Frosty the Snowman was one of my favorite Christmas movies as a kid. I've probably seen Frosty, Rudolph and A Christmas Story about a hundred times. I think snowman are super cute so when I decided to make oreo truffles, I thought they would be perfect to make into little snowmen.
Oreo truffles are a super easy Christmas candy that dont require candy thermometers or any other special equipment. You can make them into traditional truffles, just replace the lollipop stick with a toothpick to dip them in the chocolate coating.
Makes approximately 36 truffles
1 package oreos (somehow mine was mixing about 5 cookies...)
8 oz cream cheese, softened
12 white chocolate
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Crush oreos in a food processor until the cookies become fine crumbs. If you dont have a food processor, add cookies to a bag and crush with a rolling pin. Add cream cheese and stir until well combined. Roll into 1" diameter balls and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Gently push in lollipop sticks if desired. Freeze for at least 30 minutes.
Melt white chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave. If you use the microwave, use 50% power or the defrost setting and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between intervals until melted. Dip the frozen oreo balls in melted chocolate. Drain off excess and transfer to a 2nd baking sheet lined with wax paper.
Chill for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator and decorate if desired. I used edible food pens to decorate these. Next time I think I will use royal icing as the markers didn't cooperate as well I would have liked on the chocolate. They worked ok at first but as the chocolate got warmer, the writing became more difficult.
Store truffles in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
