Oreo Truffles

I got this recipe from my friend, Melissa. She mentioned them in passing one day and they sounded so delicious and I knew I wanted to make them at some point. I'd hoped to make them for Thanksgiving, but never got around to it. So Carson and I made up a batch of them yesterday afternoon. These are time consuming to make, but they're easy and fun. And they taste absolutely delicious! I used all-natural chocolate sandwich cookies that I found at Whole Foods - made with wheat flour and no HFCS!

Oreo Truffles

1 box Oreos, or other chocolate sandwich cookie
1 brick cream cheese
4 bars Ghiradelli chocolate (I used 2 milk choc. and 2 semisweet choc. and melted them together)

Crush up the Oreos in a large zippered plastic bag. I used my rolling pin. Pour the crushed Oreos into the bowl of your stand mixer. Drop in the brick of cream cheese. Mix on low speed until incorporated. Use a small cookie scoop to drop rounded balls of the cookie/cream cheese mixture onto a baking sheet. If you let your cream cheese come to room temp. first to soften, you'll want to put the balls in the fridge to cool down so they stay together better.

Meanwhile, melt chocolate in a glass bowl fitted over a pan with boiling water on the stovetop. Drop balls of cookie/cream cheese into the melted chocolate. Remove and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Let cool completely until chocolate has hardened. Enjoy!
