Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've never made anything like a truffle before, so this was completely new. I've never made anything like a truffle before, so this was completely new. They turned out heavenly! I did make the mistake of rolling them in to balls and then putting them all in a bowl before freezing them. BAD idea, as they all stuck together. Also, maybe I need help in the chocolate-melting-department, because my chocolate melted fine... but the truffles didn't look ANYTHING CLOSE to the picture. In comparison, mine looked like a 2 yr-old attempted them. In the end though, they tasted amazing and were a huge hit with the family, and I'll definitely be making these for many years to come.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I think the taste is overrated for the amount of money and time I spent on them. I think the taste is overrated for the amount of money and time I spent on them. I mixed everything up in the food processor (Oreos and cream cheese), which saved a lot of time. I had to freeze the mixture for a while to get it firm enough to work with. I'd give the final product 5 stars for appearance but just 3 for taste. I made them for a shower and people thought they looked great but I noticed a lot went half-eaten. If you like gooey Oreo taste you will like these, but since they contained such processed cookies I felt like the artificial aftertaste was too overpowering. In the amount of time I spent on them I could have just made real truffles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! AMAZING! Messy to make and time consuming but worth every minute!Super rich! I double the recipe and make about 140 truffles ( I make them smaller). I freeze the mixture for about 25 minutes and then scoop/ roll the truffles and freeze for 1.5 hours and then dip. I have also made this in bar form. I make a crust from oreos and a little bit of butter and then layer chocolate ( put in the fridge) and then the oreo cream cheese mixture and then another layer of chocolate. The bars are easier but I don't think they are as fun to eat. Everyone loves the truffles at my parties and I always get asked for the recipe( : Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well, actually my husband loves to make this recipe. Well, actually my husband loves to make this recipe. He had heard about the recipe on the radio and I happened to notice the recipe in the Kraft magazine. So, we got the ingredients and he has been making them ever since. Great Christmas gifts!!! He has been creative making them with the peanut butter, mint, and original oreos. Using white chocolate for drizzle and adding nuts inside the filling and sprinkling them on top. He has also used Heath toffee. We just bought the caramel leche oreos--bet those will be fantastic. Friends at work think my husband is a gourmet chef. They say "He can make truffles!!" or "These would go great with wine". We love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were a huge hit! These were a huge hit! The secret is definately keeping them cold!!! I placed the cookie/cream cheese mixture in the refrigerator for about an hour before rolling it into balls and then placed the balls in the freezer for about 15 minutes before dipping them in the chocolate. The main thing is just KEEP THEM COLD! I did use someone elses idea and used toothpicks to dip....very easy. Turned out beautiful. I used store brand milk chocolate and white chocolate chips in place of the bars (to save money)and it worked beautifully. I also sprinkled nuts on some and coconut on others. I loved the coconut ones! I preferred the milk chocolate over the white chocolate. I will make again!

My mother-in-law made these for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and they were the hit of the party both times, to the point that we were all begging for the recipe. She made both milk chocolate dipped and white chocolate dipped ones. We kept ours that we took home in the freezer for a nice little treat. Even out of the freezer, they weren't rock hard, so don't be afraid to keep them nice and cold, as they taste even better cold than at room temperature. I can't wait to make these just to keep a supply of them in the freezer for whenever I really need a little sweet chocolate treat. Great recipe!

Before making these, I read over 200 of the ratings and was nicely surprised when they were so easy to make. I used gloves to make into balls and didn't have any problems with sticking whatsoever. I ran out of white chocolate so I used white almond bark (didn't like) and I used peanut butter swirled chips too and those were good. I put a toothpick in the balls which made them easier to handle when the hardened up. When I twisted the toothpick out after dipping them and letting the chocolate harden I used a little bit of water to soften the chocolate and cover the hole on top, the water also helped when I sprinkled colored candy on top. Wonderful recipe, got raves and will definitely make again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Being an avid weight watcher I thought oreos, chocolate and cream cheese...the guilt alone will kill... Being an avid weight watcher I thought oreos, chocolate and cream cheese...the guilt alone will kill me. So I used reduced fat oreos and non-fat cream cheese. I left the semi-sweet chocolate. The truffles were to die for. No one said "is this reduced fat", you simply couldn't tell. I'll make them again this year..hubby ask if I could add rum..so wish me luck! PS. I used my melon baller lined with plastic wrap to make the balls. After I filled the baller, I gave the plastic wrap a pull and out popped a ball. Someone else suggested refrigerate before making the balls...great idea!
