Easy Oreo Truffles

It’s been a while since I have posted a DIY recipe! Today, I had a hankering for Oreos, but I wanted to make something different out of the Oreos instead of just eating a pack. I let my inner DIY take over and these Oreo truffles are a delicious product of that. Heres what you will need to make these delicious treats:

 

Supplies

  • 1 package brick cream cheese (8oz)
  • 36 Oreo cookies
  • Vanilla almond bark
  • Blender/food processor
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment mat/paper

 

Step 1. Finely chop Oreos

Using your blender or food processor, finely chop the Oreos until they reduced to small crumbs.

Step 2. Soften cream cheese and add to crushed Oreos

Take the block of cream cheese, unwrap it and place it in the microwave on a microwave safe plate. Warm the block of cream cheese on high for 15 seconds. Once the cream cheese is warmed, put the whole block into the food processor along with the Oreos that you blended in the last step. Mix them together until they are well blended.

Step 3. Roll the Oreo mix into balls and freeze

Take the mixture of softened cream cheese and Oreo crumbs and shape them into 1 inch balls. Place the Oreo balls onto the parchment mat or the parchment paper and baking sheet, spacing them about 1 inch apart. Place your tray or mat in the freezer for 1 hour.

Step 4. Melt almond bark and dip Oreo balls into the melted almond bark

Take the almond bark and break it into small pieces. Place the small pieces in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Carefully take the bowl out of the microwave to see if the almond bark is melted. If not, heat in the microwave in 15 second increments until the almond bark is fully melted. Gently dip each Oreo truffle into the melted almond bark, using a fork to roll the truffle until it is evenly coated. Remove the truffle with a fork, letting the excess almond bark drip back into the bowl. Place the Oreo balls onto the parchment paper again.

After you have placed all of the almond bark coated Oreo truffles onto the parchment paper, you’re basically done. Let the truffles sit until the almond bark hardens up. These treats are amazing because they can be easily stored in an airtight container in the fridge for later, making them a great make now and eat later treat. For more DIY recipes, click here.
