Oreo Truffles

Remember how I told you lot inward this ship service virtually Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles that 1 of my friends was leaving teaching, too I made the cookie dough truffles for her going away party?  Well, I also made these classic Oreo Truffles to learn along amongst them.  Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 side of truffles amongst your truffles, eh??

This is a classic Oreo Truffles recipe that in all likelihood merely virtually everybody has.  But I'm posting it anyway ... merely inward example you lot forgot virtually these beauties.  'Cause you'll desire to remember.  I know you lot will.  They're quite tasty.

The mixture for the centers of these Oreo truffles actually couldn't live much easier ... shell upwardly a parcel of Oreos too mix it amongst a parcel of cream cheese.  That's it.  Really.  Use a nutrient processor, too you're done inward virtually 2 minutes flat.  Then accept portions of your mixture too curlicue into balls.  I run a cookie scoop to learn my portions roughly the same size.  That's a 1 1/2 T. scoop, I believe.

Getting ready for their chocolate swim!
Then, run a fork (or a toothpick or your fingers or a spoon) to dip your dough balls inward melted chocolate coating.  I run the fork method.  Then house the chocolate-coated balls on wax paper to permit the coating laid up.

I commonly run the candy melt type of chocolate coating you lot purchase inward arts and crafts stores when I brand truffles or cake pops (on the left inward the motion painting below).  But I wondered virtually the Almond Bark chocolate coating you lot tin
purchase at the regular grocery shop or Walmart (on the correct inward the motion painting below).  Would it piece of job every bit well?  Does it gustation every bit good?  So, I decided to examination it out too produce got it learn head-to-head amongst the candy melts.  I tin really tell that I establish footling departure betwixt the two.  Honestly, I was surprised at merely how footling departure at that spot was.  I fully expected the candy melts to outperform.

Two chocolate coating options
Once you've dunked all your truffles, drizzle the tops randomly amongst some other color of candy coating to brand them human face all fancy-like.  As these were Oreo truffles, I chose white since the Oreo cream is white.

Hey, wait!  Don't forget my stripes!!!
Store them inward the fridge or freezer, too savour every bit needed.  See that empty spot inward the transcend correct corner of the tray below?  Well, I needed that one.  Mmmmmm.
