Cooking with Kari: Oreo Truffles

2014-12-06 12.53.42

OREO TRUFFLES. These are so easy to make you guys. Not the healthiest but realllllly good. And only 3ppv a truffle that’s not bad…in my opinion.

I did end up using orange (white) chocolate to dip my truffles in because I was making these to take with me to tailgate before my very first Brown’s game. They were a hit!

This recipe makes about 25-30 truffles. (I made 37 with my first package of and about 40 with the second)

INGREDIENTS

  • 16 oz package OREO Cookies
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese softened

I ended up doubling mine because of the number of people I was making them for (OK- I was only making them for 6 people in total but I wanted to leave some for my parents….and to have leftovers).

DIRECTIONS

  • Line baking sheet with wax paper.
  • Finely crush Oreos in food processor.

  • Place balls in freezer for 1 hour.

Optional:

  • Melt white chocolate in microwave by heating for 30 seconds and then stirring and repeating until melted and smooth.
  • Dip each frozen ball in white chocolate and then return to wax paper.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow chocolate to set.

Make sure you take some time out and vote! No matter what you vote make sure to do it. Recently I received a ‘voting report card’ from the state of Ohio. They told me I did pretty good but I missed an election…2006. I turned 17 that year and clearly not able to vote. So hopefully voting today will help my report card.
