If you know me, you know I LOVE sweets! And I especially love making sweets because then I can eat as much as I want. If you feel the same way, you’ve gotta try these Oreo Truffles. They’re super easy to make and they taste really good!
You’ll need just three ingredients:
1) One 16oz pack of Oreos – you can use any kind you want, I chose Birthday Cake and I HIGHLY recommend it!
2) One 8oz package of Cream Cheese, softened
3) Two packages of Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted
(This recipe is supposed to make 3.5 dozen balls with those ingredients. I halved this recipe and made huge truffles)
First, put several Oreos in my food processor. This is truly the best way although you can put them in a plastic bag and use a roller or your fists to crush them. Crush about nine of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor, set the crumbs aside and reserve for later use.
Next, crush the remaining cookies
Then put softened cream cheese in a bowl and mix it by hand. (I put the cream cheese in the food processor – and immediately regretted it. DO NOT DO THIS IF YOU HAVE A NINJA! Lesson Learned!)
- DO NOT put cream cheese in your NINJA!
After the cream cheese was all blended, you’ll have a chocolate paste.
Then roll the paste into balls. If you’re trying to make 3.5 dozen then roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1-inch in diameter. If you’re like me and just wanting to make balls to eat while watching your favorite CW show and you don’t care how many you make – then roll them into balls until you run out of paste. (If your paste is too gooey to roll, you may want to put the paste in a fridge for a bit to make it harder)
After you’ve rolled a few balls, put them in the melted chocolate and roll them around (or whatever you need to do to coat the balls completely)
Lift the truffles from the chocolate and put them on a separate plate. Spoon them out or use a fork or toothpicks.
After you’ve got them all on a separate plate, sprinkle on the Oreo crumbs you set aside in step one.
Finally, set the plate into the fridge for an hour so the truffles can harden.
If you can’t eat them all in one sitting, store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator.
