Travel Aid Truffles... Thin Minty Fresh

In fact, I should probably finish packing instead of watching Modern Family while writing this blog.... at least I thrive under pressure, and will almost definitely finish packing before it technically becomes tomorrow.

To kick off my travels and tide over my co-workers, I made an incredibly simple batch of Thin Mint Oreo Truffles.

Friday night, we all threw a company baby shower complete with games, dinner, and plenty of Young Idealistic Baker treats!
