Yummy, yum yum....

I made these yummy oreo truffles awhile ago and have been meaning to post the recipe. I use the term recipe loosely, since they have such few ingredients and are super easy! (Though a little messy). They are so tasty. Has anyone had the oreo truffles at Blue Lemon in Highland!? My friend Amber introduced me to them--they are divine! These taste fairly close, but don't look nearly as pretty as theirs. ;) Here's the recipe. Enjoy!

Oreo Truffles


  • 1 lb Oreo cookies (3 sleeves)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (you could also use mint or coc)
  • 1 lb milk chocolate
  • 1/2 lb white chocolate


Using a food processor, grind oreo cookies to a fine powder. With a mixer, blend oreo cookie powder, cream cheese and vanilla extract until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese). Roll into small balls and place on wax-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 45 minutes (or put on the back porch for 5-10 minutes on a Utah sub-zero winter day). Line two cookie sheets with wax paper. In double-boiler, melt milk chocolate. Dip balls and coat thoroughly. With slotted spoon, lift balls out of chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet. In separate double boiler, melt white chocolate. Using a fork, drizzle white chocolate over balls. I like to mix things up and dip some in white chocolate, some in milk, then drizzle with the opposite chocolate. Sprinkle with a few oreo crumbs for a finished look (and so no one can see the messy job you did dipping the chocolates!). Let cool. Store in airtight container, in refrigerator.

***FYI, I think it's easier to melt chocolate in the microwave. You just have to watch it carefully. Make sure you use a microwavable dish and that you melt for 30 seconds, then stir, melt for 30 seconds more, then stir, until melted. It works great!
