Oreo Truffles

Last week one of my best friends came to visit from Florida and suggested we make something while she was here. Nothing says getting in the Christmas spirit like spending time in the kitchen.

She suggested we make Oreo Truffles and I was instantly game...because, one- Oreo's and two- I had never made them or tried them before. They were easy to make and I enjoyed the time in between the steps because it made our time to catch up even easier when we weren't focused on the task at hand ;) 

You will need:
1 package / 24 Oreo cookies- finely crushed
1 8 oz. package softened cream cheese
1 package white chocolate candy melts- melted
sprinkles for decoration

To make:
line a baking sheet with parchment paper & set aside
blend Oreo cookies to a fine crumb in a blender or food processor
add the cream cheese until well combined
shape in to 1 inch balls & place on to parchment paper
freeze for 30 minutes
melt white chocolate according to package
dip the balls in to chocolate, place on the baking sheet & immediately top with sprinkles
refrigerate for 20 minutes to allow chocolate to set
keep refrigerated before serving & store chilled for up to 5 days

I'm telling you what- these are dangerously good. The combination of the Oreo's and cream cheese and melted white chocolate...delicious! This is a nice option to take to your holiday festivities that isn't the normal appetizer or traditional Christmas cookie. 
I do recommend making them to take somewhere, because if left in your house you may be eating them for breakfast the week of Christmas...thanks Elisa :) I should have sent some back in her suitcase so I don't gain 5 extra pounds this week!

I'm a little behind on responding to comments and reading and hope I get caught up before Christmas! Since I won't be back here to post before then- I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend with the ones you love. I am so very thankful for each and every one of you that reads, comments and supports Dream Big and Buy the Shoes and you're one of my greatest gifts each and every year.
Have a Merry Christmas friends, xo!
