That Bakerella never steers me wrong. Cake Pops, Pound Cake…and now Oreo Truffles. These little bites of chocolate-covered oreo flavor are delicious, but also pretty easy to make. Much easier than cake pops, since you get to skip that whole stick and wrapping and ribbon part. Didn’t even have to wait for a cake to cool!
White Chocolate Covered Oreo Truffles
Adapted from Bakerella.com
- One package of oreo cookies
- One 14 ounce package of white chocolate bark
- One 8 ounce package of cream cheese
- Sprinkles or decorating crystals (optional)
1. In a food processor fitted with the blade attachement, process oreos until a fine crumb is formed.
2. Add the cream cheese through the feeder tube in approximately two ounce chunks, while the machine continues to run. Once all of the cream cheese is combined, you should have a soft, gooey dough.
3. (I did this part wearing gloves) Shape the dough into balls with your hands, and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment. I got about 40 truffles out of one package of oreos. Let rest in the freezer for at least 15 minutes—this will help everything stay together when you dip them in chocolate.
4. Melt white chocolate bark or candy melts according to package directions. Place chocolate in a small bowl, and dip the oreo truffles in chocolate using a spoon. Carefully shake off the excess chocolate and place back on the parchment-lined sheet. You can add sprinkles or decorating crystals now, while the chocolate is still wet, if you desire. Once all of the truffles are dipped and back on the baking sheet, place the sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes or in the refrigerator for half an hour or so, to allow the chocolate to set. Enjoy!
Note: I used the white chocolate bark from the grocery store for these, but I think I would have prefered the Wilton’s candy melts that I normally use for cake pops. They melt better, and I’m just used to the consistency. The oreo dough balls didn’t hold up quite as well as cake pops in the chocolate, so my white chocolate was kind of cookies-&-cream flavored by the end. I poured it out on a parchment lined sheet, added some broken candy cane pieces, and made oreo-peppermint bark anyway! Didn’t get any complaints.
