Oreo Truffles

I decided I wanted to make a treat for Valentine's Day and I've been wanting to make these Oreo Truffles for a while now. They are so simple. Only three ingredients to make these awesome little cookies! My only problem was that I didn't have a food processor so I had to crush the cookies with a hammer!

Oreo Truffles

Makes about 36 truffles

1 package of Oreo cookies (I used the reduced fat)
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese
1 12 oz. bag of white chocolate chips

I put all but 8 Oreo cookies into a gallon size Ziplock bag and then used a hammer to crush the cookies into finely ground crumbs. If you have a food processor this step will be much easier!

Once the cookies are crumbled mix them well with the cream cheese.

Using your hands, roll cream cheese and cookie mixture into 1 inch balls. This part gets messy but it tastes amazing! Place all of your formed truffles onto a cookie sheet and place in the fridge for about 10 minutes to harden slightly. This will make dipping them in the melted chocolate easier.

While the truffles are cooling in the fridge, melt your package of white chocolate chips in a dish by heating for about 3 minutes at 50% power. Stirring every 30 seconds. You want to chocolate to be thin enough to easily coat the Oreo dough.

Using a spoon place one truffle at a time into the melted white chocolate until it is well coated then place onto a cookie sheet coated in wax paper.

After they are all coated put them back into the fridge until the chocolate hardens which only takes a few minutes.. then enjoy!
