Kraft Kitchen Wonders using Oreo

Last August 2, Kraft Philippines invited us to an intimate kitchen bonding activity at their Kraft Kulinarya Kitchen in Sucat, Paranaque.

We were served Expresso Cream Cheese Spread as soon as we came in.
The first dessert we were assigned to do was the white chocolate Oreo truffles. One pack of Oreo Cookie crumbs was blended with two cups of Philadelphia cream cheese to make the truffle dough.

We made small one-inch balls by rolling it in the palm of our hands. I was glad that I have gloves on since this process is somewhat messy. The hand-rolled truffles  are then covered with a white chocolate shell by rolling it again in melted white chocolate bowl using forks until evenly coated.

Remove coated truffles with forks to let excess chocolate drip back into bowl. The truffles are placed on small cupcake sheets, sprinkled with candies and left to stand until firm.

These white chocolate oreo truffles are so easy to make and  make great gifts any time. Anyone could make some homemade chocolate truffles as a surprise treat gift for your mom or family.  You can also have it personalised to their own favorite flavors.

It was my first time to make a healthy pizza out of Cavendish bananas and Oreos!

The setup for our pizza making was more on pizza decorating since we skipped the dough making with the pre-cooked dough provided. We lined the flat round bread with butter and peanut butter as its pizza sauce. Then our next job was to add in toppings according to taste from choice of bananas, oreo cookie crumbs, chopped nuts and cheese. Then the pizza is baked in an oven.
If you want a lighter and healthier pizza, you can try this at home.   It came out wonderful from the oven and even tasted good.  Biting into it reminded me of the butterfinger candy bar taste! This is a simple mouth- watering pizza you can serve at home minus the hard work.

Chef Selina David then showed us how to make the Oreo Alamode.

With these simple instructions, you can make them any Oreo dessert in the comforts of your kitchen and enjoy the fresh, rich flavor of homemade chocolate truffles.

Thank you to Kraft for showing me wonderful and luxurious ways to treat my family (including myself) to these special Oreo desserts.

HealthCheQ your way to a Zesty Well-Being

Making time for well being is not always on an individual's priority list when life zips by in a blur. The 'to do' list seems to keep on growing despite working frantically. We shun hospitals and visits to the doctor up until our bodies' warning lights flash "pay attention".

Healthway introduced HealthCheQ as an exciting option to get an executive check up in an event at the Nurture Spa Village, Tagaytay last July 26.
