Oreo Truffles Recipe

For Christmas this year, I decided to try a different dessert. I admit I did not create this recipe. It is floating around the internet and in magazines, so I am not sure who created it.

Oreo Truffles

  • 1 pkg Oreos, finely crushed (including white part of cookie)
  • 1  8 oz block of softened cream cheese
  • white or milk chocolate baker’s chocolate/almond bark (I used an entire 1 lb package and 2 squares from another package.)
  1. Crush Oreos. I put mine in a gallon size ziploc bag and crushed them using a rolling pin.  I’m sure this would be much easier with a food processor.
  2. Add crushed Oreos and softenened cream cheese to a medium sized mixing bowl.  Use a hand mixer to blend together well.  You will need to  pull the Oreo batter out of the beaters a few times.
  3. Shape Oreo mix into small balls. 
  4. Microwave chocolate for about 2 1/2 minutes or until the chocolate is melted.  You’ll need to stir the chocolate throughout the heating process.
  5. Dip into melted chocolate and place on waxed paper covered cookie sheet.  (I found it is easiest to dip the truffles into a bowl of chocolate and use forks to pull them out of the chocolate.)
  6. Sprinkle truffles with sprinkles, crushed cookies, or swirl on a different color of melted chocolate.
  7. Refrigerate or freeze until firm.  Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container.

 You can find almond bark in the baking section of grocery stores or you can use meltable candy chocolate found at craft stores such as Michaels.

Enjoy!
