I made these for a Valentine Party the kids are going to tomorrow. Late for a Valentines party yes, but we had to reschedule because we had 2 blizzards in one week! No Joke. I have made Oreo truffles before however never in the shape of a kiss. I didn't think it would be that hard just a little pinch at the tip and your good to go. The shaping part was a cinch however, the dipping in chocolate was a disaster for me. I started dipping them and it was very awkward to get the bottom of the kiss coated so I started wiping them on the back of the spoon, yuck! Chocolate Everywhere! Then my chocolate was thickening up so I heated up again and then it was lumpy, so I added milk. MISTAKE!! It totally changed the consistency of the chocolate and it became more like frosting. I had to dump that batch of chocolate and start again. They are done, they look OK. I didn't have enough chocolate in the end to do the whole batch. I guess I inherited my mothers baking gene or lack there of. I am sure the kids are not going to care that they are not picture perfect, but I will know better next time.
I am a Twenty something Stay @ Home Mom in the state of Kentucky. I am a originally from FL. I am the blushing bride of a bold preacher of the word of God. My hubby and I have been married since 2004 and the Lord has grown our love for one another and our friendship everyday. He is my Best Friend! I am also the proud parent of the 3 cutest kiddos in the world!
GJ - My little Girl has my husbands inquisitive nature and my...everything else. She is so creative and silly. I enjoy just watching her play, to see the funny things she comes up with.
JA - my big boy has given me so much appreciation for how fun little boys are! They are missing a filter. The filter that says, "this might hurt", or "I shouldn't do that".
PM - My baby number 3 who is so sweet and I am cherishing every minute of him being a baby! His smile can light up a room, not to mention his hair!
My husbands drives me to know and love my Lord Jesus Christ more, and my kids reveal the love the Father has for me everyday.
