Easy Oreo Truffles

These Easy Oreos Truffles are just that, and you’ll be lucky if you have any leftover after you put them out for your guests! Some of my friends thought these were cake balls, but I’m here to tell you they’re even simpler than that. You don’t even need to turn on the oven to bake a cake for these bad boys! I’m practically drooling just writing this post. Yes, they’re that good.

Heres what you need:

Ingredients:

  • one package of Oreos
  • an 8oz block of cream cheese, softened
  • Semi sweet chocolate chips (for melting)
  • white chocolate chips (for melting)
  • toothpicks

Directions:

  1. in a food processor “purée” 36 oreos (the whole package) into a fine cookie crumb mixture. I did this in batches as I don’t have a full size food processor.
  2. if you have a normal size food processor, add your cream cheese to your cookie crumbs and pulse until fully blended OR put your Oreo crumbs in a large bowl and mix the cream cheese in by mashing it together with a fork. If you use this method, be patient. It WILL come together!
  3. take a Tablespoon to portion out your truffles and roll them into balls. Place them on parchment paper or silpat mat and put them in the fridge for at least  20 minutes.
  4. Melt your semi sweet chips in the microwave in small time increments (so you don’t burn the chocolate), stirring in between OR do the double boiler method.
  5. Once your chocolate is melted take your truffles and dip them into the chocolate, holding them by a toothpick inserted into the top. I swiped the extra chocolate off the bottom with another toothpick so the chocolate didn’t pool around the bottom and take away from the nice circular shape.
  6. Melt your white chocolate chips and use it for dipping as well, or make a drizzle over the tops of your truffles. It feels scary to put a spoon in white chocolate and wiggle it like mad over the tops of your beautiful truffles, but trust me, if you keep wiggling you won’t have blobs of white chocolate scattered about!
  7. Put your truffles back in the fridge to set until ready to serve. They’ll be gone in no time!!! (I used fancy DIY Pom Pom skewers I had from our wedding that I used to dress these up for a New Year’s party we went to. It was very appropriate!)

I can taste these just looking at the pictures!
