Today I am sharing one of my very favorite desserts to make at Christmas, OREO truffles. I know most people have probably tried these already, but if you haven’t you NEED to make these, soon! They are quite simple to make and only require 3 ingredients. Every time I take these somewhere they vanish almost immediately.
- 1 package Oreo cookies
- 1 8oz pack of softened cream cheese
- 24 oz of white chocolate chips or one pack of almond bark
First, you want to finely crush your cookies. I finely crushed mine in a food processor but you can use a large ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Crush the cookies as they are, do not remove the creme centers.
Beat your softened cream cheese with a mixer, then slowly add your crushed cookies 1 cup at a time.
Once the cookies and cream cheese are mixed together well, form 1 inch balls and place on wax paper. I used aluminum foil since I didn’t have wax paper, it worked pretty well. You should have about 50 Oreo truffles once you’re finished. Place them in the freezer for 20-30 min.
I used about 1 3/4 bags of white chocolate chips. Melt your chocolate OR almond bark in the microwave or on your stove-top with a double-boiler per the instructions on the package. *Be careful to not burn the white chocolate if you’re using the microwave. Once the chocolate is melted take your Oreo balls out of the freezer and dip in the chocolate, then place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Store your truffles in the refrigerator in an air tight container since the contain cream cheese.
