Oreo Truffles

I love being in the kitchen; cooking, baking, eating - singing/dancing with my boys! Life is fun!

Truffles are one of my all time favortie treats, and I had forgotten about these oreo truffles - I made them a LONG time ago - but I was re-introduced to them a few weeks ago at a christening for a friends son, and then the following week again at the same friends birthday - his girlfriend made them.

This weekend I was craving some - so I headed to the store this mornig with Julien to pick up the ingredients.  They are VERY simple to make, and don't take TOO much time

1 package of oreo cookies
1 package philadelphia cream cheese
chocolate for melting

set aside approx 8 cookies

place the rest in a blender or food processor and pulse until they are fine crumbs
mix together with the softened cream cheese in a bowl (I used a hand mixer for this - but you could probably do it by hand)
chill for an hour
roll into balls and place on a lined cookie sheet/baking tray
re-chill the formed truffles

melt the chocolate (I used white chocolate)
dip the rolled balls in the chocolate, and place back on the lined sheet
drizzle with melted milk/dark chocolate
garnish with cookie pieces from the reserved cookies if you wish

The next time I make them, I am going to make truffle pops - by using sucker sticks
