Oh gosh. Have you had these before? If not, get to your kitchen asap and make them! 3 ingredients and some time are all it takes.
They make a good gift- for the ones you love, maybe, on this Valentine's Day? If you're boycotting Valentine's, show yourself some love and make them anyway. I make these most every year for Christmas for the past 8 years, and they're always a hit.
Oreo Truffles are so easy and are no-bake, so they're pretty quick. One batch makes about 4-5 dozen truffles, depending on the size you want them. I like mine a little smaller (they're rich) and ended up with somewhere around 60 truffles. If you have kids around, recruit them to roll the dough into little balls. I am sure they'll love it.
1 package Oreos (approx 36 cookies)
1 block cream cheese, softened
1 bag chocolate chips or about 10-16 oz chocolate almond bark
In a food processor, chop up the Oreos in batches, until you have fine crumbs. Mix together the Oreo crumbs and the cream cheese until smooth and combined, and you have a thick, dark paste.
Roll the dough or paste into 1" balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper or parchment paper. For best results, place in refrigerator for approx 30 minutes to firm up.
Meanwhile, melt chocolate over a double boiler or in microwave, stirring occasionally.
Dip balls in chocolate until covered and return to cookie sheet to cool. Eat and enjoy!
