Back in 2009 I made 175 Oreo Truffles for a church event. I shared the recipe here. I like to call them little balls of goodness. I decided to change that recipe up a little bit for today’s post and make an Easter version.
Instead of the regular chocolate Oreo I used the Golden Oreos which are my personal favorite. The recipe is simple – only two ingredients, Oreos and cream cheese. The Oreos are crushed up and blended into the cream cheese. I then formed round little balls of goodness.
Because Easter is coming I thought they would be cute as little egg shapes of goodness so I just formed them into an egg shape by pushing one end of the dough into a soft point.
Then pop them back in the refrigerator to let them firm up. Then they are ready to dip into some white chocolate flavored coating for some extra goodness. After they have firmed up in the freezer I put a toothpick into each one to use as I dip them in the melted chocolate. I like using Wilton Candy Melts.
After dipping truffle into chocolate gently tap it on the side of the glass so allow excess chocolate to drip off. Then place it on a parchment covered sheet. Allow the chocolate to set up and then gently remove the tooth pick. You will be left with a small hole in the truffle. Use your toothpick and some of the left over chocolate to fill the hole. If it doesn’t look perfect don’t worry you are going to be drizzling more chocolate over the top.
I then melted some different colored Wilton Melts and put them into a freezer zipper bag (the freezer ones are heavier and the chocolate is hot). Snip a small hole in the corner of the bag.
Then drizzle away. I also add some colored sprinkles because everything is better with sprinkles.
Keep them refrigerated until ready to serve. I think they taste better chilled than at room temperature.
A fun little treat to add to your Easter baskets, serve at your Easter Brunch or give to your neighbors as a treat.
