DaisypathAnniversary Years Ticker



I love this time of year...autumn! I am going to take a letter of October each post and create a thought for that day.

Oreo Truffles
Fall is in the air...cheese dip, and holiday foods!

My neice, Tammi Dossett, introduced me to Oreo Truffles last Christmas. I have "make truffles" on my Holiday To Do List (Kacy...when you come home from Chicago!). I want to share this O from October with you all!


1 lb Oreo cookies (3 sleeves)
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (using different extracts allows for subtle flavour changes...I've used mint extract, upped to 1 tsp) (optional)
1 lb milk chocolate
1/2 lb white chocolate

  1. Using a food processor, grind cookies to a fine powder.
  2. With a mixer, blend cookie powder, cream cheese and vanilla extract until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese).
  3. Roll into small balls and place on wax-lined cookie sheet.
  4. Refrigerate for 45 minutes.
  5. Line two cookie sheets with wax paper.
  6. In double-boiler, melt milk chocolate.
  7. Dip balls and coat thoroughly.
  8. With slotted spoon, lift balls out of chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off.
  9. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet.
  10. In separate double boiler, melt white chocolate.
  11. Using a fork, drizzle white chocolate over balls.
  12. Let cool.
  13. Store in airtight container, in refrigerator.

OK...I want pictures and reports on who makes these and your opinion! Also...if I need to be a taster...;-)

Recipe from Recipezaar I found lots of sites with the recipe, but I liked the comments and suggestions found on this site!
