Normally I make Oreo Truffles using regular Oreos, but this year I found Gingerbread flavoured Oreos! Of course I had to try making them into Gingerbread Oreo truffles using my regular recipe. Boy, oh boy, are they ever delicious! If these gingerbread oreos are going to be a regular holiday staple each year, I’ll be using them for truffles instead of the regular oreos! Don’t get me wrong, the other truffles are tasty too, they’re always a hit whenever I bring them to gatherings. 🙂
I thought the gingerbread flavour suited white chocolate best and I finished them off with a sprinkle of nutmeg!
- 1 bag of Gingerbread Oreos
- 1 block of cream cheese softened
- 1 package white baking chocolate
- Toppings: Nutmeg sprinkles…
Crush the Oreos into fine crumbs with a food processor or use a Ziploc bag with a rolling pin/hammer/rock… 🙂
Add the crumbs to a big bowl with the softened cream cheese. I use my Kitchenaid mixer to mix until it was all well incorporated.
Roll the cream cheese Oreo mixture into 1" balls (or whatever size you’d like) Place on a cookie sheet with waxed paper.
Chill in the fridge for about 1 hour.
When your truffles are almost finished chilling, start melting the chocolate slowly. (in the microwave or on the stove)
Drop one or two truffles into the melted chocolate and use a fork to remove them, letting the excess chocolate drip. Place them back on the waxed paper.
Now is when you want to add the toppings, before the chocolate hardens.
Store in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
You can also freeze these!
Because I know you’ll ask, I found the Gingerbread Oreos at Target and Walmart. I’ve also heard you can find them at Safeway. Let me know where you find them!
