Purple Oreo Truffles

Spring came in like a lion so hopefully will go out like a lamb. With it’s arrival comes the nicer weather, grass, flowers and Easter! Today I have a recipe that could really be made anytime of year, but I think it is a good fit for the nice Spring weather that is hopefully coming our way shortly. It uses only four ingredients and is simple to make.

Purple Oreo Truffles

Crushed Oreo cookies wrapped in a candy melt with sprinkles!

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of Oreo cookies, finely crushed
  • 1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
  • Wilton Purple candy melts
  • Spring/Easter Sprinkles

Directions:

  1. Combine the crushed Oreo cookies with the cream cheese. A food processor or a hand mixer comes in very handy for this part.
  2. Once the Oreos and cream cheese are combined, roll the mixture into 1” balls and place on a cookie sheet. Let sit in the fridge for 45 minutes to an hour so they harden up.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl heat the Wilton candy melts stirring in 30 second increments until melted completely. Let cool 2-3 minutes.
  4. Dip the hardened truffles into the chocolate one at a time and add sprinkles on top before the chocolate sets.
  5. Repeat with the other truffles. Once all truffles are dipped and sprinkled place in the fridge to set for 1 hour before serving.
