Oreo Christmas Truffles


This recipe is similar to the Dirt Pops recipe I posted back in October. I just left out the lollipop sticks and decorated the truffles with red and green candy melts. If you don't make candy because it takes forever, or you don't have a candy thermometer, give these a try. Everybody loves Oreos, and the truffles are so easy to make!


Oreo Christmas Truffles

1 (15-16 ounce) package Oreos
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (14 ounce) bag dark cocoa candy melts
1/2 cup red candy melts
1/2  cup green candy melts

Line a large cookie sheet with wax paper. In food processor (I used my Ninja), crush the cookies using quick on-and-off motions, until the consistency of fine crumbs.

In a large bowl, mix cookie crumbs with the cream cheese until well blended. Roll into 1-inch balls. Place on cookie sheet. Freeze 30 minutes or until firm.

In a small microwavable bowl, microwave the dark cocoa candy melts according to package directions. Stir until smooth.

Remove a few truffles from the freezer at a time. Dip each truffle in the melted chocolate to cover; tap off excess. Place on wax paper until chocolate is set.

Place 1/2  cup  red or green candy melts in a disposable decorating bag and melt in microwave according to package directions. Snip off the tip of the bag and drizzle the melted candy on the truffles. After the coating is set, store the truffles in refrigerator or freezer in an airtight container or zip-lock bag. Makes about 30 truffles.

You asked about Tastebook, yes, it is very very easy to use and I've enjoyed it! I don't know about the other cookbook site that you asked about, so I need to check that out. What are your thoughts on Blirp? Merry Christmas!!!!! Big hugs, Roz
