Happy February! I am still in awe that January is over…how did that happen? Where did it go? I have no complaints, that just means we are in MOVE IN MONTH!! Yes, this is a recipe post, but until we move into our house (and probably after) there will always be mention of the house. I should do another update post on the new front door and paint alone….so dreamy.
ANYWAYS, these oreo truffles. They are to die for. One of my college roommates (and bridesmaids), Ashley used to make these for me. She would make them for a special occasion and always around Valentine’s Day, and every time someone eats them they make sex noises. That’s how you know something really tastes good, when people make sex noises….don’t make this weird, it’s the truth. So of course I asked her if I could steal the recipe for the blog.
You don’t have to make these for a significant other, your girlfriends would probably appreciate them more anyways. Chase and I have been having one each after dinner this week and now that they are almost gone I am worried about what we are going to do for an after-dinner treat.
Oh and I forgot to mention: there are only 3 ingredients to these bad boys, THREE. They are so easy to make and so easy to dress up! Ashley prefers to make these with almond bark, she says they taste better. I couldn’t find any when I was shopping and just bought melting chocolate. I bought milk chocolate and white chocolate, I was feeling adventurous. You can save some of the oreo crumbs to sprinkle on top of the truffles once they are done.
- 1 8oz box of cream cheese (room temperature)
- 1 package oreos
- 1 package melting chocolate or almond bark
Blend the entire package of oreos finely, preferably with a food processor. I used my magic bullet and that worked. Combine entire box of cream cheese with the entire package of finely ground Oreos. This works best when the cream cheese is room temperature.
Once combined, roll the mixture into small balls. Follow the instructions for melting your chocolate and roll the oreo balls in the chocolate until covered. I place mine onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to dry.
I did half white chocolate and half milk chocolate and once I was done I drizzled them with more chocolate. There’s no such thing as too much chocolate. I like to put them in the fridge to harden and I think they taste better that way, you get more of a crunch from the chocolate shell that way.
Store leftover truffles in the fridge (If there are any).
