Orange Truffles

At first these are a little gritty from the cookie crumbs, but after they sit for an hour or so, they are a nice creamy texture.  The original recipe did not call for cream cheese, but I found the cream cheese was needed  :)  

Recipe adapted from: Melle Cotte

11 oz. vanilla wafer cookies, crushed
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
¼ cup butter, melted and cooled
½ cup orange juice concentrate, thawed
½ tsp. vanilla extract
4 oz. cream cheese

Combine cookie crumbs and confectioners’ sugar. Stir in butter until the dry ingredients are coated. Some clumps will form. Stir in orange juice concentrate, add vanilla, and cream cheese.

Form into balls.  Freeze for 15 minutes and smooth out rough spots.  Dip in melted chocolate.
