Oreo Truffles

Oh dear! I'm not sure how I forgot to blog about these sweet truffles!  I made them along with chocolate covered strawberries for a wedding shower which was approximately 5 months ago I think!  That was during the 6 months of radio, I mean internet, silence the neighborjulia blog observed in memorial of my remaining sanity (which was lost when the twins were born!).

I stole this recipe from my sister/friends Rachel and Maria via facebook.  Two awesome ladies that I grew up next door to in the great state of Washington. I carefully intercepted said recipe and I'm now sharing it with the world! (The world being the 5 of you who still check this blog).  

Now a word of caution. while these are extremely delicious and easy to throw together (as mentioned above) I do have to admit there was a moment where I was mixing crushed Oreos together with cream cheese that I felt a little guilty about what I was about to eat...but it soon passed and then I was dippin' those suckers in chocolate and rainbow sprinkles!  Also, beware these are super duper or two will do ya!  And the recipe makes a big batch so you'll have plenty to share!


Oreo Truffles
1 package oreos, crushed to fine crumbs
1 8 oz package cream cheese softened
melting chocolate

To crush the oreos I placed them in a gallon sized ziploc bag and rolled over it with a rolling pin.  Shake the bag and repeat until the oreos are in fine crumbs. 
Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper. 
Mix crushed Oreos and cream cheese in a medium sized bowl. Roll into bite-size balls (mine were about 1 in).  Dip in melted chocolate and set on wax paper cookie sheet.  You can decorate with melted white chocolate drizzled on top or dip them rainbow sprinkles (as pictured) Rachel also suggested crushed peppermint candies for a Christmas treat. Refrigerate for 1 hour to set. Yum!

  1. I am one of the five who still read this blog! You always have good stuff to share, and plus, I really like you. :-)

    I have seen these on Pinterest (minus rainbow sprinkles! Fun!) but had always put off making them ... now that I know how simple they are, though, all bets are off. :-)
