Have you tried Oreo truffles? I made these for Christmas and they are soooo good! I didn’t actually put them out for Christmas lunch though. As you can see from my Christmas lunch blog post, we already had too much food. 🙂 But, that just meant my hubby, my parents and I were able to enjoy them for several days after Christmas.
The middle of the truffles is very easy to make. It’s just mashed up Oreo cookies (I put them in a zip-lock bag and hit them with a rolling pin to squash them) and cream cheese mixed together and rolled into a ball. There are recipes all over the internet if you want to give them a go.
The hard part was dipping them in chocolate. To melt the chocolate, I just put it in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, until it was melted. I then worked through the Oreo truffles, one at time. To dip a truffle, I first put it on a toothpick. I then dipped it in the chocolate, making sure it was fully coated. The tricky part was to then get the truffle off the toothpick and onto a tray. I used a teaspoon to help me, but I did make a few blunders. Still, plenty of them turned out well enough to serve.
Before I put them in the fridge to set, I added a few decorations to each one.
I was pretty happy with how they turned out. I don’t think I’ll make them again for awhile. They are delicious but definitely not healthy! They are evil! 🙂 Maybe I’ll make them for my birthday or perhaps I will wait until next Christmas.
