I wish I could say this was my recipe but I found the recipe on Judy’s blog at: http://judyscraftroom.blogspot.com. I love trying new recipes and this one rocks. Thanks Judy for sharing this one. I plan on surprizing my family this Valentine's Day with this Yummy!!!!
This recipe makes about 4 dozen of the most luscious dessert I have tried in a long time.
Easy Oreo Truffles
1- Large bag of chocolate Oreo cookies
1- 8 oz package of Cream Cheese
Chocolate wafers (Milk and white chocolate)
Crush the cookies in your food processor until they are fine crumbs. (Reserving a couple of tablespoons for the topping)
Add block of cream cheese, to cookie crumbs and pulse until it's well blended. At this point I usually put it into the fridge for 30 minutes or so...just so it's chilled.
Roll the mixture into 1" balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet, place back in fridge until chilled again.
Melt chocolate wafers in a microwave bowl, drop truffle into chocolate and make sure it's well covered. Remove the truffle from chocolate with 2 forks and place on wax paper....and sprinkle with chocolate crumbs or pink salt. Then keep in the fridge until you are ready to serve...that's it....sooo yummy!
To make the salt, I used coarse salt...like the kind I use for homemade pretzels. Put some salt in a baggie and add a few drops of red food coloring. Sprinkle on chocolate covered truffles!
You can also melt chocolate in a baggie and pierce on end of the baggie with a toothpick and drizzle white chocolate on dark truffles or dark chocolate on white truffles.
I bet you can't eat just one!! Enjoy!!
