Peanut Butter and Oreo Truffles


Written 9/18/2010.

What a week.  I’m so glad it’s over and I’m happy for Sabbath, a day truly of rest.

I was catching up on the local news and came across this eye-catching recipe.  Oreos and chocolate.  Enough said.  I’m happy to say this is one of my new favorite desserts!

Peanut Butter and Oreo Truffles

Makes about 3 dozen, depending on the size of the truffles.

Ingredients:

- 36 chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos), divided
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted

Directions

Finely crush 16 Oreo cookies (with a blender, or food processor). Set aside.

Chop remaining cookies into small pieces and mix with the peanut butter.

Roll peanut butter and cookie mixture into 1-inch balls (or smaller, if you prefer) and freeze until firm.

Coat frozen balls with melted chocolate. Roll in reserved finely crushed cookies and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

Store in an airtight container.

Nice! I thought this recipe would be so fitting. I enjoy Oreos every once in a while. Didn't know what to expect with the peanut butter, but I'm glad it turned out well!
