Katie's Cookies 'n Cream Truffles
Check out these little jewels! My soon-to-be cousin, Katie was kind enough to share her recipe for these delicious truffles. They are t0 die for and are as sweet as she is :) Thanks, Katie!
8 Oreo cookies
4 oz. cream cheese
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon powdered sugar (optional)
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the cookies in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs (or put the cookies in a Ziploc bag and crush - which is what Katie does). Add the cream cheese and pulse until mixed. Use a teaspoon to scoop the cookie mixture into small balls. Place the cookie balls on the baking sheet, cover with plastic and freeze until firm - for about 1 hour.
Microwave the chocolate chips and stir. Then nuke for 30 more seconds and stir again. Dip the cookie balls into the chocolate using a toothpick or fork and place back onto the baking sheet. Put the powdered sugar into a sieve and lightly dust the truffles. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm - about 1 hour. Serve cold.
