Oreo Truffles

Today I have an extremely easy, no bake, delicious treat for you! This is one of our favorite potluck/fellowship recipes, because every time I bring it people comment on how good they are…but also because they are super simple!

With Halloween coming up a lot of us have parties we will be attending or if you’re like us you will have a harvest party at your church. These are perfect for those occasions! This is also something you can decorate for any season (they don’t have to be just pumpkins)!

Ingredients:

  • One package double stuff oreos (any flavor but I prefer original)
  • One package cream cheese
  • 1-2 bags of candy melts (any color you would like)
  • Green frosting for your pumpkin stems

Directions:

In a food processor crush up the entire package of Oreos.

Combine crushed Oreos and the entire package of room temperature cream cheese. Having the cream cheese at room temperature will make it much easier to combine.

Stir completely until all the Oreos and cream cheese are combined.

Refrigerate the Oreos mixture for about 1-1 1/2 hours (or freeze for about 30 minutes). You want the mixture to be stiff so that while you are rolling it into balls it stays together and doesn’t melt.

Roll into bite sized balls and place on to wax paper.

Refrigerate rolled balls for another 20-30 minutes.

Follow the instructions on your package of candy melts to melt them.

Place the Oreo balls into your melted candy melts and use a toothpick to move it around and completely coat it. Place it back onto your wax paper and remove the toothpick.

To decorate, use green icing to make stems.

For serving I used crushed Oreos for the dirt and arranged the pumpkins to look like a pumpkin patch!

Enjoy!

*note you will want to keep them cool until you are ready to serve them. When I take them to a potluck or fellowship I keep them in the freezer ready to go, until we are ready to leave the house.
