INGREDIENTS

When making Oreo Truffles,you basically just need two main ingredients:

  • OREO COOKIES (1 pack)
  • CREAM CHEESE (8 oz or 1 stick)


Optional ingredient:

  • CHOCOLATE CHIPS (10 oz)


There is a selection of Oreo cookies on the shelves. From experience, I find that sticking with the classic Milk Favorite Cookies is a better option. The Ice Cream and Mint flavors are the worst. However, you may customize according to your preference so if you want ice cream, then go ahead, use the ice cream flavor. Personally, I just find them too strong for the truffles and they mask the taste of the cream cheese. And it is definitely the cream cheese that gives the truffles their... ziiiiing!

UNO. Pound Away!

Of course we cannot work with the current state of the Oreo cookies as they are. We need to pound them. And pound them good! I like my truffles uniform when I take a bite out of it so it is crucial I do not leave any huge cookie granules. These granules will not thoroughly mix with the cream cheese and you end up tasting the cookie, not the mixture.

So, go ahead, POUND POUND POUND!

DOS. Get dirty with the hands!

After pounding away the cookies manually or-- if your kitchen is technologically advanced-- with the use of a food processor, you will get the Oreo crumbs.

The finer the crumbs, the better.

It is these crumbs that you mix your stick of Cream Cheese with. Sometimes a ladle or a spoon does not help much and you may have to use your own hands to mix them uniformly. It won't take a long time to do this. As long as you do not see any more white from the Cream Cheese, then it means that you have mixed them both well.

TRES. Roll the ball!

You may just dig your face in the huge mixture exactly like what our medieval ancestors did. That is going to be one enormous truffle. However, if you are from the 21st Century, try rolling tiny amounts of it into balls. Believe me, it is more worth it this way.

Remember, the taste is one thing but boy, the presentation is another.

I find that rolling them in tiny balls and refrigerating them for about 30 minutes will make them hard enough to easily roll in the pool of molten chocolate. Once all the balls are coated with your desired chocolate (I prefer sweetened and white ones), pop them inside the fridge once again for another 30 minutes and voila!

OREO TRUFFLES!

I made these homemade Oreo Truffles last night and the family simply loved them. They may not look perfectly coated with chocolate and quite irregular in shape, but the taste makes up for it. I am sure that anyone with taste buds will appreciate them.

Desserts and snacks can be quite inexpensive if we know how to make them or where to start. Do check out the video I shared below which shows how this lady made her own delicious Oreo truffles. Remember, this recipe is delightfully easy and so cheap to make, so I am sure it will not take you a long time to decide to finally attempt to do this.

As holidays are coming, you may even want to coat the balls (before the chocolate cools down and hardens) with some red, white or green (or whatever colors you think Christmas is represented with) sprinkles. This makes your Oreo truffles even more eye-catching and appealing.

Enjoy the clip below and do let me know in the comment section if you have tried this and loved the result. Enjoy munching!

      @Ceres Schwarz, thanks for dropping by! Yes, I was blown away by how simple it was to make and not to mention, cheap. Made me realize that desserts do not have to be super expensive. They can still be yummy even on the inexpensive side. :)
