Easiest recipe ever. Seriously. You will be amazed at how simple these are. And how many compliments (and marriage proposals) you’ll get from people eating these. They are amazing.
If you have a food processor, these literally take about 3 minutes to throw together. Crushing the cookies by hand will up the prep time a little – just throw them in a Ziploc bag and pound away with a mallet or small soup pot. Prep will still be under 10 minutes. If you have time, I prefer to pop the batter for these in the fridge (after step 2) for about a half hour – before dipping them. Just makes the dipping process a little easier. Enjoy!
1 package (1lb 2 ounces) OREO cookies, finely crushed
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups milk or semisweet chocolate chips, melted
1. Reserve 1/3 cup of the crushed OREOs for sprinkling.
2. Mix remaining crushed cookies and the cream cheese until well blended. Mixture will be shiny and jet black. Shape into 1 inch balls
3. Dip balls in melted chocolate and place on waxed paper. Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs.
4. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Store in an airtight container.

Tonya….. how in the heck do you dip these?
too much chocolate on the ball. what do you dip with?
Two fork method. Drop the ball in the chocolate, cover with chocolate. Scoop up with one fork, tap excess off on the edge of the bowl. Tip fork down and slide truffle off with the other fork using gravity to help you.
Oh, and if you’re having trouble – try thinning your chocolate with a little shortening (if you haven’t already). About a teaspoon per cup of chocolate.
got it! Thank you much
