Desserts are my life! If I could skip every meal and jump right to dessert without the consequences of obesity or a toothless smile I whole heartedly would! Being a sweets lady and go to pastry creator for my fiancé’s private catering business, Chef Dan, my imagination is constantly dreaming up new and exquisite treats for our clients to enjoy. After each party, the compliments for our creativeness and tastiness come rolling in. Whether male or female, old or young everyone’s favorite dessert proves to be the easiest in my repertiore: Oreo Truffles.
The Oreo truffle came about when I happened upon a chocolate-like sphere in my step-mother’s refrigerator. Inquisitively inspecting the new discovery, she proceeded to explain a quick dessert was necessary for a last minute invite. This was the first recipe to pop up online. One taste and I fell quite hard. Sure, I was an Oreo lover before (I even named my dog Oreo) but this was an elegantly clever spin on America’s beloved cookie. I asked for her recipe and the rest was history.
We launched the Oreo truffle at our first client event and the feed back was overwhelmingly positive. Rave reviews flooded our website and more client’s requested this masquerader. Watching that first bite proves to be sheer enjoyment as each ask with a mouthful of gooey truffle, “How is this made? It must have taken hours!” I just give a chuckle and say, “It’s magic!” Now baking may seem magical but it requires much dedication, science, and willingness to preserver. I am prepared to explain the step by step process of Oreo truffle (which includes zero baking). You will need:
-1 package of Oreo cookies (I like to use double stuffed)
-8 oz. of cream cheese
-1 bag of white chocolate (or chocolate flavor of your choosing)
Grind the Oreos in a food processor. Mix Oreo crumbs with the cream cheese. Roll into spheres with hands. Melt chocolate and drizzle (or dip) the truffle. Add sprinkles or decorations if needed. Pop in the refrigerator to harden. And done!
Our truffles receive a full make over for each client and their specific party needs. During Halloween Vanilla Oreos costumed as eyeballs for the party. Valentine’s Day the limited edition Red Velvet Oreos took on the infamous heart shape. Dyed white chocolate of pastels such as purple, pink, yellow, and blue made for a colorful Easter. And Christmas our truffles come wrapped with the traditional red and green.
Whether a simple occasion or elegant affair, the Oreo truffle can dazzle your guests and leave you as little prep time as possible. Give them a whirl at your next BBQ this summer. These little truffles disappear quickly, so make sure to treat yourself!
