Peppermint Crunch Truffles

Ingredients:

1 Package Oreos

1 cup Crushed Red Bird Peppermint Puffs or Sticks

1-8 oz. Package Cream Cheese

¼ teaspoon Peppermint Extract

1 lb. Dark Chocolate

 

Preparation:

  1. Process Oreos in a food processor until crumbly. Add chunked cream cheese, peppermint extract and ½ cup of the crushed peppermint candies until combined, being careful not to over-process.
  2. Shape into 1 inch balls and place into the freezer until they are cold to the touch and hold together well.
  3. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Coat the balls into the chocolate by placing them in the chocolate and rolling them around with a spoon to cover. Lift the balls out of the chocolate with a fork, allowing the excess chocolate to drip, then carefully place on a sheet of waxed paper and sprinkle the top of the truffle with remaining crushed peppermint candy.
  4. Allow to set.

 

Truffles will last for a few days in a covered container in the refrigerator
