WOW Christmas Party


December 2nd was our annual party.
Betty helped me make these church mice cookies for dessert. I thought you'd like the recipe for any parties you may go to this year. They are kind of a pain in the aft to make, but people love them.

CHURCH MICE COOKIES
1 package oreo cookies (I use double stuff)
1 small jar maraschino cherries with stems
1 (12 oz.) package chocolate chips (Can also use chocolate wafers with no shortening)
2 tblsp. shortening
1 small package sliced/slivered almonds
Red & green decorator gel. Try to find the ones with the sparkles. Blue looks good for the eyes.
1 bag Hershey kisses. Try some of the kisses filled with cherry cordial creme - oh, heaven!
Separate top of cookie.
Drain cherries.
Melt chips & shortening. Double boiler is best.
Dip cherries, stems on, into melted chocolate. Press cherry onto a kiss to make the head and place on top of cookie. You might have to hold in place for a few moments to let it set.
Slide in 2 slivered almonds for ears. Sometimes I use a toothpick to drip a couple more drops of chocolate to use as glue to make sure they stay.
Draw holly with red berries on side of white cookie filling. I just put red dots for cherry kisses, green dots for normal kisses.
Oink out.

Betty made Oreo truffles. Yum.
They are very rich and easy to make.

1 lb package Oreo cookies, finely crushed
1 (8 oz.) cream cheese at room temperature
Mix together thoroughly.
Roll into balls, whatever size you want and freeze.
Melt chocolate wafers in double boiler.
Dip frozen balls into chocolate, using a fork to shake off excess chocolate.
Place on foil sheet to set.

One of the other ladies made cookies - how cute are those little motorcycles!

Alright, I'm off to bed now. Too tired to do next post. Laters, gaters. [Crossposted from DW. Apparently, I like to spread my boring Spam all over the Internet. And, I paid for both sites, so I should use them like a mad monkey. Comment at either place, I'm easy.]

No - we ate them ALL!!

they would have gotten all stale by the time you got home, anyway.

In fact, you should be home by now - hope to catch up with you one of these days.
