Oreo Truffles

A Happy Holidays to everyone!  Today is Christmas Eve and we will be celebrating by spending time with family, baking in the kitchen all day and eating every soup we can think to make {my dad loves to make oyster stew and tries to convince us every year that it's yummy.}    I thought I'd share a favorite treat with you to enjoy this holiday season.  It's really easy, and they taste like you spend all day perfecting them.


  • White almond bark

  • 1-2 teaspoons of Crisco (solid vegetable shortening) as needed to make almond bark smooth

  • 1- 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened

  • 1 pkg Oreo cookies, grind fine in food processor

  • Chocolate chips/baking bark (for drizzle)

  • Directions:
    Melt white almond bark in double boiler. Add Crisco, 1/2 teaspoon at a time to make mixture smooth (do not add liquid oil or water as it will clump). In another bowl, mix Oreos with cream cheese. Use mall scoop to make small balls. Place in freezer for 15 minutes. Dip in melted almond bark & place on wax paper.

    For drizzle: Melt chocolate chips & drizzle over white Oreo truffles with frosting bag/spoon.

    Variation: Use mint Oreos & dip in white chocolate/almond bare. The are more difficult because they are double stuffed (hard to form). Add 1 drop green food coloring to white chocolate/almond bark.
