Red Velvet Oreo Truffles

Red Velvet Oreo Truffles

This weekend, Fatima and I took a break from the city and headed up to Connecticut to spend Valentine’s Day with my family. As we stated in our UncommonGoods post, my family would get together for a nice dinner on Valentine’s Day. This weekend, my parents hosted a Valentine’s dinner filled with filet mignon, our parmesan-garlic & lime brussel sprouts, and roasted red potatoes.

For dessert, my aunt brought over an apple pie, my uncle made a delicious cookie cake and red velvet cake, and Fatima and I made red velvet Oreo truffles. We took advantage of Oreo’s limited edition red velvet flavor to make a classic dessert.

Oreo makes smaller packages with their limited edition lines, so we had to use two packages of the red velvet Oreos instead of just one. Below is a recipe for Oreo truffles (using whatever flavor Oreo and chocolate you’d like).

Oreo Truffles

  • 1 package of Oreos (about 14 oz)
  • 8oz package of cream cheese, at room temperature
  • White, milk, or dark melting chocolate
  1. Crush up the package of Oreos.
  2. Beat together with the cream cheese until they are completely combined, and then some.
  3. Scoop tablespoon size balls out and roll.
  4. Place balls on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Repeat with all of the dough.
  5. Place balls in a freezer for about 20 minutes.
  6. Melt your chocolate according to the directions on the back of the package. We melted chocolate in the microwave; 30 seconds at a time on defrost, stirring after each nuke.
  7. Place a cooling rack over parchment paper on your counter.
  8. Dip the near-frozen balls into the melted chocolate and leave to harden on the cooling rack. The excess chocolate will drip onto the parchment paper.
  9. Repeat until all balls are covered in chocolate.
  10. Place balls in the fridge to set, and remove about 5 minutes before consuming.
