I can't believe it has taken me this long to share this recipe with you. I do apologize, because these are beyond amazing. They are incredibly simple to make, but oh so tasty. I mean really, what can wrong with anything involving oreos? They are a creamy, chocolately amazingness. And it is almost impossible to only eat just one.
I make these almost every Christmas for my husband's family. They are always a big hit. I always have to save myself out one or two so I can indulge. These little bites of heaven would be welcome at any party, or just in your fridge for yourself!
Yield: roughly 45 truffles
36 Oreo cookies, finely crushed
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
16 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the cookie crumbs and cream cheese until well blended.
Scoop the cookie crumb mixture into 1-inch balls. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Use all of the cookie crumb mixture. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, roughly chop the semi-sweet chocolate. Place in a bowl, set over a pot with barely simmering water. Stir the chocolate until melted.
Dip the chilled truffles into the melted chocolate, one or two at a time. Make sure the truffles are well coated with the chocolate. Place the dipped truffles back onto the baking sheet. Repeat until each truffle is coated.
Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator and chill for 1 hour, or until the truffles are firm to the touch. Serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator in an air tight container for up to 1 week.
