Yummy Thursday

Remember the oreo dream truffles that I have been wanting to make for a year now?  I made them.  And they were EASY... and they were DELICIOUS!

Tip:  Mine were measured in 1 tablespoon size balls.  Um... these are very chocolatey... you really could make them smaller than that.  I'm just sayin'.

Oreo Dream Truffles
As adapted from the Kraft Foods Website

1 pkg. (1 lb. 2 oz.) OREO Cookies, finely crushed
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
2 pkg. (8 squares each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted

MIX  the cookie crumbs and the cream cheese until well blended. Shape into 42 (1-inch) balls.

DIP balls in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. (Any leftover melted chocolate can be stored in tightly covered container at room temperature and saved for another use.) Sprinkle with colored sprinkles of your choice.

REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm. Store any leftover truffles in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

Here are the no bake Scotcheroos (for the cookie swap, remember?).

Tip:  After you cool these in the refrigerator... let them warm to room temp before cutting.  You'd have better luck cutting wood for the fireplace with a steak knife then cutting these right after they come out of the refirgerator.  I'm just sayin'.
