Every year on my boyfriend’s birthday, I decide to bake for him. Last year I made chocolate chip whoopie pies, or chipwiches, and brought them into his work for him and all of his coworkers. They loved them, so this year I decided to bake again. While he wasn’t working on the day of his birthday, he had to work the day before… so I thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to bring in something sweet! I suggested several desserts, but Sal decided on the Oreo Truffles after I showed him a picture of what they could look like. I dropped them off; I hadn’t even gotten home yet and I was sent a picture message of the platter with nothing on it. My boyfriend and his coworkers devoured them before I could even make the 5 minute trip home. Talk about a proud moment for me! They were super easy to make – only needing 3 ingredients – and definitely, according to him and his coworkers, really really good!
What’s great about this recipe is that you can change the flavor of the Oreos and chocolate that you use!
No Bake Oreo Truffles
yield: approximately 28 oreo truffles
1 package of Double Stuffed Oreos
4 oz of Softened Cream Cheese (you can use up to 8 oz, depending on the consistency you want.)
White Chocolate Squares for dipping (you can use milk, dark, etc.)
1. Chop Oreos up finely in a food processor, or put in plastic bag and crush with your fist or a rolling pin. Set aside some of the finely crushed Oreos for garnish later, less than 1/4 cup.
2. With hands, or spoon, mash softened cream cheese and crushed Oreos until well combined.
3. Roll into 1″ balls and place on a wax covered cookie sheet. Put in the freezer for 15 minutes.
4. While balls are in freezer, melt chocolate in a heat-proof pot or bowl over a pot of boiling water (keep on low to prevent burning).
5. Pull the Oreo truffles out of the freezer and dip into chocolate. Immediately, garnish with reserved Oreo crumbs before the chocolate sets.
6. Let chocolate set in the refrigerator for a few minutes. Eat and enjoy!
