Frozen Oreo Truffles

DSC_0131It’s the first day of July so I’m doubling up on sweet frozen recipe! These decadent frozen Oreo truffles are the perfect cold treat for your 4th of July barbecue.  I couldn’t find any patriotic sprinkles at my local Target or grocery store so I went with these edible gold stars but by all means, if you have a better sprinkle selection at your disposal, go red, white and blue! I made these pretty big and they’re very rich so I’d recommend making smaller truffles – maybe 25-30 instead of 12-15 monsters.  Here is the just-bit-into-one shot!DSC_0148These delicious treats are number twenty-nine in my countdown of thirty recipes perfect for your Fourth of July cookout.  One more to go! You can find all of the recipes here.

What to buy (makes 12-15 truffles):

  • 12-15 Oreos
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 4-5 ounces white baking chocolate
  • red and blue sprinkles (if you can find) or gold stars

What to do:

  • combine cream cheese and Oreos in food processor, mix well
  • roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment or wax paper, freeze for an hour or two
  • melt white chocolate and dip balls until covered or drizzle chocolate over balls (whatever you prefer, I did a little of both)
  • dust truffles with sprinkles and freeze for another hour or two before serving, keep in the freezer for best results
