Who doesn’t love Oreo cookies? I don’t know a single soul who doesn’t. Oreos have always been one of my favorite cookies and when I was a teenager, they started making them covered in chocolate. I seriously didn’t think they could get any better until my daughter begged me to make Oreo Truffles this past weekend. I’m so glad she did because they are so simple to make and so delicious!
Crush an entire package of Oreos in a plastic bag and then put them in a large bowl.
Using the back of a spoon, combine the crushed Oreos with the softened cream cheese.
Scoop out a golf ball size amount of the mixture and form into a ball. I find it’s best to use a cookie scoop to make the cookie balls.
Just scoop them out and put them onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper or a cooling rack. Stick them in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave. Whatever method you like best!
Coat the Oreo balls by using two spatulas or spoons.
Put in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to let the chocolate set.
I used vanilla frosting to decorate the outside.
That’s all there is to it. Hope you enjoy these tasty little Oreo Truffles!
