Oreo Truffles



Happy New Year!!  I hope everyone had a great holiday season and is settling into the new year.  I can't believe 2011 is over, but I am looking forward to 2012.  I started blogging late in 2011 and I am really enjoying myself.  I enjoy the community of bloggers, all of the amazing recipes I have found, sharing my creations and failures, and all of my readers and your comments.  Thank you! 

Did you make any resolutions?  I am not really going to make any resolutions.  I won't write them down anyway.  But I would like to improve on my photography this year and I would like for my husband to finish our basement :).  The basement has been an ongoing project for several years.  I know if I would let him go down there for a month straight he would finish it but when he is home I usually want him around!

Question for you - Do you like Oreos? Stupid question right? Who doesn't love Oreos? Well, my son, Alex, doesn't but that is a story for another day. I found these Oreo truffles on the Kraft Recipes website and they looked yummy and easy- perfect combination!  I was a little apprehensive.  I have never made truffles before but this is one experiment that I loved.  Loved making them and loved eating them.  I think they came out great.  Might be the easiest recipe you come across.


Oreo Truffles

1 16 ounce package Oreo Cookies, finely crushed
1 8 ounce package Cream Cheese, softened
16 ounces of semi sweet chocolate, melted

1.  Place Oreos in a ziploc bag and crush until fine.  I used a rolling pin and then a mallet.  I need a food processor!
2.  Combine 3 cups of the Oreos and softened cream cheese. Blend using spatula or spoon until creamy.
3.  Shape into balls.  I used a small scoop to get uniform sized balls.
4.  Chill in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
5.  Melt chocolate.  I melted mine in a double boiler and then transferred to a bowl that made dipping easier.  Dip balls in melted chocolate and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Sprinkle with remaining Oreo crumbs.
6.  Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.  Enjoy!!
