On the 9th day of Christmas…
…we’re putting these Oreo Truffles on our Christmas list!
If we were to have a contest for the tastiest treat with the fewest ingredients, these Oreo Truffles would absolutely walk (or roll) away with a blue ribbon. Oreos, cream cheese and chocolate are all that’s needed to whip up a batch of these decadent truffles. Three ingredients…I kid you not.
These Oreo Truffles are so delicious that they have developed a sort of cult following among some of my friends. I would probably not be here writing this today if I hadn’t made them for last week’s Christmas party. These friends have thoughtfully renamed this delicacy “O-Bombs.” While I appreciate the creativity, I just couldn’t quite bring myself to use this name in the title of this post.
Whatever you want to call them, Oreo Balls/Truffles/O-Bombs are absolutely divine. The centers are full of rich, creamy, chocolate-y goodness that are absolutely insane. Dip them in the chocolate of your choosing- milk, semi-sweet, white– they all taste incredible. I typically prefer white chocolate because I think it looks pretty with the sprinkles and provides a nice visual balance to the dark interior.
These make a great holiday gift because they are a) easy/cheap for you and b) delicious/impressive to your friends/family/co-workers. My only advice is to make an extra tray because you will definitely want to keep some for yourself.
- 1 16-oz. package Oreos
- 1 8-oz. package cream cheese
- 1 16-oz. bag white chocolate chips (or regular chocolate chips)
- Sprinkles for decorating
- In a food processor, crush the Oreo cookies. Add in cream cheese and mix until well-combined.(If you do not have a food processor, place cookies in a gallon-size plastic bag and crush with a wine bottle or rolling pin. Mix softened cream cheese in by hand.
- Roll into 1-1/2 inch balls. Place on a parchment-covered cookie sheet.
- Refrigerate truffles for at least an hour. This makes them easier to dip!
- Melt chocolate over a double-boiler or in the microwave. I usually add a 1-2 teaspoons of vegetable oil to the melted chocolate to keep it shiny and thin.
- Dip the balls in the chocolate and place back on cookie sheet. Decorate with sprinkles.
- Chill truffles for at least 1-2 hours, or until chocolate is firm to the touch.
