The Young Women in our ward are doing a yard/bake sale to earn money for camp this weekend, SOOOO I thought I'd throw together some Oreo Truffles to help them out! Some of my sweet friends came over to help me with this project (I'm so grateful they did because it would have taken me 2 days by myself and we did it in 2 hours)! Thanks guys! Here's the recipe in case you want to whip some up!
1 package of Oreos (I use Walmart brand)
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese (room temp)
1 1/2 pkg chocolate flavored almond bark
Place the Oreos in a bag, crush them with a rolling pin until fairly fine. In a large mixing bowl, place crushed Oreos and cream cheese. Mix together until completely combined. (If you have a Kitchenaid type mixer, I recommend using it in this step. Although you will miss out on a REALLY great arm workout)!
Use a cookie scoop/mellon baller to scoop balls on to a wax paper lined tray. Place full trays in the freezer for 10 min. After your truffles are chilled, drop one truffle at a time in melted almond bark (I melt mine in a microwave safe container in the nuker for about a minute and a half). Cover completely in chocolate and pull out with a fork letting the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl, thus conserving chocolate. Place on a clean sheet of parchment or wax paper and let stand until hardened.
Devour or store in air tight containers.
(We packaged the ones we made in food grade treat bags that I purchased at Walmart in the party section. Finished truffled should be stored in the fridge.)
Happy Oreo Truffling!
