The centerpiece was the Cake Pops!
I filled the tins with styrofoam and cover the ugly white foam pieces with some red shredded paper, then just stuck my pops in so they were easy to grab and easy to refill.
I used a variety of tins for some of the other treats.
The goodies I made included chocolate dipped pretzel rods, white chocolate mini pretzels, Rice Krispie treats, haystacks, chocolate covered Ritz with peanutbutter, dark chocolate dipped marshmallows, cake pops and my favorite, oreo truffles.
If you have never made oreo truffles- they are heavenly and easy to make.
Take one package of oreos and stick it in your blender and grind them up cream and all - until they are fine crumbs. Throw the crumbs and a bar of softened cream cheese in a bowl and mix until well blended. Roll the crumb and cream cheese paste into small balls and place the balls in the freezer for a couple of hours. Dip the cold oreo balls in chocolate and then back in the refrigerator to set up.
If you don't eat too much of the oreo paste as you are rolling the balls - you should end up with about 50 truffles! But they won't last long, they are addicting.
The easiest treat to make was the chocolate dipped marshmallows!
and of course, you can't have an Ohio State dessert table without Buckeyes!! These were already provided so thankfully I did not have to hand dip all of those.
It was a great celebration for all of this young lady's accomplishments and we wish her the best in her collegiate career!
