Ingredients
  

For the Truffles:

  • 1 package Oreo cookies, finely crushed (or gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 16 ounces semi-sweet chocolate or candy melts

For the Decoration:

  • 1/2 cup white chocolate bark or candy melts

Instructions
 

Make the Truffles:

  • Mix the Oreo crumbs with the cream cheese until well blended.
  • Shape the mixture into football shapes, then place them on a waxed paper lined baking sheet. You may need to coat your hands with non stick cooking spray if the mixture is sticky.
  • Freeze the footballs while preparing the chocolate.
  • In a double boiler (or in a heatproof bowl set above a pot of simmering water), add the chocolate and stir frequently until melted.
  • Remove the cookie footballs from the freezer. Add a few balls at a time to the melted chocolate and roll them around with two forks. Remove the truffles with forks and allow excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl before placing truffle back on waxed paper lined baking sheet for chocolate to set.

Add the Decoration:

  • For the white chocolate, follow package directions for melting.
  • Transfer the melted chocolate to a resealable sandwich bag and snip off the corner. Alternatively, use a pastry bag with a small round tip.
  • Pipe on a line across each end of the footballs and pipe on laces.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator.
