Recipe from Wishes and Dishes.
-4 ounces neufchatel (cream cheese lite)
-1/2 package Golden Oreos, crushed
-1/4 cup flour
-5 key limes, juice and zest (about 2-3 tablespoons juice)
-Lime green candy melts, white chocolate or vanilla
-1 sleeve crushed graham crackers
Beat the cream cheese well, together with the Oreos, flour, and lime juice and zest. Form a cannonball and divide into 4 equal pieces. Further divide each piece into 3 or 4 truffle balls. Put the truffles on waxed paper on a cookie sheet in the freezer for half an hour.
Take the truffles out of the freezer and roll in melted white chocolate or vanilla candy melts, then toss in crushed graham crackers. Return to waxed paper, and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
These truffles would be an excellent party treat, sweet and creamy with a crunchy candy shell and the surprising and delightful pop of lime flavor.
