Oreo Truffle Balls


As promised here is the recipe for the Oreo Truffle Balls I made over the weekend. These were insanely good and so easy to make! I think they would be adorable to serve at a shower or birthday party. Although beware this is what happens when a hungry baby gets his hands on the Oreo balls.


My oreo balls don't look quite as pretty as the above picture but I can assure you they tasted amaze.



OREO TRUFFLE BALLS


1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg. (16.6 oz.) OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 4-1/4 cups), divided
2 pkg. (8 squares each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted (i used mini chocolate chips)

MIX cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until well blended. (I crushed the oreos in my food processor and then blended in the cream cheese)

SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Refrigerate about 30 minutes.
Dip in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.

REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.


**The original recipe I used called for 2 tablespoons of Crisco melted in with the chocolate chips. I did this in a double broiler. All the recipes I found online didn't call for Crisco, so make as you like. You could also use white chocolate instead if you prefer.**
