Chocolate Chip (Perfectly Safe!) Cookie Dough Truffles
About two weeks ago, @vegantraveler posted the most hilarious card in her Vegan Laughs that really got me thinking. It had a picture of a vegan baker licking cake batter off a mixing whisk and bragging about how vegans get to eat all the batter they want! (Check it out over here: http://www.vingle.net/posts/586948-Why-I-love-Vegan-Baking) And it's true! While admittedly, I haven't been vegan or vegetarian in years (gasp), I do still eat vegan and vegetarian foods regularly and appreciate the added safety in plant-based recipes. With no egg, no meat, and no dairy, there's less risk of foodborne illnesses and a much longer shelf life. (It's also perfect in a potluck situation when you know it's going to be left out for a long time!) With that being said, you can share and enjoy these cookie dough truffles (made with vegan cookie dough) without all of the concern that usually comes along with eating raw dough. One of my sister's favorite activities to do each holiday season is make a huge batch of vegan truffles for friends, and this is certainly our most favorite! --------------------------------------------------------------- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup (2 sticks) vegan butter or margarine, room temperature 3/4 cup granulated sugar 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/3 cup soy or almond milk 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips 14 ounces of meltable chocolate (Ghiradelli and Godiva both make vegan melting chocolate, but other natural food brands do too.) 1. Beat butter and sugars and in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add cream and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt and mix on low speed (or by hand) until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. 2. Cover and chill dough for 1 hour. 3. When dough is firm enough to handle (it may help to lightly flour your hands), form dough into 1" balls and arrange on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Place sheets in freezer and let chill for 30 minutes. 4. Melt chocolate candy coating in a double boiler or in microwave according to package directions. Using forks or a dipping tool, dip cookie balls into candy coating to cover. Tap fork on side of pan to remove any excess coating, and return to waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Chill until set. Store, chilled, in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
White Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake
Caramel Sauce: 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 1 3/4 teaspoons lemon juice 1 pint heavy cream 4 tablespoons unsalted butter Before I get into making the sauce, let me note that this isn't the easiest way for most home cooks to go about making caramel sauce. Melting almost pure sugar in a pan is pesky and it can burn quite easily. If you're not feeling up to attempting this part of the recipe, feel free to buy your favorite caramel sauce and warm it gently to glaze the cheesecake. In a medium sauce pan over medium high heat (I'm using non-stick for this), combine the sugar and lemon juice. Stir with a wooden spoon until the sugar is mostly melted then set aside the spoon and swirl the pan over the heat to keep the color even throughout. Continue to cook and swirl until it sugar turns a medium amber color. Watch it carefully, the sugar will quickly darken and should it become dark brown or black it will taste bitter and unpleasant. When the sauce turns the right color slowly whisk in the cream. If the caramel hardens with the addition of the cream, do not worry. Just continue to add the cream and bring the mixture back to a a boil over medium heat. Continue to stir until the sugar has remelted. Allow to boil for 5 minutes then remove from heat and stir in the butter. Pour into a heat safe container and chill until ready to use. Crust: 10 ounces graham crackers, crushed into crumbs 7 tablespoons unsalted butter Cheesecake Filling: 3 8-ounce packages of cream cheese, room temperature 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar 1/2 cup heavy cream 8 ounces good quality white chocolate, chopped 5 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract pinch salt boiling water Pre-heat the oven to 375°F. Combine the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter and press into the bottom and 1 1/2 inches up the side of a 10 inch spring form pan. Bake for 10 minutes and then allow to cool completely on a wire rack. Reduce the heat to 325°F and prepare the cheesecake batter. Place the chopped white chocolate into a heat safe bowl and set aside. Bring the 1/2 cup of cream to a simmer over medium heat in a small sauce pan. Pour the hot cream over the white chocolate, jiggle the bowl to submerge it and allow to stand for one minute. Stir the chocolate gently until melted completely. In your mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese until smooth and lump free. Add the sugar and mix, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. On medium speed, slowly add the white chocolate ganache. Once combined you can add the eggs, one at a time, beating on low speed until each egg is incorporated. Once you've added all the eggs, mix in the vanilla and salt and pour into your prepared pan. Set the pan onto a couple large sheets of aluminum foil and smooth them up the sides of the pan to waterproof. Set the cheesecake into a large roasting pan and then place in the oven. Pour the boiling water into the roasting pan, filling to about one inch (no higher than the lowest edge of aluminum foil). Allow to make at 325°F for one hour then reduce heat and bake at 300°F for an additional 60-90 minutes until the center is just set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on a wire rack. Once cool chill for at least 4 hours before serving. To glaze, gently warm the 1 cup of the caramel sauce on the stove or in the microwave until slightly runny and then pour onto the cheesecake. Smooth the caramel over the cake and you're ready to serve. Enjoy.
7 Weird Weight Loss Tips That Don't Involve Exercising
If you're on a weight loss journey, but you hate exercising, test out these weight loss tips that don't require one minute of exercise. Tie a knot. If you're feeling daring, try Valerie Orsoni’s “Le Petit Secret." It's a method used by multiple French women who wear a ribbon around their waist when they go out to eat. It's supposed to keep you conscious of how much you're eating because the ribbon will start to feel tighter as the evening progresses. Eating for the Insta. Rather than logging down every morsel in a food journal/diary, take a picture of it. That way you can visualize how much food you're truly consuming. Eat off small blue plates. Putting your food onto small plates will give off the appearance that you have more food on your plate than you actually do. Also, the color blue functions as an appetite suppressant, so there's a reason why a lot of restaurants don't use them. Eat with your opposite hand. This will cause you to concentrate more on picking up your food and unconsciously slow down your food intake. Light a vanilla-scented candle after dinner. Studies show that the aroma of a vanilla candle will dampen dessert cravings. Hang a mirror opposite your seat at the table. You're less likely to shove that extra roll in your mouth when you're staring yourself in the eye during a meal. A mirror will help remind you of why you're trying to lose weight in the first place. Sit at the end of the table. Usually all the shared food such as appetizers, chips and salsa, bread, etc. are placed in the middle of the table for easy access to everyone. The farther away you sit, the least likely you will be tempted to go for seconds.

Divide graham cracker mixture among 24 paper lined muffin cups, adding about a heaping Tbsp to each. Press mixture into an even layer. Bake in preheated oven 5 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool while preparing filling. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar with 3 Tbsp flour until well blended. Add softened cream cheese to a separate mixing bowl and pour sugar mixture over top. Blend mixture on low speed until smooth. Mix in eggs one at a time and blend on low speed, while scrapping sides and bottom of bowl and mixing just until combined after each addition.

Bake in preheated oven 20 - 23 minutes, centers should still jiggle slightly, don't overbake (if they begin to crack they are starting to become overbaked). Remove from oven and allow to cool 1 hour. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and transfer to refrigerator and chill 2 hours. Serve chilled with a spoonful of Salted Caramel Sauce or Strawberry Sauce (note: for best results spoon topping on just before serving). Store in an airtight container in refrigerator or freeze.

Beat on low speed until well combined. 5. Add marshmallows in an even layer in the bottom of the pan, on top of crust. 6. Pour hot fudge topping over marshmallows. 7.

The water should not go above the top edge of the aluminum foil on the springform pan. 9. Bake for 1 hour and 35 minutes. Marshmallows may boil up through the top. 10. Turn off heat and leave cheesecake in oven with door closed for 20 minutes. 11. Crack oven door and leave the cheesecake in the oven for another 20 minutes or until set. 12. Remove from oven and chill. 13. Once completely chilled, preheat oven to 350 degrees on convection bake. 14. Remove springform pan sides from cheesecake and place cheesecake on a cookie sheet. 15. Top cheesecake with a layer of marshmallows. 16. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until marshmallows begin to brown. 17. Remove cheesecake from oven and drizzle with more hot fudge and graham cracker crumbs. 18. Cheesecake can be served warm out of the oven (which I recommend), or refrigerated and served cold.
