Who Wants Oreo Truffles??

by Courtney on December 16, 2010

Hubby and I have BIG plans tonight! :shock:

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am

It’s gonna be a roarin’ good time, oh yes it is.

Tonight, we are ripping up the kitchen floor…

Yes, can you tell just.how.excited.I.am??? (Hopefully my major sarcasm is translating easily to you all right now…) :roll:

So while I may not be excited about the labor ahead of me tonight, I definitely AM excited to be one step closer. We’re getting there!

Here’s the view of our new door we put in from last week.

Looks a little different, wouldn’t you say?

So, most of today’s eats weren’t all that exciting…

(Exhibit A – a whole wheat Arnold’s Sandwich Thin with PB & banana)

(Exhibit B)

IMG_6984

In case you’re wondering, that’s a 1/2 of a container of V8 Golden Butternut Squash Soup + leftover roasted zucchini; I took the picture before I heated it up, hence the unappealing, chunkiness. I must say, I’m really a fan of this soup! I’ve had it before, and it’s quite good.

I did say “most” were unexciting…not all. Enter, Exhibit C. ;)

So since I don’t have much left to offer on the meals front, I figured it would only be fair to share a recipe tonight!

During my first Christmas Cookie Baking extravaganza this year, my mom and I were sure to whip up another family favorite:

Oreo Truffles

IMG_6719

These truffles taste so incredibly decadent, people hardly believe when I tell them that there’s only 3 ingredients! :shock: I don’t think I’ve ever brought these anywhere where they weren’t a hit!

Start by chopping up an entire package of Oreos. After dividing the Oreos, simply mix one part of them with a block of cream cheese.

IMG_6717

It will take a little while to get everything totally incorporated, but don’t sweat it. Think of it as a mini-workout…or as an excuse for that extra piece you just snagged out of the bowl. ;)

Roll your mixture into balls and allow to chill in fridge for about one hour.

Once the balls are chilled, melt your chocolate and start dippin’!

IMG_6721

Right after the balls are dipped into the chocolate comes the fun part:

It’s time to roll them in MORE Oreos!

IMG_6720

And after giving them a little more time to chill and the chocolate to harden, you’ve got yourself a big ‘ol batch of decadent, delicious Oreo Truffles.

While I’ve only ever tried using regular Oreos, I’d be rather interested to see someone try experimenting with the other flavors that are available…

Mint Oreo Truffles??

Strawberry Milkshake Oreos??

IMG_7009

Have fun with this one…they’re pretty stinkin’ amazing! :-D

Oreo Truffles

Ingredients:

  • 1- 8 oz. block cream cheese (I use 1/3 less fat)
  • 1 package Oreos, finely crushed
  • 2 pkg. (8 squares each) semi-sweet chocolate, melted**

Directions:

Crush 13 Oreo cookies from package and set aside.

Crush remaining Oreo cookies and mix with cream cheese until well blended.

Shape into approx. 48 (1-inch) balls. Chill for 1/2 – 1 hour.

Dip balls in melted chocolate; place on waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Roll in reserved cookie crumbs.

Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator. ENJOY! :)

**I melt my chocolate on the stovetop, using a double boiler. I find it works easiest this way and the chocolate remains easy to work with.

I ask my supervisor at work to make these for me at least once a year. I don’t allow myself to keep oreos in the house so its a nice treat when she brings me oreo-laden goodies like these!

I’ve never rolled them in more oreos, but oh sweet goodness I want to make more of these now. They are seriously my FAVORITE dessert.

Like Tina I’ve never seen them rolled in more oreos. I love to drizzle white chocolate colored with seasonal colors. Green and red for Christmas, pastels for Easter :)

Mmmm, love the drizzle of white chocolate idea! :)

I recently made buckeyes and had difficulty dipping them into the chocolate. How do you dip them?

I made these last night with the mint oreos….the only problem is I’m concerned they aren’t going to last till the Christmas party tomorrow. They just seem to be disappearing : )

Those sound outrageously good–and truffles always look so gourmet! It’d be fun to try it with the xmas oreos too!

The oreo truffles look amazingly decadent…the type of cookie to make and share with others because they are TOO good to have lying around the house.
