I have been a terrible blogger lately! So today, I am going to try my best to do a bunch of updates! I made these Oreo truffles around Christmas time (yes today is Valentine’s day… I told you it’s been a while!). They were a GIGANTIC hit. Everyone thought I had store bought them, and they were seriously impressed. I was almost ashamed to admit how super easy they were to make! I also made a version that were red velvet with white chocolate, but I somehow forgot to take pics! I  will include both recipes!!! The original recipe for the oreo truffles is from Kraft!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz.) OREO Cookies, finely crushed, divided
  • 1 pkg.  (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened ( I used the 1/3 fat)
  • 2 pkg. (8 squares each) BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted

Directions:

  1. Mix 3 cups of the cookie crumbs and the cream cheese until well blended. Shape into (1-inch) balls. Supposedly you can make 42… I didn’t end up with nearly that many!
  2. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.
  3. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Store any leftover truffles in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

  2. Mix with cream cheese frosting
  3. Shape into 1 inch balls and place onto baking sheet.
  4. Chill for several hours until firm ( IMPORTANT! I skipped this and tried dipping them right away… they were SO much harder to do then the Oreos!)
