I have such a fun recipe idea for you today. Have you ever made Oreo Truffles? If you haven’t, you are in for a treat. I have loved the Oreo Truffles recipe for many (many) years. Truth be told I prefer Oreo Truffles to cake pops. Oreo Truffles are no bake, and take only a handful of ingredients. And they are crazy delicious. I’ve made Oreo Truffles cake pops, Oreo Truffles cupcake pops, no stick at all Oreo Truffles, Oreo Truffles Cones and today I’m sharing with you some Oreo Truffles Trees and Santa Hats for Christmas. They *might* be my favorite Oreo Truffles yet!
I am in *love* with these little Oreo Truffles Trees! And the Santa Hats are super cute as well!
These are so fun and really not as hard to make as you might think. Oreo Truffles are made of basically four things – Oreos, cream cheese, chocolate coating and sprinkles or decorations. That’s it. I did have a little tool that helped me shape these, my My Little Cupcake Cone Shaped Cake Pop Mold (click the link or the photo to be taken to the mold).
I love the My Little Cupcake Molds and have used them many times here on the blog. If you make cake pops or truffles more than a few times a year, they are well worth a few dollars. But you can make these without a mold, you just want to shape your truffles into cones.
To create these I made my truffle mixture, then placed it in the fridge to chill for about 20 minutes. Next I shaped my truffle mixture into little cones, then back into the fridge for another 20 minutes. After that I pulled my chilled truffle cones out, one at a time, and dipped the base into some green candy coating (such as Merckens or Wiltons) and placed the truffle onto an Oreo, and returned it to the fridge. This part allows the truffle to “bond” with the Oreo if you will. You could probably skip this part and just dunk your whole tree into the candy coating and then place it on your Oreo, but truth be told I hate having candy coating and melted chocolate on my hands, so this is a slightly neater option. After allowing these to chill until the candy coating was hardened, I pulled them out one at a time, dipped or spooned on my candy coating, added some sprinkles and placed them on a baking sheet.
I topped each with a little candy star. That’s it! SO cute. For the Santa hats, I used white chocolate for the base, and made sure to get some up along the sides of the cone shape, an not just on the bottom, as I wanted to create the white area for my hats. Then I dipped them into some red coating, added some red sugar crystal sprinkles, and topped with a Celebration Pearl Sixlet.
To store I keep mine loosely covered and in the fridge, as they do contain cream cheese.
You can go with a clear sugar crystal sprinkle for a more simple look if you like. You can really decorate these any way you want, have fun with it! I think these would be darling in white, and pink!
I love these!
So much fun. You can always make these as pops if you want, but I really like the idea of putting these on Oreos.
