Oreo Truffles

Level of Difficulty: anyone can do it
Pots/Pans Used: one

Ingredients

1 package oreos (yes, they're vegan. Or you could use a cookie of your choice of the healthier variety)
2 tubs plain Tofutti vegan cream cheese
1 bag vegan chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet Ghirardelli)

Variations: you could try rolling them in coconut (yum!), nuts or sprinkles!

Lemme get one thing straight: this is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not on my diet and in no way healthy for you. That being said, they are absolutely heavenly. Seriously, this recipe makes a lot so if you don't want the temptation around, just try a couple and give the rest as a gift. trust me, who ever you gift them to will be eternally grateful. Or you could always be selfish and indulge for once. Either way, try this recipe.......now!!

Simple as this: crush the entire bag of cookies. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese with all the crushed cookies. Cover a baking sheet with a sheet of parchment paper. Make doughnut hole sized balls out of the cream cheese/cookie mix and lay them out on the paper. Using a double broiler, melt the chocolate chips. Using two spoons, spoon the melted chocolate over the balls, until well coated. Repeat with all, placing them back on the parchment paper. Let them cool in the fridge until the chocolate hardens. The hard chocolate shell coating and the surprisingly creamy center is the perfect combination of decadent textures. I have no doubts you will love this recipe!!

I was very lucky to have a lovely Easter dinner with the main course being eggplant parmesan (March post) and these decadent little treats for dessert. Both were delicious. Also got to try the kale chips (January post), yummy. Thanks Sammi!

very good, I made these and package them up as a treat bag for a Black and White themed stagette. Super delicious - however they need to be kept cold, they get abit melty.

Unfortunately, Oreos are made using sugar ground with animal bone char. I'm not Vegan, but I know the Vegan lifestyle is taken seriously. I want to make sure any Vegans seeing this are aware that Oreos are not made without use of animal products (bone char). But I want to also communicate that although the use of animal bone char to refine sugar has been confirmed, not ALL sugar suppliers use it. ♥
