These Naughty Peppermint Truffles are only naughty because they are so sinfully delicious! There is no booze in them so even the littles could enjoy the, if you let any get out of your sight, LOL!
You will need:
1 package of regular Oreos (36 cookies)
1 8oz cream cheese, softened
1 tsp peppermint extract
1 bag of Ghiradelli white melting chocolate
1 C crushed candy canes
Using a food processor or blender, finely crush the oreos (Whole) until sand like.
Pour crushed oreos into a large mixing bowl
Add the cream cheese and peppermint extract and mix until combined.
Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop some of the truffle into your hand and roll into a ball
Place onto a plate or cookie sheet
Once all the truffle is rolled, place into the fridge for 20 minutes to harden
While the truffle is in the fridge, melt the white chocolate
Once the 20 minutes are up, dip a truffle into the chocolate
Using a fork, coat the truffle in the chocolate and then pick up the truffle and lightly tap the edge of the pot to get the excess off.
Place onto a wax or parchment paper covered cookie sheet
Sprinkle with crushed candy cane
Repeat step with remaining truffles
Place into the fridge to harden for 10 minutes before enjoying!
