V Day is just around the corner so you may be looking for some simple treats to put together for a classroom party or other festivities. This recipe checks all those boxes. I was happily surprised to run into Lemon Creme Oreos as you may know from my other posts that lemon is pretty much my husband's only go-to dessert flavor. Once in a while he'll go for something with berries or maybe an apple pie, but he'd rather game meat over dessert any day. Lemon seems to be the exception to the rule.
This recipe requires no baking and can easily be decorated with sprinkles for any holiday, but we went with the red, white and pink for Valentine's Day here. You could easily modify this for any flavor of Oreo cookie and/or double the recipe. This single batch makes approximately 20 truffles. I'm all about some easy recipes these days as I've officially rolled into my third trimester!
Here's what you'll need:
-2/3 package of Lemon Creme Oreos
-1 package cream cheese (leave out to bring up to room temperature)
-1 package white chocolate chips
-sprinkles for decorating
Place the Oreos in a food processor and process until there are no big chunks left. Without a food processor, you can also place in a freezer bag and smash with a rolling pin. This will give you a mild workout as well! Place the cream cheese and the processed Oreos in the bowl of a stand mixer and stir until well combined. If you don't have a stand mixer, the next easiest way to do this is by mashing it all together with your hands. Once combined, place the bowl in the fridge to chill for about 30-60 minutes. Using spoons or a cookie scooper, shape the batter into bite sized balls and place on a parchment paper lined cookie tray. Return to the fridge to chill while you prepare the white chocolate.
Using a double boiler method, melt the white chocolate and dip/roll each ball into the chocolate and return to the parchment paper lined tray. Add your sprinkles before the chocolate sets and return the truffles to the fridge to set for an hour. Done!
