Merry Christmas eve, everybody. I'm so excited, like a little kid. I love opening presents and watching my loved ones open theirs. I can't wait to start a family of our own and make traditions with our little ones, like leaving out milk and cookies for Santa, and recording them opening their gifts every year.
But I'm getting ahead of myself here. No babies yet.
But I do have these babies! Oreo truffles. I'm sure you've seen them around blogland before. I just knew I had to make them and add them to my Christmas cookie collection.
ever so slightly adapted from Chef n Training
- 1 package Berry Burst Ice Cream Oreos
- 4 oz cream cheese, softened
- white chocolate chips, for dipping
Chop oreos up finely in a food processor. Save some of the finely crushed oreos for garnish later and set aside.
With your hands, mash the softened cream cheese and crushed oreos in a large bowl until well combined.
Roll the mixture into 1" balls and place on a wax covered cookie sheet. Place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes to allow to harden.
Once balls have hardened, melt the white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl according to directions.
Pull the oreo truffles out of the freezer and dip into the chocolate. Garnish with reserved oreo crumbs before the chocolate sets. Refrigerate and enjoy.
You've gotta add these to your holiday baking treat list. The recipe is simple enough and definitely a keeper. Not gonna lie though, I do have problems making them look as pretty as some... that dang white chocolate can be tricky to work with... for me at least. But some of my truffles turned out better than others (I just don't photograph those ones), and with practice I bet I can make them even prettier. They sure did taste great!
I'm off to open a Christmas eve present with my love. Maybe I'll have a cup of egg nog, too.
As always, I want to thank Brenda for hosting and putting up with my lateness. Be sure to check out the other holiday treats in the blog hop below:
Peace, and bacon grease!
