Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 48 truffles
- 1 package Oreos golden/vanilla
- 1 package Candi Quik melting chocolate
- 8 oz cream cheese softened
- 1/2 cup Craisins dried cranberries
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 1 tsp orange zest
Using a food processor, crush the oreos until they are finely chopped.
Add the softened cream cheese to the oreos and combine in the food processor. Add the lemon and orange zest.
Add in the half Craisins and mix well. The remaining Craisins will be used on top of truffles.
Using a small scoop, make 1 inch balls and place on a wax paper base. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
While the truffle balls are in the refrigerator, melt the chocolate either in the microwave in microwave safe bowl or using the double broiler method. Set aside one small block of chocolate to melt at the end for the drizzle.
Dip each truffle into the chocolate with two forks and gently shake off the excess chocolate. Lay each dipped chocolate onto the wax paper.
Melt the last block of chocolate for the drizzling in the same manner as above.
Cut a very small slit into a gallon zip lock bag. Pour chocolate into the zip lock back and drizzle back and forth on top of the truffles.
Add the remaining Craisins to the top quickly as the Candi Quik dries fast.
You can substitute other melting chocolate for the Candi Quik. Just always melt slowly so as to not burn the chocolate.
Make sure the cream cheese is softened or it will not mix well with the cookie crumbs.
