Fictional Foods: Freaking Delicious Oreo Truffles

In preparation for the Love, Simon movie (which I am seeing later today which is ridiculously exciting!) I decided to read Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda again. It’s such a fantastic book, and even the second time around it was giving me all the feels.

However I definitely should have grabbed a pack of Oreos as a reading snack because I had forgotten just how obsessed Simon was with them! So when I finished the book, I was left craving all kinds of delicious Oreo treats.

 

All right – I have a sneaking suspicion that you’re not 100% committed to your Oreo diet. The guidelines are really pretty basic. No excuses. Breakfast is obviously an Oreo granola bar or Oreo Pop-Tart. No, they’re not gross. Shut up. They’re amazing. Lunch should be Oreo pizza with an Oreo milkshake and a couple of those Oreo Truffles my mom makes (a.k.a the most delicious freaking things in the universe). Dinner is deep-fried Oreos served on top of Oreo ice cream, and for a drink, it’s Oreos dissolved in milk. No water. Only Oreo milk. Dessert can be Oreos straight up. Sound reasonable? It’s for your health, Blue.

As amazing as they all sound, I have to agree with Simon and say that Oreo Truffles are pretty freaking delicious. So I decided I just had to make some for myself! Truffles are a pretty standard dessert at our family get togethers, and I’ve made them with all sorts of different ingredients, but Oreo Truffles are always a crowd favourite. These yummy treats are so easy to make, you really have no excuses.

INGREDIENTS 

  • 2x Packets Original Oreos
    250g Cream Cheese
    250g Block of your favourite Chocolate (I used 50% Dark Whittakers)

METHOD

  1. Crush up the Oreos in whatever way works best for you. I the end of a rolling pin.
  2. Add the Cream Cheese to the Oreos and mix until combined.
  3. Roll the mix into small balls, then put the balls in the fridge to set.
  4. Melt the Chocolate, either over the stove or in the microwave.
  5. Dip in melted Chocolate and place on a baking paper covered tray.
  6. Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until Chocolate has completely set.
  7. Keep stored in an air tight container in the fridge, or you can pop them in the freezer for a longer lasting treat.
