whitney’s oreo truffles

My brother’s girlfriend (shame on you, Whitney Jo), is known for making these addictive bites of wonder. They are best frozen, and eaten in pairs or triples. They are one of my kids’ favorite treats, and we always end up having a conversation about Whitney Jo – such a wonderful, sweet, sister-like friend. So lucky to have her in our lives! Enjoy!

Oreo Truffles
makes about 40

1 lb Oreo cookies (3 sleeves) – cookies and filling
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 lb white chocolate
1/4 – 1/2 lb milk chocolate (for drizzling on top)

Using a food processor, grind cookies to a fine powder. With a mixer, blend cookie powder, cream cheese and vanilla extract until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese).
Roll into small balls and place on wax-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 45 minutes.

Line two cookie sheets with wax paper. In double-boiler, melt white chocolate. Dip balls and coat thoroughly. With slotted spoon, lift balls out of chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet. In separate double boiler, melt milk chocolate. Using a fork, drizzle milk chocolate over balls. Let cool. Store in airtight container, in refrigerator or freezer.
