My first experience with the Oreo Truffle was while teaching in Kentucky. Our PTA president made these one time as a treat for all the teachers at a luncheon. Everyone wanted the recipe from her. I was shocked to find out that these delicious little candies only had a total of 3 ingredients! They are so good, so easy, and so difficult looking! Keep in mind, that I am NOT an expert candy dipper. Some of mine look very pretty, but as these pictures show I have some that are a little sloppy looking. No matter how they look, your family & guests will LOVE them!
- 1 package Oreo cookies
- 1 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
- Good quality chocolate for dipping (may be white or dark)
Crush Oreo cookies into crumbs. (I like a food processor for this).
Thoroughly mix cookies with cream cheese.
Form into balls (about 1 inch diameter).
Chill or freeze balls until very firm.
Melt dipping chocolate in microwave.
Dip cookie balls into chocolate.
To make decorative, I like to dip a whisk into an opposite color chocolate and drizzle over each truffle.
