Problem: Taste buds craving oreo truffles, but no recipe was known.
Solution: Check online!!
A little while back, we were staying with a family who served us a delicious candy — oreo truffles!! Ahhh…. I can almost taste them now… they’re just so good, that is, if you like chocolate. If you’re looking for just the perfect snack, appetizer, dessert, hors d’oeuvres, or anything else, this will be sure to sooth an aching sweet tooth. They’re really easy to make, and best when shared with friends and family!! We passed them around at a family get-together around New Years, and one of our aunts suggested that we post the recipe (and insisted on a picture!). Great idea, Aunt Joanna!!
1 lb Oreo cookies (3 sleeves)
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract (or 1 tsp. mint, or almond)
1 lb. chocolate (dark or milk)
1/2 lb. white chocolate
1. Grind cookies to a fine powder in food processor. With a mixer, blend cookie powder, cream cheese, and vanilla extract until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese).
2. Roll into small balls and place on waxed paper lined cookie sheets. Refrigerate for 45 min. (or freeze for 15 min.).
3. Dip balls in melted chocolate; place on lined cookie sheets.
4. Drizzle melted white chocolate over chocolate balls. Let cool.
5. Store in refrigerator.
Other thoughts on this delicious treat:
~ We like to also dip in white chocolate and drizzle with dark.
~Can also roll truffles in various mixtures: chopped nuts, chocolate sprinkles, multi-colored candy sprinkles, chocolate shavings, colored sugars, etc.
