oreo truffles

The oreo truffle is pictured here with a peppermint and a raspberry truffle.

I made dozens and dozens of truffles for my family for Christmas. The Oreo ones were my favorite! I also made raspberry and mint truffles.

Adapted from this recipe.

>>Yields approximately 40 truffles

Ingredients

  • One 8oz package of cream cheese, softened (I used reduced fat)
  • One package (1lb, 2oz) Oreo cookies
  • One 12oz bag of chocolate chips, melted

Directions

1) Place the entire package of Oreo cookies into a food processor. Blend until finely crushed. Set aside 1/2 cup of the crumbs (these will be sprinkled on top of the truffles).

2) Mix the remaining Oreo crumbs with the cream cheese until they are thoroughly blended.

3) Shape into one-inch balls. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate chips. I used a fork and a spoon, passing the truffle back and forth to allow the access chocolate to drip off.

4) Place each truffle on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle the Oreo cookie crumbs you set aside on top.

5) Refrigerate for an hour, or until the outsides of the truffles have hardened.
