Another Something Delicious. Oreo Truffles.

So last weekend I had two "events" that required me to bring "something." One was a baby shower and I told a hostess I would bring something sweet and the other was Mr. Ruggedly Handsomes Church team v. church team softball duel and bbq. Seeing as I was making some sweetness for the baby shower, I figured I could just make double the fun and knock out both events with one recipe...

I have been wanting a reason to make those awesome cupcake pops Bakerella makes, so I really thought that is what I would do... that is, until I started going through her site! And happened upon these little round balls of fantastical joy for the mouth!

You may have tried them... or maybe you haven't. Either way, you should make them very soon because 1. they are super simple, 2. they don't require very many ingredients, and 3. oh. my. goodness. people will love you and sing your praises if you share. Okay, maybe they won't sing, but these little guys are a great ice-breaker and someone is surely going to want to be your new best friend for sharing.

I attached pictures, even though you can see them in at Bakerella!

Oreo Truffles
For one batch you will need:

1 package oreo cookies (divided… use cookie including the cream center)
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
white chocolate bark

1. Finely crush 7 cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency. Reserve for later. (I kept 14 because I doubled the recipe and had way too much cookie crumble left over.)

2. Crush remaining cookies (I started to do this in a ziplock but it wasn't working correctly so I whipped out my handy little food processor and did it that way. This was the part that was most difficult because none of the recipes I read told me whether it would work in a ziplock. Trial and error! :)) Then stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.

(It will look smooth after you finish with the food processor. Then you can add in the cream cheese!)

3. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (You can kind of see in the photo my cookie dough scooper... I used this to get the correct amount and then rounded them in my hands!)

4. Melt chocolate as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry. You can sprinkle the tops with the 7 crushed cookies for decoration.

5. Once dry, refrigerate and enjoy! (You can see I topped some with the crumbled cookies, and others I left alone. I think they looked prettier with the topping, but they all taste very good!).

One batch makes about 36 truffles. (I doubled and ate a bit along the way and came up with 70 and had the perfect amount of dipping chocolate.)

And apparently, you can make them with any flavor of Oreos or Nutter Butters in milk or dark chocolate are supposed to be yummy too!

Those look fantastic! I might have to try this one.
You sound like me - I always eat a little bit along the way when I make something! I'm surprised I'm not three hundred pounds . . .

Ok, those look AMAZING. I'd be open to taste testing these if you need someone.

Okay, buy the boots! I seriously LOVE them. They are super comfortable and very stylish. They also fit a lot better than others I have tried on. I do wear them with skinny jeans too, for now. I'm sure in a few months, my skinny jeans won't fit my non-skinny preggo body. ;)

I found them 25% off at Macy's.
