Oreo Truffles

Pin It

Today is my second post for the Secret Recipe Club! I was given Erin's blog over at A Tale of One Foodie's Culinary Adventures and I had a great time going through her recipes! She is very adventurous in the kitchen and there were many recipes I was tempted to make. Since I've been meaning to try making my own cake balls ever since the craze started a year or two ago, I knew this had to be my chosen recipe. Especially since they are so cute for Christmas!

I love the mixture of oreo and cream cheese and really enjoyed how dense and rich the cake is. I think these are perfect because you don't have to be tempted with a large slice of chocolate cake sitting right in front of you. If you're like me and have trouble exhibiting self control when sweets are around, these miniature cake balls are a perfect portion size to help you do that. One (or two) little bites and your craving is curbed and you are left feeling satisfied. Enjoy!

Also, don't forget to enter to win my giveaway. You have until tomorrow!

Ingredients
  • 1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 pkg. oreo cookies
  • 16 oz. semi sweet chocolate
  • Extra oreo crumbs or sprinkles

Using a food processor, add the whole package of oreos and whirl until you have coarse crumbs. Toss in the cream cheese and whirl until just combined.

Shape into 48 1-inch balls. Put the balls into the fridge for about 1/2 an hour to firm up (you don't have to do this, but it makes dipping them a lot easier and they will come out looking nicer).

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Do this by boiling water in a small saucepan and placing a Pyrex bowl over top of the saucepan so it fits tightly. Add the chocolate into the glass bowl and stir until melted.

Dip the balls in the chocolate and, using two forks, toss to coat. Place on a waxed paper covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining oreo crumbs or sprinkles. Chill 1 hour or until firm. Store in tightly covered container in the fridge.
