America's Favorite...Truffle?


I'm sure this is just the most terrible thing for you, but that doesn't mean it's not delicious and fine to eat every once in a while.
I served these and the Joe's cookies for dessert at Sunday dinner and my family was freaking out, so I thought I'd share. 
Thanks Samantha for giving me this recipe!
Making Oreo truffles.
Ingredients:
1 pack of Oreo's
8 oz package for cream cheese
Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted (or any candy coating chocolate)
Directions:
1. Finely crush up all Oreo's (leave two out). 
You can used a food processor, Bosch, or a zip-lock and a rolling pin. 
2. Once the Oreo's are crushed, mix in the softened cream cheese.
3. Roll mixture into balls, 1-inch in diameter and place balls on cookie sheet covered with wax paper.
 4. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for about 2 minutes stirring every 30 seconds.
5. Once chocolate is melted, use two forks to dip the balls. 
This is the hardest part. Don't stress too much, as long as they're covered they'll be good and look fine. Mine looked terrible, but once they hardened they looked good. 
If you have any that look really bad, crush up the two Oreo's you kept out and sprinkle over the top.
6. Once all the balls are covered in chocolate, place the balls in the fridge for at least an hour, or until the shell is hardened.
7. Enjoy!
8. If you don't eat them all, store an in air-tight container in your fridge, or just bring them to me...

Pin It!

  7. They're a lot easier to dip if you freeze the oreo balls first!  We make these for Christmas every year--I highly recommend using mint oreo's--delish!  We also crush up candy canes to put on top, or just use sprinkles, it looks super cute!

  17. Oh my gosh! One time I was buying butter and a random little old woman came right up to me and asked me if I'd like to know how to make truffles. She gave me this recipe!!
    I'll definitely have to try them out now. It would seem the world is trying to tell me something.
