White Chocolate Candy Cane Oreo Truffles

December 21, 2010

These White Chocolate Candy Cane Oreo balls are deadly.  They are NOT healthy but irresistable.  If you want to bring coworkers a treat to die for, make these!  I posted them last year and they were one of the most popular blogs of the year.  I decided to change the recipe a little bit this year by using white chocolate chips and candy candy Joe-Joes (Trader Joe’s version of Oreos) and here is how I made them perfect this time around!

Serves 20 (makes a ton)| Hands-On Time: 35m

  • 1 box of Candy Cane Joe Joes or Peppermint Oreos
  • 8 ounces reduced fat cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 10 oz bag of white chocolate chips (you mind need a little extra or use semi sweet chocolate for variety which is what I did here)
  • Optional sprinkles, extra Oreo crumbs or candy cane pieces for decoration on top

Directions

  1. In a food processor, grind up oreos until a fine consistency throughout.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese and oreo crumbs with your hands, kneeding until it becomes a dough like consistency.
  3. Line a cookie with wax paper.  Form small 1/2 inch balls with the dough and either put in fridge to harden or move onto step 4.  It doesn’t really matter to be honest.
  4. On low, heat up the chocolate in a small sauce pan, stirring consistently until it’s a smooth mixture.  You can use a microwave as well.
  5. Using two forks or spoons, drop one ball in at a time and coat with white chocolate mixture.  Transfer to wax paper and let stand for 1 hour or until chocolate is hard.  Store in the refrigerator.
