Ingredients

  • 30 oreo cookies regular
  • 4 ounces low fat cream cheese cold
  • 6 ounces white chocolate melting wafers or vanilla almond bark I used Vanilla Almond Bark
  • 5 ounces dark or milk chocolate melting wafers or good quality chocolate chips
  • premade chocolate icing to act as glue for rolos
  • 32 rolos
  • edible markers to make your eyes and lips

Instructions

  • Line a large cookie sheet with wax paper and set aside.
  • In a food processor or strong blender, pulse Oreos until they're finely chopped. Add cream cheese and pulse until the entire mixture is creamed together.
  • Place mixture in the fridge for 10-20 minutes or until it is a bit firmer and cold.
  • Roll truffle mixture into balls and place on one on the baking sheet. (TIP: to help with this process, I sprayed my hands with non-stick spray. This helped in rolling without them being super sticky).
  • Place truffles in the fridge for 20 minutes until firm. After removing from fridge, you can re-roll them to make them more the shape you want if they have depressed at all.
  • Heat your white chocolate or almond bark in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Be careful not to burn the chocolate.
  • Dip each truffle into the white chocolate fully and then place on the cookie sheet again. Place in the fridge for another 20 minutes to set the chocolate/bark.
  • Heat the milk or dark chocolate in the microwave the same way as before, stirring in between and being careful not to burn.
  • Dip each side of each truffle into the chocolate, making the "hair line". It if works better you can use a fork for this part, dipping each side and then placing the truffle back on the wax paper.
  • Again let the truffles rest in the fridge for 20 minutes to set the chocolate.
  • Take each truffle and place a bit of icing on each side, where you want Leia's "hair buns" to go. Attach a rolo to each side and place back on the wax paper.
  • Again allow to sit in the fridge to set the icing. (tedious, but cuteness is upon us!)
  • Using edible markers, draw a face on each truffle. I did simple dots for eyes and a small heart for the mouth.
  • Keep truffles up to 1 week in the fridge in an airtight container. You can also freeze them for up to 2 months, removing from the freezer 30 minutes before serving.
  • Enjoy!
