Do you know what I love? Oreos. These little sandwiches of glorious perfection are my absolute favorite sweet treat. So when the family asked me to whip up a little chocolate dessert for them the other day I used it as an excuse to create these ridiculously easy to make Dark Chocolate Mint Oreo Truffles. Y’all are going to want to run to the store and make these today because they are just so darn easy-and they taste amazing and totally indulgent!
- 1 package Mint Oreos
- 8 oz package of cream cheese (the recipe turns out just as good with light cream cheese)
- 10 oz bag of dark chocolate morsels
- sprinkles (optional)
Place the Oreos in a food processor and pulse until finely crumbed. Transfer crumbs to aand add cream cheese, mix on medium speed until well blended, scraping sides as needed.
Roll the cookie/cheese mixture into 1.5″ balls and place on wax paper lined plate. Freeze balls for 20 minutes. (I used this time to go do a quick workout so I didn’t feel so guilty about how many of these suckers I was about to eat!!)
In a small bowl, microwave the dark chocolate morsels 45 seconds at a time, stirring afterwards, until melted. Use a fork to dip the truffles in the chocolate and turn to coat. Scoop the truffle out using the fork (don’t pierce it, just scoop the fork underneath) and tap on the side of the bowl a few times to remove excess chocolate. Set the truffle on a wax paper covered plate to firm up.
If you want to add sprinkles as I did, do it immediately after dipping before the chocolate hardens. Place truffles in the freezer 45 minutes to completely harden before serving. Keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
I hope you enjoy these truffles just as much as I do-they are just heavenly!Print
