I just thought that I would make a quick little post on how to make Oreo Truffles, since I mentioned them in my last post. These are probably about the easiest things to make on the planet and I’m quite confident anyone could do this. All you need is:
1 Package of Double Stuffed Oreo Cookies
1 8 oz Package of Cream Cheese
1 Package of Semi-Sweet Chocolate (Any brand is fine, but I prefer Guittard.)
2-3 Tablespoons of Butter
All you need to do for the filling is throw all of the Oreo Cookies and the whole package of cream cheese into a food processor until it is all blended together. I recommend putting the cookies in first and blending them by themselves for a little bit because once the cream cheese is in there it can be hard on your processor’s engine. Once the mixture is blended, start scooping out about a golf ball size amount at a time and rolling it into balls. When you are done with all of the mixture, put the balls in the freezer while you melt the chocolate.
I think the best way to melt chocolate is by using a double boiler. If you do not have one, it also works to boil water in a sauce pan and put a large heat proof bowl on top with the chocolate in it. Do not leave the chocolate while it is melting because it is easy to burn and impossible to bring back. Stir the chocolate and the butter the entire time until it is all completely melted. Take the bowl off of the sauce pan.
Pull the chilled Oreo balls out of the freezer and dip each one it the chocolate. Make sure to cover each ball entirely with chocolate. Using toothpicks to dip the balls can help keep your fingers clean. But lets be honest, it can be a lot of fun getting chocolate off your fingers.
After you have covered every ball with chocolate, pop them back into the freezer until the chocolate coating has hardened. Then voila! You are ready to enjoy this sinful little treat.
