Oreo truffles are divine goodness for your mouth. There are a million recipes for Oreo truffles on the internet and now there is a million in one (but this one is the best). For a quick and easy dessert you won’t want to share, here are some tips I learned when making Oreo Truffles.
First up, here is what to add to your next grocery list:
Tip #1: Put your Oreos in the fridge! The ball mixture is easier to work with when it is cold.
I had my 6 year old niece Emily help with this recipe which is how the Ziploc bag came in handy. The first step is to smash the entire pack of Oreos into a crumbly mess. This mess is best when contained to a zipped baggie. You could also use a mixer to do this, but that makes it harder to involve little helpers. Emily did a great job of breaking all the Oreos in the bag.
Next you combine the Oreos and cream cheese together in a bowl. In the end you will have a dough like mixture. For this step I used my hands and found this to be much easier than a spoon that flings Oreo crumbles everywhere. I am speaking from experience here. My hands were a sticky mess afterwards, so this might be a good step to employ your little helper solely as a taste tester.
Then, form the dough mixture into balls. Most of mine were half dollar sized. You can make giant truffles or pea size truffles, whatever your stomach desires.
Last, we rolled the Oreo/cream cheese balls into the chocolate. It was too hot in the pot so we spooned the chocolate onto a plate before rolling each ball in it. When we finished we put all the truffles into the fridge to firm up.
It’s best to keep your truffles refrigerated. I think they taste better when cold. I think my niece agrees!
Notice the Oreo truffle on her face? I am already wanting to make another batch. Next time I want to add some berries, cherries, and nuts to the Oreo mixture before covering in chocolate.
I heart that girl. I also heart these truffles. Next time I will be making a batch with my husband. Dessert – It’s a family activity.
