Cheap, Easy, Delicious Treats That'll Leave Them Drooling...

I was perusing the web looking for a dessert for the anniversary dinner I was cooking for @Nando1 for our belated 3-year anniversary and found this gem. Nando L-O-V-E-S all things chocolate and Oreos, in fact, he became quite upset when they stopped making Fudge-covered Oreos. I thought this would be a perfect match and it looked easy enough that even I, in my Easy Bake-sized kitchen, could conquer.

Tip #1: When you melt the chocolate, continuously stir the chocolate so that it doesn't burn.
Tip #2: Feel free to use semi-sweet chocolate chips (they're cheaper and do the trick, I used 2 8oz bags)
Tip #3: You can use a blender to "crush" the Oreos into crumbs.
Tip #4: For an extra rich flavor, add some extra chocolate chips into the Oreo/Cream Cheese mixture
Tip #4: You can roll the balls with a fork, toothpick or spoon to make sure all sides are covered.
Tip #6: Use two forks to take the balls out of the chocolate to get rid of any excess chocolate. I usually balance a ball on one fork and use the other fork to swipe any extra chocolate.

Apparently, my fridge is Super-Fridge and these were ready super quick. With the extra chocolate, I covered some whole Oreo cookies, just to experiment and see if I could make Nando's long-lost fudge-covered Oreos. As soon as I tasted the first bite of the truffle, I was pretty amazed- they were SO good! The fudge-covered Oreos turned out better than I had thought and Nando was then incredibly relieved and excited to have his faves back. I gave some truffles to my neighbor for V Day/President's Day since she missed out on my Christmas fudge and she texted me, "OMG! These are AH-MAZING!!!!!"

So, if you're looking for a cheap, easy, delicious treat to bring to dinner parties or amaze loved ones- give these a try!

Hardly healthy, but delicious! I hadn't even realized it, but I haven't had an Oreo for probably close to five years. As a chocolate lover, I miss them, but as a vegetarian I just can't see myself enjoying them in the future. Too bad, because those look yummy!
February 17, 2010
Do you mean vegan? Because even vegetarians can enjoy chocolate and creme-filled cookies, no meat!
February 17, 2010
No, vegetarians. If I'm not mistaken there's gelatin in the cream and animal products used as pereservatives in the flour.

ohhh....well, I will have to look into that for you! I have no clue cuz I eat everything ;p

No, he's referring to a little video of an old man dancing. He thinks it's funny, but I don't even do the moonwalk. LOL!

February 17, 2010

Hey love, I peeped this on your blog and I'm so glad that you shared this on Lunch!  I haven't tried it yet, but I already love it!  It's three of my favorite ingredients rolled up in one :D  I'm definitely going to have to try this, but I already know that there's one change that I'm going to make -- I'm going to roll the entire ball in Oreo crumbs! ;)

By the way, have you checked out @PattyP's review of the Thomas Keller Oreo?  Maybe you can make totally homemade Oreo Truffles!
February 17, 2010
No, I hadn't checked out her review but, I will- thanks! These are SOOOO good, hope you enjoy!
