Melted Snowman Oreo Truffles

advent11Hi, everyone! I’m Britt and I’m a book blogger at Geronimo Reads. I heard Melanie was looking for some guest posts for December and thought I would offer a cute Christmas dessert, perfect for family gatherings or if you just want to experiment!  I’m a terrible baker (really, I am) so I love making no-bake truffles. These Oreo & white chocolate ones are to die for! And what better way of decorating for this winter than to make them into melting snowman?!

You will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) brick cream cheese, softened
  • 36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed
  • 16 oz. white candy coating wafers, melted
  • 48 Mini OREO Bite Size Cookies
  •  decorations: decorating icing or gel; multi-colored sprinkles

Instructions:

  1. After crushing the Oreo cookies, whether it be with a good ‘ole rolling pin or in a food processor, mix together the finely crushed cookies and cream cheese until well combined.
  2. Shape the mixture into 1-inch balls and place in single lines on a cookie sheet. Put in the fridge for 20 minutes to set.
  3. Dip the balls into the melted white chocolate, allowing the excess chocolate to pool at the bottom of each ball. Decorate with whichever ingredients you like.
  4. Place mini Oreo cookies on top of the ball before chocolate hardens.
  5. Set back in fridge for 1 hr or until firm. Keep refrigerated.

Notes:
I personally would put the balls into the freezer for 30 minutes, rather than the fridge. I noticed that the balls were still soft and some broke while trying to coat in the chocolate. I used gel icing to decorate the snowman’s face, but I would recommend something that will set nicely. The gel doesn’t harden even after being in the fridge over night.
