Indulgence: Oreo Truffles

My husband's favorite treat to make over the holidays are Oreo Truffles (aka Oreo Balls). They are super simple to make and if you can hold yourself back from eating them all to share them with your friends and neighbors (which will be no small feat!), they will most definitely ask for the recipe. Just trust me on this one. These are definitely an indulgence, but before we kick in with our New Year's resolutions, let's keep this our little secret. Okay?

INGREDIENTS


  • 14.3 ounce package of Oreos (do NOT use double stuf, it won't work as well)
  • 8-ounce package of low-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 16-ounce vanilla CandiQuik Candy Coating (vanilla almond bark also works)
  • Optional: chocolate chips for drizzling over the tops

DIRECTIONS


  1. In a food processor, finely grind all the Oreos. (They should look like coffee grounds when you're done. No large pieces should be found. If so, I usually let the kids sample those. :)
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oreos and cream cheese until it's all mixed together.
  3. Form balls bout 3/4"-1" in diameter using your hands. Put on a plate and place in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
  4. Melt the CandiQuik when you're almost done with the 15 minutes of freezing. Dip the oreo balls in the chocolate and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. 
  5. Optional: Drizzle with melted chocolate.
  6. Place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to allow everything to set.
