Easy Oreo Truffles

I made these for Christmas and if you like Oreos, you're sure to love these!  I wanted an easy recipe, and I found this recipe on Kraft's website.  But I didn't want to use cream cheese.. so I kept on searching, and found the perfect substitute!  These little goodies remind me a lot of the cake balls that I have previously made.  I like the word 'truffles' better, though.. it's a little more classy, lol.

Now I really wish I had some Oreos and a big glass of milk!!

Easy Oreo Truffles
recipe from Bella's Bistro
  • 1 package Oreos
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • Chocolate for dipping.  I used semi-sweet, but you can you whatever you want.  Milk chocolate, white chocolate, or dark chocolate.
Crush Oreos in a food processor or blender into fine crumbs.  Reserve about 1/4 cup (or a little less) of crumbs to use as a topping.  Pour crumbs into a large bowl and mix in sweetened condensed milk.  Combine thoroughly.

Place wax paper or parchment paper on a baking sheet.  Form mixture into balls, however big or small you would like them.  Mine made about 30 truffles.  Place them on the baking sheet and put into fridge or freezer for a few minutes so they can set.

Start melting your chocolate either using the microwave or a double boiler (I prefer the microwave).  Remove truffles from fridge or freezer and dip into chocolate one by one.  I used 2 toothpicks to do this, one to stick the truffle in the chocolate and the other to help me get it onto the wax paper.  Don't forget to shake off the excess chocolate!  Sprinkle reserved crumbs over the top of each truffle before dipping the next so it will stick to the chocolate.

Refrigerate when finished.  And devour.. yum.

White chocolate would be pretty, too.  Especially with the crumbs on top!  :)
