This is a perfect activity to get the children involved in – there’s a role for everybody when making Oreo Truffles! Why not print this recipe out and see if your children can follow it?
You’ll not only impress your friends and family with the delicious result of this recipe, but it’s a great opportunity for children to learn about baking, patience and self-control (which is especially difficult with all the delicious ingredients around)!
- 200g oreo biscuits
- 100g cream cheese
- 200g chocolate
- Vanilla extract
Now we have all of our ingredients, let’s make Oreo Truffles!
Step 1: Crush Those Biscuits!
Take all the oreos out of their packet and put them into a food bag. Grab your rolling pin and give them a good bash until they are just crumbs. Alternatively you can use a food processor too.
Step 2: Mix Mix Mix!
Put the Cream Cheese in a large bowl and add a splash of Vanilla Extract and mix through. We add the vanilla extract because the cream cheese is often very cheesy, so the vanilla sweetens it and adds flavour!
Step 3: Combine!
Combine the bashed oreos with the cream cheese and vanilla extract and mix it thoroughly. The more oreo crumbles that go in, the harder it becomes to mix but make sure to add as much as possible.
Step 4: Make the Truffles!
Take a teaspoon of the oreo mixture and roll it in your hands to make a small ball. The truffles can be made bigger, but they are very thick and sweet so smaller ones are usually more enjoyable. Continue to roll them into balls and put them onto a sheet of baking parchment until you have no mixture left!
Step 5: Dip and Wait!
Leave the truffles to cool for at least an hour – this allows them to become slightly harder and less sticky. Making them easier to dip in the chocolate. You can even leave them overnight!
Just before taking the truffles out, start to melt your chocolate, it’s best suited if you use a larger bowl so it is easier to manoeuvre the truffles.
Whilst you and your family wait, why not try out one of the other activities we have on our website!
Step 6: Decorate!
Once the chocolate has completely melted, get two forks, put a truffle on the fork and dip in in the chocolate until it is totally covered. Take it out and use the other fork to help move the truffle from one to another to drain the excess chocolate back into the bowl.
Put the truffle down on the paper – then you have the option to either put some of the left over oreo or sprinkles on top of it, or wait until it has dried to pipe some lines of melted chocolate.
Step 7: Set and Enjoy!
Leave the truffles to set. Once set, get the family together and enjoy!
