White Chocolate Dipped Oreo Truffles

When Nikki from Chef-in-Training posted her recipe last month for these No Bake Oreo Truffles, I couldn't run downstairs fast enough to get the page off of the printer without my kids seeing it and screaming "You HAVE to make these!". I agreed but told them I would add it to the holiday baking list. Well, this week, I tried them out and I have to say, they are AWESOME and I'm not a huge Oreo fan (I'm  not really a sweets in general fan). They were SO easy to make, only 3 ingredients AND no baking so I can't burn them. :) I did however use the full 8oz. of cream cheese where she prefers 4oz, but these will definitely be on our holiday cookie platter this year! 


No Bake Oreo Truffles
Adapted from Chef in Training
1 pkg. Double Stuffed Oreos 
8 oz. cream cheese, softened 
12oz. White Chocolate 


Chop Oreos up fine in a food processor.  Add them to a bowl along with the cream cheese and mash together until well combined. Roll into 1" balls and place on a wax covered cookie sheet. Put in the freezer for 15 minutes.While balls are in the freezer, melt chocolate according to directions. Pull the truffles out of the freezer, and dip into chocolate.  Garnish with  sprinkles before the chocolate sets. Let chocolate set, refrigerate or you can also store these in the freezer in a resealable freezer bag until ready to serve. Makes approx. 2 dz. 


*Tip 1: Make sure you use wax or parchment paper to place the truffles on after they have been dipped in the chocolate. I made the mistake of putting a few on my baking cooling rack (the one w/ the grids) and the truffles stuck to it and ripped off the bottom of the truffle.

*Tip 2: If, when you melt your chocolate you find it too thick, you can add a drop of oil to it and mix well. It will help to thin it out. 

Enjoy!
