Oreo Chocolate Truffles

So my sister introduced me to this AWESOME AMAZING FABULOUS recipe!! So I have to give all the credit to her and YES they are THAT good! I put my own little spin on it for Valentines Day but owe her total and complete props for her recipe!! Check her out at Faith Works!

What you will need:
  • 8oz Bar of Cream Cheese
  • 36 Oreos (ALMOST a whole box of Oreos)
  • Chocolate pieces
  • White chocolate pieces (red)
Wine Paddle 032
Step 1:
Empty cream cheese into a bowl.
Wine Paddle 033
Step 2:
Place Oreos with cream cheese.

Step 3:
Mix together both ingredients . I first started using my hands…then realized I should have used my kitchen aid but since I already dirtied a bowl I whipped out my hand mixer and used that lol

You might need to stop midway threw and clean out your whisks…
ps: YES everything in my kitchen is pink…I LOVE the color. It is my fave!!  And since I am making Valentines Day Oreo truffles I figured I would whip out ALL my pink utensils =)

Step 4:
Use your hands and make round balls with your mixture. I placed them on two cookie sheets.

Step 5:
Place in freezer for about 20min

Step 6:
Melt chocolate. You can use a double boiler but to make it easier I melted it in the microwave. First start with your milk chocolate pieces. ( TIP: You can use ANY kind of chocolate. I love dark chocolate…but the people I am making these for prefer milk!) Place chocolate in microwave for about 30sec at a clip take out and stir. Continue until chocolate is completely melted…you don’t want to burn your chocolate.

Step 7:
Take Oreo balls out of the freezer and place them in the milk chocolate. I used a toothpick, valentines day themed =), to pick the balls up and place in the chocolate. Dip the chocolate down and slowly lift up and place on foil.

Step 8
Let harden! Should take no more then 5 minutes. By the time I was done with the last ball the rest were hardened!

TIP: EVERYONE uses wax paper…I love it..and love using it...but for this I used foil and I must say it was fantastic! When I lifted up the balls they didn’t stick at all. I sometimes find when I use wax paper it tends to give me a little bit of resistance. – see no mess..and the bottom is firm and didn’t even leave a mark of chocolate on the foil!

Step 9:
Melt red chocolate (white chocolate) the same way you did the milk chocolate.
Wine Paddle 051Wine Paddle 066
Step 10:
I drizzled the red chocolate over the balls.
Get a plastic bag turn it inside out over your hand like this….
Wine Paddle 067
Wine Paddle 068
Step 11:
Place chocolate on top of the bag..then turn the bag outside to in!
Wine Paddle 069Wine Paddle 070
Cut tip of bag and start drizzling!
Wine Paddle 071Wine Paddle 072Wine Paddle 073Wine Paddle 074Wine Paddle 075
Step 12:
I placed the balls back in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to “flash freeze” them so that I could store them in a freezer safe container.
Wine Paddle 079Wine Paddle 080
This is what YOURS should look like on the outside and inside..

A chef should always taste their finished product right?? (:
