Oh my!

So today's lesson will be about Oreo Truffles.  You thought the mint cool whip pie I last posted about was easy?  Then try these little suckers.  

What you'll need:

  • 1 package Oreo cookies (If you feel the need, you can even do Fat Free Oreos.  Even though I have no clue why those even exist....but that's another post)
  • 1 8oz package cream cheese (soft)
  • white almond bark or white chocolate
First step is to crush the Oreos.  You can either do this with a food processor or put the cookies in a plastic bag and let out some rage.  Dump the cookie crumbs into a big bowl.  

Cut the cream cheese into chunks and add to the cookie crumbs. WARNING:  This next step requires you to get messy.  It's me. With your hands, combine the cream cheese and Oreo crumbs.  Roll the mixture into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Once the entire mixture is rolled, place the baking sheet into the fridge.  Leave them there for about an hour to harden. 

Once you are ready, melt some almond bark or chocolate.   You can either use a Bain marie or the microwave.  Just read the instructions on the back of the package.  Dunk the Oreo balls into the white chocolate and place back on the baking sheet.  Return to the fridge when done.  Once the white chocolate hardens, you can enjoy.  

Just try not to overindulge on these!!
