Recipe and Pictures

So here's the recipe for the most delicious Cake Batter Truffles, and I found it on this website (which is a really cool website and has lots of neat stuff on it!).

Cake Batter Truffles

1 and 1/2 cups flour
1 cup yellow cake mix
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
3-4 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons sprinkles

Truffle Coating:
16 oz (8 squares) almond bark (or white candy melts)
4 tablespoons yellow cake mix

Beat together butter and sugar using an electric mixer until combined. Add cake mix, flour, salt, and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
Add 3 tablespoons of milk or more if needed to make a dough consistency. Mix in sprinkles by hand.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Chill balls in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to firm up.
While dough balls are chilling, melt almond bark in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Stir between intervals. Once melted, quickly stir in cake mix until incorporated completely. Dip truffles into almond bark and place back on the cookie sheet. Top with sprinkles. Chill cake batter truffles in the refrigerator until serving. Makes around 24-30 truffles.
Try this recipe, you won't regret it!!

Now, onto a some pictures from our park trip last night. Like I mentioned yesterday, we just set Sara Kate down in the field and let her take off and go where she wanted. I did direct her away from the sand volleyball court, and she never even made it to the playground equipment. She looked like such a big girl in her blue jeans! Thank you Old Navy sales and tax free weekend for those cute pants!! :-)
You can really see her bottom teeth coming in in this picture! The ones on each side of her bottom 2 have now broken through!
Today after church Chris' mom, sister, and the kids came over for lunch and a little play time before Jenny & Co. had to head back to Berryville. Chris snapped some GREAT pictures of Hannah and Hayden before they left! It all started when Hannah was laying in the grass, and I couldn't resist throwing (not literally) Hayden down there, too. I had to put Sara Kate down for a nap, otherwise she might have been included in this photo shoot.
Don't we have the most adorable niece?!? And isn't the picture where she's slinging her hair around awesome?!
And we can't forget adorable Mr. Giant Man Baby!! He's almost 6 months old...doesn't look like a 6 month old!
And here are the siblings. Love these 2 and their mama and daddy!
Hope everyone had a good weekend and has a great week!
