Oreo Truffles

Hello!  It’s been a busy week over here in the mountains.  Last weekend was the Freestyle International at Deer Valley and the U.S. Grand Prix at Park City Mountain.  The major highlights were watching U.S. women’s snowboarder Chloe Kim snag a perfect 100 score from the judges after absolutely stomping the first ever back-to-back 1080’s by a women.  She rocks!!!!!!!  Check it out:

The U.S. women also ended up sweeping the podium, go U.S. chicks!!  For men’s, U.S. Snowboarder Matt Ladley also snagged the gold!  Check out his winning run here:

Anyways!  Back to the real world, and Valentine’s Day is coming up this weekend!  It’s on a Sunday, that means you have no excuse to NOT make these ridiculously easy and delicious oreo truffles for your Valentine!

You could buy the ingredients over the week, and then Saturday you can throw them together!  Your Valentine will be impressed…. especially since they’re vegan too, woohoo!!  Just a quick substitute of tofutti and non-dairy chocolate chips will do the trick.  Oreos are actually vegan already (the cream is oil based not dairy based).  I tested this recipe a couple weekends ago, and my Valentine approved.  We kept them in the fridge, I think they taste better that way (they get a little too soft if you leave them out).

This recipe could not be easier.  Just blend a package of oreos into crumbs, then mix in a package of vegan cream cheese (like Tofutti) until well combined.  I ended up ditching the fork and mixed with my hands… Next roll into little truffle sized balls and set aside while you melt your vegan chocolate.

Ready for their chocolate bath…

Once the vegan chocolate chips are melted (in the microwave or in a stove top double boiler) just dip the truffles into the chocolate, then keep in the fridge to set.  So easy!

A delicious and easy vegan truffle recipe with only 3 ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 1 package oreos
  • 1 8 oz package of vegan cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups vegan chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Add the oreos to a food processor and mix completely, it should look like small crumbs of oreos when finished.
  2. Pour the oreo crumbs into a mixing bowl, and add in the vegan cream cheese. Mix until well combined with a fork or with your hands.
  3. Roll the dough into small truffle sized balls with your hands. To help with sticking, you could spray some coconut oil on your hands.
  4. Now melt the vegan chocolate chips, either in the microwave (checking often & stirring) or over the stove in a double boiler (or create your own double boiler).
  5. When the chocolate has completely melted, dip the truffles in the chocolate to coat completely. Once all the truffles are dipped, place in the fridge to set. Enjoy!

    Hi Jenn,

    These look pretty tasty! (I might have to substitute a couple of the ingredients
    though! I’m good with the oreos.)

    Love,
    Auntie Pat
