We went to a little party the other night. I took these:
They were a hit.
I think this recipe is originally from Kraft, but there are a bunch of variations out there. Just google the name, and you’ll see for yourself. Or, save yourself the time and just trust me. But there are a lot out there!
The great thing about these is that they’re super easy and so, SO tasty. After dipping in chocolate you can sprinkle them with crushed Oreos, drizzle with melted chocolate, or pull out those cute holiday sprinkles and give a few shakes. Don’t you think they’d be cute in a little candy box (go to your local craft store) for Valentine’s Day? (It’s true, I’m already thinking about the next ‘baking worthy’ holiday!
If you’ve got an extra box of the already sold out Peppermint Joe Joe’s hanging around send them to me, I’m thinking they would be super good too!
1 package Oreo cookies
1 8oz. package cream cheese, softened
chocolate bark or chocolate candy melts
Crush all but 7 Oreos. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together. Stir in the softened cream cheese.
You can crush the remaining 7 and sprinkle the crumbs on top after you’ve dipped the Oreo balls, or, if you’re like me, just eat them as you work! Using the whole package of Oreos will make the mixture just a bit too dry.
Roll the mixture into 1-inch 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.
Add any decoration to the top and refrigerate. This recipe should make about 3 dozen truffles.
