Chocolate, Gratitude

Oreo Truffles, Lemon Facials, and Sugar Hand Scrub

Today I am thankful for:

1. Oreo Truffles. I was told to bring something chocolate to our Thanksgiving celebration. I am often told to bring the chocolate because I adore chocolate, AND… Oreos and chocolate together make a beautiful partnership. This recipe is so simple… there is still time to make it. The best part is the smiles and mmmmm’s from my kids. Blessings!

Oreo Truffles

1 pkg. cream cheese

1 pkg. Oreos

1 pkg. chocolate candy coating

Blend together Oreos and cream cheese in food processor. Melt chocolate coating in microwave. Roll Oreo mixture into balls, dip in candy coating, and drop on wax paper to set.

2. Facials with my daughter. We have a lovely little facial recipe that feels heavenly: organic lemon juice and sugar. Sharing this time creates such a beautiful memory with her. The experience was capped off with some Lemon Sanpellegrino. Nice way to start off a school holiday. 

3. Our evening fun was finished off with a healthy helping of Sugar Hand Scrub. Our youth group is making all kinds of wonderful holiday treats to sell in order to make money for their Honduras mission trip. My daughter and I were luxuriating over the softness of our hands and the delightful smell of citrus. 

What are you thankful for today?
