Oreo Truffles

That's right, it really does say Oreo® Truffles.  I stumbled across this delightful recipe last year.  The first time I made them, I really didn't even want to share them....one, because they were not pretty at all, it took a while to get the hang of rolling them in the melted chocolate....and two, because they were SO incredibly good.  I brought them to work this time when I made them and now everyone believes I am a master in the kitchen!  SWEET!  If that is really all it takes, I'm making a big batch or these and passing them out to everyone I know and even people I don't! lol

So I gotta ask....when it comes to Oreo cookies, are you a dunker???  I will admit, I am not.  When I was a kid, the thought of dunking my delicious cookies into a glass of milk brought on images of mushy cookies...ick!  I still have those thoughts now.  I will take the top off my Oreo® and eat that first, then eat the side with the cream on it...but that's the only way I roll.
 
These truffles are so easy to make.  Honestly, the worse part is dipping them in the chocolate and as long as you reheat the chocolate to make sure it stays nice and melted, and you have a bit of patience, it really isn't that difficult at all.  Plus, no matter how much work, these are ever so worth it.

Printable Recipe 
Ingredients:
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Philadelphia® Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg. (1lb. 2oz.) Oreo® Cookies, finely crushed, (about 4-1/4 cups) divided (I did not use the full package of cookies, I only crushed enough to equal 3 cups)
2 pkg. Baker's® Semi-Sweet Chocolate
Directions:
Mix the cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until well blended.

Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler.  Dip Oreo balls in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs (this was the step I skipped). 

Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.

How to Easily Dip Truffles
To easily coat truffles with the melted chocolate, add truffles, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll truffles in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove truffles with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place truffles on prepared baking sheet; let stand until firm.

yum! We make these every year for Christmas and they're so good! I like them even more if you dip them in white chocolate. Or better yet, use the mint oreos and dip them in the green colored chocolate...so good!! yours look so pretty!

How dare you tempt me like this? I've mentioned many times that I'm not a sweets person, but put me in the proximity of oreos or peanut butter cups and I'm a complete slut.

I made these AWESOME little truffles (though I used the mint Oreos) at Christmastime a couple of years ago and gave them to all of our friends and neighbors. They were a huge hit! Thanks for reminding me of these little treats.
