First on the docket, we have a hot tip for purchasing bags. Staples is currently selling a box of 250 bags for $44.99. That works out to a mere $0.18 a bag! Wowza! As an added bonus, the bags are a very pleasant mint green color. They used to paint hospitals green you know. It soothed the patients. If you're not into soothing greens, it appears you also have the option of "electric blue." Join up with some friends and order several boxes to get free shipping. Check it out.... here.
We'd like to thank Christy for her excellent contribution of healthy truffles! Who doesn't like truffles after all?
"Take a dry fruit that is fairly moist (like a store-bought prune) and roll or dust with unsweetened cocoa powder. Healthy truffle! Kick it up by adding a little cayenne to the cocoa if you dare.
One can make a more complicated version that is a mixture of dried fruit that has been food-processed into something paste-like and then rolled into balls and dusted with cocoa. But the first way is really simple and good."
It's quick, it's easy, it's delicious! Give it a try. In fact, I'd probably fill a whole minty green bag full of them. Everybody loves a truffle! Come to think of it...I like prunes too. (Shhh, don't tell.)
