Christmas Treats--Oreo Truffles
Oreo Truffles are so darned good. My cousin turned me on to these easy to make delicious treats. To make them Christmassy just sprinkle with Christmas sprinkles or use red or green candy melts instead of the bark.
Here is the recipe:
1 pkg. Oreo Cookies
1 8oz. Cream cheese softened
pkg of candy coating or Almond Bark
Sprinkles or cookie crumbs
Crush Oreos very finely in food processor. Mix cookie pieces with cream cheese. Roll into small balls and put on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Place in freezer for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, melt candy coating or bark in microwave slowly- stirring every 20 seconds so it will not burn. Then dip balls into coating and let cool on waxed paper. Sprinkle with cookie crumbs or sprinkles or drizzle with another color candy coating. Be creative and you can let the kids help decorate them! You will get rave reviews with these! I made them in White candy coating for my nieces wedding and they were the hit of the reception!
