Last week I was trying to come up with something fun for a potluck at work. After a phone call with my mom I ended up with this recipe. Who knew my mom would come to the rescue instead of Pinterest? (Thanks Mom!) The ingredients are simple, the process is not too hard. Just imagine… Oreos + Almonds = Yum!
What you need is one package of Oreos, one 8 oz. package of cream cheese, two 4.4oz Hershey’s chocolate bars and sliced almonds to taste (I added almost the full little bag). Start by mashing up the Oreos, you can either use a food processor, blender or a Ziploc bag. Next you combine the Oreos, cream cheese and almonds together in a bowl. In the end you will have a dough like mixture. Put it in the fridge for an hour, or if you are in a rush, in the the freezer for like 25 minutes. Next, you simply form the dough mixture into balls (golf ball size or smaller). Melt the chocolate bars in a pot and roll the balls into it. I found a melon baller to be very helpful to dip the balls into the melted chocolate. Place them on a baking sheet and in the fridge they go. After an hour they are ready to eat and they will be crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. This recipe makes around 25 to 30 truffles. It all depends on how big you make them. Easy right?
