Ideas for Spring Entertaining: No Bake Dessert Recipe

It’s not officially spring yet, but it sure does feel like it! We’re gearing up for almost two straight weeks of spring like weather. Temps in the high fifties to low sixties with some rain here and there. Let me tell you, while we haven’t had any crazy cold weather or big snows (so far!) this year, I’m ready to enjoy the nice weather. I love spending time outdoors at festivals and events. And of course, hiking ranks pretty high on my list as well. My favorite thing to do during spring, however, is to entertain.

These bumblebee Oreo cookie truffles make an easy, no bake party dessert that both kids and adults will love digging into! They’re super fun to make. I chose to make my Oreo cookie truffles in the shape of bumblebees for this spring dessert recipe simply because I’ve always loved bees! Bumblebees, in fact, are my most favorite bees ever. This is despite being stung on my earlobe by a black and white bumblebee as a child. They’re just so adorable and generally lazy, that I’ve never really been frightened of them — bee sting or not! Besides, who can resist all those cute photos online of bumblebee butts nestled inside flowers?

Ready to try out my recipe for bumblebee Oreo cookie truffles? It’s really quite easy, and of course, there’s nothing to bake. So you can avoid a hot oven as the temps heat up outside. Here’s how to make your own bumblebee Oreo cookie truffles with cream cheese and white chocolate chip wings.

Bumblebee Oreo Cookie Truffles Recipe with Cream Cheese

Ingredients:

18 Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2-3 oz. Wilton Decorator Preferred black fondant

Ingredients for making bumblebee oreo cookie truffles1 ½ cup Wilton yellow candy melts
48 miniature white chocolate chips
48 Wilton candy eyeballs

Directions for Making Oreo Cookie Truffles:

To make this recipe for bumblebee Oreo cookie truffles, begin by lining a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Set aside for later use.

Chopping up oreo cookies in a food processor

Count out eighteen of the Oreo cookies. Then use a food processor to pulse the Oreos into fine crumbs.

Mixing crushed oreo cookies with cream cheese for oreo cookie truffles

Now combine the Oreo crumbs and cream cheese in a large bowl. Mix the Oreo crumbs and cream cheese together until thoroughly combined, with both ingredients being evenly distributed throughout.

Rolling crushed oreo cookies and cream cheese mixture together into ovals to make bumblebee oreo cookie truffles for spring entertaining

Once the ingredients for the Oreo cookie truffles are well-combined, roll out the Oreo mixture into twenty-four small ovals. The ovals should be about 1 ½ inches long and 1 inch wide and roughly the shape of a bumblebee. Set each oval shaped truffle onto the lined baking sheet you prepared previously. 

Now refrigerate the Oreo cookie truffles for at least a half hour.

Black fondant cut into strips with a knife

As the truffles chill, roll out black fondant until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. Use a paring knife to cut the fondant into 48 small strips, about 2 inches long and ¼ of an inch wide.

Then, use the remaining fondant to roll out 24 bee stingers: about ¼ of an inch in size each.

Once the Oreo cookie truffles are chilled, remove them from the refrigerator. Set aside.

Next, place yellow candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl.

Microwave the candy melts in 30-second intervals, mixing in between each interval, until the candy has completely melted. Take care not to overheat.

How to Assemble the Bumblebee Oreo Cookie Truffles:

To assemble your bumblebee cookie truffles, dip ¾ of the first Oreo truffle into the melted yellow candy.

Remove and place back onto the lined baking sheet. Working quickly, then add two strips of fondant to the dipped portion of the truffle. Follow with two white chocolate chips in the center between the fondant to act as wings for your bumblebee.

Next, add a tiny fondant stinger onto the end of the truffle. Be sure to continue to work quickly. You don’t want the melted candy to solidify before you’re able to add all of the features. Otherwise your additions may not adhere to the truffles.

Finally, add a drop of candy onto the back of two of the candy eyes. Then place the eyes onto the undipped portion of the truffle, using the melted candy as glue to hold the eyes to the body of the bumblebee.

Repeat for each of your bumblebee cookie truffles until there are none left remaining.

Then allow the bumblebee cookie truffles to set for at least 30 minutes. After which time, your bumblebee truffles are ready to serve for your guests to enjoy!

A Traditional Summer Treat

I still have fond memories of my parents giving me change to buy ice cream throughout summers as a child. Every year the ice cream truck would circle through our cul-de-sac to deliver treats to a neighborhood full of kids. I think my favorites were the chocolate Good Humor ice cream bars and, of course, bomb pops. These days, however, ice cream truck sightings are rare. They’re also the talk of the town. Just not for the reason you may think.

The only ice cream truck we ever see circling the block plays Christmas music. As if that wasn’t bizarre enough, the combination of Christmas tunes in the summer paired with the distortion from a pair of way back speakers sounds pretty f-ing creepy. I swear it reminds me of that movie, Killer Clown from Outer Space. It has that same eerie level of creep factor that’s both amusing and terrifying at the same time.

There are also no bright pictures or prices for ice cream painted onto the sides of this particular truck. Therefore, my friends and I always wonder what that ice cream truck is really a front for. We’ve never actually seen anyone buy ice cream from this truck. So for all we know the person inside could be selling drugs. Or perhaps it’s a secret gateway to hell.  (I mean hey, I did grow up in the 80’s. Anything is possible!) I’ve also wondered if other towns and cities like mine have experienced the same sort of killer clown ice cream truck phenomenon.

Luckily, all of the other food trucks in our area seem to legit. It’s just that one ice cream trucks that creeps me out more than the massage parlors dotted throughout our strip malls. Those, at least, aren’t emitting eery music or maneuvering  through our neighborhoods.

These days I’m obviously no longer dependant on quarters and dimes from my parents to get my ice cream fix. However, seeing as how I’m all grown up – in number not in heart – I enjoy making my own homemade popsicles from time to time. And what better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than with your own boozy popsicles speckled with edible flowers?

Benefits of Edible Lilac Flowers

One of my favorite spring flowers are lilacs. Lilac shrubs, which typically bloom in late spring, offer more than just their beautiful blooms. This flowering shrub yields a plethora of fragrant blooms that are not only pretty to look at, they are also edible and medicinal. A beautiful touch to garnish drinks for a spring brunch, lilac blooms offer a slightly bitter, floral flavor. (Much like some of my favorite cocktails. I am after all, a gin and tonic girl with an undying love for elderflowers and juniper berries.)

Medicinally, lilacs make a lovely ingredient in facial toners due to their astringent properties. (Next time you’re thinking of making rose water, why not try lilacs instead?) A warm or cold lilac infusion also makes a nice compress for rashes, cuts and other skin ailments due to its natural astringency. As a home remedy, lilacs have often been used to bring down fevers as well as to help with gastric issues such as gas, bloating and constipation.

Boozy Popsicles: A Twist on a Summer Treat (A Season Early)

Following is a simple and easy recipe for making boozy popsicles with gin and tonic. And of course a few (or a lot!) of fresh lilac flowers thrown into the mix. Not a fan of gin? Try swapping it with your favorite organic vodka instead!

Gin and Tonic Boozy Popsicles Recipe

Ingredients:

3 cups Fever Tree tonic water
1 1/2 oz. Botanica gin (or similar)
Squeeze of fresh lime juice
Fresh lilac blossoms, to suit

Directions:

Combine all the ingredient in a small pitcher and mix to combine. Then pour the mixture into popsicles molds of your choice. Pop into the freezer, then enjoy once frozen!

For slightly sweeter boozy popsicles, try using sugared lilac blossoms instead! Or try the Fever Tree elderflower tonic water in place of regular tonic water.

1. Unless you and your friends are craft addicts, keep the projects you choose for your women’s craft night ideas for adults simple and easy.

3. Be sure to allow plenty of room for everyone to work. While a round kitchen table works great for up to four guests, I turned to my outdoor patio table for larger gatherings. A larger table also makes it easy to create a casual craft filled tablescape with all of your tools and materials. If you don’t have a table that’s big enough, try pushing two tables together so everyone can work together in the same space.

4. You’ll want to also provide drinks and refreshments for all the women attending craft night as guests. Most of my friends are wine drinkers, so I like to have several bottles on hand. However, you can also make a delightful seasonal punch recipe. I also love to make a charcuterie board filled with a variety of meats and cheese, nuts and chutney. Hummus with veggies and pita chips are also always a win at a ladies craft night. Or make this amazing crowd pleasing black bean dip recipe.

They say the kitchen is the heart of your home. I find that’s especially true for me. My roommate Bambi loves to cook, so we are always hosting a weekly dinner night with significant others or friends. With summer on the way, we expect to do more summer entertaining than ever.

Top ten tips for successful summer entertaining! If you're as excited about getting into the swing of summer entertaining as we are, check out these great tips for opening your kitchen, and the rest of your home, to guests this summer. Plus the best pet friendly, non-toxic cleaning products for cleaning your home!

We recently moved my patio table into the backyard to use for summer entertaining as the weather heats up. Bambi loves to grill. So we have a grill on our list of things to buy this summer. There’s nothing more magical than BBQ and great friends as the sun goes down. We’re even thinking of making our own string light solar lanterns.

As Bambi is also a gamer, not just an incredible cook, we’re also looking forward to hosting more game nights. While I prefer games that are more in the realm of Exploding Kittens and Cards Against Humanity, Bambi prefers games of strategy. Hosting guests for summer game nights gives us both a chance to enjoy the games we love.

And of course, I’m looking forward to hosting a few ladies only craft nights as well. There’s something about the warm weather and shaking off the final remnants of those winter blues to inspire extra socializing.

Before summer entertaining gets into full swing however, it’s nice to take a minute and create an inviting space we feel proud to entertain in. Bambi and I are both a bit obsessive about both cleaning and creating the perfect space for hosting guests. It’s one of the many reasons we work so well as roommates – especially post divorce. It’s also why we are both such big fans of Grove Collaborative.

We both love the non-toxic and pet friendly products that Mrs. Meyer’s has to offer. (Bambi and I are both mommies to fur babies!) Not only are they effective at cleaning our home, they also look great by the kitchen sink.

If you aren’t already a Grove Collaborative member, you can get a free kit of Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap, hand soap, and lotion and replaceable head dish brush with your first order of just $20. We received this fantastic cleaning kit when we signed up and loved it! (You’ll want to hurry though as supplies are limited.)

Grove Co. offers more than just eco-conscious, non-toxic cleaning essentials. They also offer other homemaking and personal healthcare products from brands I trust. I buy Lovebug Here’s the Skinny Daily Probiotic at a discount from Grove for my own gut health. (Many of you know I suffer from fibromyalgia so vitamins and supplements are a must.)

Bambi on the other hand is crazy about Grove Collaborative’s Walnut Scouring Pads. In fact she ditched her regular brand of scouring pads for these after she tried them for the first time. She also loves Grove’s Cleaning Concentrate Essentials which are scented with natural essential oils. They’re another great way to get a pet safe, non-toxic clean we can both feel good about.

We also both found the Grove Collaborative Reusable Bag Essentials Set extremely useful. (I got these as a free gift as a part of Grove’s VIP member program.) These bags are super high quality and are great both in and out of the kitchen. We use the large bag for leftover Naan when Bambi makes curry. And the others for easily stashing personal care essentials when traveling and camping.

Place your first $20 order with Grove now to receive your free Mrs. Myer’s cleaning kit. Or, if you’re already a Grove Co. member, you’ll receive a free set of the Grove walnut scrubber sponges that Bambi is so fond of.

1. Hand wash summer accessories that have been in the cabinet all winter. Grove’s replaceable head dish brush has curved bristles and a sturdy bamboo handle that’s perfect for washing pitchers, platters, and prep boards.

2. Wipe down the counters to create a clean and tidy space for food prep and serving impromptu midnight snacks. All you need is some warm soapy water and a microfiber. I love the ones from Grove because they have a hanging corner for easy drying and storage.

3. Your sink gets a workout during the summer, from washing grilling utensils to cutting flowers. Make sure it’s up to the task by giving it a good scrub with a paste of baking soda and Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap.

4. Set up a beautiful sink side experience that makes everyone happy. Mrs. Meyer’s soaps and lotions come in a variety of cheerful scents like honeysuckle, lavender, and lemon verbena that guests of all ages will love.

5. Everyone’s always hungry after a day at the pool. Now is a great time to stock up on supplies like Bees Wrap and Grove reusable snack bags for storing cut-up fruit, cheese, and pretzels!

6. Cool drinks are a must for successful summer entertaining. Make sure your blender is ready for fresh fruit smoothies or frozen cocktails. Simply add a drop or two of dish soap and two cups of water and blend on high for 30 seconds. Then pour out the suds, rinse, and dry with a microfiber cloth.

7. Punch up your home decor with a pop of happy color, from new throw pillows to a fresh kitchen towel. I’m feeling inspired by lush greens like Grove’s garden tea towel.

8. Create an inviting entryway with plenty of space for guests to stash sandals, hats and pool gear. I like to stash my Full Circle dust pan and brush from Grove near the front door for quick cleanup of dirt and grass clippings.

9. The powder room is a small space, which means a little bit of effort goes a long way. Freshen it up for summer by laundering and fluffing up the rug, putting out a fresh hand towel, and switching out the hand soap and lotion for a summery scent.

10. Once you’ve submitted your Grove order, you’ll be signed up for the free 60 day VIP trial. The VIP program is a great way to keep your home streamlined all summer, with perks like free shipping, free gifts, price matching, exclusive sales and personal service. Now, it’s time to light a rose candle and enjoy the quiet while it lasts!

Lately, I’ve been drooling over all the bright, clean kitchens on Instagram.

Even though a full kitchen makeover isn’t in my budget, I’ve found some affordable ways to rediscover pride in my home, so I wanted to share them with you. (My roommate LOVES all of these ideas! Being a little OCD herself – like that’s a bad thing? – she’s always excited when my order from Grove Co. arrives.)

It’s amazing how something as simple as a good spring cleaning or a bouquet of fresh flowers on the counter can help you fall in love with the home you have — whether it’s a tiny apartment or your dream home.

Green Cleaning Tips & Tricks for Spring Entertaining

Step 1: Instead of treating spring cleaning as a chore, set the tone for an enjoyable day by opening the doors to let the spring air in and brewing a fresh pot of coffee.

Step 2: Start with a clean slate. Mrs. Meyer’s multi-surface spray makes quick work of cleaning appliances, the inside of the fridge, countertops, and backsplashes. Plus, it leaves your kitchen smelling like a spring garden!

Step 3: To get your pots and pans ready for new spring recipes, make a paste with Bon Ami and water and apply it all over. Let it sit for about 10 minutes, then wipe away those scorch marks with a sponge. I prefer Grove’s walnut scrubber sponges because they don’t scratch your cookware!

Step 4: The sink is probably the most used area in your kitchen, but gets the least love when it’s time to clean. Grab the Bon Ami again and sprinkle it on your sink and faucet, rub with a wet cloth, and then wipe clean. To freshen up your garbage disposal, squirt Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap into the disposal and run the disposal with hot water. The mint scent is especially good for neutralizing odors!

Step 5: Just like a statement necklace can make an old outfit feel new, sink-side accessories can totally transform your kitchen. I love Mrs. Meyer’s hand and dish soaps because they add a pop of cheerful color to my kitchen and smell amazing!

Step 6: Treat your kitchen to a fresh new towel in a spring color. I consider these Grove chef’s towels an essential, since they work for everything from wiping hands, to drying spills and dishes, to grabbing hot pans. The cornflower blue color is brand new, and you’ll be among the first to get one! 

Step 7: Trick your guests into thinking you redecorated with strategically placed accessories like a bamboo cutting board, a wooden handle dish brush, or a stoneware tray. I got all of mine from Grove! (And, if you’re a soapmaker like me, these are also the perfect props for photographing your homemade soaps to sell.)

Step 8: Of course, you can never go wrong with cut flowers. But lately, I love filling glass jars with fresh herbs like cilantro, mint, or chives. Decorative, and useful!
