Oreo Cream Cheese Chocolate Covered Truffles

The original recipe is in the "Cooking the Costco Way" cookbook (thanks to Sarah for picking me up a copy and making these so I knew how yummy they are). Here's our recipe:

3 packages of cream cheese
2 package of oreos
3 cups of melting chocolate (we used ghiradelli 70% pure cacao chocolate chips)

  • let cream cheese come to room temperature
  • crush 1 package of oreos (use a plastic bag and a rolling pin)
  • mix both together thoroughly
  • refrigerate mixture for 10-20 minutes
  • use gloves if possible to roll mixture into 1 inch balls
  • refrigerate for 30-45 minutes
  • melt chocolate in a double boiler (metal bowl inside a pot filled with 2 inches of water on low heat) *** do not allow water/steam to get into chocolate!
  • line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil
  • crush 10-12 more oreos
  • roll oreo/cream cheese balls in chocolate and place on pan
  • Sprinkle oreo crumbs on top
  • Refrigerate until chocolate coat hardens
  • Eat and Enjoy!
  • store in the refrigerator and give the rest of the oreos to the kids so you have more truffles to enjoy :)

HA! Captain and I are making oodles of these tonight, along with a nutterbutter version, and perhaps a few others if we feel up to it.
