Last year I saw lots of blogs featuring Oreo Truffles. I never did give them a try but thought they looked and sounded amazing! Last week my friend Tricia asked me to help with a big church dinner coming up and she wanted me to make Oreo Truffles. I was so excited because they had been on my To Try list for over a year!
So I made 175 Oreo truffles – minus the few that I ate! Initially I thought 175 truffles was going to take a while but they are so SIMPLE and EASY to make it didn’t take much time at all!!
Some of the recipes floating around out there in blogland have you dip the truffle into chocolate after making them which I am sure would be wonderful – especially if it was white chocolate. But I just rolled them in more crushed up Oreo and they are divine!!
My husband said they looked like little balls of dirt and they do – but they don’t taste like dirt!
I am not going to tell Tricia how many I ate before delivering them to her house. We started out with about 175 but I’m not sure how many were there by the time they were delivered!!
Here are the easy steps to making Oreo Truffles – I will definitely be making another batch next week for Valentine treats!! Hope my neighbors like them!
I have cut the recipe down – this version only makes about 40 truffles instead of 175!
Crush 9 of the Oreos in the blender and reserve for later.
Beat 8 oz. of softened cream cheese until smooth
Add larger bowl of crushed Oreos to cream cheese
Mix until thoroughly blended together.
Form cream cheese/Oreo mixture into about 1 inch sized balls or slightly smaller. Roll into the reserved crushed Oreo. If you are going to dip them in chocolate you do not need to roll them in the remaining cookie crumbs.
Place on cookie sheet and refrigerate until firm.
Place on a pretty plate and then eat!
