Hello Everyone! Today I will be sharing with you my recipe for “Oreo Truffle Bites”. I know not the most creative of names, but I’ll roll with it. This recipe is one of my favorites to make around the holidays. It’s very simple to make and I love to bag a few of them up and give them out as gift treats. They are sort of along the line of a truffle, however, I am not sure they actually technically would qualify as a truffle.

Alas, if you are looking for a simple and yet decadent treat to make, then be sure to check out the recipe below.

Let me know what you think!

Enjoy!

 

Ingredients:
  • 2 – packages of double stuffed Oreos
  • 2 – 8 oz packages of Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 2 – packages of dark chocolate or milk chocolate dipping chocolate discs or chips.
  • 1 – package of white chocolate chips

 

  1. In a large bowl empty the 2 packages of double stuffed Oreos.
  2. Using a thick wooden spoon or heavy-duty masher, crush all of the Oreos into fine crumbs.
  3. Next, take the cream cheese packages and empty them into the bowl.
  4. Mix the Oreos and cream cheese together until evenly mixed. (This may take a bit of good old-fashioned elbow grease).

  6. Next you are going to take about a tablespoon worth of the mixture and roll it into a nice round ball and place it on the wax paper. Continue to roll the mixture into balls until it is all gone.
  7. Place the tray containing the balls in a fridge for about an hour.  (They need to be cool and hardened in order for the next step to go smoothly).
  8. Once the balls have been chilled and hardened up a bit. Take them out of the fridge.
  9. You will then take you dipping chocolate and place the chips in a bowl. Microwave the chocolate in 30 second intervals, stirring well each time. Continue doing this until the chocolate is all melted and smooth.
  10. Next, take one of the balls and drop it into the melted chocolate.
  11. Using a fork lift the ball out of the mixture.
  12. Gently tap the fork against the edge of the bowl so that the excess melted chocolate falls through the tines of the fork.
  13. Use the edge of the bowl to scrap the melted chocolate drippings from the bottom of the fork.
  14. Place the chocolate covered bite onto the wax paper.
  15. Repeat this process with all of the balls until they are all covered in chocolate.
  16. Place the tray back into the fridge for about and hour until the chocolate is cooled and hardened.
  17. After about an hour or so remove the tray from the fridge.
  18. Take the white chocolate chips, place them in a bowl and melt them in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring at each interval, until smooth.
  19. Using a spoon, scoop a small amount of the melted chocolate and drizzle them over the balls.
  20. When down place back in the fridge for another hour.
  21. After an hour you can gobble them up! Enjoy!

Notes:
  • If you do not wish to mix the Oreo crumbs and cream cheese by hand you can use an automatic mixer.
  • If the melting chocolate starts to cool in the bowl before you are down, then you can throw it back in the microwave again for a few seconds. Make sure to mix.
  • If you want to make “pops” with these simply insert a stick into the bottom of a bite and let the mixture harden around the stick. Make sure to do this step before you dip the balls into the melted chocolate.
  • You can use chocolate chips, chocolate dipping discs or even the candy coating dipping disc. It’s completely up to you.
