Oreo Truffles


Summer is upon us and it's heating up. Often times, the last thing we want to do on a sweltering day is turn on the oven to make a batch of cookies. These Oreo Truffles require no baking- you actually refrigerate them. So they're like the anti-cookie. See where I'm going with this?

And they are so gosh darn good! These were just one of the many yummy things my sister Britt made for my brother Mack's birthday. And! Wouldn't these be perfect for a bridal shower? It's that time of year where those shin-digs are happening in droves.

Recipe:

1 package Oreos (you can also use Golden Oreos, which are equally as delicious.)
6 oz cream cheese, room temp
Almond Bark, milk chocolate and white chocolate, melted

In a food processor, process Oreo cookies into a fine crumb.

Using a stand mixer, mix together Oreo crumbs and cream cheese.

Form dough into 1/2 tablespoon - 1 tablespoon sized balls. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Freeze for at least a half hour.

If you are making Golden Oreo truffles as well, do the same: process, mix, and freeze.

Take hardened balls from freezer and dip in melted Almond Bark. You can either melt the Almond Bark in a microwave or over the stove. Make sure not to burn it though, so gently heat the chocolate over medium-low heat. Decorate the truffles with drizzles of contrasting chocolate. Or do whatever your mind thinks up.

Place dipped truffles on parchment covered cookie sheet. Refrigerate to harden the chocolate before serving.

Remove from fridge 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

P.S. I was going to call them Little Marvels, but decided on Oreo Truffles. I'm still secretly wishing I would have stuck with Little Marvels though.
