Oreo Truffles

If you want to impress someone with your candy making talents then this recipe is for you. There is no cooking unless you call melting chocolate cooking. These little truffles are rich and delicious and very hard to resists. You can make them with any type of Oreos like, mint, peanut butter or whatever flavor you like. I know the recipe has been around the food blogging world many times but I always meet people who have never had them, so I thought I would share this very simple but to die for truffle recipe.

Oreo Truffles

1 regular size pkg. Oreo cookies, any flavor
8 oz. of cream cheese
dipping chocolate about 10 oz.

Step 1: Put Oreos into the a food processor and turn power on until they are fine crumbs.
Step 2: Cut the cream cheese into chunks and add to the cookie crumbs.
Step 3: Turn on food processor and mix the cream cheese and cookie crumbs until combined into a ball.
Step 4: Roll the dough into bite size balls.
Step 5: Get chocolate ready by cutting into chunks, putting into a microwaveable bowl. Can also use a double broiler. Microwave chocolate on 50% power stirring at 30 second intervals until melted. Drop a ball in one at a time into chocolate, remove with a spoon and let dry on wax paper. Store truffles in the refrigerate. Can’t get any easier than this, enjoy the compliments you will get :).

Your welcome Ildy, do you all have Oreos over in your country?

9 Ildy December 16, 2010 at 8:54 pm

No, we don't at all as far as I know, but we have similiar filled cookie, I think it will be good for the truffles.

I love making cake truffles! It's so fun. I never tried this oreo one – sounds insanely good – and much easier than the cake one – no baking involved!

13 Suzanne December 16, 2010 at 6:29 am

Wow, I can't believe you haven't made these before. I'm kinda proud I found a recipe you haven't made because you a quite the chef.

Suzanne, I have a request. Will you do a post on your blog of a pretty way to wrap the apple bread to take to neighbors? Wrapping it in saran wrap just doesn't do it justice. 🙂

15 Suzanne December 16, 2010 at 6:28 am

I'll see what I can do Cori. 🙂

These are always delightfully received, may have to revisit them. I have done many different flavor combos!!! Beautiful pics, I don't think I could do them justice like you have!

I love these and make them every year for gifts. This year I did regular oreos, mint oreos and nutter butters. You can't go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate.

They are great frozen too.

18 Suzanne December 17, 2010 at 6:16 pm

I've heard people using nutter butter cookies and I need to try it out because peanut butter and chocolate just go together.

You're right. That stuff in the food processor looks kinda gross but the finished product looks wonderful. I know I would love these.

20 Suzanne December 17, 2010 at 6:15 pm

thanks Paula, the end results are very tasty.

wow these looks insanely delicious! I just recently made chocolate covered peanut butter balls, but I think these take the cake! What a great idea!

22 megan @ whatmegansma December 22, 2010 at 3:46 am

I love these! We make them every year. Have you tried them with mint oreos? I little softer and harder to dip, but oh my are they good.

23 Stephanie December 27, 2010 at 10:25 am

Love your food blog! I make these every year and my family loves them! This year I tried it with vanilla Joe Joe's from Trader Joe's and my family loved them even more.

24 Suzanne December 27, 2010 at 4:31 pm

mmmm…sounds good I need to try those out!
