This is the easiest "truffle" to make. If I can do it, it has to be easy! These make great homemade gifts. And are easy to have on hand for those family gatherings. You won't believe how delicious these wannabe chocolate truffles are until you make some, or receive some from someone special (That's IF they divulge their secret!)
Ingredients
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz.) Oreos (or some reasonable facsimile thereof)
  • 2 pkg. (8 squares each) Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted
Instructions
  1. Set aside 5 Oreos and throw the rest in a food processor until they are finely crumbled.
  2. Thoroughly mix cookie crumbs with cream cheese.
  3. Form crumb-and-cream-cheese mixture into balls, approximately 1-inch across each and place onto a cookie sheet that has been lined with wax paper.
  4. For best results, pop the formed mixture into the fridge for at least 15 minutes to chill while you complete the next step.
  5. Melt the chocolate. I like to melt it in the microwave. Just use a microwave safe bowl and cook 30 seconds at a time until melted. But use your preferred method.
  6. Remove pot from heat (if you're using a pot).
  7. Coat previously formed balls with chocolate and return to the lined cookie sheet.
  8. Throw the remaining 5 cookies into the food processor until they are finely crumbled.
  9. Sprinkle some of those crumbs on top of the (still wet) truffles.
  10. Refrigerate for one hour.
You are done! You are now free to package, freeze, eat, and enjoy!
Options: Swap out regular Oreos for Golden Oreos (semi-sweet chocolate for white chocolate, if you like white chocolate). You will end up with a cheesecake-like truffle. Or try something you "think" might be good. Experimentation is how we get all these new recipes.
