Cookies and 'Cream' Truffles

What you need: 

1 package (36-45) vegan chocolate sandwich cookies (Oreos or equivalent)
8 ounces vegan cream cheese, softened
16 ounces vegan chocolate chips or baking chocolate

What you do: 

1. Crush 36 cookies into fine crumbs with a food processor or chopper. You could also do this by placing the cookies in a plastic bag and crushing them with a rolling pin.
2. In a bowl, mix the cookie crumbs and the softened cream cheese until well blended. Roll the cookie mixture into balls, about 1 inch in diameter.
3. Melt the chocolate. Coat the balls in the chocolate by using a spoon to get some chocolate on the balls and then use your fingers to spread it around. Place on waxed paper to firm up. (It's okay if it's messy, it will look kinda neat when it hardens that way. I coat half in semi-sweet chocolate and half in white chocolate.)
4. If desired, crush any leftover cookies and sprinkle them on top of the truffles.
5. Refrigerate until firm (about an hour).
These truffles are a real crowd pleaser. They taste great and look professional. Every time I make them people can't believe they're homemade.

Preparation Time: 
5 minutes + refrigeration time; Cooking time: 3 to 5 minutes

SO HOW'D IT GO?

To Faunablues, Try using a pastry cutter for crumbling the cookies.  It works really great and you can get the crumbs to a fine consistency easily.

I am sorry to say, but I made these for the holidays a coupla years ago, and they were sooooooooo sweet and are nothing but vegan junk food.

But some may just love them, so enjoy! you are what you eat!

whoa... wait - you mean oreos + tofutti cream cheese + chocolate chips doesnt = health food??  i never wouldve seen that coming..  nutrition labels are so sneaky on those kinds of products..

man... i wish i wouldve read your helpful review before i threw away all my vegetables since i had planned on eating these instead...

i'm guessing next you're gonna say i shouldnt have suggested to my friend to puree these with some melted soy ice cream and use it as baby formula?

As far as I know Oreo Brand cookies ARE vegan.  They are on Peta's list of accidentally vegan packaged foods, and I have read the ingredients many times and they sure have no listed animal ingredients!  But . . . this might just be in Canada.  I have heard that some packaged foods from the same brand name have different ingredients in the states than they do here.  Just check the box :)

I am going to make these for the family baking contest as well . . . looks simple, inexpensive and really really good.  Hope my family likes em.  I am making the peanut butter cups too.  Sounds like a real crowd pleaser.  :)  I'll let you know if I win!

these were great-and so easy to make! my brothers and my boyfriend loved them, they're half gone already ::) I froze them in the fridge while I was melting the chocolate and that seemed to work great. I think I expected them to be more "cookies and cream" looking on the inside, like a speckled white and black look...but they wound up being pretty much chocolatey brown all over, which I'm not sure was a result of some overzealous cookie crushing on my part or what but the texture was terrific. nice and smooth on the inside and the chocolate coating stayed nice and hard. definitely making these again!

Wow, this recipe was great!
The only problem I have had with this recipe is that when I melt the chocolate and add it to the truffles it seems to stick and make a big mess and hassle,  so what I like to do is stick the truffles in the freezer for 10 minutes or so before adding the chocolate to make the job a little easier.
I would recommend this recipe to anyone, my boyfriend loves them and can't get enough!

this happens to me too, sometimes. ditto the freezing recommendation. refrigeration works too, but you'd probably need to put them in a bit longer.

Its the finished product that rubs off.  I wonder if it will set different depending on the way u melt the choc. When I made the reeses cups I melted the choc in the microwave and stirred it every 10 seconds. 

I went ahead and made these truffles and they turned out great.  I used my rice cooker to melt the choc. this time.  I  put all my choc chips into a pot that had handles on both sides and I filled my rice cooker with some water in the bottom and turned it on and my pot with choc chips fit perfectly in the rice cooker pot, and the handles keep the pot from touching the bottom of the rice cooker,  it ended up sittin in some of the water but that was ok, it worked great and kept the choc melted the whole time, i had to unplug it after a while cause the water was boiling underneath and I didn't want it shoot up in to my face or anything but it still stay hot enough to keep the choc melted. :-)

I can hold these truffles and the choc does not rub off, at least not right away :-)  Thank god.

They turned out looking so professional and my husband thought they were store bought.  I love the center but I don't like the flavor of the choc I bought so I will experiment with other chocolates next time. :-)

Great recipe!  And Laur B thanks for trying to help :-)
