Oreo Truffles

Brace yourself…because I’m about to use one of the most overused words on the food blogosphere to describe these oreo truffles:

Decadent.

It’s a word I’ve been avoiding since I started food blogging, but with these truffles, it’s inevitable. It’s really the first word that comes to mind when you’re savoring one (or two) of them. I actually halved this recipe because I thought it would be too much for my family to handle, but I wouldn’t recommend doing that. They go fast.

And guess what? No baking is required whatsoever. Just crushing, mixing, forming, and coating.

If the no-bake fact wasn’t able to persuade you to make these, how about this– there’s only 3 ingredients! Insane. They’re bite-sized, too…and as we all agreed upon last time, bite-sized = better. They’re a triple-threat.

I have nothing else to say. Make these today, love me forever.

Easy Oreo Truffles (adapted from Baker’s Chocolate Oreo Truffle recipe)
Makes about 35 truffles

Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) package OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, divided
  • 1 (8 ounce) package Cream Cheese, softened (I used half full-cream and half fat-free)
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted (I used melting chocolate)

Directions

  1. Crush 4 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor (I didn’t use a food processor because I couldn’t find it my family was sleeping.); reserve for later use. (Cookies can also be finely crushed in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin.)
  2. Crush remaining cookies to fine crumbs; place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended.
  3. Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1-inch in diameter.
  4. Place truffle ball in melted chocolate to coat; roll if necessary. Lift truffle from chocolate using 2 forks (this will allow excess chocolate to run off) before placing on wax paper-covered baking sheet. (Any leftover chocolate can be stored at room temperature for another use.)
  5. Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs, or sprinkles.
  6. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator.

    will it get too sweet if i use milk chocolate?

    nice blog you have here mashaAllah!

      You mean for the outside, correct? No, I don’t think it will be too sweet at all since it’s only a coat for the actual truffle. It may not harden as quickly as melting chocolate but I’m fairly certain it will work if you refrigerate the truffles right away :)
