Oreo Football Truffles
1 package Oreo cookies (use cookie including the cream center)
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened) chocolate bark (for dipping)
1. Finely crush cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency. 2.Stir in softened cream cheese.Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together (I used my hands). 3. Roll the mixture into football shaped balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. 4. Melt chocolate as directed on the package and then dip footballs into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry. 5.) Once dry, pipe icing rings on the edges and laces on the top. 6.) Refrigerate.
Makes about 36 truffles.
And now that I got you in the mood for some football why not read Playing For Keeps?
Journalist Samantha Jameson always wanted to be one of the boys, but Ryan Terell won’t let her join the club. Fresh from the battlegrounds of Iraq, reporting on a bunch of overgrown boys playing pro football is just the change of scenery she needs. If trying to be taken seriously in the world of sports writing wasn’t hard enough, Ryan, her college crush, is only making it harder. As a tight-end for the team she’s covering, he is strictly off limits.
Ryan Terell is a playmaker on and off the field, but when Samantha uncovers his moves, he throws out the playbook. Just as he claims his sweetest victory, Samantha’s investigation into a steroid scandal involving his team forces him to call a time-out to their off the record trysts. But then a life threatening injury on the field will force them both to decide just how far they’ll go to win the game.
