Oreo Truffles now in a new, special Valentine’s Day Edition :). Truffles in the shape of a heart, creamy inside, crunchy on the outside! Except being a really tasty treat, if you pack them nicely into a cellophane with a ribbon, it could be a great homemade gift.
If you remember my last few recipes, like Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars and Nutella Cheesecake, and now these truffles, maybe you have noticed that all are no-bake recipes. Maybe you are thinking that I’m getting a little lazy (well, there is some truth in that) but it is not the main reason for my choice. I’m a real Oreo Cookies addict (like many of you) and I totally love every dessert which is made of it. Similarly to the Reese’s Cheesecake, Oreo Cream Cheese Truffles have been seen numerous times, especially on Christmas cookie plates, but as for me, it’s never enough!
Since we are closer and closer to Valentine’s day, I came to the idea to make an interesting twist with this classic treat, and make my Oreo Truffles in the shape of a heart. I was a little suspicious that my idea to cut the truffles with a cookie cuter will not be successful. But not only was it successful, it turned out that it is much quicker and easier than to roll dozens of balls with your hand. It is really a piece of cake, you ground the Oreo, mix it with creme cheese, spread the mixture onto a baking paper, place in the freezer for awhile (so you could cut the truffles more easily) and then dip the hearts into melted chocolate.
- 24 Oreo cookies-crushed into fine crumbs
- 5 oz. softened cream cheese
- 12-14 oz. high quality white chocolate (you can use white chocolate candy coating or vanilla almond bark)
- Heart shaped sprinkles-optional
- Line a tray with baking paper.
- Crush whole Oreos with the filling in a really fine crumbs and combine it with softened cream cheese.
- You can do this by hands, press it with a back of the spoon, or use a mixer with paddle attachment(the mixture is really thick and I prefer to knead it by hand).
