All the details about these Oreo Truffles:
- Flavor: be ready for chocolate overload. These truffles are loaded with chocolate flavoring and coated in chocolate, so of course, these are a chocolate lovers dream.
- Texture: due to mixing crushed cookies with cream cheese, these have a creamy, dense texture on the inside.
- Ease: only 5 ingredients are needed for these truffles: cookies, cream cheese, dipping chocolate, white chocolate for the design and oil to ensure a smooth finish.
- Time: hands on time will include about 30 minutes, between prepping ingredients, forming the truffles and dipping. The rest of the the recipe is hands off chilling time.
Notes on some ingredients:
- Cookies: use regular sized chocolate cookies, you can of course substitute for any flavoring you would prefer.
- Cream Cheese: this holds together the cookie filling into a truffle shape.
- Semi Sweet Chocolate: using a semi sweet chocolate helps to balance flavors and ensure that the resulting truffle isn’t overly sweet.
- White Chocolate: grab a bar or some chocolate chips. Be sure to take your time when melting white chocolate as it can be quite temperamental.
- Oil: this helps the chocolate melt nice and smooth.
How to Make (step-by-step):
- Step 1 & 2: Place the cookies in a food processor and blend until only crumbs remain. (If you don’t have a processor you can place the cookies in a bag and crush using a rolling pin.)
- Step 3 & 4: Combine the crushed cookies with the softened cream cheese and stir to combine to a thick creamy mixture.
- Step 5: Divide the truffle mixture into tablespoon size amounts, shaping into round balls by rolling in your hands, and then gently pinching the ends to shape into footballs. Chill in freezer for up to 30 minutes.
- Step 6: Dip the truffles into melted chocolate. If you have chocolate dipping tools use those for ease, otherwise you can use forks to carefully dip into chocolate, wipe off excess and then place on baking sheet to allow to set.
- Step 7: Place white chocolate into a piping bag and add the white lines to resemble a football. Chill the truffles again in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving.
- Chill the truffles before dipping to ensure that the truffles don’t soften too much in the warm chocolate.
- Smooth Finish: adding the small amount of coconut oil to the chocolate helps to ensure that the melted chocolate is smooth and shiny, this will give a nice smooth finish to your truffles.
- Tools: Don’t have a processor? Simply place the cookies in a bag and crush with a rolling pin. If you don’t have a piping bag for the white chocolate you can carefully drizzle with a small spoon if needed.
When making them, you can place the truffles in the freezer or the refrigerator to get them nice and chilled for dipping. For storage, they can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or up to 2 months in the freezer.
This can happen if you are using double stuffed cookies, this means there is more filling to the cookies and can make a sticky mixture. Make sure you are grabbing the regular sized cookies.
The cracking can happen if they are chilled too long before dipping. Be sure you are only chilling for the amount of time specified in the recipe card below.
