Girls Night In. Wednesday. 7:30 PM. Don’t be late!
Typical invite for my girls and I. Never a typical event. Never the typical spread. Always the best times. Anywhere I am invited to I always bring something edible to fit the occasion. If I don’t it is somewhat of a crisis considering I live and breath food, cooking it, snapping pics of it and most importantly sharing it with others. Pita and a dip, standard. Cheese tray and jams, classy. Fruity Sangria, three bottles please. Mini cupcakes, worthy of an applause. Oreo Truffles, an absolute must.
My grandma introduced me to Oreo Truffles probably a decade ago. I had no idea what to think at the time. All I knew was they were the cutest little things and everybody had to have more than one of them. Imagine 40 some people hovering around the dessert table after Christmas dinner just eyeing the little things. Yup, it happened. Still does. Something’s never change. Quickly I knew I had to be the one to impress people with these little bites. I wanted to be like my grandma making these truffles that everyone would be remembering.
Two bite bliss is what I like to refer to them as. If you have never had one before, make them ASAP. Follow directions precisely and savor every single bite.
1 package of Oreos
1 8 oz package of Cream Cheese, (room temp)
1 package of White Chocolate Almond Bark
In a food processor add Oreos and “crush” until the appearance of crumbs starts to take form. Add in cream cheese and pulse until all comes together. Transfer mixture to a bowl and place in the refrigerator for roughly an hour. (This process allows the cream cheese to harden back up allowing shape to be had in the next step.) Using a tablespoon size cookie scoop, scoop balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. You’ll want them to be as round as possible. Place tray back in the fridge/freezer until chocolate is ready. Start to melt Almond Bark in a double boiler on the stove. Only do half a package at a time. Drop one truffle at a time into the chocolate. Using a fork take out and place on a clean piece of parchment. Place back in freezer or in a cool area to harden.
The beauty of this recipe is that you can use whatever type of Oreos you would like as well as Chocolate Bark. Make the Almond Bark a different color to fit your occasion, the possibilities are endless. One thing is a must though…you must promise to take pride in making this super easy, super stellar recipe. And remember to share!
