We’re having a Halloween party at work tomorrow. Everyone was asked to bring some sort of candy or treat. I’m always kind of conflicted with this type of thing, especially when it comes to desserts. Do I try to make something semi-healthy or do I say eff it and make something that I’m sure people will like? Though I’ve made bean brownies before (my friend Tanya would disagree, but they were good), usually I opt for the unhealthy treat. I’m much more confident to in my ability to find a good tasting healthy dish than a good tasting healthy dessert. My go-to is Oreo Truffles. Everyone loves these and they’re fairly easy to make with only three ingredients. However, it’s kind of time consuming to make them, so I went with something easy that I found on Pinterest. Easy and only two ingredients!
Well three if you count the powdered sugar on top.
My biggest concern making this recipe was that I didn’t really know what a jelly roll pan was. I google imaged it and it looked like a cookie sheet, so I put it on a cookie sheet.
I ran into a little bit of trouble, however, when I tried to remove them from the cookie sheet, oh I mean jelly roll pan. For whatever reason, the recipe specified an ungreased pan, and of course they stuck.
I managed to rescue most of them though and aside from being very sticky, they tasted pretty good. Ignore the awful picture. Don’t shoot with an f-stop of 1.8 even if it’s really dark or this is what happens.
The original recipe said it made ten bars at 363 calories each. I cut mine into 28 bars, so they’re significantly lower in calorie. Oh, except that I ate three that couldn’t be rescued. Maybe those don’t count.
I hope everyone is safe from the hurricane. I was worried about my family in the DC area, but they are all fine.
