chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
vanilla-flavored candy coating, melted
When I originally submitted this recipe, I included several tips for easy dipping which were apparently edited out,like crushing cookies in the blender, chilling shaped balls before dipping, etc. Looks like most people figured it out on their own though! Any leftover white bark coating is great mixed with a little peanut butter and dropped in small wafers on waxed paper to harden. They may stay slightly soft but just melt in your mouth, mmmm...
These are also great made with peanut butter sandwich cookies (cheap store brand work great)and using creamy peanut butter for part of the cream cheese and dip in milk chocolate coating.
These were fun to make and look very pretty, but i couldn't tolerate the taste. you'd think the ingredients look like they'd go so wonderfully together, but they're sickeningly sweet and have a very odd texture. they went pretty quickly because i think they look delicious, but i didn't receive a ton of great compliments either. thanks anyway, but i won't mkae these again.
Ok--I had great hopes for this recipe and as far as taste--they can't be beat. But, when it comes to making balls and dipping them--I'm a total failure. So I made it easier--I melted the chocolate and coated the bottom of a candy paper (like Reese's PB Cups) and then put the ball in and covered it with chocolate. Much faster, better to look at than the balls with dripping chocolate everywhere and the taste is the same! Great recipe!!! No need for chilling the dough when you do it this way either!
OK...I stuck to the recipe...I used a processer to grind the cookies (you can eat 3 oreos before processing). I mixed in the cream cheese and put it in the frig. I made lots of small balls. I had to use more of the vanilla candy coating (ALSO CALLED ALMOND BARK). If my wife had not told me to look for Almond Bark I would not have found it. Anywho...gggreattt. Fantastic. I took some to work so I would not get even fatter and many said they were the best of all time! Fairly easy, very good, very fattening, tell the pig at work that they are cut off at five!
These should be renamed "Cookies and Cream Truffles" Do definately use the food processor: Throw all the sandwich cookies in the processor, puree, then throw in the softened cream cheese, let it go until is completely mixed. Then refridgerate the dough! You can make perfect balls in you do this. I roll the balls, place them on wax paper on a tray in the freezer while I roll more. Then I dip the chilled balls. It's not very speedy but they look nicer.
I've been making these for years - I call them "Oreo Truffles". I also drizzle melted milk chocolate over them for presentation (which also hides any mistakes you've made when dipping). I have also made them dipped in milk chocolate, drizzled with white chocolate -they're very pretty. Wonderful recipe!
Took these to our Christmas party. Everyone loved them and wanted the recipe. Dipped mine in white candy coating and placed in red mini cupcake papers on green dish. Looked like a lot of work but was simple to do.
These are Awesome. Change it up a litle by using chocolate almond bark (candy coating) and mint flavored cookies. Great for holiday parties!!
