Oreo/Cream Cheese Truffles

These little treats are easy to whip up and ohhh... so good. The recipe calls for one package (18 ounce) of Oreo cookies (We prefer the Double Stuff), 8 ounces softened cream cheese and 16 ounces semi-sweet or milk chocolate (melted). This makes around 42 truffles, approx. 1 inch each.

Line a baking sheet with wax paper, crush up the cookies, mix 3 cups of the crushed cookies with the cream cheese, roll/shape the mix into balls, dip the balls into the melted chocolate. (You can do this with your hands, a regular fork or a candy dipping fork.) Place the balls onto your sheet, sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs, refrigerate for one hour and then enjoy!

You can store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge.

My favorite industrial processed food!

Crushing the cookies. We use a cutting board, Ziploc gallon freezer bag and a meat tenderizer mallet. The kids love participating in this step the most.

The finished product.

Melted chocolate... We use the stove top, double boiler method. We prefer this to the microwave as the chocolate doesn't get as hot. Becareful when dipping- the chocolate can burn you. I recommend using a dipping fork.
