30peanut butter Oreos
8ozwhite chocolate chips
2tablespoonscreamy peanut butter
8ozmilk chocolate chipsor chocolate variety of your choice
Place Oreos in a food processor and pulse until they form crumbs. Add in the cream cheese and pulse until a dough like ball forms. Roll mixture into 1 tablespoon-sized balls, I use a cookie scoop for this. Place on a parchment paper lined sheet tray. Place in freezer for 4 hours, up to overnight.
Place the white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on half power in 30-second intervals until melted, stirring with a spoon in between intervals. Add in the peanut butter and stir in until everything is smooth. Dip truffles one at a time into the mixture, tapping off the excess and place back on the parchment paper lined sheet. If the peanut butter coating does not harden within a few minutes then pop them back in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Melt the chocolate chips by placing them into a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on half power in 30 seconds intervals until melted, stirring in between.
Dip the bottom of the truffles into the melted milk chocolate. Place back on the sheet tray to harden.
You can use any kind of chocolate chips that you like we like milk, but you can use semi-sweet or even dark chocolate.
The filling needs time to set up so let it chill for at least 4 hours if not overnight, this is an important step so when you dunk them they will not melt and fall apart.
To dip I like to use a fork or slotted spoon to lower the truffle into the peanut butter mixture and roll it around. You can also use a tooth pick inserted into the top!
If you cant find peanut butter Oreos you can use regular Oreos you just won't have as much peanut butter flavor.
