Oreo Truffles

1 Package Oreo Cookies
1 8 oz Package Cream Cheese, Softened
1 Package Almond Bark

Crush Oreo cookies in the food processor into a fine power. If you do not have one you can put them in a ziploc and use a rolling pin over them.

Place crushed cookies into a bowl along w/the cream cheese. With an egg beater, mix well.

Form cookie mixture into 1" balls and place on a cookie sheet. Chill for 20 minutes.

Melt Almond Bark and dip each truffle into the almond bark and place on a wax lined cookie sheet. A trick to make the balls come off of the dipping form easily is to gently lift them off with a toothpick. It will create less of a puddle and make them look prettier.

Decorate them while the almond bark is still soft and not fully dry. I typically use some of the white chocolate and drizzle on the truffle back and forth. I also use colored crystals, grated chocolate or white chocolate.

Easy Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

These are very simple yet delicious. Easy to whip up for an after dinner snack.

1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg

Mix well with a beater. Roll into balls and then criss cross with a fork. If you wish, you can roll in sugar before baking. Place on baking sheet and bake 325 for 10-15 minutes.

NOTE: The original recipe called for a baking temp of 375 but they kept burning in my oven.
