Oreo Cookie Truffles!…

Posted Dec 05 2012 6:51am

Hi there!  Happy Wednesday!  I can hardly believe that it’s Wednesday already.  I guess being off on Friday and on Monday make the week go by so quickly.  I was literally swamped with work yesterday.  I barely got up from my desk.  At least the day went by fast because I was so busy. I was able to accomplish everything that I needed to which is always a good thing in my opinion.  The one thing this week that Mike and I didn’t get a chance to do was go food shopping.  Luckily, we had some food in the house to get us through a few days but we really reached a point yesterday where we were both running out of things to bring to work for lunch.

So when Mike got home from work, we ventured to the supermarket to stock up on some things that we needed.  It was so empty in the store which made Mike happy.  He hates going to the supermarket but I think he is slowly learning not to hate it so much when he see’s how much money we save by me couponing.  Although, he did try to sneak a $5 loaf of bread past me!  $5 for a loaf of bread?!  I would NEVER pay that much money unless I was getting it from a gourmet bakery.  He definitely went back to find a cheaper loaf of bread and I think he was happy once he saw that we didn’t end up paying that much money for one loaf.  I’m sorry but that is just way too much money to spend in my opinion!

Once we got home, I threw a frozen pizza into the oven and roasted some veggies and smiley face fries.

I love those smiley face fries.  There is something about them that I just absolutely love!  I cannot get enough of them.

So yesterday when I posted about Mike’s birthday celebrations, I mentioned that I made Oreo Cookie Truffles.  I never posted the recipe though.  You seriously need to make these!  It’s the perfect treat to bring with you to a holiday party.  It’s very impressive and it’s not that difficult to make!  I thought it was going to be much harder than it was.  It is a little time-consuming but it’s worth it in the end.

Oreo Cookie Truffles

Ingredients:

1 package of double- stuffed Oreo cookies (doesn’t have to be the name brand, generic will work fine too)

1  8oz. package of low-fat cream cheese

1-2 packages of chocolate to melt (either chocolate chips or baking chocolates that you can get from the craft store)

Directions:

Set aside 6 Oreo’s to crush for the truffle topping.  Put the rest of the package of the Oreo cookies into a food processor or crush in a ziploc bag with a rolling-pin until finely crushed.

Pour the Oreo crumbs in to a large bowl with the cream cheese.  Mix the cream cheese and the Oreo cookies until they are well blended and you don’t see the white from the cream cheese anymore.  The best way to do this is to use your hands.

Put foil on a baking sheet, and roll the Oreo & cream cheese mixture into 1-inch balls.  Place on the foil-lined baking sheet.  When you have made all of the balls, place into the refrigerator or freezer for at least 15 minutes or until they are formed and hardened.

In the meantime, start melting your chocolate in a double broiler on the stove.  Merely bring a pot of water to boil and place a pyrex bowl on top of cover the pot.  Place the chocolate inside the pyrex bowl and once the water is boiling, turn it off.  The chocolate will begin to melt.

Take the truffles out of the refrigerator or freezer and coat in the chocolate using two spoons and shake the excess chocolate off.  When completely coated, place back on the baking sheet.  Continue to do this for all the truffles.  Take the 6 Oreos that you have crushed separately and sprinkle some crumbs on top of the truffles.  Place in the freezer or refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.  Enjoy!

These are absolutely delicious!  I promise you that your guests or even yourself will love them!  I know that Mike and I love them.  They truly look impressive and as you can see, they aren’t that difficult to make.  The longest part is waiting for them to harden and dipping them in chocolate.  Other than that, it’s easy as pie!  Have you ever made truffles or cake pops before?  What are your favorite kind to make?  Let me know if you decide to try your hand at making them!  I’m hoping to try making another kind towards the end of this week to bring to a party!

Have a great Wednesday!
