Chocolate Delight Truffles!

These are the easiest things to make! As long as you have a little time!

1 Box of Brownie mix
2 cups semisweet choc chips
1/2 cup + Peanut Butter
and Parchment paper or wax paper

Follow directions on brownie mix and bake as instructed. I added 1/2 cup of choc chips to the mix to make the brownies even more chocolately!
You want the Brownies cooked but not completely! Still slightly gooey if that makes any sense.

After cooking brownies let them cool until they are a good temp to touch.
(About 20 minutes)
Ready to get yo hands dirty??...
Use a medium size scoop or your tablespoon measuring cup to scoop out brownie mix. Then roll brownie into a ball and place on cookie pan lined with parchment paper.
(I avoided the edges of the brownies so you wouldn't randomly have a crunchy texture in your ball. Plus it's one of the best parts of the brownie! Save it and eat while you wait on the truffles! ha!)
Continue to roll the brownies until you have none left.

Place your cookie pan in freezer and allow them to freeze at least 2 hours or overnight.

Once frozen, melt your Peanut butter and choc chips in microwave or a double burner.
I used the microwave and heated in 30 sec increments just to make sure I didn't burn the chocolate.
Let it cool just slightly so it doesn't burn you.

I said 1/2 +  cups of PB bc you can add as much PB as you like! I like the slight hint of the PB. It's not overwhelming.

Then take your brownie balls..ha! and place in melted chocolate.
I used a plastic fork to drag the balls out and drain some of the chocolate off. You can def. use your fingers or any method you can think of!
Then place back on your parchment/wax paper.
Continue dipping....
You will have some chocolate left over and you could use it to dip a frozen banana into! YUM! That's a whole nother recipe in itself!

I had some crushed Pecans so I placed some on top of about half the truffles, just to make them even more yummy!!
Now you can either chill them in the fridge for about an hour and let them harden...or dig in now!!
I personally like them chilled but test one out and see what you think!
i hope you enjoy them!
Let me know how it goes! :)

Kool Aid pie!

I'm sure most of you have had this or probably made this...but for those of you have not eaten this...Please make this ASAP! lol So simple and CHEAP!!
Graham Cracker pie crust
1- 8oz tub of fat free whipped cream
1 can of low fat/fat free eagle brand milk
3/4 package Kool aid of your choice.
(Unsweetened kind...Lime, Lemonade, Pink Lemonade and Orange are delicious!)
Mix Whip cream, eagle brand milk together in large mixing bowl. Slowly add in Kool aid powder...I say use 3/4 the package bc if you add the whole pack it makes it too tart! So slowly add the kool aid and use as much as you like for your tasting.
Pour into pie crust and let it sit in refrigerator at least for an hour.
If you are able to get fat free or low fat...this can be a great low fat dessert!!
Now cut and ENJOY the deliciousness!!
Great for Showers, Potlucks or just to have in the fridge for dessert! :)
