|How to make Oreo Truffles|
Smash the Oreos until they crumbs. You can use a blender if you have one, if not you can use a rolling pin and a baggie like I had to use. I double bagged about a 1/3 of the package and rolled the rolling pin over until I was satisfied. Add the softened brick of cream cheese. I just placed in the microwave (without the wrapper) for about 20 seconds. Mix the Oreos and cream cheese together. Chill in the fridge for a bit so that it is easier to form into balls.
Here are some of the balls after they were dipped in the melted candy coating. If you use two forks, a lot of the excess candy will drip back into the bowl. A few of my truffles did poop a little bit, but since they are just for family and not gifts, I was okay with that.
For the mint truffles all you need are the mint flavored (green) Oreos, a brick of cream cheese, and the candy coating of chose. We chose green candy melts.
I made the mint truffles in the same way, but left out the maraschino cherry. We dipped them in the green candy melts and then sprinkled with green sprinkles. No matter if you chose the cherry, the mint, or even plain Oreo truffles, they taste so good and make a great treat to share with friends.
