I Love Oreo Truffles. They’re so easy for kids to get into the kitchen and to help make!
Kids can use their own creativity by adding different flavors and decorations – to make their very own truffles! My daughter, Abby, just whipped up a batch this past weekend and had a ball decorating them herself. I think she has the recipe memorized now!
Remember it’s not about perfection
I didn’t stand over my daughter making sure these truffles turned out perfectly round, or that they were dipped exactly right. She had success in making them her own, and I will say it got a little messy!
What a delicious tasty treat to give away to teachers, grandparents or even neighbors!
18 oz. package of OREO Cookies
8 oz. package of Cream Cheese, softened
16 oz. Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted
(I doubled the recipe using ½ fat-free and ½ regular cream cheese. I also used dark chocolate, which I bought in the bulk section at Winco grocery store.)
Mix cream cheese and crushed (fine crumbs) Oreo cookies together
Roll dough into 1 inch balls, putting on wax or parchment paper
Refrigerate for 30 minutes
Dip balls, using toothpicks or a spoon, into melted chocolate (use double broiler or microwave on 50%)
Refrigerate another 30 minutes until chocolate hardens
Anyway we can help our kids to be successful in giving it is encouraged in my home – and it usually is centered on food!
Decorate and Devour! Or package them up and give them away!
