Easy Oreo Truffles5 Comments

The second best thing to having a big, loving family is having wonderful friends who feel like a family, especially when they have been part of your life for twenty plus years. I am so thankful for all the friendships I have gained from swimming. I am hosting a mini reunion of some GF turtles who have been part of my life since the age of 6. Although, we have all moved separate ways and are all over the country, we still manage to get together just because. The nice part is everyone’s parents are still in the area.

Today I am hosting a Blind Wine Tasting Party for these close friends of mine. I am doing appetizers and desserts, I will be sharing all the recipes with you over the next few days. The concept was to find the best cheap wine. Each couple brought two unopened bottles of wine, we chose red wine and set the price limit at $12, but you can change both to your liking. We blind tasted all of the wines. Then we ranked them in order from best to worst. Whichever couple’s wine got the most votes, that couple got to take home the second bottle of unopened wine each couple contributed to the pot.
So on to one of the desserts…Looking for a crowd wow dessert, here is your recipe. A woman I work with found this recipe for oreo truffles and I just knew they were the perfect thing for the party. I was able to make them ahead and store them in a container. They are decadent and delicious!

Easy Oreo Truffles
Recipe found by Debby Horneff at Kraft

What you’ll need:

1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened

1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz.) OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 4-1/4 cups), divided

2 pkg. (8 squares each) BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted

What you’ll do:

Mix cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until well blended. Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls. Dip in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

*I melted the chocolate in the microwave in my pyrex measuring cup. A little trick is to use a fork to dunk the oreo balls into the melted chocolate, that way the chocolate drips off through the prongs. Thanks to Martha Stewart for that little trick!! I also melted some white chocolate in a ziploc baggie and snipped a tiny corner to make the drizzle on some of the truffles.

    ah ha! So thats how they look so pretty… I burned my poor little fingers everytime I dunked them in the chocolate. I also melted the chocolate on the stove which took some time. Love the white chocolate drizzle! :)

    oh no that would put a damper on the experience! leave it to martha to think of the simplest trick, hopefully you will try them again!!

    Try melting the chocolate in a double boiler, then use 2 forks to take them out of the chocolate. This way, you can coat about 5 truffles at one time and not burn your fingers. That’s what I do and it works well.-Debby
