Oreo Peppermint Truffle I'm on a little obsessed with truffles lately!  They are a cute way to fill up your Christmas goody plate and everyone loves them :)

The ladies at my hubby's office said that these have been their favorite thus far that I have brought in this year.  I would have to agree!  Chocolate and peppermint is one of those combos that just reminds everyone of Christmas.  Make these...they are easy, and they are loved by all!

Oreo Peppermint Truffles

1 (1lb) pkg Oreo cookies
8 ounces cream cheese
(16 ounce) package baking chocolate (I used white almond bark)
2-3 peppermint candy canes, crushed
vegetable shortening (per instructions on almond bark...mine said 1 Tbsp)

Place Oreos in the food processor & pulse until roughly chopped.  Add cream cheese and process until completely combined.Line baking pan with parchment paper.  Roll into ball and place on paper.  Place in freezer until firm (15 or 20 minutes is plenty).Melt chocolate according to directions on package (add the shortening suggested for dipping).  Dip balls into chocolate to cover completely (I used a toothpick), place back on paper.  Quickly sprinkle with crushed candy canes.Let chocolate set and serve.  Keep refrigerated.
