My husband makes these! They are really good.
You may have guessed by now that i love oreos, but then again who doesnt!
Difficulty: ★★★☆☆ (Moderate)
Yield: 40 truffles
- One pack of Oreo Cookies
- One 14 ounce pack of white chocolate bark
- One 8 ounce pack of cream cheese
- Sprinkles or decorating crystals (optional)
- In a food processor fitted with the blade attachement, process oreos until a fine crumb is formed.
- Add the cream cheese through the feeder tube in approximately two ounce chunks, while the machine continues to run. Once all of the cream cheese is combined, you should have a soft, gooey dough.
- Shape the dough into balls with your hands, and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Let rest in the freezer for at least 15 minutes—this will help everything stay together when you dip them in chocolate.
- Melt white chocolate bark or candy melts according to package directions. Place chocolate in a small bowl, and dip the oreo truffles in chocolate using a spoon. Carefully shake off the excess chocolate and place back on the parchment-lined sheet. You can add sprinkles or decorating crystals now, while the chocolate is still wet, if you desire. Once all of the truffles are dipped and back on the baking sheet, place the sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes or in the refrigerator for half an hour or so, to allow the chocolate to set. Enjoy!
The most terrible and beautiful and interesting things happen in a life. For some of you, those things have already happened. Whatever happens to you belongs to you. Make it yours. Feed it to yourself even if it feels impossible to swallow. Let it nurture you, because it will.

But who can say what’s best? That’s why you need to grab whatever chance you have of happiness where you find it, and not worry about other people too much. My experience tells me that we get no more than two or three such chances in a life time, and if we let them go, we regret it for the rest of our lives.
