I hope you are all having a fabulous Thursday so far. My week has been a bit bananas, hence the not posting. Sorry!
Mr. Delish and I are supposed to wrap up our Christmas shopping tonight (read: I had to bribe him with food court chinese food to get him to reluctantly agree to come)
EVERY gosh darn year, I get my Christmas shopping done SUPER early. Like beginning of December early. Considering I can be a horrible procrastinator, that is like a miracle.
A Christmas miracle, you could say.
Anyways, before I can even pat myself on the back for suppressing my inner procrastinator, I remember that Mr. Delish hasn’t even STARTED his shopping yet. And by started, I mean, hasn’t even thought for one second about who he needs to buy for or what he may get them.
The first couple years that I came across this issue, I would drag him to the mall, and be like “OK, what do you need to get?” and he would wander around aimlessly with no clue what he was going to buy or who he needed to buy for.
Luckily we’ve been together a long enough time (almost nine years, what??) that I am smart to his ways. Now I always make sure to get him locked in on his gift ideas, well before time. Then all I have to do is bribe and weasel my way into bringing him to the mall and picking up the items.
It’s easy…ier than before.
Okay, onto the food.
This is that third truffle recipe, you know the one that I was supposed to post a week ago?
These are SUPER EASY (hence the name) and incredibly yummy for how simple they are. My mom has been making these every Christmas since, before I was born I think?
I love them and Christmas wouldn’t be the same without everyone eating these all before Christmas even happens. Then my Mom yells and swears that she won’t be make another batch…”those will be the end of them!” Then she promptly makes another batch.
I love my Mom.
Miss Delish asks:
What kind of shopper are you? Do you like to get your shopping done way ahead of time or do you prefer the suspense of leaving it till the last minute?
Do you have a spouse that you have to force into Christmas shopping?
Delicious and easy to make truffles!
- 1 package (300g) mint chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 can (300 ml) sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup chocolate cookie crumbs
In a double boiler or heatproof boil over a pot of simmering water, melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove from heat and add the butter and stir to combine, add the condensed milk and again stir to combine completely. Lastly add the cookie crumbs and mix well until totally incorporated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to set completely.
Remove the bowl from the fridge and allow it to sit out for about 30 mins before you begin rolling. Once it has softened slightly, scoop heaping teaspoons of the chocolate mix and roll into balls. Place them on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Once all the balls are rolled, place the baking sheet into the freezer and allow them to set completely, about 45 mins to an hour.
Once they are set you can store them in an airtight container in the freezer until you are ready to use.
Make these and freeze them in an airtight container and they will last for weeks! They only take a few minutes to defrost when you need them.
