Oreo Truffles

These could be a very popular treat for parties all throughout the year, but I only seem to remember to make them around the holidays!  I always manage to make a mess when making them, but it is worth it!

OREO TRUFFLES

Ingredients

1 package Oreo cookies, finely crushed using a food processor, divided

1 package {8 oz.} cream cheese, softened

2 packages {8 oz. each} Semi-Sweet Baker’s Chocolate, melted {I only used 1 and a half packages and it was just enough.}

Directions

Mix 3 cups of the cookie crumbs and the cream cheese until well blended. Shape into 42 (1-inch) balls. {I definitely had less than 42 balls, but I made them pretty large.  I would guess I had around 30-35?   I placed each ball on 2 parchment lined baking sheets and refrigerated for a few minutes to firm them up before dipping.}

Dip or drop balls in bowl of melted chocolate, roll to coat, lift with 2 forks allowing the excess chocolate to drain off, place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. (Any leftover melted chocolate can be stored in tightly covered container at room temperature and saved for another use.) Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.

Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Store any leftover truffles in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

Variation – Sprinkle truffles with colored sugar or sprinkles in addition to or in place of the cookie crumbs.
