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!

1 C. (14 oz.) Sweetened Condensed Milk

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!
