I love these Oreo Truffles! They look fancy and taste amazing. Bring these to a party and everyone will think you spent hours making them. They don’t have to know that there’s only 3 ingredients! Seriously….3 ingredients!! I always make these around Christmas time but I thought that making them into Easter eggs would be fun! I love the way they turned out. I promise that no one will be disappointed if they find these in their baskets Easter morning! Oreo Truffle Easter Eggs. Follow us on Facebook! Don’t forget to pin it on Pinterest!
What you’ll need:
One package of Oreos (the picture shows a family sized container, I bought that size because I know my kids will sneak away with some! All you need is the normal size package)
One 8 oz. package of cream cheese, start with about 4 oz and add more until you get the consistency you prefer
1 Package of white Almond Bark
Optional for decoration-icing, food coloring, sprinkles,crushed cookie pieces, candies etc.
You will also need a food processor or blender, wax paper, mixing bowl, microwavable bowl, baking sheets, spoons
Crush one package of Oreos in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor you can use a blender instead.
Warm the cream cheese for about 30-45 seconds in the microwave to soften it. Start with about 4 oz of cream cheese. Mix the crushed Oreos and cream cheese together. Keep adding cream cheese until you reach the texture you like. It will almost be the consistency of dough.
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Take about 1 tablespoon worth of the dough mixture in your hand and roll it into an egg shape. Place on the lined cookie sheet. I was able to roll out about 4 dozen eggs, but it will differ depending on how small or large you make them.
Place the sheet with the dough eggs in the fridge to cool and firm up. You may want to stick them in the freezer for a little while. They need to be firm to dip in chocolate.
Melt ½ of the package of Almond Bark in a microwave safe container. Start with 60 seconds, check. Then continue with 30 second intervals checking each time.
Now take each egg individually and dip it into the chocolate. Roll it around with a spoon to make sure it gets completely coated. Then remove it, making sure to let all excess chocolate drip off. Place on a new baking sheet lined with wax paper. Continue to do this will all the eggs. Place them in the fridge to cool and harden. It only takes about 10 minutes.
Now you can leave them like that, drizzle them with chocolate, crushed Oreo pieces or decorate them! I colored some icing and tried to make them look like decorated Easter eggs. If you don’t have icing tools you can put icing in a sandwich bag and snip the corner off and use it the same way!
Now all that’s left to do is enjoy!
HAPPY 100TH BIRTHDAY TO THE OREO!!
