For the favors for the bridal shower, I made Hershey Kiss shaped oreo truffles. I saw it on Bakerella a while back and knew I absolutely had to make them for Jenny’s wedding somehow, even if it was only for us at home. Once I started planning the shower, that was the first thing I had on my list of things to make.
Each little banner had something different on it, such as Jenny & Mark, 6-17-11; We love you, Jenny!; Bride To Be; The Future Mrs. Mark Bernardo; 6-17-11. These took a while to do, with three for each person (I made enough for 28 favors), but it was worth it. I love oreo truffles. SO rich – perfect for chocolate lovers.
I put three each into cute little bags from Wilton and tied another little banner around them.
The place setting!
Oreo Kiss Truffles
1 package oreo cookies (all but 7 cookies)
1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 package bittersweet chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli’s double chocolate baking chips)
In a food processor (or large plastic bag), crush up the oreos until they are fine crumbs. Stir in the softened cream cheese and mix until fully combined and smooth. Using a small cookie scoop, roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Flatten the bottom and form a point at the top of each ball, forming the shape of a kiss. Put the uncoated kisses into the freezer for about 10 minutes.
Melt your chocolate chips in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between (or use a double boiler). One at a time, pull each uncoated kiss from the microwave and dip in the chocolate. Using a spoon, tap off the excess chocolate and let it slide off the spoon onto another wax paper lined cookie sheet. Continue with the rest of the kisses and refrigerate once complete.
To package the kisses, create banners on your computer or by hand and cut them into little strips. Cut square sheets of aluminum foil (about 5.5 inches squared). Place a dry kiss in the center of the foil square and begin wrapping the foil around, placing the message near the top by pressing the foil together.
