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 heart oreo truffles are super easy, you pick the flavor and colors, and they make a wonderful heartfelt Valentine’s Day edible gift!
Heart Oreo Truffles
Oreo truffles are super duper easy. You just toss an entire package of Oreos into a food processor, turn them into crumbs, then add 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 heart Oreo truffles would make a great take-along dessert for parties or to bring to the office on Valentine’s Day.
Ingredients for Heart Oreo Truffles
- 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)
Helpful Kitchen Tools
These are good served at room temperature or chilled. I think they are better straight 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!
