Sweets for the Sweet

“All you need is….chocolate.”
–As seen on a “Life is Good” tee shirt in Chicago

I just got back from a weekend in Chicago visiting old friends. It just so happens that while visiting my friend Kristina, her babysitter decided to make some very special Valentine’s Day treats with her four year old daughter.
When we got back from lunch these delicious delicacies were waiting for us. One bite and I was hooked! Apparently they are also really, really easy to make. Enjoy!

Easy Oreo Truffles


1 package of Oreos

8oz package of cream cheese

1 package of semi-sweet baking chocolate (or chocolate of your choice)

2-3 squares of white baking chocolate


Crush the Oreos in a food processor. Add the cream cheese and blend until smooth. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Remove the Oreo and cream cheese mixture from the refrigerator and roll into 1 inch balls, using your hands. Place the balls on a cookie sheet covered in waxed paper (you’ll need two). Chill for another 30 minutes.

Melt the semi-sweet chocolate in a double boiler (or in the microwave). Drop the balls, one at a time, into the melted chocolate and coat with a spoon. Return the chocolate coated Oreo balls to the cookie sheets. Chill for an additional 30 minutes.

Melt the white chocolate in the double boiler or microwave and drizzle over the truffles. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
Makes approximately 24 truffles.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
