I don’t know about you but I always like to make edible gifts for Christmas. I think they’re much more personal & really show that you care. The trouble is, I always seem to spend much longer in the kitchen than I anticipated and most recipes I’ve tried are faffy, fiddly and far too much effort. NOT what you need in the run up to Christmas! As if there’s not enough to do already right?
These gorgeous Oreo Truffles are an absolute godsend! Not only are they really simple, they only take about an hour to make. It’s exactly what you’ve been looking for!
Here is what you will need to make approx 20 – 30 truffles. (Dependent on how large you make them.)
- 1 x 154g Pack of Oreos
- 225g Philadelphia Cream Cheese
- 300g White Chocolate
- Any decoration of your choice (I used sprinkles)
In a food processor, blitz the whole pack of Oreo biscuits (cream filling too) until you’re left with fine crumbs.
Roll teaspoon sized chunks of the mixture into balls and place onto the prepared tray. Yes it’s messy but for 10 minutes of dirty hands – it’s totally worth it!
Place the tray into the freezer for 30 minutes for the truffles to harden. This will make it much easier to cover later.
Now you’re ready for the fun bit!
Get your decorations ready. I used some red and green sprinkles – you could use hundreds and thousands or whatever takes your fancy. Whatever you use, get it ready before you start coating the truffles with chocolate. Because they are so cold having come out the freezer – the chocolate will set pretty quickly so you need to decorate straight away.
Line a baking tray with non stick paper or a silicone baking mat.
Dump a truffle into the melted chocolate and, using a fork, cover in white chocolate before lifting (don’t stab it) & allowing any excess to drain away.
Place into cellophane bags tied with a pretty ribbon or into mini cupcake cases in a Christmas box and (reluctantly) give away to your loved ones.
Store in the fridge & eat within 5 days.
You could really mix these up if you wanted to. You could use milk chocolate instead of white or you could use golden Oreos instead of original chocolate. You could even melt milk chocolate and decorate over the white chocolate with zig zags instead of using sprinkles. You really can personalise these to whoever you’re planning on giving them to.
They’re delightfully delicious, sensationally moreish, insanely easy to make and you’re totally gona’ make them right? Of course you are!!
Hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies.
