This recipe was GREAT! I made this as teacher's gifts for Christmas. The teachers went nuts over these! Only thing different is the first batch I did use dipping chocolate, but found it expensive and did not coat as much as I wanted. I ended up having to get 3 containers of the dipping chocolate. I made the recipe again but this time I used the milk chocolate chips, large package. Much better coverage of chocolate. I also found that I rolled them into balls and froze them, they dipped much better int he chocolate. I took a toothpick and dipped them. I will be making these again and they turned out GREAT!
I've made these for Christmas the last several years - and they're requested much more! This year, I'm adding Amaretto Nut flavoring, (from candy making store), and garnishing with white chocolate drizzles and little heart sprinkles for a Valentine's Party... AMAZING! Pictures soon!
My 22 yr old daughter LOVED these. She said they were nice and fudgy textured. I thought they would be too sweet but the cream cheese mellowed the sweetness out just enough. We dipped them in milk chocolate chips w/ shortening (6 oz and 1 T) and it was the perfect consistency and set up well. Freeze the truffles and then dip them in chocolate and they come out great. I used vanilla as I was making peppermint patties too and wanted a different flavor. Thanks Cooks!
I LOVE these! I found this recipe last year, but forgot to leave a review for them. I tried a batch of the regular cookies, and then tried a batch of the mint flavored oreos. They both were SOO good, but I didn't realize that the mint kind has double frosting in it. This year, I'll just add different flavorings to the regular oreos. I plan on making 4 batches since they go so quick!!! Thanks for sharing this!!!
Wow, these were spectacular & so easy to make. I used a few teaspoons of Kahlua to flavour mine (I couldn't taste the initial half teaspoon). The flavour developed during the couple of hours I left them in the fridge after dippping in chocolate. I served them at our block Christmas party last night to rave reviews & requests for the recipe. Thanks Cooks4_6 for sharing this keeper.
These were great!! I needed a recipe to send to my husbands office and everyone loved these. They are very rich little treats, not too hard to put together. I made two flavors, one with raspberry and the other with mint. I could not be happier! Thank you for posting!
Perfect for the bake sale I have contributed to at work on numerous occasion. So easy and delicious
These were not difficult to do and the result is a creamy and delicious chocolate truffle. I used vanilla extract in mine. I also used Bakers semisweet chocolate squares for my dipping chocolate. These have a rich chocolate flavor. If you want them sweeter then I would suggest you dip them in a milk chocolate. Thank you for sharing your delicious recipe Cooks4_6!
