Oreo Truffles

One of the blogs that I enjoy a lot is Bakerella, I discovered her site a long time ago when I was looking into red velvet cake, she had a recipe on her blog for Red Velvet Cake Balls which looked so different that I added her to my rss reader and follow her posts all the time.
One of those posts was a recipe for Oreo Truffles, which uses ingredients that are a little more over the counter here in Holland. except for the white chocolate bark that my friend in the US sent to me, thanks K.!!!

I made only half a recipe, with all the TWD recipes and good food aound here, 36 Oreo Truffles isn't a thing I want to have in the fridge, calling my name every time I open the door :-)

The recipe is fairly easy, the tricky thing is to get a nice coating of bark on the balls, which I got the hang of in the end.

The truffles are very rich, I might make them smaller next time, I would also experiment a bit with them, like adding a splash of Cointreau orange liquor to the oreo/creamcheese mixture.

Thanks Bakerella for the great ideas on your blog and for this great recipe!

Oreo Truffles
1 package oreo cookies (divided… use cookie including the cream center)
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
white chocolate bark

1. Finely crush 7 cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency. Reserve for later.
2. Crush remaining cookies and stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
3. Roll the mixture into 1" balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.
4. 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.
5. Once dry, refrigerate and enjoy!

These are indeed yummy and OH so addictive. Good news is they freeze VERY well though that does not keep me from returning to the freezer over and over (and over again) to sneak one. I don't know about where you are at but where I live there are several different kinds of oreo like mint and coffee filled. I have also done different extracts and Grand Manier in mine. I often just use melted Chocolate chips which can also be found in a variety of flavors (especially around the holidays). But my favorite combination is plain oreos/bitter-sweet chocolate.
My first time visiting your Blog and look foward to returning!

These look sinful. I will have to try them.

Thanks for the tip about the vanilla extract. I love getting all the help I can.
