Oreo Trufles

So I've had a lot of computer time this summer and I've stumbled across several really good blogs. One of my very favorite ones is bakerella. Everything she makes looks sooo good. I have a long list of things I want to make from her site. If you have time, you should check it out and bookmark it.

Chad and I invited a few people over to hang out and play Rock Band last night and I made these Oreo Truffles. These are one of the things that bakerella makes, but the first time I tasted these was a couple of years ago at Danielle's wedding shower. Julie's mom made them and I fell in love with them. If you like Oreo's, you'll love these!

1 Package of Oreo's
1 Package of Cream Cheese
1 Package of Almond Bark

Crush the entire package of Oreo's until it's really fine. A magic bullet or food processor works great for this. Mix in the package of cream cheese. I left my mixer going on high speed for a couple of minutes.

Form the mixture into balls...about 1 inch. Place onto a cookie sheet covered in wax paper and put it in the freezer until they are hard. I left mine in for about an hour.

Melt the almond bark over low heat until completely melted and smooth. Dip the Oreo balls into the bark and place on wax paper.

I topped mine with crushed oreos.

Place in refrigerator until ready to eat/serve. You don't have to keep them refrigerated long, it just helps the chocolate coating harden.

i like how you top them with crushed oreos. that way people can't see the almond bark imperfections (that mine always have). ha! good idea! at denise's bridal luncheon, they had cake balls... her recipe was SUPER easy too. yummy!!!

This is also a Day family (Julie and Jamie)recipe I believe! I agree with Danielle, such a good way to cover up the imperfections with the sprinkles! How many days till school starts?
