  He joined us on Fox 2 News Morning to share a few recipes.

1 pack Oreo cookies 
1 8oz cream cheese (cold)
2 tbsp strawberry jam
1 package semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp shortening

Crush Oreo cookies in food processor until blended completely (no chunks).
With your hand , mix in the cream cheese  and jam until dough forms.
Roll dough into 2 Inch balls and set in freezer for 30 minutes to an hour.

Melt chocolate and shortening in a separate bowl. (The shortening helps thin the chocolate to make dipping easier.)
Dip truffles and garnish with what you desire, set on parchment in fridge for 2-3 hours, overnight is best! Enjoy!
