Ingredients

  • 36 Oreo cookies finely crushed (filling left in)
  • 4 oz. cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup cherry pie filling
  • ¼ tsp cherry extract
  • 1 package chocolate bark (melting chocolate) 16 oz

Instructions

  • Mix crushed Oreo crumbs (I always use my blender to crush the cookies) with cream cheese, cherry pie filling and cherry extract until well combined.
  • Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on wax paper on a cookie sheet or plate. Freeze the balls for at least 30 minutes before dipping in chocolate.
  • Once the balls have been frozen, melt the chocolate bark in a glass bowl in the microwave for about 45-second intervals, stirring in between each interval until all the chocolate has barely melted and is smooth when stirred. I also added a couple drops of cherry extract to the chocolate before dipping and it adds a little bit more of a cherry flavor. Just be careful not too use too much - it is very strong stuff!
  • Dip each ball into the chocolate and then return to the wax paper until chocolate is hard. (I've tried many different methods and the one that seems to work best is using a fork to lift the truffle out of the chocolate once completely coated - this allows some of the excess chocolate to drip off before you place it on the wax paper.)
