Oreo Truffles

This recipe was printed in my local newspaper in a weekly column by Kim Warmath. Kim does a family column, and she always includes a recipe. When I saw it I instantly knew it would be good, because this recipe contains one out the two things that I have learned a person can always count on in life. Those two things are:

1. Bacon
2. Cream Cheese

I've never been let down by either; they both always come through. Although this recipe contains no bacon, it does contain cream cheese, so one out of the two makes it a sure bet anyway.




Oreo Truffles
1 (16.6 ounce) package Oreo cookies, finely ground
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 (24 ounce) package Almond Bark candy coating

Place the cookies in the bowl of a food processor. Process until finely ground. Add the cream cheese and process until cookies and cream cheese are blended. Place mixture in refrigerator for 1 hour to chill.
Take the dough out of the refrigerator and form into small balls. Place the balls back into the refrigerator.
Melt the Almond Bark in a double boiler. Dip the balls in the melted Almond Bark and place on wax paper until firm.

The ingredients are simple, packaged items.


Use a food processor to grind up the Oreos.


I had to grind mine up in two batches because my food processor is so small. Note to self: Shop for a larger food processor.


Add the cream cheese to the ground cookies.


Process until a dough is formed.


Refrigerate dough for 1 hour.


Make the dough into small balls.


Place the balls in the refrigerator. Melt the Almond Bark in a double boiler or the microwave oven according to the directions on the package.


Dip the balls in the melted Almond Bark. I like to use this long fork to dip them.


Place dipped balls on wax paper until firm.


These Oreo Truffles are a perfect little treat.
