Oreo Truffles - All you Mom's deserve them!

If you have not had these heavenly little treats before, you need to make them NOW. They are so EASY, do not be afraid ANYONE can do it! I am telling you they are worth it!

You start with a package of Oreos, do NOT use double stuff. And one package of scream cheese.

Next, blend the entire package of cookies and the cream cheese together in a food processor.

Next, teach your kids to make these so they can make them for you. Really, it is that easy to make them.
Next, take the "dough" from the food processor and roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet. I like to use a small melon baller or little cookies scoop so all my truffles are the same size.
When you have them all made, put the tray in the fridge or freezer for a little while until the truffles are not sticky.
Melt 2 (8oz.) packages of Bakers baking chocolate in a double boiler (if you have one, i don't) and dip the truffles in the melted chocolate and put them on a new tray. I use the smallest sauce pan I have, with a fork and spoon I roll the truffle in the chocolate, lift it out with the fork and shake the extra chocolate off. Occasionally I have to put the truffles back in the freezer to set up a little more before covering in chocolate.
When you have them covered in chocolate I set them back in the fridge for a while. You can decorate them with a little bit of cookie crumbs or drizzle with white chocolate. At christmas we use crushed up candy canes and sprinkled the tops with them. These freeze really well. In fact, I freeze them so I don't eat them all!

The best part is that you can make these with almost any stuffed cookie. They are out of this world with Nutter Butter's. I have made them with almost all the flavors of Oreo's and they are delicious! I have even done fat free cream cheese and the low fat Oreo's and they were excellent.

If I could make some for all you Mom's that follow my blog out there for Mother's Day I would, I could never afford the postage though! So the next best thing is to tell you to make some for yourself! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!

~Have you made these before? What combinations of cookies have you used?

Wow, my pregnant self is craving some of those, I will have to give them a try. I better think of some mom friends, maybe the daycare moms, to give most of them away to though, or I might eat them all in the blink of an eye!

That sounds so good. And it's a good source of calcium right? I think I have to make some then.

I DID IT! I did it IM so proud!! Only two small problems, I only have a mini processor so that took a while then after scaring the 7m old four or five times I decided just to throw it in a bowl and go at it it wasnt bad it mixes well and my hands are washable anyways! Also I forgot to read about TWO packages of chocolate so we have a couple of truffles without chocolate LOL. But IT was FUN!
THANK YOU!!!

Yum, yum, yum I love these! A couple years back I was trying to impress a guy (LOL) and I made oreo FOOTBALL truffles! I made them in the shape of little footballs and then piped white chocolate out of a ziplock bag with a tiny hole cut in it to do the laces. They were so good I never gave them to the guy! LOL

When I did these, I threw all the oreos in a big ziplock bag and mushed them up with my hands through the bag, and then put it in a bowl and mixed it up with the cream cheese. I might have used a mixer at this point but it's totally not necessary to whip out the food processor, although it's probably way less effort. (Albeit more washing after.)

I did mine with regular oreos and reduced fat cream cheese.

I love it that you said scream cheese instead of cream cheese!

Did you get my email with the good transaction i did with the $105 grocery bill for only $22? I didn't hear back from you and haven't seen it on the blog yet!

Love ya Tiff! :)

I make these at Christmas time. I do all the same steps but once I coat the balls in the chocolate we roll them in crushed up Andes Mints and other candies. Reindeer Poop! You can't just eat one.
