A Dessert for Taste & Create's Birthday


Taste and Create remains my favorite event in the whole blogging world. Every month, Nicole pairs you with another blog. You get to know your partner, then pick a recipe from their blog and recreate it. And this has been going on for three whole years. To celebrate the event's birthday, Nicole added a rider. She asked us to create a dessert from our partner's blog.

I've got to know some lovely bloggers through this event, none of which I would have discovered on my own. Like my partner this month - Glenda over at Busy at Home. This grandmother of three blogs about a lot more interesting things than just recipes. And her recipes are all a delight. At first glance, I shortlisted her chocolate cobbler and cheesecake stuffed strawberries.

But then I found another gem that you see up there : Oreo Balls. First you crush some oreos. You can do this in a food processor, but I found it equally easy (and more delightful) to bash them up with a rolling pin between two sheets of paper. You add cream cheese to these cookie crumbs to bind everything up. Roll them into balls, freeze for 15-20 minutes to set. Melt some chocolate, dip the balls and that's it!

This has to be the easiest dessert in the world. It might even look elegant if you can do the chocolate dipping neatly like Glenda. It's something I didn't manage even halfway, but they were delicious all the same.
