Foodie Friday!

Thank you for joining us for Foodie Friday

Today as I promised, we are making truffles!
These are Oreo* truffles and they are "Wandarful"
Made by a precious friend of my parents Mrs. Wanda.
Her Husband Is Capt. Phil.
 We made his crab canoes here.
So as you can tell, cooking for these two is a passion!

Now onto the truffles!

1 (16 ounce) package OREO* Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
1 (8 ounce) package PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
16 oz of candy Chocolate, melted (like almond bark, white chocolate, etc)

Crush the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor;  (Cookies can also be finely crushed in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin.) place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into balls, about 1-inch in diameter.

Dip balls in melted chocolate; place on wax paper-covered baking sheet. If you would like to drizzle chocolate in a different color do so now. As you can see green was used on these. How cute would these be in red and green for Christmas?

Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
 Store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator.

Be sure to stop by Gollum for more fantastic Foodie Fridays!

Thanks for dropping by Y'all!

So pretty! This really looks great and will be something I will try. I would love for you to come post it to Merry Merry Munchies. The link for that will be up throughout December. There's a giveaway:)

These look delicious! And they just may be the recipe of the century! You could change the color of the drizzle and have candy for Valentine's, Easter, St. Pats, July 4th, Halloween.
Sweet Wishes,

These sound very easy. BTW, I have made the crab boats twice and we love them.
