Oreo Truffles: I told you this wasn't a health blog.

Originally these were called "oreo balls" but, call me immature, but I don't care for saying balls that much. I don't know why. I am like a 14-year-old, boy. I know. But Jana gave the correct name, "Oreo Truffles."

These are one of the most spectacular things ever. My mom has been making these for years and at times I get tired of the same dessert over and over again, but these remain consistently yummy throughout. Oh and the Kit Kat Bars are amazing.  I haven't done the Girl Scout Cookie recipe yet.


1 package of double stuff oreos
1 8oz package of cream cheese
2 tsp vanilla
white bark coating

Put the Oreos in a food processor. I am sure that you can just crush them up really good with a rolling pin or something.

Crushed Oreos are Crushed

Mix crushed oreos in with sofetened cream cheese. True Story: To soften cream cheese I often put the whole package, foil and all, in the toaster oven and set it for medium toast. It comes out perfectly and you don't have to wait forever for it to "soften."

Mix that bad boy up and then add your vanilla. Then take this and put it in the freezer for about an hour. If you let it harden a little, it's less of a mess to roll them later.

Afer an hour goes by, take it out of the freezer and roll it into 1-inch or so balls. I like to vary the size of mine because some people like large ones and some people like small, whatever.

Then after you roll them out put them on a lined cookie sheet and freeze for a good while. I usually try and freeze overnight but you could get away with a couple of hours in a pinch.

Take them out of the freezer and then melt your bark coating. Some people like to mess around with double boilers and all that, not me. I straight-up microwave that joker. I can't stress enough to *FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE PACKAGE* Sorry. I didn't mean to yell, but you needed to hear that. If you over-heat the bark coating it's going to burn and not be worth a damn. Follow the microwave instructions exactly. You are welcome!

That's  how it should look.

Take the frozen ball and dip them into the bark coating, and don't lollygag. The more the balls start to melt, the more of  a pain in the ass they are to dip so seriously do them as quickly as you can. With your leftover coating, you might could do some pretzels, like the ones above.

I usually store mine in the fridge. My mom keeps them in the freezer and that way they keep forever. They also freeze well.  The ones I made I don't think made it to the freezer so either way. WINNING.

There you have it guys, Oreo Truffles aka balls. Along with super yummy Homemade KitKat Bars.

I love these things even though I don't really like Oreos (they taste like burned chocolate to me). Also, I love the CS WINNING reference. I laugh every time I see or hear it.
