Some time ago, my sister, Tammy, and I were talking about cake balls, which are a perfect circle of sweet goodness, and she said she makes “Oreo Truffles” instead of cake balls. I am not too keen on using super processed, store bought cookies any more than I have to (and I rarely “have” to), so I filed that info away for later.
Fast forward to a week or so ago when I attempted and failed to make a chocolate ganache (see post here). I signed up to help with dessert for a church women’s swim party, and I thought that chocolate truffles filled with ganache would be perfect. And they probably would be… If I could make ganache, which obviously I can’t!
Normally, this would not be a big deal. I try something, I fail, no biggie. This time, I committed to bring something delicious before I’d even tried it! Oops. BIG OOPS!
Thankfully, I remembered my sister’s “Oreo Truffles.” I made them this weekend, and I was pleasantly surprised. They were quite delicious! And they were so easy! Want to know how you can pollute your body with super processed Oreo truffle goodness? Here’s the recipe.
1 package of Oreos (about 30 oreos, any flavor)
1 package of cream cheese (8 oz)
dipping chocolate (or 1 c chocolate chips + 1 T shortening)
Crush Oreo cookies. (A food processor makes this fast and easy!) Stir in cream cheese (or add to the food processor and pulse until combined). Roll into balls and put in freezer until hard. Dip in melted chocolate and return to freezer. For best taste, let flavors combine for 12 hours before serving.
Here’s my photo step-by-step.
This is not healthy, but it sure is yummy!
