Cast your vote for Halloween Spider Oreo Truffle Recipe

Step 1- Prep the truffles

Crush 9 oreo cookies into fine crumbs in food processor and reserve. Crush remaining cookies in the food processor and place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into 36 balls, about 1-inch in diameter.

Step 2- Melt the Chocolate

Melt chocolate in a double broiler over medium heat until smooth, stirring often. Remove chocolate from heat.

Double Boiler

A double boiler is a must when melting chocolate, cheese or making a delicate sauce. It prevents a liquid from burning or seizing that would normally have to be stirred constantly. It maintains a constant temperature at a perfect boiling temperature.

Doubler Boiler on a Budget

This unit fits inside a saucepan between 6-9 inches in diameter or 1-4 quarts in capacity. It's the first "double boiler" I had when first starting out cooking on a budget. It works extremely well and is a fraction of the price of a typical double boiler.

Step 3- Dip truffles in chocolate

Place one ball at a time on a slotted spoon. With another spoon pour chocolate over the ball so it's completely covered and let the excess drain through the slots. Place truffle on wax paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs.

Slotted Spoons

A good slotted spoon will allow you to completely coat the truffle in chocolate and eliminate the excess resulting in a better looking candy.

Step 4- Decorate the spider

Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Pour some chocolate sauce into a small cup. Dip a minature spatula or spreader into the chocolate and draw the outline of spider legs on a plate. Place truffles on top of the drawn legs.
