Our very-good-cook friend recommended we make these Oreo truffles, and so we did. She makes flavors for a living, so we trust her taste. And you know what? They are delicious! Oreo truffles are deceptively easy: They look very elegant and time-consuming to make, but they aren’t at all.
In a blender or food processor, pulse 1 package of Oreo cookies (including cream filling) until they resemble crumbs. Pour the crumbs into a bowl and mix with one 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese until a moist dough forms. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place them on a wax-paper-lined baking sheet. Place the balls into the freezer for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, melt 12 ounces of white or semi-sweet chocolate in a bowl. Remove the balls from the freezer, and stick a toothpick into each one. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate to coat, and place on another wax-paper-lined baking sheet. Remove the toothpick. Once all the balls are coated with chocolate, refrigerate until they are firm. Makes about 3 dozen truffles.
