Yeah, I know, Rice Krispie Treats again…but come on, look at them, how could I not? Plus I am addressing the “I never have time to cook”. Which I call BS on. I think if you like to do anything; you will find time for it. Why not just say I don’t really like to do that. I don’t like to run, I just tell people, I don’t like to run…I don’t say I don’t have time to run. And my friends who all say they never have time seem to be the people who love to scrapbook. Which fine, scrapbook away. But that takes time, a lot of time, and money. And well, no offense to scrapbookers of the world, but people would rather eat cookies than sit on your couch and thumb through your family vacation to the Grand Canyon complete with matching stickers. Scrapbooking and photo albums is todays version of slide shows from when I was a kid, and most people are too polite enough (funny that can be polite then, no other times) and suffer through them.
Even with making the cookie dough truffles, these took me 30 minutes to make (if you don’t count the 30 minutes I let them set up). I did laundry while waiting for the truffles to set up. You could be doing whatever household thing you need to do. For those wondering, I use the truffles because number one they keep their shape better than regular cookie dough, and number two, no eggs. People get picky about the egg thing. You will want to cut these small, as these are filled with the cookie dough pieces.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend and a nice Easter if you celebrate that.
