I got this one from the Kraft Foods website. Nathan says they’re much better than what you’d get at an expensive chocolate store. Hey – if this is all it takes to keep him happy, I’m a very lucky woman.
1 pkg Oreo cookies
8 oz cream cheese, softened
16 oz semi-sweet chocolate, melted
Take all but 9 cookies and grind finely (in blender is best). Put into a bowl with the cream cheese and mix well. Divide into 42 balls, about 1″ each. Melt the chocolate, and dip each ball in the chocolate. Put on a cookie sheet covered with wax or parchment paper. Finely crush the remaning 9 cookies, and sprinkle the crumbs on the chocolate covered balls; refrigerate 1 hour. Store, covered, in the fridge.
Picture of some candy-making tools that might make dipping the truffles (without leaving a mark) easier:
I bought mine super cheap on clearance from Gooseberry Patch about a year ago, and I’m sure you could find them in Bed, Bath, & Beyond, any good cooking store like Williams Sonoma, and probably even Target. The round one is used for the dipping, and points down like a cone. I use the others for “pushing” the truffles off.
