Oreo Chocolate Truffles



This one’s for all you chocolate lovers…especially dedicated to my better half & kids.
All you need is just 3 ingredients and the combination of the trio is simply magical.
The below recipe makes around 22-24 truffles…I lost count….’cause whilst I was in the counting process they were simultaneously being wolfed down by my kids.
Thanks to Danielle for sharing this award winning recipe on Foodbuzz.

Ingredients:
Oreo Cookies- 18 nos
Philadelphia Cream cheese ( or any local product)– 150 gms
Cooking chocolate/Dark chocolate – 200 gms

Method:
Put the cookies (including cream filling) in the food processor and pulse until the cookies are completely crumbled.
Add the cookie crumbs and the cream cheese in a medium bowl. Combine until the mixture is a solid heap of deliciousness.
Scoop out the desired amount and form into balls.

Refrigerate them for 30mins-1hour to add to the firmness. This makes them a bit easier to dunk into the chocolate without losing their shape. Dunk the formed truffles into the chocolate coating and let set on a piece of wax paper, about 10 minutes.
Sprinkle chocolate chips or cookie crumbs as desired.

For the chocolate dip: Melt chocolate in a double boiler or in a microwave stirring constantly and carefully dip truffles one at a time using a fork,allowing any excess chocolate to drip into the bowl (not letting the choco balls to be damaged). 
Enjoy.....
