12 Days of Christmas yummies and treats : Oreo Truffles

    I made these delectable truffles for hubby's work party. They are very easy , no bake dessert even the big sister joined me in making these here in our small , messy , busy and happy kitchen. Jumping Bean loved it too!! These sweet truffles are not just tantalizing and mouthwatering , I tell you what.. they are very rich.




Ingredients:

a package of Oreo cookies ( double stuff kind is good too , but I just use the original one)
4 oz of cream cheese
 a package of Candy Melts ( can use almond bark , or any candy quick coating you like)
sprinkles

Direction:

Crush Oreo cookies ( in batches) using a food processor. If you don't have one , don't despair :) Just use a Ziploc bag , freezer bag size and a rolling pin. ..and if u don't own a rolling pin just use anything that can crush the cookies. Anything that will get the job done :)

Soften the cream cheese.



Combine the crushed Oreo cookies and the softened cream cheese. It will be crumbly at first but keep on mixing. You may want to use your clean hands.

The mixture will be thicker and it should be easy to form small  1 inch balls.


Place the Oreo balls in a slightly greased cookie sheet  , or in a wax paper. Put them in the fridge for about 20 minutes.


Melt the candy melts or almond bark according to package instructions. You may add vegetable shortening if it is too thick for you. 



Using a fork , gently dip the Oreo balls ( individually ) into the candy melts , put them back in the cookie sheet and design with sprinkles.  Let it dry.



Once dried , I used these cute little cupcake liners to hold each of the truffles. presentation matters , you know.


looks delish right?





How's your Holiday baking so far?
