Oreo Truffles

I could quite possibly sit down with this little bowl of oreo truffles and pop one after another into my mouth until I'm left holding just the empty bowl. Clearly I've already gotten a start by eating half of one! Mentally told myself that I had to eat one just to show all of you the inside

The best part about these is that it only takes three ingredients! One package of oreos, eight ounces cream cheese, and Baker's white chocolate candy coating (probably will need two boxes). Definitely won't break the pocketbook.

Crush the oreos using a food processor or a blender. Way easier than using a rolling pin or hammer. Mix in the cream cheese until well blended. Form into one inch balls and place on a wax-paper lined baking sheet. Place in the freezer for about an hour or until firm.

Now the tricky part, dipping them in the candy coating and trying to get the nice smooth finish! After trying several different kitchen utensils and gadgets, I found a fork to be the best tool. Drop the oreo ball into the white chocolate and cover completely. Fish out the oreo ball with the fork and tap off any excess chocolate. Very carefully slide the truffle off of the fork onto a wax-paper lined baking sheet. Place in the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes to harden.

It could fun to dress them up a little with a drizzle of chocolate over the top or a sprinkle of crushed oreos. Might have to try this next time!
