Oreo Truffles

These are really easy to make, as long as you skip the chocolate dipping and just roll the truffles in sprinkles or crushed cookies.  If you are going to go the chocolate dipping route, I recommend refrigerating (or even freezing) the truffles again after you have rolled them into balls.

The best way to crush the Oreos is in a food processor, but you can always put them in a Ziploc bag and smash them with a rolling pin. You can use low-fat Oreos and low-fat cream cheese.  It really won’t affect the flavor, but your truffles may be a little bit softer.  You can also make these with mint Oreos, or for peanut butter truffles, try using crushed Nutter Butter cookies.  Yummy!
