RECIPE: Oreo Truffles
Figured I'd post this for all the newcomers and for those of us who can't seem to remember a blessed thing (yes, I have begun THAT journey).
So simple that the kids could take over once the 'dough' is made.
I've purchased candy boxes and truffles cups from the craft store. Wrapped in gold ribbon they make a pretty and thoughtful gift for colleagues and hostesses.
1 package Oreo cookies
1 8 oz block cream cheese
Melting chocolate (I dip in milk chocolate and then drizzle white chocolate as a decoration)
Crushed nuts, sprinkles, whatever.
In a food processor, process the Oreo until fine. add cream cheese and process until the 'dough' is uniformly colored with no traces of white lumps from the cream cheese.
You can chill the dough for 30 minutes but it is not necessary. Working quickly (or they start melting sort of) roll into small balls (smaller than a golf ball).
Dip into melted chocolate, then drizzle with white or other colored chocolate and place on wax-lined cookie sheet. You can also roll the dipped balls in crushed nuts or whatever suits your fancy.
