Recipe Recommendation: Oreo Truffles

Un-Gift Guide 2008

These super-rich truffle treats have become a quick favorite for our family, and we know some of you already love them too. They couldn't be simpler to make with only three easy ingredients ...Oreos. Cream cheese. Semi-sweet chocolate chips or squares.

That's all you need.

We've found that it's best to let the food processor do the heavy lifting for this recipe. Finely grind the Oreos in the processor (save a bit for decorating) and then add the softened cream cheese and pulse until it's well blended. All that's left is to roll the dough into small balls and dip in melted chocolate.

It's a bit of a messy process, but we've never seen a dessert disappear so quickly. They also make great gifts – just wrap four truffles in a small box.

For a minty alternative, try Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's.
