INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 1
    lb Oreo cookies (3 sleeves)
  • 8
    ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 12
    teaspoon vanilla extract (using different extracts allows for subtle flavour changes...I've used mint extract, upped to 1 tsp) (optional)
  • 1
    lb milk chocolate

DIRECTIONS

  • Using a food processor, grind cookies to a fine powder. With a mixer, blend cookie powder, cream cheese and vanilla extract until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese).
  • Roll into small balls and place on wax-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 45 minutes.
  • Line two cookie sheets with wax paper. In double-boiler, melt milk chocolate. Dip balls and coat thoroughly. With slotted spoon, lift balls out of chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet.
  • In separate double boiler, melt white chocolate. Using a fork, drizzle white chocolate over balls. Let cool.
  • Store in airtight container, in refrigerator.
  • Note: When I am exceedingly lazy (most often the case these days), I forego the chocolate 'dip' and merely roll my truffles into various mixtures - chopped nuts, chocolate sprinkles, vari-coloured candy sprinkles, cocoa powder, chocolate shavings, coloured sugars -- still pretty -- less work.
