I've started a new tradition where I make truffles around Christmas time. I've done it for two years now!
These aren't your normal truffles, they're actually super easy to make and really yummy!
(I personally do not like Raspberry... but they are some of my family and friends fave so I had to make some again for them!)
This one is:
1 package of Raspberry Fudge Oreo cookies.
About 6 ounces of cream cheese (full fat or none fat)
Chocolate almond bark. (I used a little less than half a package for these.)
Pink Sixlets on top
(The red is just red writing gel stuff... it was actually a really messy idea so I wouldn't necessarily recommend it lol)
Crush cookies into a fine powder. (use a food processor!)
Make sure the cream cheese is easy to stir around, you can either let it set out a while or microwave it a bit.
Stir cookie powder and cream cheese until it's mixed well.
Form little balls with your hands* and put it onto a cookie sheet (I line mine with wax paper)
For easier decorating, put them in the freezer for a little while so they aren't as sticky.
Melt some of the almond bark in a bowl, then dip the truffles into the chocolate. I use two forks to cover them and then put them back onto the same spot they were on the cookie sheet.
The almond bark tends to harden pretty fast, so if you're putting sprinkles or anything like that on them, you should do so right after each truffle is dipped.
So yup... that's it. lol. So very easy and yummy!!!
*If it gets too sticky, you can use powdered sugar to coat your hands. That helps. It will make the truffles a little sweeter, though! These ones got REALLY sticky for me, But I used 8 ounces of cream cheese. It made it really hard to make into little balls, that's why I put to just use like 6 ounces. It's your call!

chocolate and raspberry are the bestttt combo ever. these look delicious!
I actually don't like raspberry lol but my sister looooves these ones so I gotta make em!!! They usually turn out to be the creamiest ones, too.
These look absolutely delicious!
Another recipe to try and they do look as good as the other ones. I will have to have a go at making these, with all these truffles I am eating I have to start going to the gym in the new year or buy a pair of Homer Simpson stretch pants. .
You're silly!!!! I'm happy that I taught someone to make deliciousness hahaha. If you have a favorite cookie, you can try it out with that!!! I want to try to do a chocolate chip cookie one sometime. I think those will turn out yummy
