Simplicity is my word of the month. With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I’ve got to keep my recipes super easy and simple to make. These Oreo Truffles are just that. They only take a few ingredients, there is no baking required, and the outcome is pure Oreo heaven!
1 package Oreo Cookies (36 count)
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips + 6 oz milk chocolate chips, melted together
In a food processor, add all cookies and grind until they become coarse crumbs. If you do not have a food processor, you can put the cookies in a sealed plastic bag and crush using a rolling pin. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cookie crumbs for garnish. In a large bowl, add cream cheese and the remaining cookie crumbs. With a back of a spoon mix the cream cheese and the cookie crumbs until they are well combined; you can also use your hands here if you would like.
Using a 1-inch cookie scoop, make approximately 48 balls. Place on a waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Put in the refrigerator for about 1 hour or until firm. Take out and dip each ball into the melted chocolate and place on a clean waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle the tops with reserved cookie crumbs. Place back into the refrigerator until chocolate is set, about 1 hour.
These delicious little Oreo Truffles are the perfect treat to take to a party or give as a holiday gift. Or if you’ve got Oreo lovers in your household, these tasty morsels will disappear in no time!
