No Tricks, All Treats

Jax decided he wanted to make some "treats" for his Sunday School teachers and the nursery workers, so that is what he and I spent the day doing on Halloween. It was sooo the perfect day! Sunny outside & very cool. We snuggled in our pajamas all day long & enjoyed our Saturday!

Jax relaxing, ready to make some truffles!

They MUST be packaged in a fun way!

Working hard putting the ribbons on.

Setting it all up...

Counting to see if there's enough...

Lots of boxes...


Havin fun!

The finished product.

All ready for church in the morning!

These truffles were SUPER EASY (um...I made them lol) & so yummy. Thanks to Barefoot Contessa for the recipe:
Chocolate Truffles


1/2 lb bittersweet chocolate (Lindt is good)

1/2 lb semisweet chocolate (Ghiradelli is good)

1 cup heavy cream

1 tablespoon prepared coffee

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cocoa powder, confectioners sugar, sprinkles, nuts etc. (to cover the truffle)


Place chocolates in heat proof mixing bowl.

Heat cream until it just boils & allow to sit for about 20 secs. Pour through a fine mesh sieve into the chocolate. Add vanilla & coffee. Stir with wire whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Set aside for an hour. (recipe says @ room temp, but after the hour at room temp I put it in the refrigerator for about 30 mins to help it set) Scoop out & roll in your hands to form balls. Roll in topping of your choice. Refrigerate, serve @ room temp.

Enjoy! :)
