Oreo Truffles

Out of everything that I make, These little balls of heaven are what people always request. They are ridiculously easy, far from nutritious, and insanely addictive. If you share them with anyone, just be prepared because they most likely will ask you for more.

These are made up of only three ingredients, Oreos, cream cheese, and white chocolate for dipping. When you first bite into this little hand dipped Oreo Ball the hardened white chocolate flakes off into your mouth. Followed by a burst of chocolate. The inside dough is rich and soft. The combination of these ingredients produces a very sweet end product and the cream cheese blends it all perfectly together, adding a small amount savor.

The easiest way to make this, and I highly recommend using a food processor. That way you don't get stuck crushing it all by hand.  First add all the Oreo's and blend them into crumbs. Then add the cream cheese in small chunks. The temperature of the cream cheese is a great contributing factor that determines how much you need to add. So I usually add half of the block, and then drop it in by the spoonful until it all comes together to form a soft dough.
After it's well blended and no Oreo cookie clumps remain, roll into small, quarter sized balls. At this point you can freeze them before you dip them, or if they are firm enough you can just dip them right then.

Once they are hardened, you can help yourself & indulge(:
