Oreo Truffles made easy
This is a recipe that I make with my kids for parties, Christmas presents and just for fun. Their smooth and so yummy and can freeze for months. You can make a large amount for cheap and I like to mix them up using white, dark or milk chocolate. I also use many different flavors of Oreos the best is mint or vanilla ones. Here's how to make them, and what you will need with some tips to make it so much easier:
2 large packs of Oreos (any kind or flavor)
2 packs of Cream Cheese
1 large bag of chocolate chips any flavor
2 Tbs. of Crisco Lard
Ok so now take your Oreos and place them in a food processor, grind them down till there smooth, you can keep them a little bit chunky if you want. Add one pack of Cream Cheese into it and mix. Then add a second Cream Cheese pack and blend till smooth. Put all your mix into a bowl and freeze for about 15 minutes just to firm it a little. Then take a scoop or your hand and roll the dough into balls or you can make them into sticks or I like to place them on a cookie sheet and flatten it out to make small squares. Make sure you line your cookie sheets with parchment paper or wax paper after you make your truffles. While there settling on the sheets put them in the fridge for about 30 minutes so there cold and firm. While there cooling in the fridge make a double boiler make sure the heat isn't to hot but enough to melt your chocolate chips. Add your two tbs. of lard to make the chocolate chips melt smooth and not burn or scorch. Then take your truffles out of the fridge and roll them in the chocolate with two forks. This works the best for coating. Freeze for 15 minutes and place in a container for keeping. For best results keep in the fridge or freezer till there all gone.
You can put less cream cheese if the dough looks to soft.
It is important to freeze them in between handling them because they get soft and mushy.
Also freezing before rolling helps firm them for easier rolling.
I hope you and your family enjoy these as much as I have.
