Chocolate Oreo Truffles Veganized!

What you need: 

1 (9 ounce) bag chocolate cream sandwich cookies, crushed (I use Oreos)
1/2 (8 ounce) tub vegan cream cheese (I use Tofutti)
1 (6 ounce) bag vegan bitter sweet chocolate, melted

What you do: 

1. Combine crushed sandwich cookies and vegan cream cheese in a bowl. Mix until it is a blended chocolaty paste.
2. Melt chocolate and place in another bowl.
3. Take a lump of cookie paste (about 1 teaspoon) and ball it, drop it in the chocolate and roll it around. Take it out of chocolate and place it on nonstick surface.
4. Once you are done with all of the mixture, place the truffle balls in the freezer for 30 minutes. Serve cold.
This recipe can also be made cup style by placing them in small cupcake tins.
Source of recipe: This is a recipe that was originally pulled from Oreo.com, and given to me by a friend. I changed the recipe by veganizing it, replacing the cream cheese with Tofutti "Cream cheese" and using vegan bitter sweet chocolate instead of milk chocolate.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

wow...just looked it up myself to be sure.  I'd rather use the "newman o's" version of the oreo cookie.  Seems healthier.

Excellent idea, I used Newmans ABC chocolate cookies and added a little maple syrup and cocoa.  YUM.

HOW did I not know that Oreos were vegan?! I've been buying the K-Toos brand cos I thought I had to! I suppose they'd be more healthy than Oreos, but not by much anyway, and you can't get them at the 7-11! Wow. I CAN'T WAIT TO EAT THESE TRUFFLES

I would double check the packaging to be sure... they are some areas where they are not vegan i've heard

I've heard that too...and the different types of Oreos can be non-vegan (the flavored ones, etc...) My friend actually used The Newman Brand.
But many regular Oreos are vegan! Just not healthy. I think they have hydrogenated oils.
