Oreo Truffles


8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 package Oreos, finely crushed
(about 4 cups, divided)
1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tbsp shortening

Mix cream cheese and 3 cups of crushed Oreos. Shape into one inch balls. Arrange them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and place in the refrigerator for one hour. Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in a double boiler. Dip the Oreo balls in the chocolate. Sprinkle with remaining crushed Oreos before the chocolate hardens.

Homemade treats are always a good present for anyone on your list. Nothing is more thoughtful than a gift that you made yourself with love. My mom makes these Oreo truffles for me close to Christmas every year and they are my favorite gift. In fact I have already reminded her that it’s Oreo truffle season, so I should be receiving them any day now.
