Chocolate Oreo Truffles

If I look outside the window now, I see a beautiful scenery of pure white snow, showered by the sun rays and little snowflakes falling down, glittering like diamond dust.

It is truly pretty! At times like this, I realize how I love to live here :)

All that inspired me to make these simple Chocolate Truffles, of course decorated with snow-shaped sugar sprinkles.

The base for these truffle is made the same way as the Cake Pops (recipe here), so basically with fresh creamy cheese, chocolate and Oreo cookies.

"Wonderful chocolate..."

Ingredients (about 20 small truffles):
  • about 90 g Oreo cookies
  • about 2 tablespoons fresh creamy cheese
  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • sugar sprinkles for decoration

Remove the vanilla filling of the cookies and crush them in a blender or with your hands to very fine crumbles. Put them into a bowl and add the cheese, one spoonful at a time, mixing with your hands. The dough is ready when it feels like modelling clay, it doesn't have to be sticky.
Make small balls from the dough, place them on a plate covered with a sheet of oven parchment and leave them in the refrigerator for some hours.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a pot. Dip the balls quickly but carefully in the melted chocolate and place them on a sheet of oven parchment (perhaps using two of teaspoons to grab them more easily).
Decorate right away with sugar sprinkles and put them back in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. If you want, you can place them into pretty paper cups like I did :)
