Ok guys. This is such an easy recipe, even if you don’t have a baking bone in your body, you can definitely make this. In fact, this is a potluck type of dessert. You can bring it to any get together and it’ll be the biggest hit and no one will know you had to do the least work.
Make this for your kids, your friends, or people you want to be your friends, because after they try this, they’ll keep coming back for more!
Here is the super simple recipe;
1 package of cool whip (thawed) or canned whip cream.
1 package JELLO Instant Vanilla Pudding.
1 box of Nilla Wafers
6 fresh strawberries, cleaned and thinly sliced.
In a dish, preferably tall and clear for esthetics, layer whole Nilla Wafers, Cool Whip, fresh strawberries, vanilla pudding, crushed nilla wafers, then repeat until it fills the entire dish leaving the last top layer for cool whip, fresh strawberries, and a dusting of crushed Nilla Wafers.
Chill 2 hours – overnight until the wafers turn soft. It’ll taste like a fall apart strawberry shortcake.
All you need to make these mouthwatering Oreo Truffles is 1, 8 oz package of softened cream cheese
And 1 package of original Oreos.
I used my stand mixer this time, but have done it in the past by hand. The easiest way to do it by hand is to crush the Oreos in a ziplock back (I use a hammer hehe) before adding to the cream cheese.
Add both ingredients and mix on low speed until smooth
(If you wanted to make Oreo Icing, you can add less cookies to cream cheese ratio and you’ll get a yummy oreo cream cheese icing).
The fun part is next! Take out even spoonfuls of the mixture, and roll into balls using your CLEAN hands. Try using a spoon or something that can allow you to have even sized balls. Place on parchment paper lined tray and refrigerate for 30 minutes uncovered.
Removed from refrigerator and decorate with chocolate! I used the yellow colored white melting chocolate and non parel sprinkles for these, but my absolute favorite is milk chocolate covered Oreo Truffles.
If you wanted, you can even add a stick (dip the stick into the chocolate then into the ball and cool before dipping fully into the rest of the chocolate). Refrigerate until chocolate hardens. The Oreo Truffles should be kept cool until consumed.
TIP: Make the balls much smaller so that they’re not too heavy on the stick.
The last step; ENJOY!
* This recipe makes about 25 Cake Pop sized Oreo Truffles. You can half the recipe and make a smaller batch or make the truffles smaller.
