Shannon's Story

I call theses truffles in disguise. Easy to make and yummy in your tummy as my kids say.

Once you dip them in the white chocolate you can customize them with any holiday sprinkles to fit your occasion. Enjoy!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
What can I say, these are just plain addictive! Anyone can make these simple treats - kids, non-cooks, even bachelors! (It's true, I've seen it with my own eyes.) But don't plan on eating just one...


1-18oz. pkg
oreo cookies (regular size, 3 rows of cookies)
1-8oz. pkg
cream cheese-block
4 oz
white chocolate almond bark

Directions Step-By-Step

Add oreos to food processor and blend until fine.
Add cream cheese to oreo crumbs and blend until dough-like.
Chill mixture for 15 minutes then roll into bite-size balls. Chill balls for 15 minutes.
Melt almond bark in microwave according to package directions. Dip chilled oreo balls in melted chocolate using fork so chocolate can "drip off". Set covered cookie balls onto waxed paper and let set aprox. 30 minutes. If using sprinkles or decorative sugars do so before chocolate sets. I usually do a dozen at a time sprinkling after each dozen.

    what is your secret to making the bark so smooth looking? These are fun to make and taste good but I am having trouble with the bard

    I'm sorry to say I don't really have a secret. I just put the bark in a glass bowl and melt for 30 seconds then stir, then melt another 30 seconds stir and so on until it is completely melted. I have never had trouble with clumping at all. I think the bark melts smoother than chocolate chips and there is no need to use a double boiler. Good luck!
