Oreo truffles can be made with just a few ingredients and don’t take a lot of time, but always turn out so good! For Christmas, I made this festive peppermint version.
Crushing the oreos was the most time consuming part but its a lot of fun! I put the oreos in a ziploc bag and first used this meat tenderizer to crush them. That wasn’t grinding them up finely enough so I then ran the bag over with a rolling pin until the oreos were completely crushed.
I’m sure you could find crushed peppermint at the store during the holidays, but I had some peppermints in the house so I put them in a ziploc and crushed them to use for the topping. You could also use a candy cane or two.
Here’s the recipe!
36 oreo cookies (that’s one package of regular oreos)
1 (8 oz) box of cream cheese
2 cups melted chocolate
1/4 cup crushed peppermint
Mix cookie crumbs and cream cheese until well blended. Shape into 48 (1 inch) balls. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate. Top with peppermint (I dipped 4 or 5 at a time and then topped with peppermint before the chocolate started to harden). Refrigerate for 1 hour or until hardened.
