Recipe: Red Velvet Oreo Truffles

This is another recipe that I found in my local news paper that was being advertised for Valentine's Day.  I've made Oreo truffles before, here, but this recipe was a little bit different.  It uses less cream cheese.  But they're still really tasty, and simple to make.  Below I have the recipe that was in the newspaper, but I used an extra oz of cream cheese, and I had to used 2 extra oz of the white chocolate.  

18 Red Velvet Oreo Cookies
3 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese 
6 oz Baker's White Chocolate 
2 oz Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate 


Crush up the red velvet Oreo's with the cream cheese.  It's easiest to use the back of a spoon. 

Next roll the Oreo cream cheese mix into 20 1 in balls, and place on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Then put them into the freezer for 10 minutes.  

While the balls are in the freezer, melt the white chocolate in the microwave.  

Take the balls out of the freezer.  Roll one ball at a time in the white chocolate mix and place back onto the baking sheet. 

When the white chocolate has firmed up, melt the 2 oz of semi-sweet chocolate, place in a plastic bag, cut the corner of the bag, and then drizzle the chocolate all over the balls.  

Keep in the fridge until ready to eat.
