Oreo Truffles

Every Wednesday evening I try to make time to bake so I can have a little treat whilst watching Great British Bake Off. My faveeeee!

This week I decided I would post on my marvellous creation because it was so so so easy to make and I will definitely be making these ALL THE TIME now.

Oreo’s are like my favourite thing in the entire world. Like, they are incredible. YUM. I used to make normal truffles quite often and my friends and flatmates absolutely loved them so why not put the two together?!

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it was like the easiest bake I have ever done! I changed parts of the recipe that I followed due to personal taste. The original recipe included vanilla extract in the mixture to make the truffles sweeter, however I gave this a miss as I thought they were sweet enough.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 packets of Oreo’s
  • Cream cheese
  • Milk chocolate

 

I went for the lighter option of cream cheese as I’m trying to watch what I’m eating although it still tastes the exact same with the lighter option!

Method

This recipe is honestly so so easy and does not take long at all.

  1. Begin by placing your Oreo’s in a seal-able food bad and crushing them into tiny bits with a rolling pin. Alternatively you can use a food mixer which is so much faster! I went for the food mixer option because I’m too lazy to batter the biscuits for long enough to get them into tiny wee pieces.
  2. Empty your crushed biscuit mixture into a mixing bowl and add you cream cheese. Use a spoon to mix the cream cheese and biscuit mix together. Make sure you mix it together well so there are no big evident lumps of cream cheese The mixture will be quite sticky.

3. This is my favourite part! Using a teaspoon, scoop the mixture and then take it in your hands and roll them into ball shapes. You obviously don’t need to use a teaspoon as you may want larger sized truffles however, I went for smaller treat sized truffles so I didn’t feel as guilty! I then placed them on a baking tray and popped them in the fridge for an hour.

4. Once they have been in the fridge they set a bit more so are less sticky and easier to handle! This part is completely optional but it really made my truffles just right and completely perfect. I melted the whole slab of chocolate over the hob and then used a fork and dipped in each truffle individually and made sure the whole thing was covered. Because the truffles have been in the fridge for over an hour and are cold, the melted chocolate immediately sets and they are ready to be eaten!

And voilaaaa. As simple as that. You now have Oreo truffles. They taste absolutely incredible!
