Oreo Cheesecake Balls, all dressed up for the holidays!
Oreo truffles are a classic party dessert. They are SUPER delicious plus amazingly easy to make, so what’s not to love?
I have made them different ways and with all the variety of Oreos you can find these days, the flavor combos are literally never ending! I’ve made them classic before and a peanut butter buckeye version, but I’ve never tried red velvet!
Red velvet oreo truffles, topped with holiday M&M’s can these get any more festive? I think not!
If you have never made Oreo truffles before, just know that they are basically the easiest dessert to make. The hardest part would be the dipping, but I have a nice little trick to share that make these easily dippable too!
Oreo Truffle Directions:
- In a food processor, add Oreos, pulse into crumbs and softened cream cheese. Mix until combined.
- Scoop out 1 tablespoon sized balls, roll them between your hands to make them round. Place on a sheet tray and place in the freezer. I like to let them sit overnight.
- Melt vanilla almond bark per the directions on the package. Dip truffles one at a time into the melted candy.
- Place them back on the try to harden. Drizzle with more melted candy and top with chopped M&Ms.
How to easily dip truffles:
The easiest way I have found is to dip the truffles in batches, leaving the others to sit in the freezer. As soon as the truffles start to thaw, I have noticed it is harder to dip them.
I use a long skewer, I skewer the truffle just about 1/4 inch in the top, dip in the chocolate, in a small bowl to coat. Wipe off excess on the bottom of the truffle on the side of the bowl.
Place on a try and if the truffle won’t release itself from the skewer, you can use a toothpick to help get it off. Now, you will have a little hole on top of each truffle, no biggie.
This is where adding a drizzle of candy on top helps, place any leftover melted candy in a baggie, snip off a tiny part of a corner, now, fill the hole in the truffle and then drizzle a zig-zag on top. Immediately place the M&Ms on top, you have to do this one by one or else the melted candy will harden and the M&Ms won’t stick.
That’s it! Easy right??
