Oreo Truffles

If your like me and can’t resist Oreos, this is the recipe for you! I first had these in my higher English class when our teacher made then and brought them in for us. Best double English lesson ever!

The best thing about these is you only need 4 ingredients and you don’t even need to bake them.

Ingredients

 

  1. Pop all of the Oreos into a freezer bag or a large bowl and use your trusty rolling-pin to crush them until they are crumbs.
  2. Put the cream cheese into a large bowl and add a dash of vanilla extract (optional). Sometimes the cream cheese can be overpowering and taste very cheesy, which isn’t what you want in something sweet.
  3. Add the Oreos to the cream cheese and mix it thoroughly. It will become harder to mix as more of the Oreos are mixed in. If you can’t mix in all of the Oreos, don’t worry, you can use these later on.
  4. Take a small handful of the mixture and roll into a ball in your hands. Place on a baking tray or plate with greaseproof paper on it.
  5. Continue to do this until all of the mixture is used up.
  6. Place in the fridge to harder for at least an hour. (I normally leave them for a few hours or overnight if I can)
  7. Just before taking the truffles out of the fridge, melt the chocolate into a medium-sized bowl.
  8. Cover each truffle with the melted chocolate and place back onto the tray or plate. I usually use a fork to hold the truffle while dipping but a spoon works just as well.
  9. This is where you have the option to sprinkle the excess Oreo biscuit over the top of the truffles.
  10. Leave to set and enjoy.
