Oreo Truffles

Oreo Truffles
1 pack Oreo cookies, that’s around 24 pieces
8 oz cream cheese softened to room temp. {I used Philadelphia}
1 cup white and/or semi-sweet chocolate chips, separated
1/2 block of parafin wax, shredded
Chocolate chips, crushed oreos or sprinkles for decoration {optional}


Use a food processor to crush oreo cookies.
Beat Cream cheese in mixer bowl and add crushed oreos.
Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
Refrigerate for a few minutes to chill. Cold truffles are easier to dip.

While truffles are chilling melt your chocolate and parafin in a double boiler or
the microwave. Stir to mix well. If you use the microwave watch it carefully. It will BURN.. F.A.S.T.!
I use a mini crockpot that I've had for 25 years. It tempers the chocolate just right. Newer crockpots tend to get too hot so, if you do use one, watch it, keep stirring every little bit so the chocolate doesn't stick and burn..

I use toothpicks to pick up the candy and dip them into the melted chocolate, you can use a fork or a candy dipper if you choose. I prefer the toothpicks.

Place on wax paper lined cookie sheet, sprinkle with toppings of your choice or leave plain.
Refrigerate until set. Store in tight container in refrigerator.

Do you see the marshmallow in the background? The one dipped in white chocolate? That's my secret KITCHEN TOOL for drizzling the white chocolate over the chocolate coated truffles. Works like a charm! hahaha...
