Super Bowl Football Truffles

Andrew had to bring something to a boys potluck Super Bowl party. I wanted to make something football themed without sending him over with a food stadium so this is what I came up - Football Oreo Cookie Truffles.

These are friggin adorable! I almost don't want to eat them but they are too good not to!

  • one bag/box of Oreo cookies
  • 1 package of light cream cheese, softened
  • milk chocolate for dipping (I used Hersey's chocolate chips)
  • white icing (I used the premade, prepackaged one to save time)

1. In a blender or food processor, crush the cookies (icing and all) until you have nothing but crumbs.
Transfer to a large mixing bowl.

2. Mix in the cream cheese until it's well combined and you almost a dough type consistency. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes.

3. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Using your hands, form the balls into a football shape and place on the baking sheet. Mine were about 1.5 inches long. Throw these bad boys in the freezer for a few minutes so they are nice a firm.

4. In a small bowl, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Keep and eye on these, mix every 30 seconds are so. If you over heat chocolate it will seize and you won;t be able to dip anything into it.

5. Place the football on a fork and dip into the chocolate tap off any excess and place back onto baking sheet. Once cooled, pipe on the icing. Keep frozen or refrigerated until served. Makes about 30 truffles.
