Christmas cookie season scares me half to death. I'm always looking for something super quick and fool-proof that I can bring to cookie exchanges or give to teachers and neighbors. These are right up my alley... quick, no-bake, and no-fail. Thanks Judy for reminding me about these 2-ingredient wonders! (She has many more amazing cookie recipes on her site if you're looking!!)
1 Package of Oreos (I used TJ's Candy Cane ones!)
1 8 oz package of cream cheese (softened)
Optional* melted chocolate for dipping or sprinkles for decorating
A food chopper and a small scoop should basically be ingredients.
Put your softened cream cheese in a bowl
Chop Oreos. I lined the cutting board with stacks of two then just moved my way down and chopped them up. If you don't have a food chopper or a food processor try putting them in a big ziplock bag and then crush them with a meat tenderizer.
Then I got smart and chopped them on a flexible cutting mat so that I could just dump them straight in the bowl without spilling.
So I used the scoop to shape the mixture into evenly sized little balls
1 package of cream cheese and 2 sleeves of Oreos = exactly 31 Truffles
Then I decided to put some festive sprinkles on them... my girlfriend Kelly dips these in melted chocolate and they are amazing! She used orange food coloring in melted white chocolate to make some super cute truffles for Halloween. So cute, but I was just trying to get these out the door, so I skipped that step!
Stick them in the fridge for about an hour... tell me these aren't cute
