There’s something so fun about turning a regular dessert into a sprinkle-tastic, colorful, flavor-carnival. Cupcakes with sprinkles? Yes! Frozen yogurt with sprinkles? Yeeessss! They say you eat with your eyes first, and my eyes (and stomach) want color! Last week, I showed you how to make a funfetti s’mores cheeseball
. Today, I want to show you how to up the color and sprinkle quotient on the staple Oreo-truffle.
These Oreo truffles are ridiculously rich and decadent, and perfect for a party. You can easily change the colors of candy melts to match your party colors. Continue reading for the recipe and tutorial.
- 15 Oreos ( I used the vanilla with vanilla cream Oreos)
- 1/4 brick of cream cheese
- Rainbow Sprinkles
- Candy Melts in 2-3 different colors or white coating chocolate dyed the colors you want with one drop of food coloring (If coloring your own chocolate melts, don’t use too much food color or your chocolate will seize. If that happens, just add a teaspoon of vegetable shortening to loosen it up again)
- Bowls, spoons, parchment paper lined tray
Begin by adding your Oreos and cream cheese to a food processor and pulsing until all the ingredients are mixed up and the mixture resembles a smooth paste.
Add your sprinkles and pulse a few more times to really incorporate the sprinkles. Remove the dough from the food processor and roll into 3/4 inch balls. Then, melt your coating chocolate.
Begin by dipping just the bottom half of the truffle ball. Then, lay it on the parchment lined tray to harden.
Once the chocolate has hardened, rewarm your melting chocolate and dip the other half of the truffle to create a two toned color block look. Then set them on the parchment tray again. I tried to do a triple color block look for mine, but they didn’t turn out as awesome as I would have liked. Next time I will take my own advice and just go for a two tone color block instead.
Once they’ve hardened, they are ready to serve. Or, you can keep them stored in an air-tight container for 1-2 days if you want to make them ahead of time. These are super delicious, so if you want any for yourself, I suggest hiding them. Enjoy!
