When we had a Pinochle Party back in December, I made lots of little hors d'œuvres. The one on the bottom is one of my favorites though (a dessert, not an hors d'œuvre)... Oreo Truffles! Since St. Pat's Day is tomorrow, I thought I'd try 'em with mint Oreos.

Pretty schweet.

Mint Oreo Truffles

1 package Mint Oreo cookies
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
white chocolate bark

1. Crush cookies (filling and all) in food processor or in a ziplock using a rolling pin
2. Stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
3. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.
4. 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.
5. Once dry (if they get to that stage before you polish 'em all off), refrigerate and enjoy!
Makes about 36 truffles.

Goodness! Those sound so good! Wish I hadn't given up chocolate! Maybe I will make them on Sunday, lol!

One of these years I'll have to give up chocolate for Lent, just to see how much suffering I can really bear. :P

In the mean time, these look good, and I posted a whole wheat chocolate chip cookie recipe. Enjoy!

I love Tasty Tuesdays!! Thanks for all the great recipes. Here's my humble contribution. I adapted it from a parish cookbook, and it's a big hit with my husband:

Baked Chicken Breasts

2 chicken breasts, halved
1/4 c. crushed rice krispies
1/4 c. crushed Saltines
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. (or a little more) minced onion
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1/8 tsp. ginger
1/8 tsp. curry powder
1/4 c. mayonnaise

1. Preheat oven to 400. Lightly spray medium size shallow baking dish with veggie spray.
2. Rinse chicken and pat dry.
3. In a shallow pan, combine everything but chicken and mayo.
4. Spread chicken with mayo, then coat with crumb mixture. Place in prepared dish.
5. Bake uncovered for 45 or 50 minutes

Rice crispies, saltines, curry and mayonnaise? My interest is piqued for sure! When we can eat meat again (oh Easter, where art thou??) I'm putting this on my menu plan.

Thanks, y'all, for your contributions! I really do try the stuff you list (and thus far have not been disappointed!).
