I had this idea at Christmas time and gave it a try, it was fantastic and very easy. I've had people ask me for the recipe so here it is.



10-12 oreo cookies

1/4 cup softened cream cheese

4-6 squares of white chocolate or a bag of white chocolate chips - melted

A sheet of wax paper



Place all 12 cookies in a food processor. Process until there are no lumps or chunks. The cookies should be very fine. Add the cream cheese and pulse until a ball forms. Using a melon baller, scoop out the cookie/cream cheese mixture and roll into a ball shape. Insert a toothpick into the center of the ball and roll in melted white chocolate. Place on a sheet of wax paper to dry.

Enjoy.

I love this recipe.... I have one you may like also. Same idea, only substitute oreos for nutterbutter cookies and white choc. for milk or dark choc. Those are my husbands favorite.

Hi Teresa! I realized I never wrote back about how the truffles came out...they were a hit! I loved them and so did everyone else and I had a few people ask for the recipe. Plus, my husband doesn't like sweets very much but he keeps asking me when I will be making more.  This recipe is a keeper!

Over heating chocolate will cause it to get lumpy and dry.  If you melt it slowly you will have creamy chocolate to work with. I use a glass bowl and a pot to melt my chocolate and never have any trouble.  What I do is use a glass bowl that sits about half way down in my pot.  Basically the pot holds the bowl up.  Fill the pot with water but not so much that it touches the bottom of the bowl.  Place your chocolate bark or chips in the bowl, turn the heat to medium and allow the water to boil.  The chocolate will melt slowly.  Using a spatula move the chocolate around so it heats evenly.  You should have nice creamy chocolate that remains that way long enough for you to coat the oreo balls, and even dip some pretzels in (another yummy treat). If it's the oreo/cream cheese mixture you have trouble with, try reducing the amount of cream cheese you use.  The mixture should come together and form a ball in the food processor, it will mold like play-doh would.  I hope this helps.

I made these this year and I froze the balls before dipping so they would be firm.  I used a tootpick and dipped them in chocolate bark,  and then drizzled white chocolate bark on top with a tootpick after the chocolate was set.   I put them  in the fridge for like 5 minutes to set.   If you can't find chocolate bark, melt some gulf wax (found in canning aisle) in with your chocolate chips.  It helps the chocolate dry and set.  Without it, the chocolate will always be soft.  Mine turned out very professional looking and everyone was really impressed...including myself.

I actually made these tonight and they were really good. I had trouble getting the chocolate to stick. It was lumpy. Any suggestions? I have a double boiler and let the water hit the top part but it was still lumpy.

I commend your willpower.  I wasn't that strong.  I had to try one as soon as they were firm haha.  Let me know how they turn out.  Have a great time with your guests.

I made one batch last night and hopefully will have time to make another batch. I haven't tried them yet...I am trying to hold off till I serve to our company tomorrow. Although mine didn't come out very pretty, so I think for the next batch I am going to put them in the fridge for a while before rolling them in the chocolate because they were very soft, thus making it hard to stay on the tooth pick. Of course, I don't care so much about how they look, as long as they tast good.

Hi Lanie, these are so yummy and totally addicting.  I made them for my doctors office as part of a "treat assortment" for Christmas.  When I called to make an appointment for myself earlier this week, the recepitionist asked me for the recipe.  Let me know how they turn out.  They are really good if you chill them for a little while.

Sounds delicious! I might try that this weekend since we have company visiting.
