Baking is easily my favorite part of any holiday…but the worst part about a holiday happening in the middle of the workweek is that I really don’t have much, if any, spare time to bake. So for my valentine, I made a quick, easy, festive, DELICIOUS treat…Oreo truffles! For the basics, you only need two ingredients: Oreos and 1 block of cream cheese, that’s it! To decorate, you’ll need chocolate chips and any decorations of your choice for the truffles.
It may be hard for you to believe that such simple ingredients create a decadent treat. But if you don’t believe me…taste the batter. You’ll be sold! I’ve made these for the last 2 years at Christmas, and now they are a frequently requested dessert in the Rowden household. I really like customizing them for birthdays, holidays, or really any day of the year. Try it, they’re a guaranteed hit!
1 package Oreos (I used reduced fat)
1-8oz block of reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
1 package milk chocolate chips (or chocolate of your choice)
1)In a food processor(or blender), mix Oreos until they become crumbs. Add cream cheese in small pieces, and blend until you have a dough form.
2) Roll dough into balls and place them on a baking sheet. (I lined mine with parchment paper). Set them in the freezer or refrigerator to harden for approximately 1 hour.
3) Once the dough is set, dip in melted chocolate – milk, dark, or white chocolate will do. Add any decoration on top. Store in the freezer and serve cold.
