Brownie Truffles + Thursday Thoughts

This recipe is quick, especially when using a boxed mix, but the product is amazing and people will think you spent hours making them. You can make these for any holiday but changing the decorations but they are great for Christmas because they are a reprieve from the dry and broken cookies that come with the holiday.

Thursday Thoughts #5

·      For my podcast junkies: I have been loving the Creative Empire Podcast. The two hosts chat with guests about their businesses and business strategy

·      Need a cookbook for your favorite cook this Christmas? Here are some I love: Molly on the Range, The Pie Project, and anything by Ina Garten

·       Colder weather means more cuddling up and watching movies on Netflix! Some good ones that on streaming now: Spotlight, The Big Short, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (only if you've seen the first), The Jungle Book, The Imitation Game, and Trolls (if you haven't seen it, PLEASE watch it)
