    Default OREO TRUFFLES

    OREO TRUFFLES - we are calling them Reindeer Balls or Snow Balls

    1 Package Oreo cookies, Finely Crushed
    1 (8oz.) Package Whipped Cream Cheese
    1 Pkg Wilton?s Dark Chocolate pieces (Buy at Any Craft Store) (Plain old chocolate or white almond bark works just as well)
    1 Pkg Wilton?s White Chocolate Pieces, or any color (optional)

    1. Crush the Oreo cookies in food processor or blender. (This turns the cokies into DUST be prepared)

    2. Mix the crushed Oreo cookies with the whipped cream cheese until it forms a solid ball. (Blends best if you use your hand instead of a spoon).

    3. Form the mixture into 1 inch balls, or any size you like.

    4. Put the balls into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or in the freezer for at least 10 minutes.

    5. Melt the entire bag of Wilton?s chocolate either in a double boiler or the microwave for 1-2 minutes. Do not add butter to the chocolate when melting.

    6. Roll the oreo balls in the chocolate and place on rack to dry. Work quickly, one ball at a time, because the chocolate hardens fast! Re-melting the chocolate may be necessary about halfway through.

    7. Decorate the tops with the second color. To decorate the truffles with the second color, you can use a Ziploc freezer bag as a small pastry bag. Put the melted chocolate in the Ziploc bag. Cut the corner of the bag and use the bag to pipe the second color on top of the truffles.

    NOTES:
    ? We used the white almond bark to dip into and drizzled with the brown chocolate. It seemd more "wintery"

    ? Wilton?s also makes tools for handling the dipping and rolling of the truffles. You can also use a meat fork (two prongs). It is best not to use a regular fork.

    ? Instead of using a second color as decoration, you can reserve some of the Oreo crumbs in which to roll the truffles. Alternatively, you could roll the truffles in cocoa powder.
