Truffles so delicious, you'd never guess the ingredients or how simple they are to make. The prep time is only 30 minutes, and you can make a full 48 servings for about ten dollars.
My ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE church girls class made these yummy Truffles for their Moms for Mother's Day. This recipe is from the Kraft website:
What You Need
1 package (8 ounces) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 package (15.5 ounces) OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 4-1/4 cups), divided
2 packages (8 squares each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted
MIX cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until well blended.
SHAPE into 48 (1-inch) balls. Dip in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
I have made or helped to make this Truffle recipe three times, twice with my girls. One of my girls planned and directed this truffle making activity for the whole class. They are best class ever, and the truffle recipe is pretty amazing too. Years ago, I bought some truffles on a few different occasions when they were made by volunteers and sold to raise money for Plaza Theatre Company. I was so surprised when I discovered the ingredients. I'd never have guessed the filling was made of crushed Oreos and cream cheese!

I hope you enjoy this Oreo Truffles recipe. I'd love to hear all about it, so please comment. If you make some, send me a photo!
Kraft Kitchens Tips
How to Melt Chocolate
Place unwrapped chocolate squares in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 2-1/2 min. or until chocolate is completely melted, stirring every 30 sec.
How to Easily Dip Truffles
To easily coat truffles with the melted chocolate, add truffles, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll truffles in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove truffles with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place truffles on prepared baking sheet; let stand until firm.
