It’s the end of Spooky Szn, but these Halloween Oreo Truffles are more of a treat than a trick!
Halloween is such a fun holiday. Scary movies, creative costumes, sweets…
One of my favorite Halloween memories has been going to Chicago to visit one of my best friends. We went to this super scary haunted house on Friday night, and then that next day we donned our superhero costumes (Wonder Woman & Batgirl) and did a Halloween bar hop!
Unfortunately, every holiday in 2020 has looked so different this year. So we have to make our (safe) fun however we can.
For a really fun and even tastier activity, you HAVE to try my Halloween Oreo Truffles!
Oreo Truffles were one of the first desserts that I ventured out and made on my own back in high school. The recipe is so simple but so decadent. I actually have a vivid memory of one of my pregnant friends requesting an entire batch of these – and who am I to deny a sugar craving??
You can choose between mummies or the monsters or be fancy like me and do both. These make a great treat for a socially distanced Halloween party, or (if you’re going into the office) bring these in to brighten up everyone’s day! The candy eyes are just so cute and really make it look like these take a lot of effort, even though they are super low maintenance.
My favorite part of making these is how much freedom you have. Melting chocolate is notoriously unpredictable; there’s a lot of things that can go wrong. Since monsters are supposed to be ugly anyway, you don’t have to worry about getting the chocolate coating picture perfect!
What’s your favorite Halloween tradition and how are you celebrating in 2020?
Halloween Oreo Truffles (Only 4 Ingredients!)
- 1 package Oreo sandwich cookies
- 8 oz. cream cheese softened
- 12 oz. vanilla candy coating
- 10 0z. royal blue candy melts
- 0.88 oz. mini candy eyeballs
- Ensure that the cream cheese is softened and room temperature.
- Using a food processor or blender (or your hands), crush Oreos into a fine powder.
- In a large bowl, mix Oreo crumbles and cream cheese until combined. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.
- Using a mini ice cream scoop, create truffles. Ensure you pack the Oreo mixture in the scoop and use your hands to smoothly roll them if needed.
- Place the truffles on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and place in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
- Melt the chocolate candy coating according to the package instructions – I've used the microwave as well as the stovetop directions.
- Dip half of the truffles into the white chocolate mixture using a fork and set them back on the parchment paper. Freeze for 5-10 minutes until solid.
- Add the remaining white chocolate to a pastry bag or a Ziploc bag with the corner snipped off. Make drizzles onto the truffles to resemble mummy wraps. Add a dot of white chocolate to the back of candy eyeballs and add to the truffles. Freeze once more until solid.
- Melt the royal blue candy melts according to the package instructions. You want the chocolate to be thick.
- Use a knife (or your fingers!) and cover the remaining truffles to give a "fur" effect. I've also used a piping bag and Wilton piping tip. Stick the candy eyeballs onto the truffles in a random sequence. Freeze until solid. Enjoy, and Happy Halloween!
