Oreo Gingerbread Cookie Truffles


I was almost giddy when I saw a Walmart ad in the paper for Oreo gingerbread cookies:)   I ran to the store the next day, but couldn't find them! I spotted a clerk and he couldn't find them either, but we walked around a bit, and lo and behold, there it stood in front of us...a whole display island of Gingerbread (and other holiday) Oreos!  Woo hoo!
Oreo cookie truffles are nothing new (though I've never made them) but gingerbread Oreos, now that's another story.
If you haven't tried them, you really need to track some down; they're a new taste treat:)

Now on to the truffles...they're as easy as one, two, three.

Oreo Gingerbread Cookie Truffles
1 package Oreo Gingerbread Cookies (15.25 ounces)
3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
6 ounces vanilla bark

Put the cookies into a food processor and process into fine crumbs. Add the cream cheese until fully incorporated and  the cookies hold together.  Scoop the dough into 1-inch balls and place on baking sheet. Place in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.  Melt the vanilla bark according to package directions.  Use a fork to dip each ball in the melted bark and let the excess drip off.  Set on baking sheet. Add a decorative sprinkle(s) and some spices (or cookie crumbs) to the top of each.  Let dry.  Delicious!

Makes about 2 dozen truffles.

  2. Your little gingerbread man dish is so cute! I doubt we'll get gingerbread oreos over in the UK but they sound amazing and so do your truffles.

  6. Sue, I saw those in Wal-Mart and made a mental note to pick some up. One of my daughters loves oreos. They turned out so cute, and I bet they are delicious :). Joni

  10. We were just at the grocery store and were talking about gingerbread cookies and I thought I needed to try some gingerbread cookie pops. Now I am going to have it even easier and can get the Oreos (If I can find them). They are so beautiful too!
    I noticed the new header too! really cute.

  11. The States has so many different treats that what we have here or at least it takes a lot longer for stores to start selling them.
    Your truffles look wonderful. Love how you dipped and decorated them. I shall have to be patient to try them :)

  20. Oreo Truffles are so yummy and so hard to find! I found another blogger recipe to make with them but considered making truffles. I hope to get my hands on another bag!!! I did make truffles with the Neopolatin Oroes. They have a great strawberry flavor!
