Red Velvet Oreo Chocolate Truffles (or Cookie Balls if we’re being less “fancy!”).
If you are looking for a simple, sweet, but festive little treat to share with friends or neighbors or with those you love, these little Red Velvet Oreo Chocolate Truffles might be just the ticket.
They are so simple to make, but turn out so elegant and delish!
You simply crush red velvet (or your favorite flavor) Oreo cookies in the food processor, mix with a block of cream cheese, and make into balls that you dip into chocolate.
Sprinkles make them even more fun! (always!)
I gave little bags to neighbors with silly notes like “You are a SWEET neighbor” and “We LOVE having you for our neighbors.” I shared others with friends and family. They were a big hit!
Here is the recipe:
Red Velvet Oreo Chocolate Truffles (Cookie Balls)
- 1 12.2 oz pkg Red Velvet Oreo Cookies (or your favorite flavor)
- 1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
- 1 lb. Merckens milk chocolate (or your favorite)
- Sprinkles (optional)
Crush oreo cookies in food processor to fine crumbs. Add softened cream cheese and combine until “dough” forms.
Roll dough mixture into approximately 30 one-inch balls. Refrigerate for approximately 30 minutes.
Melt chocolate. I put mine in a tall, microwave-safe cup for one minute, stir, and then microwave for 30 more seconds.
Dip balls into melted chocolate with a fork, allowing excess to drip. Place on parchment paper. Decorate with sprinkles if desired. Allow to set approximately 30 minutes.
Cheers & Hugs,
