Doug's sister, Emily, made these oreo truffles for the holidays! I tried them for the first time last year and they tasted just as I remembered... decadent, sinful, and oh so scrumptious! Do any of you make packages of cookies for the holidays? Might I suggest adding these to your recipe repertoire this year?! I think they are a nice surprise to traditional Christmas cookies and they are definitely sure to please the crowd. Did I mention that they are pretty simple to make? Yet another reason to make them...
Yield: 4 Dozen
1 Package Oreo Cookies
1 (8 oz) Package Cream Cheese
1 Package Vanilla Almond Bark
Twist oreos and take apart. Scrape frosting from cookies and place into a large bowl. Add cream cheese to bowl and cream together with an electric mixer. Put remainder of cookies into a ziplock bag and seal. Using a rolling pin, crush the cookies until they are in small pieces. Fold finely crushed cookies into cream cheese mixture. Roll into 1-inch thick balls and chill on a cookie sheet for an hour in the fridge. Meanwhile, melt almond bark in a small saucepan. Dip balls of cookie dough into almond bark and then place on wax paper to dry. Let set and enjoy. Drizzle chocolate almond bark over cookie balls if desired.
