Remember last week when I shared my recipe for 2 Ingredient, No Bake Oreo Truffles with you? They are good…super good. Well I also found a recipe on (where else?) Pinterest for Peppermint Oreo Bites. You say potato, I say potat-o. The recipe is basically the same as my Oreo Truffles, except you use Peppermint Oreos instead of regular ones. Now I never turn down peppermint anything, so I thought I’d try them out. Here is my version of the recipe for Peppermint Oreo Truffles.
Why do I call them Perfectly Imperfect Peppermint Oreo Truffles? Because if you look at the ones on the pin that I pinned, they look perfect. Take a look at mine and not so much. The reason I left them messy and imperfect is because after the white chocolate is melted and gets hard again, the kids LOVE it. So if I make them the imperfect way, there’s lots of white chocolate around the Peppermint Oreo Truffle! And also because I let the kids sprinkle the red sugar over the top and they don’t get it all even. Of course, I think they look perfect as is.
Peppermint Oreo Truffles
- 1 package Peppermint Oreo cookies
- 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
- 8 ounces (about half of a regular sized package) white chocolate chips
- Crush the Oreo cookies in the blender until all are well crushed. No blender? You can put them all in a large Ziploc plastic bag and smash them until smooth. Just make sure not to leave any air in the bag or youâ??ll have cookie crumbs everywhere!
- Mix the cream cheese and Oreo crumbs until well blended.
- Form about 1-inch balls and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Place them in the freezer for about an hour or until firm.
- Place the white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe container for 30 seconds and mix. Heat for an additional 30 seconds until all melted.
- Dip the cold Oreo balls in the melted white chocolate and place back on the parchment paper. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
