REESE's Mini + OREO Truffles

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser.  All opinions are mine alone.  #UnbelieveableMoments #CollectiveBias


I don't know about you guys, but between growing up with 4 boys in the house and my fiance I've come to learn that during sports season (aka: year round) I have no control over the TV.  First there's football, and playoffs, and as soon as that's over you'd think you would get some control of the remote.  But no, it starts all over with Basketball.  




The saving grace in all this sports takeover?  The food and parties that seem to accompany sports games.  So while Thomas gets fired up to fill out his bracket for the big tournament and cheers on his team to what he hopes will be the championship game; I'll be taking advantage of the better part of the basketball season...the food.


In my opinion the best sports foods are finger foods, or in this case bite-sized desserts.  Easy for the guys to carry in the other room to remain glued directly in front of the TV, and no one can resist a bite-sized treat or four.  




These truffles are the perfect mix of peanut butter and chocolate, a match made in heaven right there, and the best combination of creamy filling and hard chocolate shell.  Y'all, you need these in your life this basketball season.  Who am I kidding, you need these in your life year round.  

Not to mention you have a chance of winning final four tickets. (no purchase neccessary)




Ingredients:
1 package of OREO Cookies (approx 36)
1 bag of REESE'S Minis (8oz bag, already unwrapped)
1/2 cup of Peanut Butter
1 8oz package + 2oz Cream Cheese, softened
Candiquik, Chocolate flavored

**I suggest you go out and get your ingredients, pronto.  But before you do, check your Cartwheel app and look for the REESE'S offer they have 3/15-4/4.




Instructions:
1. Crush OREO Cookies in the food processor (or in a ziploc bag with a spoon if you don't have one), set aside.

2. Repeat the process for the REESE'S Mini Peanut Butter Cups, until they are smooth. *the best thing about these minis..you don't even have to unwrap them to use in the recipe*

3. Put the OREO Cookies and REESE'S Mini Peanut Butter Cups in a large bowl, and add the softened cream cheese and peanut butter.

4. Mix together thoroughly until all the cream cheese and peanut butter has been mixed in well. 

5. Roll mixture into balls and place onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. 

6. optional: stick a toothpick in each ball.  this will help with the dipping process later on.

7. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour, or freeze for 30 minutes.

8. Melt the chocolate candiquik in a microwave safe bowl, according to instructions on the package.

9. Dip the balls into the candiquik, and let the excess drip off.  *I twirl mine in circles by the toothpick to speed up the process.* (if you did not use toothpicks check out The Pioneer Woman's video on dipping your truffles)


10. Place back onto the parchment paper to cool and harden.  The toothpick will easily slide out now (before they harden) if you prefer not to have them in your truffles.

The only thing these truffles need?  An ice cold, refreshing Coke Zero to enjoy with.  REESE's Minis + Coke Zero are seriously the best pairing for a fun basketball party.

There you have it, the secret to getting through Basketball season.  Now if only I could decide how to fill out my bracket other than who's uniforms I like best...
