I've been in love with these little truffles for years. They're so easy to make and require only three ingredients. And they're yummy! Everyone loves them. In fact, they're one of my most requested contributions for parties and get-togethers. They look fabulous on a goodie tray at the holidays, too.
Here's what you need:
1 pkg Oreos
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
Melted chocolate - I use one bag of milk chocolate chips and one bag of dark chocolate chips
and a little white chocolate for decoration
Place the entire package of Oreos in a blender or food processor. If you don't have a blender or processor, place the cookies in a Ziploc bag and pound them with a rolling pin or meat mallet. You get the same result.
Pulse until all of the cookies are smooshed into tiny little crumbs.
Now place the cream cheese in a mixing bowl and smoosh it around. Why do I keep using that word, smoosh?
Add the oreo crumbs to the bowl and mix until everything is incorporated.
Shape the mixture into small lumps, using your hands or a cookie scoop. Place on a baking sheet covered with wax paper.
Now go back and roll each lump into a smooth ball. Place in the freezer for up to an hour.
After an hour, remove the Oreo balls from the freezer and dip into the chocolate. Place back on the baking sheet and into the freezer again until set.
This recipe makes about 3 1/2 dozen truffles. Store in the fridge if possible. Most of the time I don't have to do this because they don't last long enough to require refrigeration!
