Sassy Oreo Truffles


Darlings! I've been packing like a mad woman! Tomorrow, we fly back to Seattle for good! Well for good from this project, who knows what's next...?! The bittersweet thing about leaving a place is leaving friends behind. However, before we leave I am making sure I hang out with as many friends as possible and as much as possible. Last week Vivianne and I got together and made some oreo balls, I am going to call them truffles in an attempt to sound cooler! LOL

Sassy Oreo Truffles
adapted from Undressed Skeleton

1 box of Oreos
1/2 cup cream cheese
1-2 TBSP coffee liquor
sugar, cocoa powder, and/or chocolate chips for coating
  1. Remove the cream from the oreos with a butter knife. Save the cream in a separate bowl.
  2. Crumble cookies in a food processor. Separating the cream from the cookies helps them blend better and finer. Blend dry cookies until you have flour like consistency.  
  3. Next add oreo cream, cream cheese and coffee liquor to food processor. Mix until dough forms, you'll know when it happens =].
  4. Roll dough into 1/2 TBSP sized balls truffles. You should get about 40 of them.
  5. Choose if you want to coat your truffles in cocoa powder, sugar, or dip them in melted chocolate.
  6. If you decided on the first two, place some sugar/cocoa powder on a bit of wax paper and roll your truffles in it. Place in fridge for about ten minutes so they can firm up a bit.
  7. If you decide on chocolate, place the freshly rolled truffles in the freezer for 10 minutes. Melt said chocolate and using a tooth pick, poke each truffle and dip in chocolate. Use a second tooth pick to free truffle from the deadly grips of the first...too much?=] Place in fridge for 30 minutes to allow chocolate to harden.
  8. Try not to eat them all in one sitting. Good luck with that.

In the spirit of Halloween I topped my chocolate covered ones with orange and yellow M&Ms =].

Happy Wednesday Dolls!
