i don't know where i found out about this recipe... i think it was on pinterest. but once i saw it, i couldn't get it out of my head...
things are about to get crazy up in here. we are about to dive into the wonderful world of oreo truffles, friends. get yourself prepared.
1 package (18 oz.) Oreo cookies, crushed into small pieces
1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened
White or Chocolate melts for dipping
(i used chocolate chips, mostly because i don't know where to conveniently find candy melts in my neighborhood.)
♥ Mix crushed Oreos and cream cheese until well-combined.
♥ Either use a food processor or a ziplock and blend with your hands.
♥ Roll into 1-inch balls and place on baking sheet or tray.
♥ Refrigerate until firm, 3-4 hours (or stick in the freezer for about an hour).
♥ Dip Oreo balls into chocolate and place onto waxed paper to harden.
♥ Chill and serve cold or room temperature. Makes about 40 truffles.
Now, I have a secret for you...
I want to tell you how awesome they were...
but the truth is, I was a mite disappointed with these. They were REALLY really chocolate-y, when I thought they were going to be more Oreo-y. It could've been because I used actual chocolate to coat them, rather than candy melts.
I think when it comes down to it, I'm much more of a cake person, rather than a candy person (unless the candy in question is caramel, toffee, or peanut butter-related.) All the more reason to hunt down some candy melts and make me some cake pops.
Bottom line. If you are a chocolate-aholic... if you are a cacao FIEND... if you *REALLY* really like can't live without loads and loads of chocolate in you life... make these asap.
