A friend of mine made these for our PTA Christmas brunch. They were so yummy that I made my own batch for my own family Christmas celebration.
1 package of regular Oreo (no Double Stuffed), divided
1 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
16 oz. vanilla candy melts
Take out 2 Oreos and reserve for topping. Take the remaining Oreos and place in a food processor. Pulse until finely crushed. (If you don’t have a food processor, you can place Oreos in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin.)
Pour crushed Oreos into a mixing bowl along with cream cheese. Using the back of a spoon, stir mixture while pressing it along the bottom of the bowl until well combined and evenly moistened. Scoop mixture and form into 1 inch balls. Place balls on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Place truffles in freezer for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, crush the 2 remaining cookies. Melt the candy melts as directed on package. Remove truffles from freezer and dip in melted chocolate. Return to baking sheet, immediately sprinkle with remaining Oreos then allow chocolate to set. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
Yields: 36 Truffles
