Oreo Truffles/ Oreo Delights

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you all enjoyed the day, regardless of whether you celebrate Valentine's Day or not. I personally didn't do much, but I did cook dinner, make dessert, and watch WALL-E on the Disney channel, among other assorted tasks.

The dessert I made is a no-bake dessert. It's quick, easy, and delicious! Best of all, it only has 3 ingredients, woo! Are you dancing with joy yet? Drum roll, please...

Oreo Truffles/Oreo Delights (from Kraft Recipes

Ingredients:
  • 1 package of oreo cookies
  • 2- 8 oz blocks of cream cheese, at room temperature
  • white chocolate coating/white chocolate chips (or any chocolate coating)
Instructions:
  1. Crush the oreos in a plastic bag with your hands or a spoon. You can also use the food processor; pulse until the cookies form chunky crumbs.
  2. Pour the oreos in a bowl and add the cream cheese. Mix till combined. 
  3. Put the bowl in the fridge for about 10 minutes.
  4. Set out your wax paper while you are waiting.
  5. Start making your desired size of balls of the mixture.
  6. Melt your chocolate according to the directions (or put it in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each time) and then dip the balls into the chocolate, covering as much or as little as you want to.
  7. Put the chocolate covered oreo blobs on the wax paper and then put them in the fridge. 
  8. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  9. Enjoy!
Time: about 15 minutes

I decided to add food coloring and sprinkles to mine because of Valentine's day. The colors and sprinkles could be varied, or you could sprinkle crushed oreos on top. This recipe allows the use of low fat cream cheese or even non-dairy cream cheese if you need to or want to. Feel free to play with this recipe and tweak it to what you enjoy!
