Oreo Truffles

Speaking of all thing yummy, these are my favorite!!

Oreo Truffles

1 pkg Oreos

1 8oz pkg cream cheese

chocolate for melting, dipping, drizzling, etc.

Put whole package of cookies into food processor, frosting and all.  If you don’t have a food processor, you can crush them with a rolling pin in a large Zip-loc bag.  Either way, get them crushed to a nice crumbly mixture.

Add cream cheese so crumbs and mix, again, either by hand or with mixer, it makes no difference.

Shape the dough into balls, about an inch.  Chilling them works the best.  I just put them in the freezer while I melt the chocolate.

Melt chocolate.  Dip balls in chocolate.  Try not to eat them as you take them out of the chocolate.  Put them on waxed paper to cool.


I’m not kidding, these bad boys are so super delicious.  I like to dip mine in white chocolate and then drizzle milk chocolate over them.  DSC_2777You could dip them in milk chocolate and drizzle with white, or double dip in two different kinds of chocolate, or just sprinkle with nuts or sprinkles.  Really, the possibilities are endless.  Also, I think they would be yummy to make with mint Oreos and dip in chocolate, making kind of a grasshopper/thin mint flavor.  Mmmm.

And, just an FYI, since they do have cream cheese in them, you’ll want to keep them refrigerated.  What you DON’T want to do is leave a couple out in goodie bags that didn’t get delivered, go to your parent’s house for a week over Christmas, come back, see them, figure your house has been without heat and think just how delicious they are and then eat them, giving yourself a nasty case of food poisoning which will put you in bed for a day or so.  I’m just saying.
