Easy Oreo Truffles

From the cookie exchange






















The best way to describe these treats are simple and delicious. They contain three ingredients and take moments to make. I saw these online Bakerella's site and thought to send the link to my friend Cat. She made them for the cookie exchange and they were a hit! To enhance the holiday theme she used mint Oreos which really made them special. I definitely recommend these to anybody who loves Oreos or Cakeballs. They really could not be any easier so they are great for a beginner cook. My one tip would be to not use white chcolate chips to coat these if you have not worked with it before; it is much easier to use chocolate bark.

Oreo Truffles
made by Catherine Feldtmose, recipe from Bakerella

1 package oreo cookies (divided… use cookie including the cream center)
1 8oz. package cream cheese, softened
white chocolate bark (milk or dark chocolate woulf also be good)

Finely crush 7 cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency. Reserve for later. Crush remaining cookies and stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together. Roll the mixture into 1" balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. Melt chocolate as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry. You can sprinkle the tops with the 7 crushed cookies for decoration (Cat used red and green sprinkes). Once dry, refrigerate and enjoy!
