Oreo Truffles

I am in love with Oreo Truffles. It's true (and sad)!

This is hands down, the easiest treat that I've ever made. With only three ingredients, and one hour to prep., freeze and dip - this is pretty much holiday baking heaven. Which is a really good thing, because these Oreo truffles are highly addictive and odds are you'll need to make another batch because you eat every last one yourself before you can share them.

What do you need? A bag of Oreos (or any Oreo-esque sandwich cookie), a package of softened cream cheese, and white candy coating (or white chocolate).

What do you have to do? Smash up the entire bag of Oreos in a food processor or in a Ziploc bag, mix in the cream cheese, roll into balls, freeze for 15 minutes, dip in warm candy coating and freeze again for 15 minutes. If you pause to eat a few as you go in between these steps I won't hold it against you.

The recipe for Oreo Truffles is very straightforward, so the only step I added in was to put the Oreo-cream cheese mixture into the fridge for 10 minutes before rolling so it would be less sticky on my fingers. Sticky fingers kind of weirds me out, so if it doesn't bother you, skip that step!

I would highly recommend doubling the recipe if you have a strong love of Oreos or truffles because you will need to make another batch. Might as well make things a little easier!
