Oreo Cream Cheese Chocolate Truffles

It is not everyday that you turn 30. Today is that special day for me.

After having constant “surprises” every year on my birthday and getting a cake from my loved ones, I had to do something non-conventional for the big 3 – O! I decided to make my own cake. It is not fancy, just different. Everybody makes cakes and so did I. A simple vanilla cake with chocolate frosting. But its what I topped it with that makes it slightly different. Oreo Cream Cheese Chocolate Truffles! As divine as they sound, they tasted just as heavenly.

Ingredients

Oreo Cookies ……………………………….24 cookies

Cream Cheese ……………………………..10 square cubes (room temp)

Chocolate ……………………………………11/2 bars

Method

  1. Split the Oreo cookies and scrap off the cream inside.IMG_0918
  2. Give it a couple of spins in the food processor. For those of you who want a crunch in their truffles can leave it crumby.
  3. Add the cream cheese into the processor. Make sure the cream cheese is in room temperature while doing so. You will get a thick doughy paste.IMG_0920
  4. Using your hands make spherical shaped balls and let them rest in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.IMG_0921
  5. Melt and temper the chocolate bars, and dip the Oreo balls in it.
  6. Let the truffles set in the refrigerator for 5 minutes. Serve it as is or use it as a topping for any preferred dessert.IMG_0931

Note:

  • Do not try to process the cookies with its cream as it gets oily and extra sweet.
  • Make sure the chocolate is tempered or else you will have a melted mess in your hands.
