Raspberry Oreo Truffles- And one last reminder about Breast Cancer Awareness!

Raspberry Oreo Truffles

I was looking for a way to wrap up a successful Breast Cancer Awareness Month and stumbled upon this recipe from the Mod Housewife.  Brilliant! I have to say- it is hardt to go wrong with Oreo’s, not to mention I had half of a pack left from some cupcakes I made a couple of weeks ago.  These are super fast, really easy and fun for the whole family to get involved in! 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pkg. (4 oz.)  cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 pkg. (16 oz pack) Oreo cookies, finely crushed
  • 1/8 cup raspberry jam
  • 1 pkg. (8 squares each) Baker’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted

Mix cream cheese, Oreo’s and raspberry jam until well blended.  Chill in freezer for 15 minutes then scoop into 1 inch balls.  Place back in freezer and melt chocolate, following package directions.  Remove balls from freezer and dip into the melted chocolate, placing on wax or parchment paper to set. 

Decorate as you wish, I melted a bit of white chocolate and added a couple of drops of pink food coloring.  Topping the truffles with a bit of the pink chocolate and then dunked them into pink sanding sugar.  The same could be done with any color or even a simple white chocolate drizzle.  Whatever’s clever- more fun the better!

Raspberry Oreo Truffles- Messy but delicious!

A tip from the Mod Housewife

HOW TO EASILY DIP COOKIE BALLS

To easily coat cookie balls with the melted chocolate, add balls, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use 2 forks to roll balls in chocolate until evenly coated. Remove balls with forks, letting excess chocolate drip back into bowl. Place balls in prepared pan; let stand until chocolate coating is firm

Raspberry Oreo Truffles, one is good, but two is better!

Enjoy!  And remember to get your check ups!
