I don't have a food processor. Would the commercially produced Oreo crumbs work?

Ann,
They firm up in the fridge, which I prefer. At room temp they are very soft, and yes, they are very moist.

Albergen,
Although I have never seen them, I imagine the ready-made crumbs are not as fine as they should be for this recipe. The crumbs really need to be made into a powder for best results. Perhaps you can pound them witha mallet to get them a little finer. Let us know how that works out for you.

I brought these into work today and had a number of requests for the recipe. Folks seem to like them as much as we do.

Sue

Oreo Truffles are delicious! I bought some this year at a school bake sale. It was the first I'd ever heard of them.
