Oreo Truffles. They are one of my favorite sweet treats, and they are so easy to make. I like to put a little holiday color onto my truffles. For Christmas I use a classic red, green and white mixture of sprinkles. You might call them jimmies, or even nonpareils. They’re a fun snack that will disappear in no time. Here’s how I make them.
Christmas Oreo Truffles
This recipe makes 24-48 truffles, depending on how large you make them. I prefer them a little larger, the way I form them I wind up with 36.
- 1x 14 oz bag white chocolate candy wafers (you could use other colors as well, the sprinkles show up best on white in my opinion)
- 1 package Philly cream cheese
- 30 Oreo cookies
- Christmas colored sprinkles
Crush the cookies. (To do this I put them in a large Ziploc bag and break them apart with the flat side of a meat tenderizer.)
Pour the crumbs into a large bowl.
Soften the cream cheese. I microwaved it for 2 minutes.
Add the cream cheese into the cookie crumbs and stir well.
Place a piece of parchment paper onto a large plate or tray.
Use the Oreo mixture to form truffle balls.
Place the truffles into the freezer for 25-30 minutes.
Soften the chocolate. I microwaved it for 2 minutes, then 1 minute, then 15 seconds at a time. You’ll want the chocolate to be melted and smooth.
Place the truffles into the chocolate, 2 or 3 at a time.
Use a form to make sure the truffles are completely covered in chocolate.
Use the form to lift the chocolate covered truffle out of the bowl.
Place the chocolate covered truffles onto the plate. Dust the truffles with sprinkles immediately. If you wait they won’t stick to the chocolate because it will have set.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes minimum before serving.
