipped these up for our Galentine’s Gathering at the shop and EVERYONE wanted more and more! We might make this a staple recipe since it’s such a hit!
Soft, chewy, with a chocolately filling, just like an Oreo cookie. YUM!
Wanna make these yummo babies? Let’s do it!
They are perfect “sitting at home watching the snow fall” treat!
Vegan Oreo Cookie Chocolate Truffles
One package vegan Oreos ( Newman O’s or Trader Joe’s brands)
One 8oz vegan cream cheese (Miyokos is a soy-free brand as well. We use Trader Joe’s if we are in a hurry!)
One bag dark chocolate chips (Enjoy Life brand is yummy!)
Toppings: non-toxic sprinkles, nuts, cocao powder- Go wild!
In food processor, grind up the cookies until you get a sand-like consistency. Add cream cheese and blend until the dough forms. By using your hands (or a small icecream scooper), form the dough into balls. Freeze the balls for 1-2 hours.
In a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips. Take truffles out of freezer and with two forks place into chocolate and take out to set up. When all done put them in the fridge for 2 hours. That way they will firm up and be ready to eat in no time!
Eat up! Makes approximately 3 dozen.
Let me know if you made these truffle delights and share your favorite chocolate-y treat with me below! There can never be enough chocolate!
