Oreo Truffles

Chocolate... need I say more?

The Good:  If you are a chocolate lover, these are for you!
The Bad: These are almost too chocolaty.

Suggestions before starting:
Use quality chocolate!  Cheaper chocolate is not good for dipping.
I wanted mint chocolate but it was not available so we added a bit of mint extract while melting the chocolate.
In order to evenly melt the chocolate it is common to use a double boiler.  Dave and I do not have a double boiler yet so we created our own... more ghettofied version by using 1 pot on the bottom with water and 1 on top with the chocolate.

Ghettofied double boiler

  1. Crush oreos by hand or with a food processor.
  2. Mix in cream cheese until evenly mixed.
  3. Roll cookie mix into balls of preferred size and place in refrigerator to cool and harden.
  4. Once balls have hardened, melt chocolate using the stove or microwave and dip balls quickly in the chocolate.
