3 Ingredient No-Bake Cookies & Cream Truffle Recipe

Nothing says Pines & Quill like Niall MacCullough’s gourmet cooking, wine pairings, (and a murder or two)…

This delicious no-bake dessert is from page 135 of Impervious: A Sean McPherson Novel, Book 3. With only three ingredients, Cookies & Cream Truffles are easy to make:


This dessert is so easy. It only has three ingredients:
36 Oreo cookies
8 oz. softened cream cheese
12 oz. melted white chocolate

Crush the cookies and reserve two tablespoons of the mixture for sprinkling on top of the truffles.

Stir the crumbs and cream cheese together and chill it for about an hour.

Roll the mixture into golf ball-size portions and then dip them in the melted white chocolate

Place them on a platter lined with parchment paper, and sprinkle the reserved cookie crumbs on top before the chocolate hardens. Enjoy!

Impervious makes a wonderful holiday gift
and is available for preorder from your favorite online bookstore.

Many of you know that my husband, Len Buchanan, is the real-life inspiration for Niall MacCullough in the Sean McPherson novels.

Happy Holidays from our house to yours!

I Married a Cereal Killer

As we approach Halloween I think of the fun costumes we’ve worn in the past. My all-time favorite was Len being a cereal killer.

A close second was the year that Len painted himself black, I painted myself blue, we linked arms and went together as a bruise.

Masks are ideal costume accessories for Halloween, but many of us wear them throughout the year—pretending to be something other than who we are. If we don a mask to accommodate someone else’s idea of who we ought to be, it’s time to stop the masquerade; to remove it.

Don’t be held hostage by the opinion of others.

What was the last mask you wore?

P.S. Be sure to finish your to-boo list early so you can let your hair down, raise your hackles, and have a howling good time on Halloween. Bwahaha…
