12 Days of Christmas Cookies: Oreo Truffles

I am so sorry that I’ve fallen behind!  I managed to catch the cold that has been going around the hospital and been feeling like death warmed over for the past few days.  So of course I haven’t felt like baking.  But tonight I’m headed to a Christmas shower for one of my friends and I was charged with bringing a dessert.

These Oreo truffles are perfect for a party.  They are super simple to make, look super cute, taste good, and are bite-sized.  All requirements for a party, in my opinion.  The fact that they only require 4 ingredients is just icing on the cake (or the truffle! haha I’m so funny.)  I’m not even sure if this actually counts as a recipe.

Oreo Truffles
Makes 36

1 package plain Oreos
1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
6-8 oz white almond bark
Sprinkles or various other toppings

Put the entire package of Oreos into a plastic bag and seal.  Use a mallet or a roll pin to finely crust the Oreos.  Make sure there are no big cookie pieces remaining.

Beat the softened cream cheese until creamy.  Use a rubber spatula to stir in the Oreo crumbs.  Mix until very well combined.  Chill for 30 minutes.

Remove from refrigerator and shape into 36 balls; they should about the size of a large gum ball.  Chill the truffles (I actually froze mine) for another 20-30 minutes or until solid.  Meanwhile, melt the white almond bark according to the package directions.

Dip the chilled truffles, one at a time, into the melted chocolate.  Make sure to evenly coat all the sides!  Set on a wax paper-covered tray and sprinkle with sprinkles or decorate as desired.  Chill until ready to serve.  Keep leftovers refrigerated.

what is white almond bark?

It’s vanilla-flavored candy coating. You can find it in the grocery store near the chocolate chips. If you can’t find it, white candy melts (you can get those at craft stores) are a great substitute.
