Fall Baking: 3 easy truffle recipes (Oreo, Peanut Butter & Cookie Dough)



There is no baking like fall baking! I make these three truffle recipes every year to kick off the fall season. Take your pick from Oreo truffles, peanut butter truffle and cookie dough truffles. They are easy enough to make, so try all three!

They are all a perfect addition to a Holiday cookie platter and make fantastic gifts from the kitchen. Make alone or with family and friends...just be sure to give them a try.


White Chocolate Oreo Truffles

  • 1 package Double Stuff Oreo cookies
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 12 ounces white chocolate disks, melted
Process the Oreo cookies in a food processor or blender, until crumbs are formed.
Mix Oreo crumbs with the cream cheese until combined. Mix with mixer or by hand with a wooden spoon.
Roll into 1 inch balls.
Place balls onto wax paper lined cookie sheets.
Freeze for 20 to 30 minutes.
Melt white chocolate melts in a double broiler on the stove.
To make one, fill a pot with water and place a glass bowl over the pot. This will allow the steam to melt the chocolate without burning it.
Dip balls in chocolate.
Return to lined cookie sheets.
Refrigerate until firm.
Store air tight in refrigerator.


Tip: Use any flavor Oreo you like and interchange milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate disks.

  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Put in refrigerator as you make the coating.

Coating

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Filling
  • 2 1/2 cups graham crumbs
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips
