Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Oreo Truffles...

49 degrees - 1:00 pm - sunny with scattered clouds...

Have you ever tried Oreo Truffles?  They are rich, delicious, and very easy to make!  I sometimes make truffles around the holidays for the various parties, and I always get requests for copies of the recipe and more truffles.  So this year, I am getting the recipe out early, so you can make some of these for your holiday parties.

~ Oreo Truffles ~
1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 pkg. Oreos
2 pkgs. (8 squares each) Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted

Set aside 5 Oreos and throw the rest in a food processor until they are finely crumbled.  Thoroughly mix cookie crumbs with cream cheese.  Form the crumbled cookie and cream cheese mixture into approximately 1-inch balls, and place onto a wax lined cookie sheet.  (For best results, put the formed mixture into the fridge for at least 15 minutes to chill while you complete the next step.)

Melt the semi-sweet chocolate squares in a double boiler, stirring frequently, until it is completely melted.  Remove pot from heat.  Coat previously formed balls with chocolate and return to the lined cookie sheet.

Throw the remaining 5 cookies in the food processor.  Sprinkle some of those crumbs on top of the still wet truffles.  Refrigerate for one hour.

This recipe will make approximately 4 dozen truffles (or maybe a little less, depending on how much of the filling you choose to sample).

--- Enjoy!
