Oreo Truffles now in a new, special Valentine’s Day Edition :). Truffles in the shape of a heart, creamy inside, crunchy on the outside! Except being a really tasty treat, if you pack them nicely into a cellophane with a ribbon, it could be a great homemade gift.
If you remember my last few recipes, like Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars and Nutella Cheesecake, and now these truffles, maybe you have noticed that all are no-bake recipes. Maybe you are thinking that I’m getting a little lazy (well, there is some truth in that) but it is not the main reason for my choice. I’m a real Oreo Cookies addict (like many of you) and I totally love every dessert which is made of it. Oreo Cream Cheese Truffles have been seen numerous times, especially on Christmas cookie plates, but as for me, it’s never enough!
Since we are closer and closer to Valentine’s day, I came to the idea to make an interesting twist with this classic treat, and make my Oreo Truffles in the shape of a heart. I was a little suspicious that my idea to cut the truffles with a cookie cuter will not be successful. But not only was it successful, it turned out that it is much quicker and easier than to roll dozens of balls with your hand. It is really a piece of cake, you ground the Oreo, mix it with creme cheese, spread the mixture onto a baking paper, place in the freezer for awhile (so you could cut the truffles more easily) and then dip the hearts into melted chocolate.
I dipped these truffles into chocolate twice so I would get the thick lair of crunchy shell(just as I like it), but it is your choice if you will make this additional step. Although, it has one advantage, besides looking better and being tastier, you don’t have to be so careful when you dip the truffles into the chocolate, because if don’t cover them perfect with the first layer, you will surely cover it with the second. You can add some sprinkles for festive looks, and also, they add extra crispiness and are in a perfect harmony with the creamy texture of the truffles.
Don’t be scared, maybe they look complicated, but these Oreo Truffles are so simple and easy to make, so tasty, that there is no chance you will regret the work you put in. Although, they have one downside, when you serve them, they disappear in the blink of an eye.
