Snowman Oreo Truffles
- 1 package of Oreo cookies (finely crushed)
- 1 8 oz block of cream cheese (softened)
- 2 12 oz packages of white chocolate chips
- 2 small containers of mini individual oreo cookies
- decorations: decorative icing (colors orange, blue, and black)
First I started by crushing the Oreos. A food processor would be ideal to crush them, but I didn't have one so I resorted to a makeshift plastic bag, with plastic wrap. I laid one down on the counter, put the oreos on top of it, and then sealed them in with another piece on top.
After the Oreo's were crushed, I put them in a large bowl, with the softened cream cheese, and mixed them until well blended.
After this I stuck the blended oreo cream cheese mixture in the freezer for 20 minutes to harden before molding into 1 inch balls. This was a step that was not in the original recipe, but the cream cheese oreo mixture was too soft, to roll into balls right after mixing it, and it kept sticking to my hands, so I hardened it for a while.
After the dough was hardened I rolled the balls in 1 inch balls, and placed them on a cookie sheet, covered with parchment paper.
This dough made 40 Oreo balls, that I then froze for another 20 minutes. After that I warmed the white chocolate chips for a minute and a half, and dunked the oreo balls in the white chocolate.
This is the final product of all the Oreo balls covered in white chocolate, I then put them in the Freezer for one hour.
Last but not least decorate your snowmen! To get the mini Oreo to stick to the top, as a hat, I put a dot of white chocolate on top, and then placed the mini oreo on top of that and let it harden. An easier way would have been to place the mini oreo on top, right after you rolled the Oreo ball in the white chocolate.
Enjoy your Oreo Truffles!
