To add to the fun, I brought the Oreo Truffles into work cleverly hidden in the original Oreo packaging and dropped the package into the conference room without a word. This way, my unsuspecting co-workers discovered the surprise when they thought they were reaching for an Oreo. “You didn’t make these…” was the initial common statement, shortly followed by “Oh my gosh, these are incredible!”
- Makes 2-3 dozen
- 1 16-ounce package of Oreos
- 1 8-ounce package of Cream Cheese
- 1 12-ounce bag of Chocolate Chips
- Oil to thin the chocolate
- In a food processor or Ziplock bag, smash up all of the Oreos into a powder
- Mix in cream cheese until tacky dough is formed and make small teaspoon-sized balls
- Freeze the balls for at least20 minutes
- Melt chocolate and a small amount of oil (a few teaspoons or so) in 30-second intervals until totally melted and smooth
- Roll balls through chocolate and remove with a fork, letting extra chocolate drip off edges
- Optional: Sprinkle each Oreo Truffle with some Oreo crumbs or peppermint pieces before chocolate cools
- Refrigerate until chocolate hardens
My Oreo Truffles weren't the prettiest of the bunch online, but they still packed a big punch. I've got to give credit to everyone who makes beautiful cake pops, truffles, or cake balls. I tried once before for St. Patty's Day last year and encountered some troubles. My roommate helped me out and we ended up with many goopy, droopy, less-than-perfect (but still MAGICALLY delicious) green velvet cake-pops.
Next time I try them, I'm aiming for nothing short of stunning!
