Oreo Truffles

My friend Jenn's son's birthday party was this weekend and he is the truffle king. Anytime he comes to our house he asks if I have any of those chocolate things in my fridge. I made up my mind to make him special truffles for his birthday and boy did I succeed! I got the recipe for these Oreo truffles from my sister Cathy, I have a feeling that hers looked better though. I used two types of melting chocolate, dark and white, and the white didn't work out so well. Naturally those are the ones I remembered to take a picture of.

Here's what you need:

  • 1-1/2 lbs Double Stuff Oreos (package and a half)
  • 1 (8oz) package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 package melting chocolate for dipping

What to do:
  • Place cookies in a zippered bag and crush into tiny pieces (you can use your hands or a rolling pin)
  • Put the crushed cookies in a mixing bowl and add the cream cheese
  • Use a hand mixer and blend them together
  • Place dough in fridge for about an hour to let the dough chill (makes it easier to roll)
  • Form the dough into little balls
  • Dip each ball into melted chocolate and place on waxed paper to cool
  • Once chocolate has cooled place the truffles in a bag or container and refrigerate.

I make these at the holidays and call them Oreo balls. I like the sound of Oreo truffles better, though. :)

I use a regular package of Oreos (not Double-Stuff) and grind them in the food processor. Then I mix in a package of cream cheese with my hands. It's messy, but for me it's the best way. I roll the mixture into balls and then put the balls in the refrigerator. That's the best way I've found to make them easier to dip in chocolate.

I just made dark chocolate coconut-pecan bars (which I'm calling Hawaiian brownies) for our MoMs meeting today. Between that and thinking about Oreo truffles, I'm getting hungry!
