‘Tis the season! It is officially December which basically means two things: say hello to the holiday season & goodbye to your New Years diet plans! In this week’s post you will find an easy and delicious no-bake, holiday Oreo truffle recipe that will steal the show at any cookie party. Start your Michael Buble playlist and get cooking! Enjoy…
What you will need:
This recipe is super simple and only requires the following ingredients:
- 1 package of Double Stuf Oreos
- 1 package of cream cheese (about 8oz)
- Meltable chocolate of your choice
- Candy canes & white chocolate (optional but adds a cute holiday flair!)
First, crush the entire package of Oreo cookies until they are fine crumbs (no need to separate the cream filling from the cookies- mash it all up!) I initially attempted to crumble the Oreos using a rolling pin but found that it was slightly difficult to achieve the perfect consistency with this method. The decision to whip out my food processor definitely saved me a lot of time and hassle.
Next, combine the finely crushed Oreos with the 8 oz package of cream cheese. Make sure that the cream cheese is at room temperate to make this step a lot easier. I recommend using your hands to mix the cookie crumbs with the cream cheese to ensure that both ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
After that, roll the mixture into small bite-sized truffles and place them in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. Allowing the cookie balls to chill will make the decorating process a lot simpler. Use your hands and a measuring spoon to create perfectly sized truffles each time. This recipe calls for around 2 cookie sheets full of truffles so you will be all set for your next holiday party!
After allowing the truffles to chill in the refrigerator, cover each one with a melted chocolate of your choice. I used semi-sweet dark chocolate chips and melted them in the microwave in 30 second intervals. I then used two forks to drip the excess chocolate off of each truffle once they were coated and placed them back in the refrigerator to cool for a second time.
After the chocolate coating sets it’s decoration time! I melted a Lindt white chocolate bar and drizzled it on top of the truffles to make them even cuter and extra chocolatey!
At this point, get creative! I also crushed some candy canes and placed them on top of a batch of the truffles to give them a holiday flair! I love the way these turned out and the peppermint flavor works perfectly with the rich chocolatey inside.
And just like that- you’re a chef! These holiday treats only require a few quick steps and ingredients you might already have in your pantry. You don’t even have to preheat your oven to impress your family and friends with these delectable truffles. Try out this recipe for yourself and let me know what you think in the comments down below!
