EDITED TO ADD :
(This recipe originally came from my friend Andrealeigh at My Chihuahua Bites! Last night when I posted it I could not remember where I had gotten it from. I was so tired I took the lazy route and hit copy and paste from the original text she used that I had saved to my computer. Sorry for the confusion. Let's give credit where credit is due. I could kiss her face for giving me this recipe. My butt, on the other hand...does not say thank you!)
Since so many of you requested the oreo truffle recipe, I thought I'd put it up for anyone and everyone who might be interested. They are not hard, just a little time consuming. Believe me when I tell you they are worth every single second of effort you put in!!! I'm making a double batch on Saturday for my sister's baby shower...at her request. I can hardly wait. I have been craving them since I ran out last Sunday. YUMMO!
One package oreos
One bar cream cheese
Place the oreos in your food processor and grind them until they they are a fine powder. Add in your cream cheese and let the food processor do the mixing for you. You should mix until you can no longer see any white. Of course, if you don't have a food processor, you can do this by hand. Just place your oreos into a zip lock bag and smash them to bits. Add in the cream cheese and mix by hand.
Roll the mixture into small balls and place in the fridge for one hour.
Melt one package of chocolate (I recommend ghiardelli brand) with 2 tablespoons crisco. I use the microwave, melting in 20 second increments.
Place a toothpick in your balls, and dip quickly into the chocolate. You can also use a fork to roll the ball around, then pick it up and let the chocolate drizzle off before placing it on your baking sheet lined with waxed paper. (Did I skip that part? Line your baking sheet with waxed paper - step 1.) Dipping is an art. The first 15 I did were horrendously ugly, but it just got better after that.Place the dipped balls into the fridge for one hour, and then store. Voila!
