Valentine's Day Inspired Oreo Truffles

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I wanted to share my go-to treats for any occasion, Oreo Truffles. I've made these for rush events and bake sales, and they were always a hit. These babies are pretty rich, so they are perfect for sharing. I've spiced this batch up by making some of the truffles pink and by adding some Valentine's Day themed sprinkles! 

What you'll need:
1 (16 ounce) package OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies 
1 (8 ounce) package PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
2 (8 ounce) packages of white chocolate chips, melted
1 bottle of red food coloring
How to make: 
1. Finely Crush entire pack of Oreo cookies.
I use a blender to make crumbling a lot easier.

2. Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.
Adding half the cream cheese with half the cookie crumbs helps make the mixing easier.
Yes, it looks kind of gross, BUT I promise they are so good!
3. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet. 
Improvised with a Ziploc instead of using wax paper.
4. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
5. Melt chocolate in a microwavable bowl on high for 2 minutes or until chocolate is completely melted, stirring every 30 seconds. 
6.  Add however many drops of red food coloring until you're content with color.
7. Dip balls in melted chocolate. (I use a fork to roll each truffle in chocolate until it's completely coated. Once I'm done coating, I use the fork to help the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl.)

I decided to make a few with semi-sweet chocolate chips, as well.
8. Place coated truffles back on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet. 
9. Refrigerate until you're ready to dig in! 



Bon Appetit!
