These deadly delicious chocolate balls were introduced to me at a work covered dish, brought by a coworkers wife. I was shocked to find out how simple they are to make, literally 3 ingredients! I decided today was the perfect opportunity to make these to bring my friends I’m staying with in Charlotte.
1 box Oreos (mint or regular)
1 8oz. package of cream cheese
1 bag semisweet chocolate chips
Crushed candy cane
In a food processor, blend half of the Oreos until finely crushed. Add to a bowl with softened cream cheese. Pulse the other half of the Oreos in the food processor just until the Oreos are broken into small to large chunks. Add to the bowl and mix to combine.
Roll all of the mixture into 1 inch sized balls and set on a baking sheet covered in wax paper.
Melt chocolate chips (in 2 or 3 batches) in a double boiler or bowl set on top of a pot with boiling water. Roll balls into chocolate to coat, then transfer back to baking sheet.
If desired, crush candy canes or other peppermint candy to sprinkle on top of truffles.
Chill in refrigerator for 1-2 hours to harden chocolate.
One batch made about 4 dozen truffles, but this recipe is easy to cut in half.
