Oreo truffles

20130506-100700.jpg

This recipe is so simple to make and is always such a huge huge hit everytime I make it and it will be for you too!!

This photo was from a bridal shower I hosted and I used mint Oreos and milk chocolate, and regular Oreos and white chocolate. So simple, only three ingredients, and no baking! From my kitchen to yours, here you go:

OREO TRUFFLES

1 (8oz.) package of cream cheese
1-(15 oz.) package Oreos finely crushed
1-package chocolate chips

Place one package of Oreos in a food processor or blender and crush to fine crumbs. Reserve a couple tablespoons for topping.

Mix one package of cream cheese with crushed Oreos until well combined, and dough like consistency.

Shape mixture into 35-40 balls.

Place balls on lined cookie sheet and place in freezer for 10-15 minutes.

Using a double broiler, melt your chocolate. To dip your balls in the chocolate there are different methods find what works for you. There’s the method of sticking a toothpick in center and coating, using two forks at a time to roll, etc… Place on lined cookie sheet and while still wet, sprinkle Oreo crumbs, or cocoa powder, nuts, your choice, you can go crazy here with endless ideas. I’ve let them cool and drizzle white chocolate over dark chocolate or visa versa. Enjoy!!!

Bridal Shower Brunch

Crustless Egg Quiche and Mediterranean Pasta Salad.  Labeled each with placecards I bought at Michaels & added wedding color.

Caprese Sandwiches, unfortunately only got one poor photo of these yummies.  They were individual sliced baguettes open faced with slices of tomato, basil and fontina cheese melted under broiler with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar reduction on top.

Dessert table consisted of some antique crystal cake plates stacked on top of each other for height and I needed a large platter for the cookies.  All I had was an ugly pizza tray!  I covered it in white wrapping paper, and   wa-lah… a platter for beautiful cookies.  Truffles were made with white chocolate and milk chocolate.  Oreo cookie recipe. I will post later, super duper easy!

Each table had pictures of the bride and groom and this dessert table had a particularly funny one of them hiding out and eating a carton of ice cream

Beverage station with iced tea and spa water  with crystal and glass wine and champagne glasses with tags for each girl to put her name on.  I had mother of bride contribute her glasses with mine, and we had enough for a pretty table.

Mimosa station with champagne and orange juice with fresh strawberries.

A little tulle goes a long way, nothing says “wedding” like tulle.   I really needed to soften my patio structure and this did the trick.

Since the bride is not a big fan of flowers and she happens to be having her wedding and reception outdoors at a lemon packing plant, I decided to use lemons to decorate the tables. We had a number of these on tables throughout with pictures of the bride and groom sitting in the center of arrangement.
