Treats To Make Your Mouth Twinkle

No Bake Oreo Truffles No Bake Oreo Truffles

½ package Golden Oreo’s, 12 cookies, finely crushed
½ package regular Oreo’s, 12 cookies, finely crushed
18 oz. package cream cheese, halved and softened
White chocolate candy melts, melted*
Sprinkles, nonpareils and/or sanding sugar, for decoration

Instructions- Intermediate

1. Line a large baking with parchment paper; set aside.

2. In a food processor or blender, separately grind both flavors of Oreos into fine crumbs. Transfer crumbs to two separate large bowls. Mix both bowls of crumbs with half the cream cheese(4 oz. each), until well combined.

3. Shape into 24 (1 inch) balls and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Freeze for 30 minutes.

4. Melt white chocolate according to package directions. Dip the balls into chocolate, place on the baking sheet, and immediately top with sprinkles or desired decorations. (I find a wooden skewer helps with the dipping! Just stick into the truffle, swirl in the chocolate, and place on the sheet).

5. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes to allow chocolate to set. Keep refrigerated before serving, and store chilled for up to 5 days.

6. Enjoy!
