Candy Cane Oreo Truffles On Mini Cones

I can’t help myself.  I have to break out the candy canes.  I know, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but the candy canes and chocolate and peppermint goodies on store shelves are calling to me.

And thus I must do things like Candy Cane Oreo Truffle Cones.  I made some Oreo Truffle cones for Halloween and I have to say, I really like using the mini cones.   They aren’t as messy to dip as just truffles and they seem a fair amount easier to dip than pops on sticks.  And no bake, gotta love that.

I made these the way I always make my Oreo truffles

Oreo Truffle Recipe

For this version I used the Candy Cane Oreos (found at Target), Philadelphia Indulgence Chocolate Cream Cheese, crushed up candy canes, Wilton Candy Cane Melts, Joy Mini Cones (found at Walmart), Chocolate CandiQuik Coating and topped them with sprinkles, crushed candy canes and White Chocolate Peppermint M&M’s (found at Target).

I used 14 Oreos and about 3 1/2 to 4 tablespoons of the chocolate cream cheese.

First you make your Oreo truffle mixture.  I added about 2 tsp crushed candy canes, but you can leave them out.

Rolled them into balls.

Then popped them into the fridge to chill for a few minutes.  While doing that I set up my mini cones in my Kupcake Konz pan (love this pan!).   Next I melted my chocolate.   Then I dipped the bottom of each truffle into the chocolate coating and then sat it on a cone.   This step allows the truffles to stick to the cones when you are ready to dip the entire truffle into your chocolate.

Back into the fridge to chill for a few minutes.  Once the chocolate is completely set, then you can dip them into the chocolate coating.

After that chocolate sets up, I spooned a bit of regular chocolate coating on top of each and garnished with either sprinkles or crushed candy canes and topped with a White Chocolate Peppermint M&M.

Simple as that!

Chocolate and peppermint -  ah, I love!

      Erin, you can totally go the non candy cane route with these, just use regular Oreos and Melts and leave out the crushed candy canes. My love of mint seems to be tied to candy canes, because it’s really not there the rest of the year. ;)

    So cute! And thank you for offering up the non-minty option as well. My son loves mint but my daughter hasn’t acquired a taste for it yet, so having options is fantastic! Love this website!

    I am so jealous you have so many cool things to use. We don’t get those in NewZealand just plain oreo’s at this stage. We don’t even have those M&M’s! Anytime anyone wants to do a “lollie” swap with someone from NZ pick me! lol
    Love your blog and your creations – usually i just watch you from a distance but as you get closer to christmas you have so many yummy things i wish i could have a go at making.
    Thank so much for sharing

    Those are absolutely adorable! I haven’t seen the mini cones, but are they about the right size for a truffle? With truffles being such an indulgence, I wouldn’t want them to be too big:)

    I would love to try these, but is there a replacement for the philly indulgence? It’s not available in any ofmmy grocers here in quebec… :(:(:(

      Danielle, absolutely, just use regular cream cheese. I’m all about substituting with whatever you can have. It would change the flavor ever so slightly, but trust me they would still be completely delicious (and how I have always made my Oreo truffles in the past).

      Andrea, go for regular Oreos and add in a bit more of the crushed candy canes – once you run it all through a food processor, you will get the same result. Regular M&M’s will work just as well, and actually might be nice to offset the mint, in retrospect I kind of wished I had more balance between the mint and chocolate flavors versus all mint (and the regular M&M’s are slightly smaller and flatter which work better size wise). Aside from that I’d suggest contacting brands and your grocery store managers regarding the lack of availability, or this looks like a great resource for ordering online… http://www.candywarehouse.com/occasions/christmas-candy/
