Oreo Cookie Truffles

Happy Sunday … It’s a “short but sweet” kinda day… 

Have you ever had an oreo cookie truffle?  I didn’t even know they existed until last week when I stumbled upon the recipe.  The prep is easy but the dipping can get a little tricky.  With a little patience you can definitely do this!

Oreo Truffles

Here are a few of my tips for using chocolate as a coating for cookies and treats, etc..

  • melt over a double boiler on low 
  • keep the chocolate warm (not hot)  
  • add a little vegetable oil/shortening to the mix to thin it out (I used a tablespoon)

This was almost as fun as the Nutella Krispy Crunch Treats:  Nutella Krispy Crunch Treats
