We love you, Joni!!

We have been blessed this summer to spend a few weeks with our favorite intern, Joni! She is a light around the studio with her perky personality. She is smart and funny and always enthusiastic about our studio projects. Joni's joy for life and for the Lord are simply contagious! Oh... AND she is also a student at UNC - Go Tarheels!!

Joni is also handy in the kitchen and has shared some of her sweet treats with us this summer. Our favorite are her oreo balls. Below is the recipe to try for yourself - BEWARE... they are delicious!!


25-35 Walnut size candies

1 pkg regular size Oreo cookies, crushed

1 (8 oz.) pkg cream cheese, softened

1 pkg white almond bark

1 pkg chocolate almond bark

Using a blender, mix Oreos and cream cheese together.

Roll into walnut size balls.

Chill for 35 minutes in the fridge.

Melt 1/2 pkgs white and chocolate almond bark together.

Stick a toothpick in an Oreo ball and dip it in the melted white almond bark.

Allow to harden on wax paper.

Takes about 15 min.

** If you want to make them festive, add colored sprinkles or an M&M at the top after dipping to cover the toothpick hole.


For now, Joni is off to her next summer adventure. She is heading to India with UNC's business school! As the trip coordinator, she has planned visits around the country for herself and fellow students to learn more about the cultural differences in the world of business. We are so proud of her and excited to hear about her trip when she returns!

Have a great time in India, Joni! We will miss you!
