When I first saw this recipe I was hooked..I mean come on, look at that picture!! Well...don't let the picture fool you...yes they still tasted good, but by no means did they look that pretty. Ask my mom. She helped me. It was a tedious preparation, mainly the "forming the cream cheese and Oreo crumbs together" part...and my fingers and hands looked so gross after! Anyways...my mom and I have always battled with melting chocolate, but we finally got it down. Although our Oreo balls were covered in chocolate..they just didn't look as pretty as the picture (do they ever?) But they were still very good and perfect size to just pop in your mouth!
If you can make these and get a picture like this one, I will switch out this picture and use yours! Good luck!
Makes approximately 4 dozen truffles
1. Set aside 5 Oreos and throw the rest in a food processor until they are finely crumbled
2. Thoroughly mix cookie crumbs with cream cheese.
3. Form crumb-and-cream-cheese mixture into balls, approximately 1-inch across each (but don't worry too much about being exact here. They will come out delicious no matter the size!) and place onto a cookie sheet that has previously been lined with wax paper.
4. For best results, pop the formed mixture into the fridge for at least 15 minutes to chill while you complete the next step. If you really don't have the time, the truffles will still taste delicious (so don't worry!), but they will be more difficult to handle and some of the coating with mix with the filling.
5. Melt the chocolate. (I don't recommend microwave. Use a double broiler if you can. Or do what my mom and I do--we boil hot water on the stove and put a glass bowl on top of the pot and throw the chocolate chunks into the bowl and it melts!)
6. Remove pot from heat.
7. Coat previously formed balls with chocolate and return to the lined cookie sheet.
8. Throw the remaining 5 cookies into the food processor.
9. Sprinkle some of those crumbs on top of the (still wet) truffles. (I didn't do this part because my chocolate was already dry)
10. Refrigerate for one hour.
Stressed is Desserts spelled backwards...
Desserts and I are like peanut butter and jelly, salt and pepper, bacon and eggs....we just go so well together. And if you know, you know my "go-to" night time dessert is ice-cream. If you know me well enough, you know that I have specific brands and specific flavors within those brands that are my favorite.
