So…obviously I’m having a hard time in the ‘blogging regularly’ department. I’ll tell ya, when I was blogging everyday, I got fat. All that cooking, eating, and sitting was not a good combo. I’m still cooking and eating, but instead of using my free time here, it’s been at the gym. Much better for my waistline, not so great for this here blog. I hope you all will bear with me as I try to get a routine going again.
Anywho, in other news….I’ve been going through an Oreo ‘phase’. Specifically, an Oreo Truffle phase. It’s madness. My thighs seriously hope I’m almost over it.
I mentioned a while back that I received chocolate to try out, and as you can see, I’ve been loving it. (In case you missed it – Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pizza and Graduation Oreo Truffles)
When I accidentally-on-purpose bought these lemon Oreos, I knew immediately that coating them in white chocolate was the way to go. Hence, White Chocolate Lemon Oreo Truffles were born. Oreo Truffles are ridiculously easy, yet very tasty. The lemon and cream cheese is a really good flavor combo. Speaking of flavor combos…Oreo is getting a little cray cray with their Watermelon, Birthday Cake, etc flavors. HOWEVER, I have to say that the Peanut Butter Oreos are pretty dag-gone tasty. I’ve seriously been thinking of all the different things to make with them, but so far I have refrained. It’ll happen soon I’m sure…willpower never holds out for long.
White Chocolate Lemon Oreo Truffles
1 package Lemon Oreos
4 oz. (1/2 package) cream cheese*
8 oz white chocolate, melted (I used )
*I prefer to use 4 oz. as opposed to 8 like some people do, and I like the 1/3 reduced fat because the cookie/cream cheese mixture can get very oily.
Add package of Oreos to bowl of food processor. Pulse a few times to chop into pieces.
Add cream cheese to processor.
Blend Oreos and cream cheese until well blended. Mixture will be thick (like a cookie dough).
Roll into 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls and place on waxed paper lined cookie sheet.
Chill in freezer while preparing chocolate.
Melt chocolate per directions (microwave or double broiler method).
Dip chilled oreo truffles into melted chocolate. Place on wax paper. Allow chocolate to set.
Are you on the Oreo train? I’ve actually heard some people say they didn’t like them. We are no longer friends. (I’m kidding!) I go through phases with them. I really wish I could go through a spinach phase, or a broccoli phase…
Chocoley Chocolate sent me samples of some of their products to try. No other compensation was received.
