Oreo Truffles

Oh goodness!  It's already 8:17 pm and I am just siting down to write my Tuesday Food day post!  Well, thought I would fill you in on the most decadent dessert I have been making.  E-Z too.  I actually found it on one of my favorite blogs, Two Ellie, which came from Bakerella.  The recipe is as follows and is what I will be serving at Little R's Batman Birthday.  I decided it would be smart to do a trial run before freaking out the night before that something isn't right!  

Get a napkin and wipe your mouth-I know it's watering!!
  I think I am going to do exactly as Paula did for her son's 4th birthday, and put them on lollipop sticks. 

 Take a look at her decorations for the superhero birthday too-you will be seeing a few similar decorations at R's bday.  

Oreo Truffles
1 package oreo cookies (divided… use cookie including the cream center)
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
white chocolate bark
1. Finely crush 7 cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency. Reserve for later.
2. Crush remaining cookies and stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
3. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.
4. Melt chocolate as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry. You can sprinkle the tops with the 7 crushed cookies for decoration. (I usually eat mine before they make it to this stage.)
5. Once dry, refrigerate and enjoy!
Makes about 36 truffles.
Notes: I used a small cookie cutter to push the mixture through for the heart shaped truffles. Also, it helps to freeze the uncoated balls for a few minutes to keep the mixture from starting to fall apart in the melted chocolate. If this becomes a problem, dip them in the chocolate, let dry and then dip again. They are also good dipped in regular milk chocolate bark. And for an extra twist, use the mint oreo sandwich cookies.
Recipe amended from Kraft Food & Family Fall 2006.

    I've made these for Thanksgiving with the Taylors and for a Toys for Tots bake sale. Always a big hit! The lollipop sticks are genius.
