Easy Oreo Truffles

Posted Tuesday, July 19, 2011

I love a good truffle – I make chocolate chip cookie ones every year when I do my holiday baking. So, it goes without saying that I was super excited to try these Oreo Truffles at a meeting of my MOMS Club a few weeks ago. My friend served them as pops with sticks in them (so cute!), which I will do the next time.

These are super easy. Start them now, and they’ll be ready to eat in just a couple of hours. I’ll be making these again soon, perhaps trying a different kind or flavor of sandwich cookie.


Oreo Truffles

16 oz. package of Oreo cookies, crushed in food processor (or in a Ziploc bag with a wooden spoon)
8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened

Mix the cookies and cream cheese together. Form into balls (I used a melon baller for size), and place on wax paper on a cookie sheet. Freeze until set. (I left mine in about two hours.)

Melt chocolate (white or semisweet), and dip the frozen truffles into the chocolate. While the chocolate is still soft, decorate with seasonal sprinkles, colored sugar, etc. (I'm already thinking that this recipe will come out again at Christmastime.) My chocolate coating ended up a little messy. Next time, I’ll use block baker’s chocolate rather than chocolate and white chips.

Chill in the fridge to set the chocolate. Then, try to limit yourself to just one. Or two.


Enjoy! -Cori of Peace, Baby! Batiks

This just sounds delicious, and I think you're right about this re-emerging at Christmas time!

My friend makes cake balls but these sounded so much easier since the cookies are already made! I've already made a mint chocolate batch! DELICIOUS :) I used Mint Creme Oreos and then my chocolate coating was a mix of chocolate baker's squares and andes mint pieces that I had leftover in my pantry. I'll definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing!!
