How to Make Christmas Oreo Truffles

by Kinsey Hein

In the steps I have the different colors shown, but it's all from the same project. These are a hit at any holiday party!

Supplies

  • 1 Package Oreos
  • 1 Block cream cheese
  • Green candy coating
  • Red candy coating
  • Dark chocolate candy coating
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Put block of cream cheese out to warm up a bit while you're starting on the Oreos. Don't get it out too early.

    Step 2

    Put the whole package of Oreos in a double plastic bag.

    Step 3

    Smash them!

    Step 4

    Pour the crushed Oreos into a large mixing bowl.

    Step 5

    Wash your hands.

    Step 6

    Add the block of cream cheese.

    Step 7

    Mix!

    Step 8

    Once it is thoroughly mixed, roll it into a ball.

    Step 9

    Cover with plastic wrap.

    Step 10

    Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

    Step 11

    Remove from refrigerator.

    Step 12

    Take a chunk of the large Oreo ball...

    Step 13

    And roll it into a small ball.

    Step 14

    Repeat.

    Step 15

    Cover with plastic wrap.

    Step 16

    Refrigerate.

    Step 17

    Fill a large sauce pan about 1/3 full of water.

    Step 18

    Put a smaller empty saucepan inside.

    Step 19

    Allow water to simmer.

    Step 20

    Add candy coating.

    Step 21

    Stir occasionally.

    Step 22

    Cover cookie sheets with aluminum foil.

    Step 23

    Cover balls with candy coating.

    Step 24

    Place truffles on cookie sheet.

    Step 25

    Smooth candy coating. (Back one is smoothed, front one is not.)

    Step 26

    Decorate if you wish (red and green have chocolate drizzled on them; chocolate are plain). Enjoy! These were gone about 15 minutes after I got to the Christmas party!
