So two weeks ago I received an email titled, “Recipe Exchange.” I was both intrigued and excited!
We are participating in a collective, constructive, and hopefully TASTY experiment. As such, you have been invited to be part of a recipe exchange concept. We have picked those we think would make this fun. Please send a recipe to the person whose name is in position 1 (even if you don’t know him/her) and it should be something quick, easy and without rare ingredients. Actually, the best one is the one you know in your head and can type right now. Don’t agonize over it, it is one you make when you are short of time.
After you’ve sent the recipe to the person in position 1 below and only to that person, copy this letter into a new email, move my name to position 1 and put your name in position 2. Only my and your name should show when you send your email. Send to 20 friends BCC (blind copy). If you cannot do this within 5 days, let me know so it will be fair to those participating. You should receive LOTS of recipes, and it’s fun to see where they come from! Seldom does anyone drop out because we all need new ideas. The turnaround is fast as there are only 2 names on the list and you only have to do it once!
If you decide to try this with your own group of family/friends, please put my name down as Name #1, and then yourself as Name #2. My email address can be found on the “Contact” section in the right hand column.
So what did I send to Name #1? A dessert recipe that was handed to my mother from one of my aunts:
- 1 (16 ounce) package Oreo Cookies, crushed
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 (24 ounce) package white chocolate bark
- 1 (24 ounce) package chocolate bark or almond bark
- Using a blender or hand-held mixer, mix Oreos and cream cheese together.
- Roll into walnut size balls and place on a cookie sheet.
- Chill for 1 hour.
- Melt approximately 3/4 package of (your choice) of chocolate bark.
- Stick a toothpick in an Oreo ball and dip it in the melted bark.
- Allow to harden on wax paper. Takes about 15 minutes.
- While waiting, melt about 1/4 package of other chocolate bark.
- When Oreo balls are no longer sticky to the touch, decorate with drizzles of dark and white chocolate. You can use a sandwich bag with a tiny hole cut in one corner to drizzle.
