Oreo Truffle Balls

WARNING:
This recipe is not for the faint of heart. It is sinful, it is delicious and it is one of my all-time favourites. If you are watching what you eat this Easter Weekend or you are trying to refrain from sweets, you might want to skip this post.

However, if you love a little treat and you are looking for something fabulous to bring to your family's Easter celebration, keep reading. I have the easiest recipe that is going to "wow" everyone!

My stretchy pants are still out and it's the beginning of a four day weekend, so I felt it was a day to celebrate. This recipe is Easter Bunny approved and I know you are going to love it! 

This is all you need: 


Uh oh. You're drooling already aren't you?

Oreo Truffle Balls
Makes approximately 16 truffles
Recipe from How Sweet It Is

This recipe is so incredibly easy and these truffle balls are so incredibly delicious! Be careful, a batch could easily be eaten in one sitting :-) Do you have your stretchy pants out?!?

1 box of oreo cookies
1 block of cream cheese at room temperature
Something to coat your truffles in - I used semi sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate and sprinkles

Add the oreo cookies to your food processor and process into a crumb. As you know, my food processor recently bit the dust, so I used my blender. I had to do batches. It worked okay but a food processor works the best for this. Your cookie crumbs should look something like this.


Cut the cream cheese into chunks. Add to the cookie mixture in the food processor and process until well mixed. If you are using a blender, you will have to do it in batches.


The filling was pretty soft and sticky, so I put it into the freezer for 15 minutes. It was much easier to roll into balls after it was chilled.

Roll the dough into one inch balls and place them in the freezer for at least an hour. Now, if you can restrain yourself, DO NOT taste test the truffles at this time. You start out tasting one and end up eating three, uh five. 



By now, I assume you've ignored my advice and had a taste. They're like mini oreo cheesecakes in a ball. Now try not to eat a bunch or you're going to end up having to buy even bigger stretchy pants..gulp.

Once the hour has passed, melt your chocolate chips. I melted mine in the microwave making sure to stir every 30 seconds. I dipped half in semi-sweet chocolate and the other half in white chocolate.


Of course, in keeping with my current obsession, sprinkles were a must.


I think the sprinkles make these look like the perfect treat for Easter!

After dipping the truffles in the chocolate, I put them in a freezer appropriate Tupperware container lined with parchment paper. You can freeze the truffles until you are ready to eat them. Notice how I said YOU? Freezing does nothing to deter me from sneaking a truffle now and again...I'll eat them frozen, thawed or melted ~ it all tastes the same to me! My best advice is taste a couple and then give the rest away.
 


People love these and they are an awesome treat for any party or family gathering. Everyone will be asking you for the recipe!!

I hope you have a wonderful Good Friday. Maybe you can squeeze in some time to whip up these truffles for your Sunday dinner. We have nothing going on tomorrow, so I am planning to make some food for our family dinners on Saturday and Sunday. We are also hoping to get the house cleaned, take the dogs for a long walk and then enjoy a nice, relaxing evening watching movies and eating homemade nachos ~ sounds heavenly to me!

Do you have any big plans for Good Friday?
What's your favourite cookie/sweet that you love to make for the holidays?

Goodnight!

  5. Woo-wee! These may not keep your body fit and fabulous but they will keep your mouth super happy! I've never made any of the popular cake or brownie balls. Their single serving size frightens me frankly. Too easy to pop too many in this big mouth of mine.

    The words in your content seem to be running off

    a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed
