And For Dessert: Oreo Truffles

Final Course: And for dessert… I was inspired that Oreo Cookies and Chris shared the same birthday week.  It was easy to settle on these mini treats.  I made the Oreo Truffles early in the day and honestly it did not take long.  Oreo Truffles were a perfect way to end the birthday dinner.  Added bonus- we enjoyed truffles for several days.  I enjoyed my day in the kitchen preparing a birthday dinner for the man I would marry again.  Love you, Chris! -AF

Oreo Truffles

1 package of Oreos

1 package of cream cheese, softened

white and milk chocolate almond bark

Put all Oreos in a ziplock bag and crush into small pieces, almost powder.  Place Oreos and cream cheese in mixer.  Blend until the mixture is consistent throughout.  Roll the mixture into small balls.  Place Oreo balls on a plate covered with wax paper.  Put the Oreo balls in the freezer.

After at least two hours, the Oreo balls are ready to dip in chocolate.

Melt four or five squares of almond bark (your choice of white or milk chocolate) in a microwave safe container and stir with a fork, making sure all of the chocolate is melted.  Begin by taking out a few Oreo balls out at a time.  Dip the balls in the chocolate, making sure the surface is covered.  (I used a cake tester to dip the Oreo balls- work fast!)

Melt the opposite colored almond bark in the microwave.  Using a fork to drizzle the melted chocolate over the drying truffles that were dipped in first chocolate. 

Get creative.  Divide the Oreo balls in half.  Dip one half in milk chocolate and the other half in white chocolate.

I feel that the white chocolate Oreo Balls allow you to taste the true Oreo flavor.

Great "Pick-me-up" treat for teachers or friends!
