OREO TRUFFLES INGREDIENTS

Oreo Truffles raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 (14-ounce) package of regular Oreos
  • 1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 10 ounces white melting wafers
  • 1 tablespoon of shortening
  • ¼ cup dark cocoa melting wafers, optional

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

OREOS: There are plenty of fun flavors beyond the classic Oreo that you can choose for this no-bake treat. How about peppermint Oreos for the Christmas season or lemon Oreos in the spring?

CANDY CANES: If you are going the peppermint route, you could mix ½ cup crushed candy canes into your mixture

kitchen tools you actually need

HOW TO MAKE THIS OREO TRUFFLES RECIPE

STEP ONE: Line a baker’s half sheet with parchment paper.

PRO TIP:

A baker’s half sheet is approximately 17×12-inches in size.

STEP TWO: Pulse Oreo cookies, complete with filling, in a food processor until you achieve fine crumbs.

PRO TIP:

If you don’t own a food processor, you can place the Oreos in a large Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin. You will want to make sure the bag is completely sealed.

STEP THREE: Reserve ¼ cup Oreo cookie crumbs from the food processor, set aside for later.

PRO TIP:

Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that it blends well and doesn’t leave lumps in the truffle mixture.

STEP FOUR: Add the room temperature cream cheese and vanilla to the cookie crumbs in the food processor and pulse until fully incorporated.

PRO TIP:

If your food processor does not fully incorporate the cream cheese and Oreo cookie crumble, you can finish mixing by hand.

STEP FIVE: Use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop to measure out 21 equal-sized portions. Roll into small balls by hand and place truffles on the prepared baking sheet.

STEP SIX: Freeze the Oreo balls until slightly hardened. This should take about 15 to 20 minutes.

PRO TIP:

Don’t skip the chilling time! The chilled balls will be much easier to work with than ones at room temperature.

STEP SEVEN: Melt shortening and wafers in 30-second intervals at a time in a microwave-safe bowl until melted. Stir well between each heating.

STEP EIGHT: Dip hardened truffles into melted wafer mixture. Turn with a fork until well coated.
