Red Velvet Oreo Truffles Ingredients
- 20-24 Oreo Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies (12.2-Ounce Package)
- 12oz Bag of White Chocolate Melts or White Chocolate Chips – I used Wilton Bright White Candy Melts
- Assorted Valentine Sprinkles – I Used Wilton Sweetheart Valentine Sprinkles Mix
- Wilton Red Candy Melts – optional
- 8 oz brick of cream cheese – softened
How to Make Red Velvet Oreo Truffles
First, line a large baking pan with wax or parchment paper and set aside. Open the brick of cream cheese and place in a large mixing bowl to soften at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Pulse the red velvet Oreo cookies (the whole cookie) into crumbs in a food processor and add to the cream cheese. Mix well with a rubber spatula until well incorporated. Cover and chill for 30 minutes for easier handling.
Next, roll the Oreo mixture into 1 inch balls and place on the lined baking sheet. Chill for an additional 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a double boiler pan, melt the white chocolate melts under low/medium heat. Stir occasionally until melted and smooth. Pour into a shallow bowl for easier dipping.
Now, dip an Oreo ball into the melted chocolate and place back on the lined baking sheet. Immediately cover it with sprinkles.
The chocolate will harden rather quickly because the Oreo balls have been chilled so be sure to sprinkle right away or you may have to dip the balls again in the chocolate. Repeat that step until all of the truffles have been coated with chocolate and sprinkled.
(Optional – you could also drizzle some melted red chocolate melts on top of the truffles if you wanted to add more color)
