I left work early yesterday, so I didn’t get a chance to write. I got home and was super busy with last minute wrapping/baking and then babysitting my nephew, I didn’t have a spare minute to sit down and do anything else.
As promised, here is the recipe for the amazingly delicious Oreo Truffles! I made another batch last night and they turned out even better than the first round!!
What you’ll need:
1 – whole box Oreo cookies
1 – 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
2 – boxes Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate
What to do:
Crush oreos into a very fine almost powdery consistency (I used a food processor, worked awesome.) You won’t be able to see any of the white cream from the middles. Leave a little bit aside if you want to decorate finished balls with crumbs.
Mix crushed oreos with the 8 oz. package of cream cheese. You want this to feel like cookie dough, in a sense.
Start melting your chocolate according to package.
While chocolate is melting, roll cookie mixture into 1″ balls.
Place a piece of wax paper over a large plate. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT STEP. I didn’t do this with my first round and every ball got stuck – and ruined.
When ready, start dipping balls into chocolate. There is no real easy way to do this, but I found using a regular metal spoon to fish them out of the chocolate worked best. Place dipped balls onto wax papered plate.
If you set aside a little bit of the crushed oreos to garnish, sprinkle them on the balls now.
When all balls are dipped, put plate into refrigerator for at least a half an hour, or until hard.
You can package these up in to cute festive bags for gift giving or put them on a tray to serve at a party or just eat them all yourself (you’ll want to!)!!!
