For You Friday - Truffles

WhooHoo it's Friday people and you know what that means, it's all about you!  What's more fun than you?  Well maybe some giveaways, tips, recipes, things I think you will enjoy, advice, and more.  I'd love to have you as a new follower but only if you are interested in crafts, DIY projects, humor, honesty, tutorials, and fun. 

So for this week's For You Friday, how about a yummy and very easy recipe.  We're heading to float the river and rented a house down in New Braunfels this weekend and so I needed a simple recipe that would get eaten up and this is what I did.

Oreo Truffles.
1 8oz package of Cream Cheese (softened)
1 package of Oreo Cookies
2 packages of Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate, or your preferred melting chocolate

Finely chop your cookies using a food processer. Take out about a 1/2 cup of the cookie crumbs. Then mix in your cream cheese and 3 cups cookie crumbs until well blended.

Shape your mixture into 1 inch balls. I use a mellon baller for this part.  Dip in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.

REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm.

To easily coat truffles with the melted chocolate, add truffles, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks or toothpicks to roll truffles in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove truffles with forks or toothpicks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place truffles on prepared baking sheet; let stand until firm.

Sprinkle truffles with colored sugar or sprinkles in addition to, or in place of, the cookie crumbs.

Enjoy this yummy goodness and make sure to put some back for yourself as they will be gone in no time. 
Oh this makes about 48 truffles.
