I mentioned Oreo Truffles in my previous post and Shannon suggested I post the recipe. I wish I could claim the recipe as my own, but it’s from Kraft Foods. I first tasted these truffles at a baby shower for a friend – you can’t eat just one, they are so good! You can expermint with the different varieties of Oreo cookies, too, like Mint Oreo. Delicious! (FYI: This is not the type of treat that can be made ahead and frozen, but they are so easy to make and everyone loves them. )
Do you have a favorite cookie or holiday treat that you would be willing to share? Post a comment or a link to your blog below with your recipe.
Easy Oreo Truffles
(Yield: about 42 truffles)
1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz.) OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, finely crushed, divided
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
2 pkg. (8 squares each) Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted
MIX 3 cups of the cookie crumbs and the cream cheese until well blended. Shape into 42 (1-inch) balls.
DIP balls in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. (Tip: Use two forks and allow the excess chocolate to drip off before placing the truffle on the wax paper.) Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm. Store any leftover truffles in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
**Update 12/6/2008: I just read online that these treats do freeze well…I guess I will give it a try and find out!
