Made by Kid: White Chocolate Oreo Truffles

I was going to make these last night so they’d be ready for Valentine’s Day treats today, but when I mentioned it to My Tiny Sous Chef she was very unhappy that I would even consider making something like this after she went to bed, so we saved them for a day-of project for a day-of special dessert. There are approximately 1.73 million different oreo truffle recipes online. truffles5Totally modifiable – switch out the type of Oreo you use and the chocolate you melt and the sprinkles you use almost infinity different ways. Precisely. These are pretty basic, and totally decadent and delicious. Happy Valentine’s Day! Here you go.

WHAT YOU NEED

* 1 14-15oz package traditional chocolate/cream Oreos (or any similar sandwich cookies)
* 1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
* 1 package white chocolate chips
* sprinkles or leftover cookie crumbles for decorating

WHAT TO DO
Place all of the cookies in a large Ziploc bag and seal completely. Using a kitchen hammer or rolling pin, crush the cookies completely. You don’t want any large pieces at all. You can also dump them into your food processor and pulse until pulverized, but I’m still afraid of my recalled food processor blade that I haven’t replaced, and smashing cookies in a bag is way more fun!truffles1

Dump your crumbs into a large bowl, and add the cream cheese. Carefully mix the two together until completely combined. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Make small balls with the cookie/cream cheese mixture – about walnut-sized or so – and place them onto the lined baking sheet until you run out of mixture or space on your baking sheet. Place the baking sheet into the freezer for about 20 minutes.

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, going for 30 seconds at a time and stirring until fully melted and smooth. Now you’ll have to work quickly. Drop the cookie balls into the melted chocolate, and using two forks to help you, coat them completely in white chocolate and place them back onto the baking sheet, one at a time. Immediately sprinkle with a bit of decoration – either sprinkles or some leftover cookie crumbles – or none at all. When you’ve coated all of your cookie balls, put the whole tray in the refrigerator to set for at least 10 minutes.truffles4

Then get ready to test your self control. A-D-D-I-C-T-I-V-E.
