Oreo Truffles

As I mentioned in another post, I went to the grocery store the other day and bought a ton of really healthy/wonderful foods- and a bag of oreos.  Sam has been asking for oreo truffles for a while now, so I decided to surprise him :)
Originally there were like 25 of these bad boys, but I sent a bag of them with Sam to his group meeting (they're going to be working for a loooong time today so I figured they could use the treat to get them through it).  This was the last long oreo truffle, and it's a good thing I remembered to take a picture before I ate it!
yeah baby!

Oreo Truffles
1 (16oz) package of oreos
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
2 (8 oz) packages of semi-sweet Baker's chocolate

Crush 9 cookies in a food processor, and save for later use.
Crush remaining cookies; place in a medium sized bowl.  Add cream cheese and mix until well blended.  Form into bite-sized balls.  Melt chocolate, then dip cookie balls in chocolate.  Place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and garnish with extra cookie crumbs.  Place in fridge until hardened (about 1 hour).  Store in fridge in a sealed container.

(Apparently "bite sized" means you get 42 balls out of it.  I made about 25, so what does that say about the size of my bites?)


  1. Oh wow! These look amazing! Gonna try to make them tonight

  2. Oh my goodness! Those look SO yummy! I may have to make them sometime I think they won't kill me. Mmmmm.
