Yay! Today is the last day for my 3-ingredient series and we have Oreo Truffles on the menu.
Oreo truffles are a simple dessert to make that appear to be much fancier than they really are. To make the truffle center, you just need to process Oreo cookies and cream cheese together. Easy, right? The you just dip them in melted chocolate and you’re done. I know it probably doesn’t sound too appealing, but it tastes soooo good.
I actually prefer Joe-Joe’s (from Trader Joe’s) over Oreos. I should probably call them Joe-Joe’s truffles instead then, shouldn’t I? Did you know that Trader Joe’s offers Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s during the holidays? They are filled with minty cream and candy cane pieces. I decided to make half of the truffles with regular Joe-Joe’s and half with Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s
Oreo Truffles (makes about 40 truffles)
16 oz package of Oreos, divided (or Joe-Joe’s, or Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s)
16 oz cream cheese, softened
16 oz semi-sweet chocolate
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Pulse 9 of the Oreos in a food processor (or blender) until finely groung. Place them in a bowl and set aside.
Place the remaining Oreos (36) in the food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add in cream cheese and processor until a dough-like mixture forms. Form the dough into 1/2 inch balls and place on the cookie sheet. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
Heat chocolate in a double boiler until smooth and melted. Remove the truffles from the refrigerator. Using 2 forks, cover each truffle in chocolate and return to the cookie sheet. Sprinkle a bit of the reserved cookie crumbs on top of the truffles and return them to the refrigerator. Let the chocolate set for at least 1 hour before serving. Keep remaining truffles covered in the refrigerator.
