Oreo Truffles




A huge shout out to Melody at Cheat Day Cafe for posting these morsels from heaven! If you haven't visited her blog yet, you're missing out. Her recipes and personality have me going back regularly!

What is it about these little bite sized treats do I love so much? I needed a treat to take to a baby shower, and since I've made cakeballs ad nauseum, I figured it was time for something different, so I made these, lol!

These Oreo truffles are simply divine, especially if you are a chocolate lover. And I love using the chocolate candy melts, rather then chocolate chips, because they made a very crisp coating that goes so well with the Oreo. Mmmmmm, next time I make these, I'm freezing half so that I can enjoy them for weeks to come!

Oreo Truffles
From Melody at Cheat Day Cafe

Ingredients

1 16 oz package of Oreos (not double stuff)
1 8 oz package of cream cheese
Dark Chocolate melts (I used Wilton, and they can be found at most craft stores)
White Chocolate melts, optional for garnish

Directions

1. Blend Oreos in a food processor until finely crushed.

2. Mix cream cheese in mixing bowl until creamy. Add Oreo crumbs, and blend until completely combined.

3. Roll into 1 inch balls, or smaller, place on a cookie sheet and freeze for at least twenty minutes to harden.

4. Melt dark chocolate. Dip each truffle into chocolate (I just used a spoon to coat the truffle, and then pulled it out, tapping excess chocolate on the side of the bowl). Place on wax paper to dry.

5. For garnish, melt white chocolate in a plastic ziplock bag. Snip tip of bag and drizzle over top of truffle. Once dried, store in refrigerator.

I like to use the double stuffed for mine. I started making these treats last year as a gift giveaway from the holiday. I think it will be an annual tradition as everyone always asks me when I'd be making them again. It's actually part of an assortment pack I make for friends and colleagues.

I make these OFTEN! and everytime I do, people go crazy! Only difference, is I cover them with white chocolate and drizzle with dark chocolate to make them EXTRA sweet!
