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. 🙂
Oreo Truffles are divine.
Every bite is so mouthwatering you will want to eat about 6 or 8 of these before stopping!
I made two batches of these truffles. One batch was with chocolate bark, Oreo crumb topping and white chocolate icing. The other batch was made with vanilla bark, Oreo crumb topping and chocolate icing.
Oreo Truffles are so delectable that they’re addictive!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
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.
Pour Oreo crumbs into a mixing bowl. Add softened cream cheese.
Combine ingredients with a pastry blender until smooth.
Roll mixture into balls and place on wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Place in freezer about 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt chocolate bark over low heat in a small saucepan. Once melted, turn off heat.
In a separate small saucepan over very low heat, melt vanilla or white chocolate bark. Once melted, turn off heat.
Dip frozen Oreo balls into the chocolate bark rotating so all the sides get covered. Shake off excess.
Dip frozen Oreo balls into the vanilla bark and rotate so all sides get covered with coating. Shake off excess.
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.
Serve Oreo Truffles whenever you want to impress your friends! 🙂
