Just when I thought I had control over the television, or more date nights with my boyfriend, football eases it’s way back into my life. Don’t get me wrong, I like football, but I’m way more interested in the Food Network or horrible reality shows. In just a few short weeks, my living room is going to be taken over by hungry men wearing hideous over-sized football jerseys.
I try to make the best of the testosterone roaming around my house. Cooking and Party planning, now that is my kind of entertainment. I thought It would be smart to start testing out foods ahead of time. I couldn’t think of anyone better than my boyfriend Jeremy to be my guinea pig. So a couple nights ago, I baked him my first super bowl recipe, crispy Parmesan flax seed chicken drummies.
On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me…white chocolate Oreo balls with peppermint drizzle.
For the past three Christmases, I am begged by my family and friends to make Oreo balls. I’m sure you have heard of them before, and if not…well don’t try them unless you want a new addiction.
Even though they are unhealthy, they are a new Christmas tradition that I’ll continue to carry on. It’s perfectly fine to eat one, as long as the one isn’t followed by one more and one more…until there are no more.
There are a couple different ways to make them and different recipes out on the internet. Mine was originated from bakerella, but I’ve made some slightly different changes.
-After mint chocolate has melted, drizzle over the Oreo balls.
-Garnish with a slice of candy cane.
On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me…eleven pipers piping.
Seriously. Do you know how annoying a piper piping is? Add ten more! This is horrific. How am I supposed to enjoy my yoga session with eleven pipers piping non stop. I can’t take this anymore!
I’m going to bake a bunch of Oreo balls and shove them in their pipes! Hopefully they’ll get the point and pipe somewhere else.
My true love needs a serious reality check.
