Easy Oreo Truffles

Contributed by Carrie-Nell Jessop

1 package cream cheese, softened

1 package of Oreo cookies

1 box Baker’s Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate

… 

– Set aside 6 cookies, crush coarsley for use later as topping

– Put the rest of the package of Oreos in a ziplock bag and crush finely (I use a rolling pin)

– In a large bowl, combine the crushed cookies (minus the ones reserved for the topping) with the softened cream cheese. Just mash it all together until it becomes a smooth paste-like blob. 🙂

– Roll into 1-inch balls

– Melt entire box of Baker’s chocolate (however you wish)

– Dip the balls in the melted chocolate (I use 2 forks to roll it around and lift it out) then deposit onto parchment or wax paper-lined cookie sheet

– Sprinkle a little of the reserved topping on top of each truffle

– Refrigerate at least an hour or so to let everything harden

(additional notes: makes about 20-30, they freeze well, and you can also dip in white chocolate and drizzle the semi sweet over the top…oh yum!!!)
