Happy Monday everyone! I am finally starting to feel ready for Christmas....I just need to finish wrapping the presents:) I love this time of year because it gives me a good excuse to bake! I found a recipe on The TomKat Studio (LOVE her site!!) for Easy Oreo Truffles! She even made up cute printable recipe and label cards. Be sure to check out her site when you get a chance. I made some last night and we all LOVED them!! Maybe I am the last one to know about these easy truffles, but I had to share the recipe with you all:) Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!!
1 (16 ounce) package OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, divided
1 (8 ounce) package PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
2 (8 ounce) packages BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted
Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor; reserve for later use. (Cookies can also be finely crushed in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin.) Crush remaining 36 cookies to fine crumbs; place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1-inch in diameter.
Dip balls in chocolate; place on wax paper-covered baking sheet. (Any leftover chocolate can be stored at room temperature for another use.) Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs.
Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator.
