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.
– Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda
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.
- 2x Packets Original Oreos
250g Cream Cheese
250g Block of your favourite Chocolate (I used 50% Dark Whittakers)
- Crush up the Oreos in whatever way works best for you. I the end of a rolling pin.
- Add the Cream Cheese to the Oreos and mix until combined.
- Roll the mix into small balls, then put the balls in the fridge to set.
- Melt the Chocolate, either over the stove or in the microwave.
- Dip in melted Chocolate and place on a baking paper covered tray.
- Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until Chocolate has completely set.
- Keep stored in an air tight container in the fridge, or you can pop them in the freezer for a longer lasting treat.
