Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan, bring the heavy cream and milk to a light simmer over medium-high heat.
  • Remove from heat and add the chocolate chips, do not stir and let them set for 5 minutes, then whisk together until combined.
  • Whisk in the cocoa powder, Oreo crumbs, and salt until incorporated.
  • Pour the mixture into a heat safe bowl and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 6 hours.
  • Use a small or medium cookie scoop to scoop out the truffle mixture and roll them between your palms to form a round ball.
  • Place the balls on a wax paper lined baking sheet and place them in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  • Melt the melting wafers in a deep cup or bowl and use a dipping tool or fork to dip the truffles in the chocolate then place them on a clean sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet and allow to cool until set.
  • Store balls in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months.

Notes

  • These truffles are soft which is why they need to be chilled for so long to set up.
  • This recipe was also tested with bittersweet chocolate chips, I preferred the semi-sweet, but both were very good.
  • I would run the Oreos through the food processor for best results.
  • Regular Oreos were used in this recipe, I do not recommend using double stuf because it could throw off the ratio.
  • You can easily make these peppermint truffles by adding ¼ to ½ teaspoon of peppermint extract.
