Easy Oreo Truffles

A nother truffle to add to my recipe collection! The moment I saw this recipe in a Kraft foods newsletter, I knew that my truffle loving family would love it...Oreo cookies are my son’s new found liking and he really liked these truffles. These are one of the easiest truffles I have ever made... Unlike other truffles this one is very easy to handle, you can easily shape it in to nice balls or even cut it with small cookie cutters. I have tried these truffles twice first with Kiri cream cheese (a brand of cream cheese available in the Middle East) and the second time with Homemade Mascarpone Cheese…. I liked the Mascarpone cheese one more... Try these decadent truffles; I am sure you will like it J



Easy Oreo Truffles
(Recipe adapted from Kraft Foods)
Ingredients:
1 package (8 oz.) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened / Homemade Mascarpone Cheese
1 package Oreo Cookies, finely crushed 
2 packages (8 squares each) Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted (I used dark chocolate)

Method:
  • In a large bowl, mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until combined.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt chocolate in a metal bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Roll a heaping tablespoon of dough or cut into desired shapes with 1 1/2-inch cookie cutter and place on the prepared baking sheet. Insert a wooden toothpick into each ball. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. 
  • Dip into melted chocolate Return to wax paper and remove toothpick. Repeat with remaining balls. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set. Drizzle with white chocolate if desired.

  9. Oh...my....these look SO much tastier than dry ol' Oreos. I wonder if mascarpone would work as a filling substitute for cream cheez? Or perhaps peanut butter?

    I'd love to feature this post on my blog, which is dedicated to oven-less cooking...I live in Beijing and stoves are rare. Let me know if that's an option, please! Thanks for the excellent and simple recipe!
    Sincerely,
    Joanna
