Oreo and Cream Cheese “Truffles”

These easy-to-make treats, made simply of ground-up Oreos and cream cheese dipped in chocolate may be low-brow as confections go, but they’re universally popular. Lissar experimented with peanut butter sandwich cookies and a combo of cream cheese and peanut butter, and they came out beautifully. momjamin varies the dipping chocolates and drizzles to make a variety of looks.

Here’s the recipe:

1 pound Oreos
8 oz. cream cheese
1 pound milk or dark chocolate
1/2 pound white chocolate

Grind Oreos to find powder in food processor. With a mixer, blend cookie powder and cream cheese until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese). Roll into small balls and place on wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Chill 45 minutes. Line two cookie sheets with wax paper. In double-boiler, melt milk or dark chocolate. Dip balls and coat thoroughly. With slotted spoon or fork, lift balls out of chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet. In separate double boiler, melt white chocolate. Using a fork, drizzle white chocolate over balls. Allow chocolate to set up at cool room temperature or in refrigerator. Store in airtight container, refrigerated.
