On Sunday night, I turned my little kitchen into a sugary chocolate zone and made the always fun, always easy, always sticky and slimy Oreo Truffles. You know 'em - the little round treats made of three ingredients that will make just about anyone's day: cream cheese, oreos, and Baker's chocolate squares. I got artsy, my husband got a little worried, but in the end my truffle photo shoot turned out well.
You might need a nice cup of coffee to go with this post - get ready to eat your computer screen!
1 8 oz. package of softened Philadelphia Cream Cheese
Toss all cookies but 9 into blender; chop into a fine oreo "dust".
Pour into large mixing bowl, mix together with softened cream cheese.
Continue to stir/fold/mix until oreo and cream cheese are throughly blended.
Melt chocolate squares in microwave, a few seconds at a time - take out between intervals, stir, replace in microwave. Continue doing this until chocolate is completely smooth, but be careful not to "cook" it!
Roll oreo/cream cheese mixture into 1" balls and coat with melted chocolate. Place on wax paper. Do a few at a time, decorate.
Refridgerate. (Makes 3-4 dozen.)
*Try to wait at least a couple of hours before devouring all of them - they're way better cold.
Oh, and don't forget to clean up (why do i enjoy running soapy water through my blender?):
Ok, you got me. I just wanted to show off my awesome blender and lime green toaster!
