Last night Maria came around for dinner and I decided to make oreo truffles for dessert. If you live in Australia oreo's are on special at Woolworths for $1 at the moment so if you want to make these get in quick and stock up on oreos. I think I might buy a few more and keep them for Christmas so I can make these again.
All you need is 2 x 150g packs of oreos, 250g cream cheese and some white chocolate. I used white chocolate melts because they were also on special but you can use whatever you like. I used this whole packet to cover my truffles.
First, you need to crush your oreos into a powder. I used a stick blender but if you don't have one you could always put the oreos in a snap lock bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
Then chuck it all in a bowl and mix together with your cream cheese till you get the consistency above.
Then you need to roll the mixture into balls. I had a bowl of water and wet my hands every now and then to stop the mixture sticking to my fingers. Once you have made all your truffles melt your white chocolate and use to coat the truffles. I just dropped each truffle into the chocolate and used a couple of small spoons to roll them around and make sure they were coated.
Once they are coated line them up on a tray and pop them in the fridge. At the last minute I decided to add some sprinkles on top for a bit more colour.
I had mine in the fridge all day but I think a couple of hours would be plenty. These are so quick and easy to make and super tasty. I made mine before I went to work yesterday and I think they took me about 20 minutes. If you want a quick easy dessert that is also delicious give these a try!
