Sugar Cookie Truffles

I LOVE making truffles. They’re so darned easy, and they’re so versatile. If you can melt it and mix it up, you can turn it into a truffle. I discovered cake batter truffles a while ago, and after Christmas cookie season rolled around, all I could think of was sugar cookies. So, I decided to see if I could tweak a cake batter truffle recipe by swapping out the cake mix for cookie mix. I wanted that buttery cookie taste surrounded by chocolate coating.

Recycled Candles and Wax Tarts

I love candles. In jars, or votives, or in little wax tarts that you melt with a warmer. We have scented candles in every room of the house. I like matching up scents with the season.  You would think I buy a lot of candles. Well, sometimes I do .  But most of the time, I reuse what I have. I get a lot of old wax tarts, and candles that have burned down to the very bottom.Some people just throw those out.  Not me! I recycle them into brand new candles!

Andes' Mint Fudge Cookies

Dark chocolate fudge batter. Green melty, minty pieces. Crispy edges and a gooey center. 
Okay, now that I’ve got your attention. . . I’ve wanted to share this recipe for a long time. Half because I think it’s a really good cookie, and half because there’s a story to go along with it. The best recipes always have a good backstory. The story to this cookie goes back a few years.
