A few weeks ago Marc’s friend Mike (who loves to refer to my blog as “the cupcake diaries”) asked Marc if he was ever going to take a turn making dessert. The Lewison’s are definitely known for bringing the cookies, brownies and trifles to the party, but it’s mainly Mrs. Lewison (me) who works hard at creating all of those yummies.
So Marc decided it was his time and set out to create something sweet in the kitchen.
I have to give him credit- he came up with a really great idea.
Take your standard Oreo Truffle-
And put a peppermint kiss in the middle!
Not only did he come up with the idea- but he also worked very hard to make his vision become reality.
These were awesome! And very simple. All you need to do is follow this recipe, but start with a Hershey Kiss as your center.
This will most likely be the first and only time you see Marc making desserts in the kitchen! Even though this was a total success- I think that I’ll stick to the baking and he can continue to be my taste tester.
My good friend Megan threw her husband Chris a surprise party this past weekend. The party was at one of our favorite restaurants, Chicago Q.
Or maybe because Megan really did a great job pulling off this belated birthday party.
And she was kind enough to let Sammy and I create the party favors.
