It’s ridiculous how easy, quick, and delicious these oreo truffles are. I’ve made them twice this week already and now I’m fighting the urge to make a peppermint kind after seeing those yummy looking peppermint Oreos today.
I’ve featured these Oreo truffles before as Halloween eyeballs, but I just had to show them again in a more elegant light.
These rich, chocolaty little balls of yumminess has the potential of being one elegant chocolate gift, party favor, hostess gift, or whatever! The color of the chocolate can be changed to suit any occassion and we won’t even get into all the ways you can change up the flavor using different sandwich cookies or add-ins. (strawberry white chocolate shortbread truffles anyone?)
But that’s another blog post, today we are keeping it simple and focusing on the tried and true classic recipe: Oreos, cream cheese, and chocolate!
Now, as you all know, I’m not that grand at decorating things (and yes, piping on chocolate is decorating in my book) So hopefully you will be a little bit neater with your piping and yours will look like they came straight from an upscale gourmet chocolatier. Although I do think a little imperfection give it’s it that hand made from love charm.
