Peppermint Oreo Truffles
Serves: 20-25
  • 1 package (16 oz) Oreo cookies
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 16 oz melting chocolate or almond bark, melted
  • candy canes, crushed, or holiday sprinkles
  1. Place whole Oreos into a ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to crush the Oreos into small crumbs.
  2. Pour crushed Oreos into a medium mixing bowl. Add cream cheese and peppermint extract and use a mixer to blend well.
  3. Place Oreo mixture into the fridge for one hour until firm.
  4. Roll Oreo mixture into 1-inch balls.
  5. Melt almond bark according to directions on package. Using a spoon, dip Oreo balls in melted almond bark and place on wax paper. Immediately add crushed candy canes or holiday sprinkles to the top.
  6. Note: To prevent the Oreo balls from mixing into the almond bark, melt and use small batches of almond bark at a time.
  7. Refrigerate truffles for about one hour until firm.
  8. Store truffles in a covered container in the refrigerator.
