Christmas Candy Crowd Pleaser

I don’t know how many people have asked me for this recipe.  I wanted to share this with you so you could take something new to your holiday gatherings!  ENjOy!

Easy Oreo Truffles

1 pkg (1lb, 2oz) Single Stuffed Oreo’s, crushed

1 pkg (8oz) Cream Cheese, softened

1 pkg  Chocolate Almond Bark, melted

Crush the oreos in a ziplock bag and mix in a bowl with the cream cheese.  Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1″ in diameter.  Refrigerate until firm and then dip in melted chocolate.  I drizzle white chocolate on the top to give them a nice look and so people can tell the apart from my other Christmas candy (like peanut butter balls).  Put them back in the fridge until firm and enjoy!

Do you have a dish or dessert that is always a crowd pleaser?  Tell us what it is!

Since I had several people email me this morning about this other recipe, I am adding it!  These are super yummy too! Be sure to read the recipes in the comments below!

Chocolate Covered Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough     

½ C. Butter (Softened)

¾ C. Packed Brown Sugar

2 C. Flour

1 C. (14 oz.) Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 tsp. Vanilla

½ C. Mini Chocolate Chips

1 Pkg. Almond Bark

Cream butter and brown sugar.  Add flour, milk, and vanilla—mix.  Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (optional).  Shape in 1 inch balls.  Place on waxed paper lined cookie sheets and lightly cover.  Refrigerate 1-2 hours.  Melt candy coating, dip balls, and place on wax paper lined cookie sheets.  Refrigerate for approx. 15-20 minutes until set.  Store in fridge.

*I put cookie dough in fridge for about 20 minutes before rolling the dough into balls b/c the dough can be pretty sticky!  Enjoy!

    Lara- Do these need to remain refrigerated?

    • No, I don’t keep them refrigerated unless they are sitting out in a REALLY hot kitchen. The chocolate covered cookie dough balls that I make need to stay refrigerated, but these don’t :) ~Lara
