I plan to make these for New Years. I am not sure if I will make them with Oreos, or use another cookie instead. I will post results if they turn out well (otherwise they were either a disaster or I forgot to either take a photo and make them at all. Leaving you with a lot of options).
- 1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz.) Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, finely crushed, divided
- 1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
- 2 pkg. (8 squares each) Baker’s Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted
Mix 3 cups of the cookie crumbs and the cream cheese until well blended (You don’t need to measure out the 3 cups… just reserve about 1 tablespoon of cookie crumbs for the topping. When I only used 3 cups for the truffles, I ended up with leftover crumb topping). Shape into 42 (1-inch) balls.
Dip balls in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Store any leftover truffles in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
