Stop! Danger! Turn Back!

There is no reason, EVER, to make these
devilish delights...truly...
YOU WILL BE SORRY!

And if "friends" were really friends, they
would never even tell you about such things
let alone bring samples!


Alas, the damage has been done...We not only
saw these monstrous little thigh-makers!
We ate them!!! **Sigh** and then in a
complete lapse of sanity, we made them too!


So, here's the recipe, that you
might experience the danger...
and delight, that is the...

OREO TRUFFLE



INGREDIENTS

  • 1 (16 ounce) package OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, divided
  • 1 (8 ounce) package PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted

DIRECTIONS

  1. Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor; reserve for later use. (Cookies can also be finely crushed in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin.) Crush remaining 36 cookies to fine crumbs; place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1-inch in diameter.
  2. Dip balls in chocolate; place on wax paper-covered baking sheet. (Any leftover chocolate can be stored at room temperature for another use.) Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs.
  3. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator.

  • Place truffle ball in melted chocolate to coat; roll if necessary. Lift truffle from chocolate using 2 forks (this will allow excess chocolate to run off) before placing on wax paper.

  5. Now I can't turn down chocolates. And this is what everyone needs as it's just bite sized. Sound easy to make too :-) Now that is dangerous.

    Since you guys are chocolate lovers - maybe you'd like to try chocolate cake balls. I made them a few months ago and they look pretty and tastes yummy too! REcipe from Bakerella.

  10. Where have I landed? I see little beachy touches — starfish and a shell encrusted little church (which I make). I also see plenty of roses, teacups and pink (all favs). I see vintage postcards and ask myself, does she know I post vintage beach photos every Monday? Then to top it off, what do I see for Foodie Friday? Chocolate! Yes rich, divine, decadent chocolate and I know today has been a good day in blogland.
