Oreo Truffles

DSC_0066 (2)

I have made these Oreo truffles several times, but this is the first time I put them on a stick.  I thought I would make them a little fancier for the Baptism.  They are super easy and so addicting 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg Oreo cookies (I like to use Double Stuff)
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 16 oz. semi-sweet chocolate or white chocolate (this time I used candy melts in white and blue)

Directions

Using a food processor, finely crush the Oreos.  If you don’t have a food processor you can put the Oreos in a Zip Lock bag and use a rolling pin to crush them.  Add the cream cheese to the crushed Oreos and combine.  Form into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Insert the lollipop sticks (optional) and place them in the freezer for 15 min.

In the meantime, melt the chocolate and/or white chocolate.  Dip the Oreo truffles into the chocolate.  This was not as easy as it sounds.  I have done this countless times wtih no problems with regular chocolate and white chocolate, but this was the first time I used the candy melts.  A few in to the dipping process I learned that twirling the oreo balls in the chocolate worked better than dipping. They didn’t come out as pretty as I would have like, but they still tasted delicous and no one seemed to care that they didn’t look quite like the perfect ones on Pinterest!  How do they do that??  You can decorate with additional Oreo crumbs, a chocolate drizzle, sprinkles, or whatever you choose!  Now try not to eat them before your company arrives 🙂
