Too Damn Easy

I’m going to visit my former bosses today!  I loved working for these guys, but I didn’t really like practicing family law.  So I quit.  I still try to see them every once in a while, but it’s been way too long since my last visit.  In order to stay on their good sides, I decided it would be best to bring a treat in for the office…you know, just in case I need a reference.

Last night, I made No Bake Oreo Truffles (yet another recipe I found on Pinterest).  This was a big mistake because (1) I love Oreos and (2) I have no self-control.

Anyway, I couldn’t resist making these because the recipe was too damn easy.  You only need 3 ingredients.

Just throw a bunch of Oreos into a food processor (my new favorite kitchen accessory) and grind away.

I poured the ground up Oreos into a bowl, added 4 ounces of cream cheese and mixed it all together by hand.  Then I rolled out some balls.

Does it bother anyone else that the ball on the left is totally out of line?

I put all the balls in the freezer for a few minutes while I melted the almond bark.

If you can’t find almond bark you can use candy melts or any similar chocolate coating.  I found almond bark at Walmart and I know you can find candy melts at Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts and Michaels.

After I melted the chocolate, I coated the balls and set them on parchment paper.

I guess I could decorate them with more ground up Oreos, but I kind of like the simple and pretty all-white look.

Not surprisingly, G was ready to do a taste test.

These are so good! 

G ate four truffles. I had one.  I would have had more, but I’d already eaten a million Oreos for dinner.  Note to self: don’t buy the family size box of Oreos ever again.

    When I saw the title of the post, I thought it was about you being a whore. I was really disappointed it was some dumb recipe instead.

    I just made these for St. Pat’s with the mint oreos and actually wasn’t thrilled with them. Maybe I need to try again!

    Those truffles were so good, yet so bad for my diet!
