Oreo Truffles

Oreo truffles

Oh sweet, heavenly goodness!  I have a rich dessert recipe for you today.  You know of Oreos, and you know of truffles.  After this post, you will know of Oreo Truffles.  I’m talking Oreos, cream cheese, and vanilla almond bark, folks.  Your tongue will slap your teeth out trying to get to them.  These little gems are simple and fairly quick, especially if you utilize a food processor, a microwave, and a freezer.  I used the recipe from here:  http://www.chef-in-training.com/2011/11/no-bake-oreo-truffles.html.  I figure there are dozens of different versions floating around out there, though, probably even versions from the Oreo and Philadelphia Cream Cheese websites.  In fact, what I ended up doing was different, even from where I got a recipe to follow.

*************************************************************

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 package of regular Oreos, finely crushed
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 package of vanilla almond bark (You can use chocolate if you prefer or even get some different flavored dipping candies from a baking or craft store.)

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, finely crush the Oreos.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the Oreo crumbs with the cream cheese until it is uniformly mixed.
  3. Ball up the Oreo mixture by the tablespoon, roll between your hands to make a smooth ball, and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  4.  Place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to harden the Oreo balls.
  5. Meanwhile, in a microwave safe bowl (Glass works well.), melt the almond bark according the package directions.
  6. Dip each Oreo ball in the melted almond bark to coat and place back on the baking sheet.
  7. Return to the freezer for about 10 minutes to harden the candy coating.
  8. Enjoy!  (And have some water or milk to wash them down because they take sweet to new levels.)

    Sounds great! Have you tried different cookies in place of a graham cracker crust?

    • I’ve done Vanilla Wafers in place of graham crackers in a crust, and I’ve eaten a store bought Oreo crust on a pie before. On Pinterest, I’ve seen a crust made of cinnamon rolls. I bet Daddy would like that one. It would probably be good on an apple pie. I made a chocolate crust once, too.
