Oreo Truffles

Category: , , , ,

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. 

Oreo Truffles

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!
