It’s been sort of a crazy week around here; lots of last minute things to do and some shopping to take care of! I still have a few things left to clean up around here and get out of the way. I might be even busier this upcoming week, whew. We have a neighbor who’s been really helpful to us this year….we’ve called them on many occasions at the last minute to feed the cat, pick up mail, etc. So I wanted to do something for them for Christmas. I found the cutest plate when I was shopping and should have taken a picture of it before I put food on it but alas, my mind just doesn’t always work right. Trust me, really cute and with a fun snowman on it. I decided to make them some Oreo truffles. My daughter told me how to do them after bringing them to my house last year.

They’re really pretty easy to do, they just take a little bit of time. Lots of you have probably already made them before! I still want to make some for us to have the next few days so I might work on that later today or tomorrow.
Oreo Truffles
1 package Oreo cookies
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
white chocolate and dark chocolate

Put the oreos in a food processor and pulverize them! Kathryn may have told me she puts them in a ziplock and crushes them that way, don’t think she has a food processor…..but it’s so easy if you do! Mix together the cookie crumbs and softened cream cheese.

That doesn’t look very appetizing I know but it gets better! Then form them into balls, maybe walnut size or whatever size you want. Put them on a baking sheet and into the fridge to firm up, for about an hour. I put wax paper on the pan.

Melt the white or dark chocolate, whichever you’d like to dip the balls in. For this time of year I dipped them in the white and used the dark to drizzle. I just used the packages of almond bark for the white and dark! So much easier to me than trying to melt chocolate. And I used the microwave for melting. It is a little tricky to dip these balls and I tried several different ways but it was all about the same. I tried toothpicks first and then just mostly used a spoon to dip them in and coat them; let it drip off as best as I could. Then put the coated cookies back onto wax paper to harden. Melt the other color chocolate and drizzle over the top! You can do it opposite, dip in dark and drizzle with white. I might even dip them in white and sprinkle with red sprinkles if I have them! I thought they looked good on the plate!

In fact, they look good enough to eat!

I only tasted it so I could make sure it was fit to take as a gift! And so I could tell you if they were good, and they were really good! So good that I want more. 😆

Two of my kiddos will be home today; the other two will get here later Christmas afternoon. It will be fun, fun around here then with little ones too! I’m looking forward to it, but get tired just thinking about it!
I’m off to church this morning…..we have a living nativity tonight and a candlelight service Monday night.
Can’t wait to show you a fun happy I made the little kids!
Hope to pop by to visit in any down time I have!

    I’m so glad your kids are coming in. How exciting. You will have so much fun. The Oreo’s were givin to us by a friend last week and yes they are great.
    Merry Christmas Gail……I have really enjoyed getting to know you this year.

    These are so good! I am making my batch tomorrow. I only use white chocolate, but I reserve some of the crushed cookie to sprinkle on top. That way, when I use the toothpick to dip them, I disguise the unsightly hole with the crumbs on top. I could eat a whole batch myself. Ihaven’t tried drizzling the dark chocolate, but maybe I will! YUM!

    I keep meaning to make them, but haven’t yet! 🙂 Maybe for Valentine’s Day.

    Here in our house, we are finishing up the grocery shopping (and I suspect that dh still has to buy my gift….he says it’s tradition to go out on Christmas Eve day and brave the crowds…as I get older, I just can’t do it! :)), finishing up the laundry and cleaning the house. I’m baking a few little things, and then the afternoon will be spent relaxing and then heading to Dh’s mom’s and step-dad’s house and doing Christmas Eve with them and 2 of his sisters.

    Merry Christmas!

    God bless!

    Ooo, those DO look delicious! I may have to try them next year. I had the same trouble with dipping with toothpicks when I was trying to make Buckeyes for our chocolate party earlier this month.

  11. Stacy Says:

    Those were really good! I vote that you make them EVERY year from now on 🙂

    We had a good time, thanks for having us!
