The Hunt For Delicious

This Easter weekend I was at my friend Amanda’s house and we decided that we wanted something yummy to eat. We decided that Oreo truffles would suffice to fill this need. So we immediately got to work.

The Pinterest post I followed was:

Ingredients:

1 Package of Classic Oreos

1 Bar of Cream Cheese (Any brand you prefer)

1 Bag of Dark Chocolate Chips

Almond Milk (or your milk of choice)

1, 1 gallon zip lock bag

Toothpicks

Wax Paper

1 Mixing Bowl

1-2 Baking Sheet(s)

Step 1: We placed the cream cheese out so that it could loosen up a little bit for the next step. Next, we put the Oreos in a gallon zip lock back, then we proceeded to crush them up until ground. (In this step we had the option to use a food processor, but we didn’t have one so we put it on the ground and squashed them like we were stepping in a wooden bucket of grapes. haha)

Step 2: Place the cream cheese in a mixing bowl and add the crumbled Oreos in. Mix until it is blended well into the mixture.

Step 3: GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY! And roll the mixture in balls and place onto the baking sheets that you line with wax paper. Set in freezer for 20-30 minutes (or until hard)

Step 4:  After the balls are hard you need to warm up your chocolate on the stove. We ended up having to add a splash of almond milk to make the chocolate completely melt in the pan.

Step 5: We stuck tooth picks into each ball and used that to dip them into the chocolate. However, if you have better ideas please do that! The tooth picks were having trouble picking the truffles back up.

Step 6: Place back onto baking sheet lined with wax paper. Once all of the truffles have been dipped and placed onto the baking sheet, place it into the fridge. Let them harden again for 20-30 minutes (or until hardened).

Step 7:  Voilà, It’s now time to enjoy!

Amanda and I had a blast making these and ate them throughout the weekend with her father and my roommate who came later in the weekend. They are very  It was probably bad having so many sweets around, but my taste buds weren’t complaining! Now back to healthy eating! (Well trying anyways!) I hope you enjoy making these as much as I did!

Best,
