Oreo Truffles

These truffles are super easy and delicious. If you like a certain cookie flavor, use your favorite It makes no difference.  One piece of advice is to make sure you chill the dough for at least 15 minutes before rolling.  And then chill them in the freezer again to help make it easier to dip in chocolate.

Remove cookies from the package and finely chop. (The best way is to put them in a chopper or food processor, but a blender works well, too.) Place the now cookie crumbs in a large bowl.  20140224-122436.jpg

Remove room-temperature cream cheese from the foil and microwave for 20 seconds to make it extra creamy and easier to work with. Combine the cream cheese with the cookie crumbs and stir till well combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Remove the bowl from the fridge and cover a cookie sheet with wax paper. Form the mixture into small balls (a little smaller than a gum ball) and place on the wax paper. Fill the cookie sheet with the balls and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to become firm. While the pan is in the freezer, fill a saucepan about 1/3 full of water and heat on the stove top on medium-high. As the water begins to boil, place a glass bowl over the sauce pan and place three squares of Almond bark in the bowl to melt. (This process is called double boiling and works great to melt chocolate!)

Once the chocolate is melted, begin adding the little balls to the chocolate and coating each one all around. Place the balls back on the wax paper to cool and dry. 20140224-122503.jpg

Drizzle with melted white chocolate, add sprinkles or chopped pecans, or leave them as they are! Place the prepared truffles in the fridge to keep them cool. Keep the truffles refrigerated till you need them. Enjoy!
