Easy OREO Truffles
Since coming across this great & simple recipe, I have made at least a dozen different batches & has been a hit at work & parties. Women say they are orgasmic. :) How can you go wrong. Like other reviewers I always chill them first. I don't chill before rolling them with my 5yr old little helper. I pop them in the freezer for a while & then transfer to the fridge prior to dipping. I use a strong plastic fork with the 2 middle prongs removed (just bend them back and break off).
I also like to mix my chocolates and use a variety for dipping, chocolate almond bark, then add both dark & milk choco candy bars & chips.
I also line a cookie sheet & sprinkle excess cookie crumbs to help the bottoms from sticking. I tap the dipped truffle on the side of the pot to remove excess chocolate & just drop onto the sheet. I usually only take out about 6 from the fridge at a time so they stay chilled. You may have areas of uncovered truffle, just use the tip of the fork to recover the areas. I then sprinkle each one with extra crumbles, nuts, decorating colored sugar or powdered sugar...be creative. After I have a cookie sheet filled I then pop them back in the fridge to cool again. My 5 yr old does not like minty things, but loves the Mint Oreo Truffles.
Anytime I have taken these to a gathering, there are never any left. So leave a few at home for yourself to enjoy later. This is now one of my staple recipes I take to all parties at their request :-)
