Recipe of the Week - Oreo Truffles

Oreo TrufflesDSCN2518
36 Oreo Cookies, finely crushed, divided (Reserve 1/4 c. cookie crumbs.)
1- 8 oz. package of cream cheese
8 oz. dark chocolate, melted (chocolate chips or candy melts)
Mix cream cheese and remaining cookie crumbs until blended.  Refrigerate for 1/2 hour to firm up for easy handling.DSCN2514
Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls.  I used the larger end of a melon baller which helped to keep the size uniform.  Place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.  Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Melt chocolate in microwave or in a double boiler on range.  Dip in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet.  Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs. (Make sure you sprinkle reserved crumbs soon after dipping.)
Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.  Store in tightly covered container in the refrigerator.
Note:  I used two forks to dip truffles into the melted chocolate allowing some of the chocolate to drip though the fork tines.  Work only a few truffles at a time keeping the remaining in the refrigerator until ready to dip.

Wilton also makes a dark chocolate raspberry candy melt which I find at Michaels.  How good would that be with Berry Burst Ice Cream Oreos!

Have a delicious day,
