Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 3-5 mins

Yield: 12-24 truffles

Festive Oreo peanut butter candy cane truffles. Flavoured with peppermint extract and smothered in rich dark chocolate. Magically sprinkled with crushed candy canes.

Ingredients:

  • 150g (½ cup + 2tbsp) cream cheese
  • 1 pack (approx. 150g/6oz) Oreo cookies
  • 1-1½ cups dark chocolate, chopped or chocolate chips
  • ½-1 tsp peppermint extract
  • (optional) 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 candy canes, crushed

Directions:

  1. Blend the cream cheese with the Oreo cookies in a food processor until thoroughly mixed
  2. Add the peanut butter (if using) and the peppermint extract to taste and mix thoroughly. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 2 hours until the cookies absorb the cream cheese, peanut butter and peppermint extract and to harden up.
  3. Scoop balls no larger than 1 tbsp in width and roll placing on a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Place in the freezer for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each one, until the chocolate has melted and is smooth.
  5. Dip the cookie balls into the melted chocolate covering the entire cookie ball, allow excess chocolate to drip before placing on parchment paper.
  6. Immediately sprinkle the crushed candy canes into each truffle immediately after dipping to adhere.
  7. Allow to set and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Notes:

The yield purely depends on size.

    PS: I have PEPPERMINT Oreos. Would you use that same recipe with the peppermint cookies?

    Hi, my name is Jess and I’m an Oreo addict.
    :D And have been for years. I can’t believe you haven’t always had them in the UK. What did you do before that?!? Though I’m not a fan of pb, I would love to try these as an oreo peppermint truffle :D Though then I would never beat my addiction!

    Oh my word! If you just threw in coffee to that recipe, you would all of my favorite flavors wrapped up in one delicious bite! While we lived in the UK, I used to have my Mom send care packages with Oreos in them. :) Thanks for the recipe! Found you through Bloggy Moms.
