Chocolate-Covered Oreo Truffles

Part of eating healthy, is allowing yourself to indulge once in a while. For New Year’s, we made these delicious Chocolate-Covered Oreo Truffles. They were very easy and very delicious. My friend Heidi actually makes these as well and I didn’t put it together until I started making them. She makes hers with white chocolate (which I really don’t like), so that may be why I over-looked it. Either way, get ready to WOW people with how pretty these look!

Chocolate-Covered Oreo Truffles

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Oreos
  • 1 8 oz. package 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
  • 12 oz. (2 packages) Baker’s Semi-Sweet baking chocolate

Directions:

  1. Chop whole Oreos (including cream filling) in the food processor until finely crumbled, set aside 3 tablespoons.
  2. Mix cookie crumbs with cream cheese in a large bowl.
  3. Form mixture into 1-inch balls and place onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
  4. Place the rolled balls in the freezer for at least 15 minutes to chill.
  5. Unwrap the chocolate and in a small/medium glass bowl, melt in the microwave according to package directions.
  6. Using a toothpick to stab the semi-frozen ball, coat in chocolate and return to the lined cookie sheet. If needed, us a fork or a corn cob handle to help pull the toothpick out.
  7. Sprinkle some of the remaining crumbs on top of the (still wet) truffles. (Another option here is to sprinkle with hot cocoa mix for a lighter color.)
  8. Refrigerate for one hour.
