QUESTION: When making these Oreo truffle balls, do you need to have some type of gloves on so they don't stick to you? I've heard to use kitchen latex gloves, but I cannot find them in any of the stores so I've been hesitant to make these yet.

Any suggestions?

1 8 oz pkg of cream cheese.

Put Oreos in food processor and make crumbs-add cream cheese. Shape into 42 (1-inch) balls.

DIP balls in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet.

REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm. Store any leftover truffles in tightly covered container in refrigerator.

When I made them, I didn't have a problem with them sticking to me at all. I DID have a problem trying to mix the processed cookies in with the cream cheese (I tried using a spoon and then my hands and then finally the mixer. MIXER WINS!!!) and getting that off my hands was a fun ol mess! But after they are mixed together, didn't have a problem. I am making 3 batches (hopefully!) this week and for that, I bought some latex gloves (like surgeons use) from Target in the mop and broom and kitchen gloves aisle. I normally use them when I dust because blech, I don't like stuff on my hands and I figure this way I don't actually have to touch the goop, hahahaha. But no, no problem cleaning them off your hands. It's like play-doh....delicious play-doh. HAHAHA It all wants to stay together.
Hope this helps!! I am making mint ones (mint Oreos and I found Andes mint baking chips at Target!!! WOOT WOOT!!), peanut butter ones (pb oreos and Reese's PB chips) and then regular ones.

If it is too tacky just put it in the frig for a while before making into balls.

When I made them they did stick to me, and I did have them in the fridge before I formed them into balls. I don't have latex gloves laying around the house, so I put sandwich baggies on my hands and used those as gloves. Really helped!!!

That's what I had my girls do when we were making Rice Krispie Treats -- and I gave them a spritz with cooking spray. Worked like a charm!

Our family likes them also but I had forgotten to make them until today. I had to go to the store to get the Hershey hugs and they were out of them. They had some Candy Cane kisses so I grabbed those. They taste great!

Just made these tonight and thought about this thread. It was quick, easy and yummy:

Rocky Road – Peanut Butter Candy Cups

11 oz pkg peanut butter and milk chocolate chips
2T creamy peanut butter
1 cup crispy rice cereal
1 cup miniature marshmallows
¾ cup unsalted peanuts, chopped

Microwave peanut butter and milk chocolate chips in a large glass bowl on high for one to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in peanut butter until well blended.

Stir in rice cereal, marshmallows and chopped peanuts. Spoon mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls evenly into miniature paper candy cups. Chill one hour or until firm. Makes about 3 dozen.

Ya, I know it's a few months away but it doesn't hurt to plan ahead, right? I think next time I make those I will try semi sweet chocolate. Nothing wrong with the PB & milk chocolate, though.
