Oreo Truffles

Yesterday at about 2PM Blaine informed me that he was in charge of taking dessert to a church meeting for about 40 people. Extra awesome was the fact that I had been at the store the day before and bought ingredients for delicious Andes Mint Cookies to take to a dinner party I was going to, but I didn't have enough to make the cookies for that many people. Compound this with the fact that we don't shop on Sundays. Luckily the day before I had also picked up a package or oreos to try a new dessert, oreo truffles. So we decided to make those for the church function since they seemed quick and easy. And they were quick and easy, and though I wasn't at the meeting, Blaine says they were very well received! I tried some when he got home and yep, they were delicious! This would be something that it would be easy to keep the ingredients on hand for, in case your husband springs a fun surprise on you like mine did on me yesterday : )

recipe from:

1 pkg. Oreos
8 oz. cream cheese
melting chocolates (or chocolate chips)
  1. Crush the Oreos pretty fine and save 1/3 or so out of the bowl.
  2. Soften the cream cheese and mix the two together until they form an ugly dough.
  3. Roll them into balls and put them in the fridge for 30 minutes or so.
  4. Melt a bag of melting chocolates (or chocolate chips, but I find the melting chips so much easier to use and you can do pretty colors!) - I used almond bark
  5. Roll the balls in the choc. and top with a few of the leftover Oreo crumbs and then put them in the *fridge until ready to serve.

These were definitely well received at the training! I even told my hubby to grab a few extra- he was too shy (sad for me)

Thanks for sharing the recipe!
