After we are done with our schoolwork for the day the girls and I have been enjoying creating quite a variety of Christmas candy and treats.
Every year we try several new recipes while still making all of our favorites.
On the list of candy that gets made every year is a surprisingly simple and delicious truffle. I'm not sure truffle is the correct name for them, but since that was what they were called in the recipe I used we have kept the name.
I start by dumping an entire pack of Oreos into the food processer to reduce them to nice even crumbs, and then add an eight ounce package of softened cream cheese and mix it up.
I refrigerate it for several hours and then using a teaspoon measure I scoop out bits of the Oreo mixture and form into little balls which I then dip into melted chocolate.
I like using the mint filled Oreos, but any flavor will work. Delectable little treats that look a lot more difficult to make than what they are.
