Some Sweet Love For Your Valentine

Tags: ,

Cookies

I am so excited to say I’ve found another jackpot winning recipe. I have been eying these on Bakerella’s blog and finally got around to making them. She has done some amazing things with these if you haven’t checked her site out yet, Yum!

These little gems are a must try! They look like a truffle but taste like a little Oreo Cheesecake. You can’t go wrong with cookies, cream cheese and white chocolate! Your Valentine will be thrilled to take a bite out of these treats.

It’s hard to believe something so incredibly easy to make tastes so yummy. I know I’ll be making these often!

I tried the same recipe, but with Nutter Butter Cookies. Both are great, I can’t decide which ones I like better. I’m going to try Chips Ahoy next time and maybe the mint Oreos.


Nutter Butter Cookie Truffles
1 Bag Nutter Butter Cookies
8 oz softened cream cheese
1 package Chocolate Bark (dipping chocolate in blocks)
1 square of the Almond Bark for drizzling (white chocolate blocks for dipping)

1. Mix ground oreos and cream cheese until well combined. Roll into 1 inch balls and place onto baking sheet or tray. Refrigerate overnight or until very firm.
2. Melt white chocolate according to package directions. Using 2 little spoons, dip balls into chocolate and place onto parchment paper to harden. Once dry, melt square of almond bark and spoon into the corner of a ziplock baggie. Snip the corner of the baggie and drizzle chocolate back and forth over the truffles. Let dry.
3. I enjoyed mine chilled in the refrigerator, but may be room temperature as well.

Oreo Cookie Truffles

1 bag Oreo Cookies, ground in blender or food processor (filling and all)
8 oz softened cream cheese
1 package Almond Bark (white chocolate candy coating)
1 square of the Chocolate Bark for drizzling

1. Mix ground oreos and cream cheese until well combined. Roll into 1 inch balls and place onto baking sheet or tray. Refrigerate overnight or until very firm.
2. Melt white chocolate according to package directions. Using 2 little spoons, dip balls into chocolate and place onto parchment paper to harden. Once dry, melt chocolate bark and spoon into the corner of a ziplock baggie. Snip a small corner and drizzle back and forth over the truffles. Let dry.
3. I enjoyed mine chilled in the refrigerator, but may be room temperature as well! Enjoy! Thanks for the great recipe Bakerella!

    Hey Jenny-
    It’s Holly (Fulkerson). I’ve been enjoying your blog for sometime now. I’ve tried a bunch of recipes and love them all. These look really good! I will definitely try them.
    Do you have a great sugar cookie recipe (and frosting)? I want to make cookies for Valentine’s Day. I’m looking for a soft cookie with a yummy homemade frosting.
    Stacy said she loves your sugar cookies, so will you share your recipe?
    Thanks,
    Holly

      I found you can get a 1 or 2 pound almond bark at Aldi for a couple of bucks or you can get a larger amount at sams club i do not suggest walmart because its a small amount for a lot of $

      hope this helps

    Jenny, I am a lurker on your blog (blame Cami! LOL). Anyhow, my sister Mindy made these after Christmas and we changed their name because they are SO good. They are now known (to us at least) as Heavenly Balls of Yum. :) I’ll have to try the nutter butter variety though. Thanks!

    Yeeahh! These look so good. What a great idea.
    I have to make something for a Valentine’s Day bakesale, but I don’t know what. These might be good, but maybe not, because of the cream cheese.

    Hi Melanie,
    Your hubby will love these!

    Hi Holly!
    Click on my profile, and get my email. Email me and I’ll send over my sugar cookie recipe. I need to make them soon so I can post them here. I haven’t seen Stacy in so long, tell her I said hello!

    Hi Leanne,
    I found some almond Bark at Walmart and another local grocery store her in AZ. Check in the baking isle, it should be close to the chocolate chips.

    Hi Tressa,
    Thanks for commenting, aren’t these the best?!
    I couldn’t help but to post them!

    Hi Emiline,
    If it’s chilly out, I think these would do fine at a bake sale.

    Hey Jenny,
    I have been making these for a while now and have taken them to get togethers and the variety that seems to go over the best are the truffles made using the mint oreos (I can only get them in a double stuff variety here) with a semi sweet chocolate coating. I sprinkle a few Andes Mint baking bits over to embelish them a bit. I don’t use almond bark b/c I like actual chocolate better and it sets up just as well. You’ll have to give this version a try.

    Hi Jenny,

    I figured I should send you a little message since I adore your blog so much. I found your blog because I went to high school with Skylar Stock and saw your page on theirs. You’ve inspired me to get back into cooking/baking (which I’ve always loved!) and to revamp my entire cuisine! I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve basically printed off your blog and have almost tried everything. Today we are making the cheesecake oreo bites, the PB banana bread (again!) and whatever else we can concoct from the remainder of the ingredients. I’ve also discovered that creating my own dishes can be a lot of fun and my husband loves having more than the same old thing for dinner every night! So, thank you! Keep those recipes coming!!!

    These are just great!! I made the Oreo ones and can’t wait to try the Nutter Butter ones. They are so easy and I had fun making them. I gave some away and they were just raving about them! Thanks! I love reading your blog.

    Oh my goodness!! I found your blog when I was “blog-hopping” about a year ago. I love your great ideas…and these Nutter Butter chocolates are to die for! I was looking for an original idea (not up for baking this year) to give as Christmas treats. I just drizzled red chocolate instead of white. Holy cow! They were a hit!! Thanks for sharing!

    Can I use candy melts for the coating?

    Whilst shooting a good friend’s large Italian wedding, I became fascinated within two older guys who appeared as if two character actors within a scene through “The Godfather”. One of the main problems faced from the wedding photography Sydney service providers is that the clients do not inform them ahead of time what all shots are not that must be taken. Every wedding is several, System.Drawing.Bitmap to become approached using a fresh view, working utilizing the wedding couple to put together a good crucial list of pictures, also as brainstorming tips on the general style of photography they’re following.
