Or whatever you call them: Oreo truffles, Oreo balls, or Oreo cake balls (even though there's no cake!). My friend told me how to make these, and they're pretty easy and taste amazing, so I thought I'd share them! Cheesy



You need:
1 package of Double Stuf Oreos
1 block of cream cheese
chocolate chips, chocolate bark, or almond bark

Makes about 28 truffles.

Crush 3/4 of the package of Oreos, give or take a few. You can do this with a food processor or by hand. I did it by hand. Put a few Oreos in a gallon bag at a time and whack away with a spatula or a spoon.

Add in the block of cream cheese and mix. Use a metal spoon; this stuff gets thick. It helps if the cream cheese is slightly soft, too. Chill the "dough" for about 30 minutes before going to the next step.

Roll into balls about an inch wide. Lay them out on a cookie sheet covered in tinfoil. Then stick them back in the fridge for awhile. The colder they are, the easier it is to cover them in chocolate.

Cover those suckers! Melt your chocolate or almond bark in the microwave or on the stove (be careful not to burn!) and carefully dip each Oreo ball in chocolate. Put them back on the cookie sheet and put that back in the fridge to let the chocolate harden.

Enjoy! Cheesy

The only thing I really had any issue with was covering them in chocolate. You do sort of get the hang of it after a few, though, and there are plenty of tips for covering truffles all over the Internet if you really get stuck. Cheesy

My sister-in-law makes these and they are wonderful! If you can find one, do try pulverizing the cookies in a food processor. It makes the inside sooooo unbelievably smooth.

Sounds unhealthy, but very tasty. I'll have to try this soon. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Fun fun! I've never made them with oreos before, I'll have to try that with the package I have in the kitchen. I usually use brownies or cake, mostly brownies (with rum or rum flavor)

It's easier to coat things in chocolate if you know the little tricks.

I prefer to put things like this on sticks or use a skewer for dipping. If you are leaving them on sticks, dip the stick into chocolate before inserting it into the treat.

Candy coating and chocolate are easier to coat with if you add a tiny tiny bit for shortening to the melted product. It firms up the same but makes the melted chocolate much smoother and easier to dip into. you don't need much, I just add about 1/2 teaspoon and then decide if I need another 1/2 or not.

I like to paint round shapes of chocolate onto wax paper so that when I put my candy/truffles/cakepops/etc onto them so there are no gaps on the bottom.

And of course for drying them on sticks I use an upside down egg carton with something heavy inside as a weight, and puncture a hole into each egg cup with a skewer. They dry/firm up in about 60 seconds inside the freezer and are ready for packaging. If you leave them in longer than a couple minutes they gather moisture.
