A little while ago I received an early Christmas present from my friend Alissa. Oreo truffles. To say they were delicious would be an understatement. There are no words to describe their deliciousness. At first bite I couldn’t tell that they were made with oreos. But then came that delicious & unmistakable Oreo taste. Needless to say they didn’t last long in the Crafty Chai household.
The lovely Alissa, along with being a truffle-making genius, writes her own blog called The Pescetonian. This is where she writes reviews of places she eats and puts her recipes for the world to enjoy. After eating the oreo truffles, I hoped she put the recipe up so that I could give them a whirl and impress friends and family over the festive period. I wasn’t disappointed and neither were they. Alissa’s recipe is easy to follow & I really liked the stage by stage pictures so that I knew I was doing it right.
I didn’t use white chocolate because the people I was making them for aren’t fans of it so stuck with milk & dark chocolate. A few of them watched me make them (no pressure!) & were a bit freaked out by the mixture of oreos and cream cheese but all of that attitude disappeared when they tasted them! I used edible glitter & edible stars for the decoration as I didn’t have much chocolate left for decorating. These are fantastic little truffles that are easy to make, look very impressive and taste amazing. You won’t be disappointed! x
