The third recipe I meant to share before Christmas was for these oreo truffles. However, these are appropriate for a little Valentine's Day sweet for you and your significant other, or even as a classroom treat.
The awesome thing is, you only need 3 ingredients. Ready, go!
Oreos (regular 16 oz. package) -- Christmas red seasonal cookies were used to get the red specks
8 oz. cream cheese
8 oz. chocolate chips, for dipping
Crush the cookies finely, with a food processor or rolling pin. Set aside about a 1/4 cup of crushed cookies. Combine cookies and cream cheese. Roll into balls. Melt chocolate and dip balls. Sprinkle 1/4 cup reserved crushed cookie over chocolate covered balls. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
By the way, these are super rich. I'm a sweetaholic and I can barely finish one in a setting. Okay, barely may be an exaggeration, but one is plenty for me.
You want a bite, right?
