Unlike my chocolate truffles these Oreo truffles are a great treat to make with kids. They are very easy as long as care is taken with the melted chocolate there’s no reason why kids can’t get stuck in. Of course if you are an adult and want to join in that’s ok too!
Oreo peppermint truffles
Take 200 grams Oreos and finely pulse in a food processor. Mix 100 grams of full fat Philadelphia in a bowl with 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Stir in the Oreo crumbs and mix until well combine. Shape teaspoon sized lumps into balls and place on a lined baking sheet. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
Melt white chocolate chips or candy melts in a double boiler (tip if you find the candy melts don’t melt add some coconut oil). Smash up some peppermint candy canes and place in a bowl. Dip each truffle in the melted chocolate and sprinkle with some of the smashed candy canes.
