- 1 package of Oreo cookies
- 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 8 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate
- Optional: sprinkles, crushed nuts, or chocolate drizzle for decoration
- Start by crushing the Oreo cookies. You can do this by using a food processor or by placing them in a resealable plastic bag and crushing them with a rolling pin. Make sure that the cookies are finely crushed with no large chunks remaining.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the crushed Oreo cookies with the softened cream cheese and vanilla extract. Mix well until the mixture is thoroughly combined and forms a dough-like consistency.
- Using your hands, roll the mixture into small, bite-sized balls. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
- Place the baking sheet with the Oreo truffle balls in the refrigerator and let them chill for about 30 minutes to firm up.
- While the truffle balls are chilling, melt the semi-sweet chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Start by microwaving it in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
- Take the chilled truffle balls out of the refrigerator and dip each one into the melted chocolate, using a fork to coat them evenly. Place them back on the baking sheet.
- If desired, sprinkle some crushed nuts or colorful sprinkles on top of the truffles for added flavor and decoration.
- Return the baking sheet to the refrigerator and let the chocolate coating set for at least 1 hour.
- Your homemade Oreo truffles are now ready to be enjoyed! Serve them at room temperature and watch them disappear within minutes.
