Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate Truffles

(from Cindy Stutts, Desert Valley Ward)

1 package oreos

1 8 oz. cream cheese

1 lb. "Merkens" chocolate disks

1) Crush Oreos in gallon size ziploc bag.

2) Blend together crushed oreos with cream cheese.

3) Scoop into balls onto wax paper or foil.

4) Melt chocolate in microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes, making sure to stir every 30 seconds.

5) Dip balls into chocolate using fork or dipping spoon. If you want to use any type of sprinkles, put them on while the chocolate is still "wet".

6) Place back on foil until chocolate has hardened. You can place in refrigerator but for no longer than 5 minutes or chocolate will crack.

This recipe will make 24 truffles

The Merkens chocolate can be purchased at:

ABC Cake Decorating and Party Supply

2853 E Indian School Rd

Phoenix, AZ 85016

(602) 224-9796

They are open Monday though Friday 9:00 a.m - 5:30 p.m

Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

You can also use the chocolate that is sold at places like Michael's but it has a waxy taste instead of pure chocolate, or regular chocolate chips but they are a heavier coating and not as "professional" looking if you're using for a formal ocassion.

You can also melt the chocolate in a crock pot and then the chocolate won't harden while you are dipping the balls.

*These are also good made with peanut butter oreos or the "cheap" Walmart brand orange cream cookies and dipped in white chocolate.

  1. Yum! My mom makes these and I think the recipe is about the same. She just uses Ghiradelli or any kind of dipping chocolate that can be purchased most anywhere and uses a skillet for melting it. I like it when she uses mint oreos!

  2. that sounds super tasty. thanks for posting that mom! i'll have to try that out!
