P.S.-You're Invited . . . to make Oreo Wrapped Rolos!

So, I am a night time/weekend no bake mini treat maker (I know, best title ever) and a day time publicist at Atria Books at Simon & Schuster. This summer I worked on several titles, from a biscuit-centric (nom nom) southern heirloom cookbook to a super informative raw foods book. Often times, my worlds collide and I find myself working on a project that inspires me and hits home to my taste in food, photography, lifestyle, language, memories, you name it. One of my recent faves is a book called P.S-You're Erica Domesek, the DIY expert behind the lifestyle brand P.S.-I made this..

P.S.-You're Invited... is all about celebration. It has more than 40 DIY projects that will make your life more fun, exciting and colorful. It shows you how to take an old pair of shoes and turn them into your favorite pair, or turn a patterned t-shirt into adorable napkin rings for your next dinner party...or even make plain champagne flutes into gorgeous ones in a couple simple steps. While, No Bake Makery turns out only edible goodies...I can totally relate to this concept of embellishing life through your own personal touches.

For example, why just eat an oreo when you can eat an oreo truffle? Or why eat a rolo, when you can wrap it in oreo? And furthermore, why eat a truffle that doesn't have glitter on it? Ding ding ding! We are making Oreo Wrapped Rolos today! Here's the step by step but first, we must line up the tunes.

P.S. This treat was inspired by and created for a P.S.-You're Invited... DIY workshop and book signing at Bloomies.
Ingredients: 10 oreos, 2 teaspoons almond milk, 1 teaspoon cream cheese, 15 rolos, 1 cup white chocolate, edible glitter!
Place your cookies in the food processor and mix until crumbly. Then add your almond milk and cream cheese and mix until doughy. Next, place a rolo in the middle of a piece of dough like pictured above, wrap it up, roll it in the palm of your hands, remove the excess to make it tinier (about quarter size) and roll it again to perfect it. Refrigerate for an hour to firm.
Heat your white chocolate (or Wilton Candy Melts) in the microwave in 15 second intervals until melted. You can add a little bit of vegetable oil to make the chocolate thinner and easier to work with. It should fall of your fork easily. Dunk your truffle right in there.
After it's totally submerged, carefully bring it back up with a fork. Gently tap your fork against the cup to remove excess chocolate.
Carefullyyyyy slide it off the fork to place on wax paper.
Sprinkle with glitter!! Refrigerate until dry. About 30 minutes, depending on your chocolate.
Take em to a party!
