Parties are for vegans too!

07/06/2011

Over the course of the last few months, I have been the catalyst for or host of several parties.  One of my friends, Katie Hettinger, has a very famous Oreo truffles recipe that we vegan-ized for our friend Allison’s bachelorette party.  Here it is!

Ingredients:

1 box/bag thing of plain oreos
1 8oz tub of Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese
1 bag of vegan dark chocolate chips
a tiny bit of vegetable oil

Directions:

Whiz the entire bag of Oreos in a food processor.  After they are in a very fine, sandy form, smush the 8oz of cream cheese together with the Oreo dust in a bowl.  Form approx 1.5in diameter balls with this mixture.  Place on baking sheets that are covered in wax paper and let chill in the fridge until firm.

While balls cool, heat the bag of chocolate chips and about 1/2 tbsp of veg. oil in a double boiler (or a solid bowl above bowling water in a pan will do). Heat until melted through.

When balls are firm and chocolate is melted, roll the balls in the melted chocolate to coat.  Put each ball back in its place on the baking sheet and then return to the fridge to set.
