Pot Of Gold Oreo Truffles

Servings 1 Dozen

Ingredients
  

  • 24 double stuff Oreos
  • 8 oz brick of cream cheese - softened
  • 12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Wilton gold sugar pearls
  • 3 strips of Airheads Xtremes Sour Rainbow Candy - chilled to make them stiff

Instructions
 

  • Line a large baking sheet with wax or parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add the Oreo cookies to a food processor and pulse until they are in tiny crumbs.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, add the Oreo crumbs and the softened cream cheese. Mix with a spatula until completely blended.
  • Cover the bowl and chill for 30 minutes for easier handling.
  • Shape the Oreo mixture into one inch balls and place on the lined baking sheet.
  • In a double boiler, warm the semi-sweet chocolate chips over low medium heat. Stir continuously until melted and smooth.
  • Pour the melted dark chocolate into a smaller bowl for easier dipping.
  • Using a toothpick, dip each Oreo ball into the melted chocolate and place back on the baking sheet. Set aside the remaining melted chocolate for later use.
  • Chill for 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
  • Cut each chilled rainbow candy strip into 4 pieces and set aside (12 total).
  • Remove the Oreo truffles from the refrigerator and flip each truffle upside down.
  • Reheat the leftover chocolate from Step 8 and spread a thin layer on the top of a truffle. Gently press the end of a rainbow piece into the melted chocolate and hold for 10 seconds. Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate with the gold sugar balls.
  • Place back on the baking sheet to allow the chocolate to harden. Repeat until all of the truffles have a rainbow and a pot of gold.
  • ENJOY!!
