Make-It and Give-It Recipe: Oreo Truffles

You heard me. Oreo truffles.

Not only are they creamy and chocolatey and completely delicious… they have THREE ingredients: Oreos, cream cheese, and white chocolate. Now that’s my kind of dessert! They’re also really fancy-looking, so you can take them to a party or give them as gifts in a cute little box.

So here’s what you need:

  • 1 bag of regular Oreos
  • 1 package cream cheese (I use the reduced-fat kind)
  • white chocolate: chips, baking bar, or white chocolate bark**

The Recipe (adapted from Bakerella):

  1. Set aside 7 cookies from the package (I eat 5. Then I set aside 2.) and crush them.
  2. Throw the rest of the cookies into a food processor (or put them into a freezer bag and smash, smash, smash away) until they’re fine crumbs.
  3. Mix in a package of cream cheese with a wooden spoon.
  4. Shape into balls (about an inch in diameter) and put onto waxed paper. Pop into the freezer for at least 30 minutes so they’re easier to work with.
  5. Melt the white chocolate by the directions on the package, then dip the balls on at a time. (I used a bamboo skewer to hold them while I dipped them.) While the chocolate is melted still, sprinkle with the 2 cookies you set aside. (If you ate those 2 cookies, though, no big deal.) Leave them on waxed paper again to let the chocolate set up.
  6. DEVOUR. Then make another batch so other people can try a few.

These are so easy to make very large batches of, and keep in the refrigerator for several days. Although I don’t think ours ever made it that long…

**The bark makes the smoothest coating on the truffles, but I don’t mind mine a little lumpy. I prefer the taste of white chocolate chips.
