OREO TRUFFLES
Serves: 40 truffles (approximately)
 
Ingredients
  • 1 lb Oreo cookies (three sleeves, so might as well buy two packages because you know you want to do it make twice as much and still be able to eat cookies while you create these divine balls of chocolate joy)
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract (do NOT use fake extract, come on people.. love yourself! If you use different extracts you can really have fun, try it with rum extract or hell, try it with rum! I used mint and upped it to 1 tsp.. muwahaha)
  • 1 lb of milk chocolate (use the good stuff, seriously do not use chips, use real milk chocolate made for cooking)
  • ½ white chocolate (well since this is not real chocolate the chips or white bark is fine).
Instructions
  1. Using a food processor, grind cookies to a fine powder.
  2. With a mixer, blend cookie powder, cream cheese and vanilla extract until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese).
  3. Roll into small balls and place on wax-lined cookie sheet.
  4. Refrigerate for 45 minutes.
  5. Line two cookie sheets with wax paper.
  6. In double-boiler, melt milk chocolate.
  7. Dip balls and coat thoroughly.
  8. With slotted spoon, lift balls out of chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off.
  9. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet.
  10. In separate double boiler, melt white chocolate.
  11. Using a fork, drizzle white chocolate over balls.
  12. Let cool.
  13. Store in airtight container, in refrigerator.
Notes
These are so easy to make and so easy to eat!
