Oreo Truffles: Fun for Everyone

I went though some old pictures of mine and found some great pictures of yummy oreo truffles! I'll post the recipe here along with some pictures. They take a little bit of time dipping in the chocolate but it's fun and kids can help. I like to swirl white & milk chocolate across the already-dipped truffles. Also, I suggest using two spoons or forks to roll the truffles in the melted chocolate, and then place on foil or wax paper to harden in the refrigerator.

I employed my neices and nephew on Christmas. Yay for child labor! Muahah

Oreo Balls RecipeIngredients:

1 Package regular Oreos (not double stuff), FINELY CRUSHED!
8 oz cream cheese (room temperature is easier to work with)
1 bag dark, milk, or white chocolate or almond bark

Directions:

Mix crushed oreo's with cream cheese in a large bown until thoroughly incorporated. Roll into small balls, roughly 1 inch in diameter. Place on wax paper or foil and chill. Once the balls are chilled, melt the chocolate.

I use the microwave to melt it but it can be difficult. If you microwave for too long the chocolate will burn and harden. In my microwave I melt the chocolate in a glass microwave-proof bowl for 30 seconds, and then at 10 second intervals until it's at a smooth consistency when stirred.

Roll the oreo balls around in the chocolate and place on the foil or wax paper. If you want to do stripey or swirly patterns on the truffles, use a different type of chocolate and a spoon to swirl (if you made white chocolate truffles, use dark or milk chocolate for pattern, etc.)

Refrigerate and VOILA!
