Oreo Truffles - all dressed up for Valentine's Day

One of my favorite things about baking is sharing treats with my friends and family. Since I've had a lot of time on my hands recently, I decided to make some little Valentine's Day gifts. I had made these truffles for Christmas, and they were a huge hit, so I figured that I would dress them up for Valentine's Day and gift them as gifts. They turned out super cute, and were delicious as always!

Ingredients:
  • 1 pound oreo cookies
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pound milk chocolate
  • ½ pound white chocolate (I used red candy melts for V-day)

Directions:

  • Using food processor, grind cookies to fine powder
  • With a mixer, blend 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 a cookie sheet lined with wax paper
  • Insert toothpick into middle of each ball
  • Freeze until firm
  • Dip balls into melted chocolate
  • Remove toothpicks
  • Drizzle with melted white chocolate

Hi there! I just wanted to know, when you grind the oreos, is this assuming you've removed the cream between the two cookies?

Hi Bianca,

You actually grind up the whole cookies, including the filling. Hope that helps!
