after making my umpteenth bowl of sinful banana pudding, i decided it was time to broaden my dessert horizons. something equally delicious and easy to make…..sans bananas.

i found it. i love it. i’m absolutely tickled by this new sweet treat.

ladies and gents, i introduce to you the newest member of the silver lining dessert club: strawberry oreo truffles!

I love oreo truffles. They’re so very easy to make, require 3 ingredients, and anyone who tastes one just looks like they’re going to melt on the spot. They make you weak in the knees. They make a soft sigh escape from your lips. Mmmm. I’m not kidding here. I’ve seen it happen. If you haven’t made these yet, you have to try them. Maybe not on a 90 degree day with a broken air conditioner, but soon.

Strawberry Oreo Truffles

1 pkg. strawberry milkshake Oreos

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 pkg. dark chocolate candy melts

Crush all the Oreos in the food processor until they are small crumbs. Transfer to a bowl and stir in cream cheese until no white remains. (I find this is really a squishing sort of activity. The back of a big wooden spoon works great.) Roll mixture into small balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Chill in refrigerator to allow them to firm up slightly.

When you are ready to dip the truffles, melt the candy melts according to package directions. Using a fork, dip each ball into the chocolate, tap off excess, and return to waxed paper. After all truffles have been dipped, return to refrigerator to allow chocolate to set up and harden.
