Mint Oreos~yum, right? Well, try adding cream cheese and chocolate to these wonderful cookies and discover Oreos on an entirely new level!
Turning Oreos into truffles…complete brilliance!!!
The ingredients for this recipe are very minimal. The ingredients needed are mint Oreos, cream cheese, chocolate for melting (chocolate chips, chocolate melting wafers, or any melting chocolate).
Place Oreos (cookie and filling) in a food processor or blender and pulse until you end up with fine crumbs. It works best (at least in my old blender) to work in 3-4 smaller batches of cookies rather than dumping the entire package in. Place your Oreo crumbs into a bowl.
Add softened cream cheese to your crumb mixture and mix thoroughly.
After mixing, you will end up with a sticky and thick mixture like this.
Before taking the balls out of the freezer, start melting your chocolate. I used regular chocolate chips for this batch, but have also used Wilton chocolate wafers. They both work fine, I think that the wafers however, give you a smoother finished product so I prefer to use those.
If you are making these truffles for gifts or a formal party, I would recommend using a higher quality baking chocolate. You can find it by the chocolate chips in the baking isle of your local grocery store. I am typically making these for a group of kids (myself and husband included :-)), so I find the cheaper chocolate works just fine.
Once your chocolate is melted, take a couple balls out of the freezer. You want to work in small batches so that the remaining balls stayed chilled.
Drop one ball at a time into the middle of your melted chocolate.
