Heart Oreo Truffles

Valentine’s Day is almost here. Do you know what you are giving to your sweetheart? How about making some super simple Oreo truffles shaped like loving hearts? These are super easy, you pick the flavor and colors, and they make a wonderful heartfelt gift.

Oreo truffles are super duper easy. You just toss an entire package of Oreos into a food processor and turn them to crumbs, then ad in an 8 ounce brick of cream cheese. Process, roll, dip into melted chocolate and give to someone you love (or eat them yourself)! How simple is that? And oh so yummy!

These are good served at room temperature or chilled. I think they are better from the fridge :) I used the vanilla Oreos for this batch but have also used peanut butter and the mint Oreos, both were delicious. You can certainly make some or all in balls as well!

1 package Oreos, any flavor, Double Stuff works too
1 8-oz package cream cheese
Good quality chocolate for dipping (or almond bark)
White chocolate for drizzling (optional)

Note: if using regular chocolate chips for the coating you will need to add a tablespoon or two before you melt them. Chocolate chips are not as high quality chocolate and will melt a bit thick. Adding the shortening helps to loosen that up.

Process Oreos in your food processor. Add cream cheese and process until completely combined. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper and use a cookie scoop to scoop out uniform amounts of the Oreo dough. Roll each one into a ball. Chill on the sheet for about an hour.

Remove from fridge and pinch the bottom of the ball to form the bottom of the heart. Use a butter knife, toothpick or skewer to dent the top end of the ball to form the heart humps. Complete for all and chill in the freezer for 30 minutes. Dip the hearts into chocolate and place on waxed paper lined baking sheet. Drizzle with white chocolate and/or a combination of chocolate and white chocolate. Chill.

    Oreo truffles (particularly the mint ones) are a favorite treat in our house. I have never done them in heart shapes before. Adorable!
