We all have those days when we want something sweet and delicious but we know a regular candy bar won’t satiate the craving. We know baking anything is out of the question because either a. you don’t have an oven, or b. you’re too lazy. This is a recipe for those lazy dessert-craving days. It also makes a great romantic gift or party dessert when you don’t have the means to make truffles.What’s remarkable about these oreo truffles is the way they are ground together, the filling transforms into a very moist, cake-like truffle filling.henever I sneak these onto a dessert table at a party or get-together, they are always the first thing to go. The inside tastes like sweet Oreo cheesecake. A thick, huge bite of it! You can make them with Golden Oreos, regular Oreos, Peanut Butter Oreos – well, any variety of Oreos! I can’t keep up with how many varieties are on the shelves these days.
1/2package Golden Oreos (12 cookies), finely crushed
1/2 package regular Oreos (12 cookies), finely crushed
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, halved and softened
White chocolate candy melts*, melted
Sprinkles, nonpareils and/or sanding sugar, for decoration
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
In a food processor or blender, separately grind both flavors of Oreos into fine crumbs. Transfer crumbs to two separate large bowls. Mix both bowls of crumbs with half the cream cheese (4 oz. each), until well combined.
Shape into 24 (1-inch) balls and place onto prepared baking sheet. Freeze for 20 minutes.
Melt white chocolate according to package directions. Dip the balls into chocolate, place on the baking sheet, and immediately top with sprinkles or desired decorations. (I find a wooden skewer helps with the dipping! Just stick into the truffle, swirl in the chocolate, and place on the sheet).
