These truffles are a great treat during the colder months because I think they just plain old taste better when it’s cold out.

Not only that, have you ever watched a child hold a chocolate anything during the warmer months? Um yeah, not a pretty sight. It’s kind of a meltdown in slow motion as they get frustrated and the chocolate goes everywhere! :)

These Mint Oreo Truffles are great for Easter too!

If I may, Happy Birthday to Megamommy! Did you know Megamommy is 2 years old this month? Yes it’s true, although I still can’t believe it! I am so thankful to all of you that read my blog and allow me to do what I love doing!

Two years ago I had NO idea what was ahead of me, or the amount of work it would take to get the blog where I want it to be. Still working on that one. What a truly wonderful experience it has been!

A few years of my Megamommy journey summed up quickly…

2012 Megamommy started in November after years of wanting to start my own blog. For several years I pondered the “perfect” way to do everything for the blog. After wasting a lot of time I realized I just had to start! Nothing was perfect, certainly not my pictures. But a person has to start somewhere, and so I did!

2013 I began to learn how to earned how balance the blog and all the other jobs I have in life. Some of my responsibilities include being a vendor at our local farmers’ market, helping at our family-operated apple orchard, baking for the farmers’ market each week, working, being a mom, being a wife, and the list goes on. Like so many of you, I wear many different hats.

2014 has been an incredibly busy year! I have grown and changed as a blogger. As always I am thankful to each and every single one of you that stops to take a look at my little corner of the world. Much more to come, I promise!

Yes, I am a messy baker. As you can see I have wax paper over my cutting board to help with the mess. You will want to be sure to line your cookie sheets with wax paper or baking mats.

Naked truffles here, make sure your cookie dough is shaped into nice balls. It makes the whole process much easier!
