Oreo Truffles

Christmas would not be Christmas in our house without these Oreo Truffles!
Not only are they one of our favorite treats, but they are also super simple to make!

We served these a few years ago as favors at our wedding reception, and we returned from our honeymoon to loads of messages asking, What is the recipe for those thingy-ma-bobs you served at the wedding?! I have to know!.

They are amazing, and we love sharing them with others. I sure wish I could take credit for this recipe, but a friend actually passed it along to me. If you are looking for one last special holiday treat to serve or gift to others, these would be perfect!

Here's how to get started:

Ingredients:

One package of Oreos
One 8 oz. block of cream cheese
1/2 of a block of Almond Bark
Toppings of your choice - We used crushed Andes Mints.

Note: We usually make 2-4 batches. I would highly suggest that you do the same. *smile*


Step 1: Crush one package of Oreos up in a food processor.

Step 2: Begin melting your Almond Bark (on low heat). Add a little oil for smoothness~

Step 3: Mix an 8 oz. block of cream cheese in with one package of crushed oreos.

Step 4: Roll mixture into small, truffle-size balls. (I would then suggest placing them in the freezer for a couple of hours just to give them a chance to set up - This makes dipping them in the chocolate a whole lot easier.)


Step 5: Dip each ball into the melted Almond Bark.

Step 6: Immediately top your truffles with anything you like. We typically use crushed Andes mints - a mixture of both red and green. See that cracked truffle back there? That's the first one I ate!
*We store these in the fridge/freezer until it's time to share~

Friends have tweeked this recipe, and here are a few yummy things they have tried:
- white Almond Bark instead of milk chocolate
- Nutter Butter cookies instead of Oreos
- crushed peppermint for the topping instead of Andes mints

The options are endless, folks! Enjoy!

Merry Christmas, everyone!
