Oreo Truffles

This morning I ran the OUC Half Marathon. It was a good race and I PRed, but more on that later.

Right now, I’m going to rock your world and the little world all your taste buds live in with the easiest Oreo truffles ever. They are probably the most time consuming thing I make but really, how can you go wrong with a 3ish-ingredient recipe?

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 package reduced fat Oreos
  • 8oz (1 block) fat-free cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 package semi-sweet Baker’s chocolate

Yes, Baker’s coconut is in there but that’s why I said “3-ish ingredients”
Oh, don’t use regular cream cheese or Oreos because you think it tastes better. I’m telling you now…you cannot tell the difference. 1 out of 3 of my husband’s/future husband’s agree.

Here’s what you do:
Take that package of Oreos and put them into a gallon Ziploc bag. Feel free to sample the Oreos to make sure they’re safe.

Now beat those Oreos like they’re trying to steal your purse. You want to make sure they are ground up pretty well. I’m sure you could use a food processor too, but I like punching Oreos.

The consistency should look like this.
Mix the softened cream cheese in the Oreos until they are completely coated and look like a present your dog left for you.

Roll the Oreo/cream cheese mixture into balls with your hand until it looks like a large bunny invaded your home.
This gets messy. I’m warning you now. I used powerdered sugar on my hands to roll them for the first time and it helped with the mess a lot.

Melt the Baker’s chocolate completely. I used the microwave.

Using a spoon, put about half a spoonful of Baker’s chocolate on top of each truffle.

Close up pics of food always look so artsy. Why does my attempt look like someone lost a fight with fiber?
Optional: Add a topping to the truffles. I used coconut but I’m sure you can get more creative than me.
Put these babies in the fridge for a little while so the chocolate hardens…and enjoy!

If you “cook” like me, your kitchen will probably look like this afterwards.

And if you “clean” like me, you used a Dyson to clean the kitchen counter.
