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!
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.
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!
