- Place 6 Oreos in a food processor and process until all you have is fine crumbs. If you don’t have a food processor, you can place them in a sealable plastic bag and smash with a meat tenderizer or anything else that you have handy. Set these Oreo crumbs aside in a small bowl.
- Process or otherwise crumble remaining Oreos in the same manner and combine with cream cheese in a large bowl. *Note: it may look like it’s never going to mix together, but trust me, it will! If you’re not afraid to do so, use your hands – it works a lot better! Oh, come on…you know you like the feeling of goop between your fingers!
- Roll Oreo mixture into about 40 balls, each about an inch in diameter.
- Melt chocolate chips in a medium saucepan over low heat.
- Dip or roll each ball into melted chocolate until covered. Use two forks to pick up each ball and place on a cookie tray covered with wax paper.
- Sprinkle remaining Oreo crumbs over top of the truffles.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Melt chocolate chips over low heat in a medium sauce pan.
- Stir in most of the candy can pieces, reserving a small handful.
- Use a spatula to spread mixture into a thin layer on a wax paper covered cookie sheet.
- Sprinkle remaining candy cane pieces over top.
- Refrigerate until cool and hard; break apart into pieces.
*A word of caution: I frequently make a double or triple batch of these – because most cream cheese packages are 8oz. If you do that, it makes a TON, and you will be rolling out balls and pressing out patties all day long ;-)
- Beat cream cheese, butter, vanilla, food coloring and flavored extract in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
- Gradually beat in powdered sugar on low speed until well combined. Towards the end, you may need to use your hands or a wooden spoon to combine the remaining powdered sugar.
- Place granulated sugar in a small bowl.
- Roll two teaspoons of cream cheese mixture into a ball, and then roll ball in granulated sugar.
- Flatten ball into a patty with a fork, making vertical and horizontal lines.
- Repeat until all cream cheese mixture is used.
- Refrigerate patties until ready to serve.
Hi there! My name is Dana and I live in West Michigan with my husband, Tom and our dog Happy Gilmore. I created this space as a place to share the things I learn along this journey I call life. I work in marketing and I'm a sort of Jane of All Trades, interested in all things nature, gardening, cooking, exploring and learning new things. This blog is a conglomeration of my interests, hobbies, life and life lessons. Thanks for stopping by!
