All you need is:
1 package of Double Stuft Oreos
1 8oz package of cream cheese
White chocolate melters or chips
1. Crush the oreos. We use a food processor to get the crumbs really fine. Set aside about 1/4 c of crumbs.
2. Mix in the cream cheese. Use your hands! You can vary the amount of cream cheese you put in depending on how creamy you want them. We don't usually use the whole package.
3. Roll into one inch balls and place in freezer for about 15 minutes.
4. Melt white chocolate in double boiler or microwave and roll chilled truffles in to coat. Place on waxed paper. Sprinkle with reserved oreo crumbs. Don't wait until the oreos are all coated, once the chocolate cools the crumbs won't stick.
We've made all kinds of variations. Used mint and peanut butter oreos (seriously yummy) but these needed a little more cream cheese to make up for not being double stuft. We've also melted chocolate chips and drizzled the tops as in the picture. If you have a Win-co near you, they sell the white melters in their bulk bins. (I love Win-co's bulk bins!)
Enjoy, and happy back to school!
