Ingredients

  • 200g Oreo Cookies/Biscuits
  • 100g Cream Cheese
  • 200g Baking Chocolate.
  • Vanilla Extract

Method

    1. Take all the Oreo's out of their packet and put them into a food bag. Grab your rolling pin and give them a good bash until they are just crumbs. (You may need to double bag them, as the bag may burst.) Alternatively you can use a food processor.
    2. 2. Put the Cream Cheese in a large bowl and add a splash of Vanilla Extract and mix through. The reason I add the Vanilla Extract it Cream Cheese is often very cheesy, the vanilla sweetens it!
    3. Add the bashed Oreo's to the Cream Cheese & Vanilla mix and mix it thoroughly. The more Oreo that goes in the harder it becomes to mix but ensure you add pretty much all of it. You may not be able to use all the Oreo's as they have an inconsistent filling and may make a thicker mixture. (If you have Oreo's left over, it's perfect for topping the Truffles once they've been coated in chocolate).
    4. Take approximately a tsp of the Oreo mixture and roll it in your hands to make a small ball. The truffles can be made bigger, but they are very thick and sweet so smaller ones are usually more enjoyable. Continue to roll them into balls and put them onto a sheet of baking parchment.
    5. The Oreo's ideally need at least at hour to cool, this allows them to become slightly harder and less sticky. Making them easier to dip in the chocolate. Although if longer than an hour suits it will not make a difference, I often leave them over night.
    6. Just before taking the Truffles out start to melt your Chocolate, it's best suited if you use a larger bowl so it is easier to manoeuvre the Truffles.
    7. Once the Chocolate has completely melted get two forks, put a truffle on the four and dip in in the chocolate until it is totally covered. Take it out and use the other fork to help move the truffle from one to another to drain the excess Chocolate back into the bowl. Put the Truffle down on the paper then you have the option to either put some of the left over Oreo on top of it, or wait until it's dried to add some lines of chocolate in a different colour.
    8. The longer the Truffles has been chilled, the easier the dipping usually is. If you have made small truffles you can use a Fondue dipping stick, this is often easier but it varies depending on your technique.
    9. Leave to set, then enjoy!

Made these last week for the first time and tried them out on my colleagues at school and the feedback was amazing. They all thought they were great. So easy to make and look and taste absolutely FAB. Might try mixing the oreos with bourbon biscs and see what the outcome it.......will let you know.

You can use which ever you like! I prefer to use White Chocolate, because I have a sweet tooth, but many of my friends use milk chocolate. It's a personal preference, although I would suggest white!
