I don’t know about you guys, but Oreos are one of my favorite cookies. I love dunking them in milk and sometimes crave the Oreo McFlurry from McDonalds. Oreos are indeed versatile because they can be eaten in so many different ways. A fun way to use up Oreo cookies that I recently discovered is to make little truffles out of them. This is not only fun, but it’s super easy. You literally only need 3 ingredients – oreos, cream cheese, and cocoa powder. You’ll be amazed at how simple it is to make, yet it yields quite a unique taste that will make you wanting more. Now, go get those 3 ingredients and start ready to make some Oreo Truflfes!
For this recipe, I used only half a package of Oreos because that's all I had left. So, put them inside a bag and start smashing it until it's in finely crumbled. This also works well with a food processor.
Put the oreos in a mixer along with 4 oz. of cream cheese (half a package). Mix together to combine.
To make the texture more gooey and moist, I added 4 tbsp of water to the mixture. This is entirely up to you based on how you want the texture of the oreo balls.
The mixture is placed in the freezer to harden for a bit before I rolled them into 1-inch balls. These are placed on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper for easy handling. I placed them in the freezer again after rolling so it stiffens up.
Take each ball and roll it around in cocoa powder so it's fully dusted and you can't see the blacks of the oreo underneath. This will yield about 24 oreo truffles.
Some people like to dip the oreo balls into melted chocolate or candy melt. But since the filling is already sweet, I didn't want to overpower the sweetness with a heavy coating. This is why I decided to use cocoa powder which is light and has a subtle chocolate flavor. It's also less mess! It's like biting into a brownie but flavored with Oreos. These are great as desserts for any party and people will think you spent a lot more time making it!
Have fun making your Oreo Truffles Dusted in Cocoa Powder! I sure did... just look at my pyramid of Oreo Truffles! I still have some leftovers which I put in the freezer. It's a great treat whenever you need something sweet to perk you up!
