Oreo Truffles

Okay, let me get this out of the way immediately: I ate way more than my share of Oreo Truffles! And I made two batches of them. Oh my! Heavenly does not hardly begin to describe these awesome goodies. Halfway between candies and cookies, they are some of the B-E-S-T little treats you’ll ever make. Plus, they’re not very difficult, although they can be messy.

The truffles themselves use three ingredients: Oreos, cream cheese and CandyQuik–either chocolate or vanilla. I used both (not together but separately). Then if you want to add a chocolate chip glaze to the truffles you can use about a 1/2 cup of white or chocolate chips (I used both, not together but separately), plus a little shortening when melting. Squirt the icing over the truffles from a zip lock bag with a small corner tip cut out. That’s all there is to it. I actually froze mine for a week or so and then defrosted them the day I planned to serve them.

The first time I sampled this amazing dessert was for a Christmas party at least 10 years ago. Michelle loved to bake and she happened to be hosting our Sunday school class that year. She made a batch of these truffles and they were the biggest hit ever. No one could keep their hands out of them. While there were several desserts at that party, only the truffles were cleaned out.

Oreo Truffles are not only fun to make, they are absolutely scrumptious. Seriously, if I hadn’t frozen them for a bridal shower I was having I would have eaten them ALL. As it was, I ate plenty at the bridal shower I hosted along with a slab of Red Velvet Cake, Italian Creme Cake and Carrot Cake. Yes, you could say it was a sugar high day. 🙂 After my over-indulgence I wrapped up all the leftover sweets and sent them out to John’s office to eat so I wouldn’t overdose on more sugar. (Easy for me to do).

Everyone who sampled the Oreo Truffles thought they were divine. These glorious treats are spectacular for holiday parties, birthdays, anniversaries, bridal or baby showers, or office and tailgating parties. I’m telling you, everyone will RAVE over them. They are sweetly rich, decadent and just about one of the best truffles you’ll ever eat.

I will make one recommendation if you’re using vanilla bark (CandyQuik), or white chocolate chips. Be careful to melt these over low heat. They burn very easily, so keep the heat on the lowest setting and stir continuously and you should be okay. Give Oreo Truffles a try and you will discover for yourself what all the raving is about. 🙂

Crush Oreos in a food processor. (I used my Vitamix), but it took about 3 batches to do this. Remove about 1/4 cup crumbs to a separate bowl to use for topping.

Place dipped truffles on top of wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle reserved crushed Oreos on top of half of the vanilla coated truffles and half of the chocolate coated truffles.

Melt chocolate chips with shortening. Scoop into a zip lock bag and cut a small tip out of one corner. Pipe chocolate glaze over top of the remaining vanilla barked truffles. Do the same with the white chocolate chips and pipe white chocolate glaze over top of the remaining chocolate coated truffles. Refrigerate.

Instructions
  1. Place Oreos in a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs form.
  2. (I did this in three batches).
  3. Reserve about 1/3 cup for topping.
  4. Combine cream cheese with the remaining crushed Oreo cookies.
  5. (I used a pastry blender).
  6. Form into 34 balls and place on wax paper-lined cookie sheet in freezer for about 10-15 minutes.
  7. Melt chocolate bark in one saucepan and vanilla bark in another saucepan. (Be very careful to use a very low setting for either vanilla or white chocolate bark or it will scorch).
  8. Place each truffle on a large spoon and dip 17 balls into the melted chocolate bark.
  9. Rotate until the entire ball is covered with chocolate coating. Shake off excess.
  10. Place on wax paper-lined cookie sheet.
  11. Dip the remaining 17 balls into the melted vanilla bark. Shake off excess.
  12. Sprinkle half of the chocolate covered balls with reserved Oreo cookie crumbs.
  13. Sprinkle half of the vanilla coated balls with reserved Oreo cookie crumbs.
  14. Refrigerate all the truffles at least one hour.
  15. After about 45 minutes, place semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon shortening in a glass measuring cup and microwave about 20 seconds.
  16. Stir and continue microwaving in 10-15 second intervals until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  17. Pour into a zip lock bag cutting a small tip off one of the corners.
  18. Pipe the chocolate mixture over top of the 7-8 remaining truffles made with white chocolate bark.
  19. Do the same with the white chocolate chips and remaining 1 teaspoon shortening.
  20. Pipe over top of the remaining 7-8 truffles made with the chocolate bark.
  21. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: I ground the Oreos in my vitamix, but it took three separate batches to process a full pound of Oreos.

NOTE: Vanilla bark or white chocolate bark must be melted over very low temperatures or it scorches very easily.

    These are delicious, and never last long in my family! I use my high speed Vitamix a lot, and have the separate container to chop or grind nuts. It works well with cookies, too.

      Sounds great, Joanne. I actually have another Vitamix container, too. I can sure see why these truffles don’t last long. They are so wonderful.
