Does anyone else LOVE Oreos as much as I do? (I’m pretty sure that’s a no, but I just thought I’d ask!) Seriously. Don’t leave me alone with an opened bag of Oreos if you want some for yourself. There might not be any left by the time you get back!
One problem with Oreos, however, is that they aren’t quite fancy enough for holiday get-togethers. I mean, when everyone else shows up with homemade mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and a giant turkey or ham, you can’t just show up with a bag of Oreos, even if you manage to leave some for everyone else. It’s not that the taste isn’t good enough, just that they aren’t very “fancy.”
Well, today’s recipe changes all of that. These Chocolate Oreo Truffles have the same amazing crunch and flavor of store-bought Oreos, but they have the added fanciness that holiday get-togethers deserve.
Honestly, I used to be a little intimidated by truffle recipes. They seemed really fancy and difficult to make, so I would usually stick closer to cookie and cake recipes I was more familiar with. If you’re the same way, let me reassure you. This truffle recipe is actually pretty simple to make, and the taste is absolutely worth learning something new.
So whether you are looking for a holiday dessert recipe fancy enough to impress your in-laws, or you simply want to try something new, these Chocolate Oreo Truffles are a must-try!
