Today is my son’s first baseball game of the spring season, in the Minors!!! He has been playing baseball for a couple years, but now he is with the big boys and I am so incredibly proud of him! My son is only seven, but will be playing with boys up to age ten. I can’t wait to watch him, especially on the pitching mound. My heart will be racing, the camera will be clicking, and I am sure I will shed a tear or two (the happy and proud kind of course)! He absolutely amazes me on the field and makes me so honored to be his mom!
Later today, we are having some friends over for an early St. Patrick’s Day Party, More »
WOW! Candy Cane Oreo Balls are absolutely amazing! My husband loves them so much that he says, “they are life-changing”! Since the Pumpkin Pie Pops that I made on Halloween were so incredible and such a huge hit at a party, I thought it would be fun to try a Christmas version. Awhile ago, my friend made some Oreo Balls using regular oreos and shared some with our family. They were wonderful and my husband wanted me to make a batch, immediately! When I saw the Candy Cane Oreos at Target, my first thought was to make this incredible dessert! Aubrey and I just hosted our Letters to Santa Party on Sunday and it was the perfect occasion for Candy Cane Oreo Balls! They were super easy to make and were quite the crowd pleaser! One thing to note is that the Candy Cane Oreos bag is a little smaller than the regular Oreos, so I added some regular Oreos, and then some with only the cookie part (not the frosting). I did not count the number of cookies that I added, but I continued to check the consistency in the food processor and added more when needed. You should head on over to Target today and grab a bag of Candy Cane Oreos because this dessert is one you want to try.
Candy Cane Oreo Balls are unbelievably delicious and a perfect dessert for the holidays! They are really easy to make, can be made the night before your event, and your family and friends will love them!
