I got this recipe from the travel agent we use at work. It's super easy to make and everyone loves the truffles.

Oreo Truffles

1 pkg (1lb 2 oz) Oreo cookies, crushed (regular cookies NOT double stuff)
1 pkg (8 oz) Cream cheese, softened in microwave
2 pkgs (12 oz each) Semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 pkg (12 oz) White chocolate chips for decoration or get some white candy discs from the bulk food section you dont need much.
Crisco shortening about 2 tablespoons

Crush entire package of Oreos into fine crumbs in a food processor. Do this in 3 batches, otherwise it will overflow (at least my food processor overflows). Place in large bowl and stir in softened cream cheese until no white streaks remain. Roll into walnut-sized balls and place on a wax paper covered cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 1 hour or put in freezer for ½ hour.

Melt chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl, 1 bag at a time and add a tablespoon of Crisco shortening to each pkg. Dip truffles in melted chocolate with a couple of spoons. Place back on wax paper covered cookie sheets.

Melt the white chocolate disks and put in a sandwich bag, snip a tiny corner off and drizzle the chocolate on top of each truffle. Refrigerate.

Ive never tried it, but you could use the mint Oreos for a different flavor, or add a bit of peppermint to the mix, or any other flavor for that matter.

Oh man, Oreo truffles are the best when you use the mint Oreos!! Or maybe it's just that I love mint and chocolate together! Hehehe.

Thanks again.




Thanks for the review! Glad you liked them, they are so nice and chewy aren't they?
I don't think anyone has ever called me an angel before...

Who is in charge of the google doc for this thread? In the updated recipe links thread (see my signature) I discovered that link is no longer good. This is the link I'm using: http://docs.google.com/View?do....._0ct6gq9fg

Can anyone tell me what's wrong here?

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ME! Not sure which one is giving you trouble, but here are the links...

After I post this reply I will click on all three links and verify that they work, if not I will investigate.

Ok, I clicked on all three and they seem to be working for me, let me know if any of you can't get to them!

BobWonderBuns, you don't have all of the link URL. There are dots for part of the address.

I don't know how to get it fixed. Here's the link I am having trouble with: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=625803&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=75

Don't worry about the dots! That is not indicative of any missing letters, that's just how it displays when you see it in the thread. The whole link is really there though.

Yes, that's the one. Do a right click on the last link I made and copy link location and paste over the one that doesn't work.
If you just highlight and copy, you'll get the dots and the link won't work.

I'm happy to keep up with the Google docs I was doing. Do you think I should start a new Cookie exchange thread? Or has someone already? Any thoughts on it?

I've just bumped a few threads...
An excellent idea to start a new one for this year. Everyone loves them.
