More Quick and Easy Christmas Truffles - Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Oreo Cookie

December 18, 2011

Oreo Cookie Truffles
These are super quick to whip up!
adapted by a recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything

1 package Double Stuff Oreo Cookies
4 oz. cream cheese {not the low-fat version}, softened
6 squares of vanilla almond bark, or white candy melts

Blend the cookies in a food processor in 3 batches.  Reserve 3 T. cookie crumbs for sprinkling on the top later.  To the last batch of crushed cookies add the cream cheese and blend for a few seconds.  Add the previously crushed cookies back to the food processor and blend a few more seconds.  Your mixture should look sticky and clumpy like this:

*If you don't have a food processor, you can put them in a 1 gallon sealed food bag and crush with a rolling pin - messy but it works.  Put the crushed cookies in a bowl and stir in the cream cheese with a wooden spoon until incorporated.*

Roll the mixture into 1" balls {the mixture will seem crumbly at first, but as you roll it, it will ball up} and place on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet.  Once all are rolled, place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, or until firm.

Meanwhile, melt the almond bark in a bowl in the microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted.  Stir between each.

With a fork, dip the truffles into the melted almond bark and then place back on the waxed paper.  Top immediately with the reserved cookie crumbs - the coating sets up quickly.  Repeat with all truffles.

Store in the refrigerator until served.

Makes 30 truffles.

Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookie dough?  I remember waiting patiently to lick the mixer beaters or the spoon when I was a child.  I'm not sure if it was so good because I was the only one who was awarded the beaters or if I just loved the dough.  Regardless, we all know the concern with eating raw eggs in cookie dough.  This recipe removes that concern.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough TrufflesAdapted from a recipe by Taste Of Home
Makes 55 - 60 truffles

1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. light brown sugar, packed
1 t. vanilla extract
2 c. all-purpose flour
1/8 t. salt
1 - 14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 c. miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 1/2 c. chocolate chips {can be semi-sweet or milk chocolate, or a mixture of both - I use 1-1/2 c.milk chocolate and 1c. semi sweet)
2 1/2 T. vegetable oil {canola is fine}

In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed.  Mix in the vanilla.  Add salt and the flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing well.  Mixture will be crumbly.  Add the sweetened condensed milk and mix until well combined.  Stir in the miniature chocolate chips.

Put mixture in the refrigerator for 1 hour, or until the dough is firm.

Roll dough into 1" balls and place on a waxed paper lined baking sheet.  Place the truffles back in the refrigerator while you prepare the coating.

Melt the chocolate chips and oil in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring until completely melted.  Remove the truffles from the refrigerator and, with a fork, dip each truffle into the chocolate mixture, letting excess drip off before placing back on the waxed paper.  Repeat with all truffles.

Refrigerate for 20 - 30 minutes, until firm.  Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Real Food Meal Plan - Week of January 21, 2018

January 22, 2018

If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Foods lifestyle. I actually meal plan monthly but share it here weekly because it makes more sense to do so. Meal planning is my way of controlling the grocery budget (read as a LOT of dollars saved), ensuring there is no food waste for the week, as well as saving...

Simple Living

As a follow-up to “What Is Simple Living”, these are steps (goals) that I’ve been using and will continue to use this year on my own path to a simple, homemade life.  I shared that I come from a family of collectors and that was my first challenge – purging the collections.  It was emotional and difficult at times but I can honestly tell you that I am thrilled that I did it.

So the collections are...

The BEST Deviled Eggs

January 17, 2018

When we first purchased chickens we hadn't thought through the fact that we were 2 people with a dozen laying hens. That meant 12 eggs about every 26 hours. We certainly had no trouble finding people we could gift our beautiful eggs to, but we also wanted to come up with delicious ways to use some of the excess ourselves. I've always loved deviled eggs but when I came across this recipe and...
