candy cane oreo truffles

I'm not sure how this blog went almost a full year without Oreo truffles.
These decadent cookie bites are so delicious, and SO easy. 
And with a little candy cane... a perfect treat for holiday entertaining.


These little guys pack a great chocolatey taste that's like Oreo on steroids. In a good way.

The recipe comes from... well all over the internet to be honest.
I first saw it on Bakerella. But it may have originated at Kraft.
And I just picked up a Ziploc flyer at the grocery store that had the recipe.
 
Regardless of where it started, now it's here...
1 package Oreo cookies
1 8oz bar softened cream cheese
1 bag of Wilton's candy melts
(or Baker's chocolate, or your favorite candy bark)


The most difficult part of this recipe?
Keeping yourself from eating any of the Oreos when you open the package. 
Why not? Because it will mess up your Oreo-to-cream cheese-ratio.


Start by crushing your cookies in a large plastic bag or between wax paper sheets.
Then mix in the cream cheese with the wooden spoon.

I would highly advise against leaving this mixture unattended while you melt your candy.


Roll the cookie mixture into small balls and dip into melted chocolate or candy coating.
You could be finished at this point, and your truffles would be delicious.
Set them on wax paper and pop in the fridge to set.

 OR.

You could add a minty holiday twist.


Take 3 or 4 candy canes and crush in a food processor or by other means.
Just be careful of your fingers when smashing candy with heavy stuff.


Then take a freshly coated truffle, and sprinkle it with crushed candy cane.
It adds some interesting texture, a nice minty flavor, and just looks pretty!


For variety, you can use candy cane flavored candy melts (the white with red flecks in the middle),
add mint flavor to your chocolate or candy, or even try using mint flavored Oreos.


Make these for your holiday party. Take them to the office. Take them to your in-law's.
I'm serious.  People will 'oooh' and 'ahhh' and 'mmmm'. People will love you. 
And I'll leave it up to you to decide to tell them how easy they were to make. Or not.

  3. It would be a great way to use up leftover candy cane! I make them year round actually, just leave off the candy cane and use non-holiday candy melt colors.
