Oreo Truffles – Pure Indulgence

One can simply not resist these yummy and delicious Oreo Truffles that my kids and I make.  They are such a big hit at Christmas-time that we also make them for a scrumptious Valentine’s Day treat, as well!

The kids have a blast rolling the mixture into balls, coating them in the chocolate, then, of course, licking their fingers!

If you like Oreo cookies, you will LOVE these rich truffles!

Oreo Truffles

OREO TRUFFLES

1 pkg. (1 lb., 2 oz.) OREO Cookies, crumbled

1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened

2 pkg. (8 oz. each) Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted

CRUSH the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor; reserve for later use. We generally crush the cookies in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin. Set aside about 1/4 cup and place the rest in a medium bowl. Add cream cheese and mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1-inch in diameter.

COVER balls in chocolate – I place each ball on a fork, over the bowl of melted chocolate, and then spoon the melted chocolate over it until coated. Place each coated ball on a wax paper-covered baking sheet. (Any leftover chocolate can be stored at room temperature for another use.)

SPRINKLE with reserved cookie crumbs.

REFRIGERATE until firm, about 1 hour.

ENJOY!

These truffles are so rich that you will probably not be able to eat more than one at a time, so be sure to store these babies in the fridge for the next time you get the craving to indulge!
