I had these over two years ago at Mandy’s house for a Christmas Party. The food was incredible and so well laid out and the punch was every so ‘delicious’. Apparently I liked it so much I had quite a bit of it along with a generous helping of these delicious truffles. I had to ask what they were as the taste was so familiar but I just could not put my finger on it. Mandy was kind enough to tell me how to make them. They are simple and every so yummy. You can coat them with just about anything that you like – white chocolate, sprinkles – just put them on before the chocolate has set.
- 16oz oreo cookies (the three row pack)
- 8 oz cream cheese (room temp)
- 8 oz nestles chocolate block
- 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
Use your food processor to grind the cookies into a fine powder. Put in the cream cheese and process until its forms a dough. I used a small cookie scoop to get the same sized balls. Roll them between your palms to form a ball. Place on a silicone (or parchment) lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate for at least a half hour.
Melt the chocolate over a double boiler. Dip each ball into the chocolate to coat. You can use two forks or chocolate dipping tools to get it coated. Place it back on the cookie sheet. Sprinkle your decorations on now. Then refrigerate after you have done all of them. I rolled half of them in sweetened coconut flakes right after dipping them in chocolate. They were yummy as well.
