Thanksgiving is just around the corner and you may be looking for inspiration of what kind of treats you can bring to your own dinners. The only ingredients you need are Oreos, cream cheese and white chocolate. They only take about 25 minutes to prep and then you’ll be ready for your desert. Store leftover Oreo balls in refrigerator.



Oreo Balls

Ingredients- 1 package Oreos, One 8-ounce package cream cheese and Two 8-ounce bags semi-sweet white chocolate chips, melted

How To Make- Total time: 30 minutes

Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor; reserve for later. (Cookies can also be finely crushed in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin.) Crush remaining 36 cookies to fine crumbs; place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended. Roll cookie mix into 42 balls, about 1-inch. Place the chocolate in a glass bowl and heat it over a pot of boiling water; stir until soupy. Dip balls in white chocolate; place on wax paper-covered baking sheet.

Final Steps- Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store leftover truffles. These are a must-have at any Thanksgiving feast. They are easy to make and eat, and won’t cause any hassle. While there are many similar recipes out there, this one is unique because of the use of white chocolate and cookie crumbs.

Turkey Sliders

Ingredients- Leftover turkey (the dark meat, which is the meat from the thighs and legs), ½ onion, Iceberg lettuce, Tomatoes, Hawaiian bread and Cranberry sauce

How To Make- Total time: 25 minutes

Slice the Hawaiian bread in half. Set the stove to medium-high. In a small pan, place turkey on it for 5 minutes, flipping when the 5 minutes are over. Place sliced onions in the pan after finishing with the turkey, cook them until caramelized, a golden brown color. Spread the already cooked cranberry sauce on the bread, only a half spoonful. Place the turkey on the bread and add the lettuce, tomatoes and onions.

Final Steps- Making these after eating the same thing over and over is very helpful. Just cook the onions and cut the bread in half to make mini sliders and heat up the turkey. Then assemble it, making an easy and creative way to have a mini leftover Thanksgiving in a different form.
