Easy Oreo Truffle Recipe

Since Christmas Eve is tomorrow and it is officially last minute, I decided it was time to post a quick and easy dessert.  Jaime and I served these Oreo truffles at our holiday party.  Every time I walked by the dessert table the plate where these truffles had been was empty.  This was the most requested recipe at our gathering and one of the simplest.  I almost didn’t want to tell anyone just how easy these treats were to make, but I did and now I am going to share with you.

Oreo TrufflesTo make the Oreo truffles, I used the following:

1 package (32 oz.) Oreos
1 package cream cheese (room temperature)
2 c. vanilla candy coating wafers (milk chocolate wafers would also work)

That’s it! Only three ingredients, well four if you count sprinkles, which are optional.

Reserving five Oreo cookies, I placed one package of Oreos in a food processor. (Yes, the whole cookies.) I processed the cookies until they were a fine powder.  I added the cream cheese and continued to process the mixture until it looked like this:

Oreo and Cream Cheese MixtureI formed the mixture into balls using about 1 tablespoon of the mixture for each ball. I used a bit of vegetable shortening to grease a cookie cutter and then using a small spoon, smashed each ball inside a star cookie cutter to form a star shape.

Oreo Truffle StarsI chilled the stars until firm.  I placed the reserved Oreos in a small plastic bag and crushed into a coarse powder.  Following the directions on the package, I melted the wafers in the microwave.  Using a fondue fork, I dipped each star into the melted candy coating and placed on a piece of waxed paper to set.  While the candy was still melted I sprinkled the top of each candy with Oreo powder or placed a sprinkle on top.

Enjoy!
