Easter Egg Oreo Truffles

You didn't see this one comin', did ya? I hadn't said a "peep" about Easter all week because I was just waiting to drop these bad boys on y'all. Behold: Easter Egg Oreo Truffles.

But, how can one possibly enjoy crushed Oreos any more delicious than, say, whole ones dipped in milk? Well, here are a few good ways: you gotta mix the crumbs with cream cheese. You gotta cover them in a white chocolate shell. You gotta drizzle them in decadent white (or dark) chocolate. Is that enough convincing?

So rich and creamy. Forget about that coconut or carrot cake this Easter, you'll want to hang closely around the dessert table for these eggscelent treats.

I made them around Christmas time as a holiday treat and thought it would be fun to attempt to make them egg-shaped for Easter and use white chocolate and food coloring to decorate them. You still have time to make these for your Easter dinners this weekend - all you need is 1 package of Oreos, 1 8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened, about 14 ounces of baking chocolate, and food coloring. It makes for a fun cooking activity with loved ones as well (Brian was in charge of chocolate melting and coloring)! That's what the holidays are all about, after all.

Easter Bunny: please leave a dozen of these in my basket Easter morning. Thanks.


Oreo Truffles

  • 1 (16 ounce) package of Oreos 
  • 1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese, softened 
  • 2 (7 ounce) packages Baker’s Chocolate (semi-sweet or white), melted

1. Chop up Oreos finely in food processor and set aside.  Mix together the Oreos with ½-1 package of softened cream cheese until the Oreos are well combined.  Roll into balls (or egg shape) and set onto wax paper and put into the freezer for at least 15 minutes.

2. While the balls are in the freezer melt the chocolate according to package. If making Easter Eggs with white chocolate, divide chocolate into separate bowls and add desired food coloring.

3. Take the Oreo balls out of the freezer and roll them into the melted chocolate. Garnish with Oreo crumbs or drizzle with melted chocolate.  Place back onto the wax paper and back into the freezer to set.

For chocolate drizzle: melt chocolate according to package. Spoon into the corner of one sandwich-size bag. Cut a tiny hole in the corner of the bag and slowly move back and forth over the truffle while squeezing the chocolate out.
