I experimented with this and used the Mint OREO's and the Ande's mint baking chips! They are wonderful.. Today I tried them with Nutter Butter's since nothing with peanut butter can be bad! I dipped them in white chocolate that I had melted 1/4 cup of peanut butter with. I tried using milk chocolate chips, but it didn't taste right to me. I imagine there are tons of varities for this if we get creative! I am interested to know if anybody else has tried them differently. also, I use my food processor to grind the cookies (takes about 30 seconds) and then mix in the cream cheese in the processor too. It turns into a mush, so I put it in the fridge before I started rolling them
I've made these several times this holiday season and they are heavenly! However, I dip mine in almond bark (melted) and sometimes melt a little bit of choc. chips and put in a baggie, clip a small hole in the corner of the bag and drizzle choc. over truffles. Other things I know about this receipe: do not use double stuffed oreo (use original oreos); you can put oreos in food processor or blender and chop until very fine crumb; pour crumbs into bowl and use hands to blend well with softened cream cheese; form into 1 or 2 inch balls and place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper and put in frig for for 30 minutes; melt choc chips or almond bark in microwave or in double boiler (it helps to add tablespoon of crisco to this to thin...do not use oil); carefully dip balls one at a time and place back on wax paper to harden. They are Heavenly!
I can not use dairy ingredients in my baking. I can get away fine, usually, with parve substitutions but would soy cream cheese in these just be plain gross?
I made several batches of these. They were awesome!!!! Definitely will make again.
Can't wait to try these, just one quick question. Can you make these as cake-pops? Will they hold pinto the stick? Thanks!
Oops I mean "onto" the stick.
I had these dipped in white chocolate instead of semi sweet chocolate. They were amazing!
I USED PUDDING INSTEAD CREAM CHEESE, AND WHORKS PERFECT !!!!!
This is a recipe from the Kraft food website. So credit should be given where credit is due. Especially if it is NOT your original recipe. I made these for my neices & nephews as part of their christmas present this year/2011. There are variations of this recipe on the kraft.com website. Peanut butter chocolate truffles, etc. I did my first batch as recipe stated, making crumbs of the cookies in the food processor. They were too fine for my liking. So 2nd batch, I put cookies in my mini-chop, nice good size chunks of cookie. Liked that better. I also added left over chocolate icing with the cream cheese.
I make these and dip them in white chocolate and then roll them in crushed oreos before chocolate dries.
Do they have to be refrigerated because of the cream cheese??
