Looking for a fancy, yet easy to make and delicious Valentine’s Day gift? I have the recipe for you today! Cheesecake + Oreos + Truffles = total bliss. With only 3 INGREDIENTS, these Oreo Cheesecake Truffles would be great to make for your other half and they are perfect for literally any occasion! Crazy tasty AND quick to make – take these truffles to the next level by drizzling over melted white chocolate and sprinkling Oreo crumbs. Kids will LOVE making them and they will be a big hit with all the family!
I think you all know by now how much I love cheesecake? Oreo cheesecake is definitely one of my most favourite/top cheesecakes. I love anything cookies ‘n’ cream – I’m just a little bit addicted…But I’ve been wanting (and seriously craving!) to make these cheesecake truffles for so long now – they’ve always look amazing and fabulously delicious. So when I took my first bite I was transported to chocolate Oreo cheesecake h.e.a.v.e.n. They’re insanely good (and pretty damn addictive too…). I had to restrain myself from eating the entire tray!
This recipe will become your new go-to truffles recipe – for me regular truffles are way too rich! Why waste your time and effort on making regular truffles when you can make this INCREDIBLE recipe! They will become your guilty pleasure just like they’ve become mine!
Ingredients- Makes approx. 30 truffles
1 x 16 ounce packet of Oreos or chocolate sandwich cookies
1 x 8 ounce packet of cream cheese, softened at room temperature
340g packet of chocolate Candy melts or the same amount of milk/dark chocolate – melted and cooled slightly ready to cover truffles
Optional decorations –
White chocolate, melted for drizzling
1. First reserve 9 cookies for sprinkling later and set aside. Crush the remaining Oreos until a fine breadcrumb texture. Then tip into a medium-sized bowl along with the cream cheese. Mix with a spatula until it’s incorporated and almost “clumps” together.
2. Roll into roughly 30 balls, and place on a lined baking tray. Leave to harden in the refrigerator or freezer for 30 minutes until firm – it’s really important that they’re firm as if they’ve not the balls will fall apart in the chocolate!
3. Melt the chocolate/candy melts and coat each cheesecake truffle evenly – I like to use a fork to do this. Make sure you also shake off any excess chocolate. Place the truffle back on the baking tray and put back in the fridge for another 30 minutes to set.
Serve now and enjoy! I Like to finish by decorating with a drizzle of melted white chocolate and some extra Oreo crumbs! You can also scatter over any of your favourite sprinkles too! Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
Enjoy & Happy Weekend everyone!
