Oreo Truffle cake pops!

A co-worker's birthday was today, so the Mr. and I thought it would be fun to try a new treat.  They were a big hit! So easy to make, and so delicious! Here's the how-to....

What you will need:
  • 1 Pkg.  Oreo's (use all but @10)
  • 8 oz.  Cream cheese
  • 1 Pkg. Wilton Melting chocolate buttons
  • Lollipop sticks
  • foam blocks
The last three items can be purchased at any Joann's or Michael's craft store.

Add all but 10 Oreo's into a food processor and grind finely.

Pour crumbs into large bowl and add 8oz. of cream cheese.  Mix with hands until everything is mixed together evenly.

Roll into 1'' balls, just like meatballs.  The mixture makes 24 exactly.  Place on a sheet of wax paper and freeze for 10 minutes.  Take out of the freezer and place the lollipop sticks in the truffles.  Replace in the freezer for another 10 minutes.  
Next, melt the whole package of chocolate according to the directions on the package.  It's best if you use a small but deep bowl.  Take each truffle and coat with chocolate.

Place each covered truffle into a block of foam to set.  You can put them in the fridge until you are ready to serve or package them.

There are so many amazing ways to decorate them on the web! This was our first attempt so we chose something really simple, and due to popular demand we'll make a second batch next week! Check out this great site for more ideas...Enjoy!
