Golden Birthday Cake Oreo Truffles

Well, I finally made some Oreo truffles!  I chose Golden Birthday Cake Oreos.  I actually prefer the golden version over the original and chose the birthday cake variety because these were for a birthday celebration (small though it was) for our black lab, Riley.
Riley didn't actually get to have one of these, but she was gifted with some dog-safe treats all her own.  She actually did a little, doggie "happy dance" when she was given two dog bones at the same time by our grandsons:)
Don't tell Riley, but I actually used her birthday as an excuse to make these cookie truffles, and I'm glad I did!  They were very easy to make.  I changed the recipe up a bit from the other Oreo truffles that I came across by using some vanilla frosting (in keeping with the birthday cake theme) as a mix-in, instead of cream cheese.  I also used birthday cake flavored candy melt for the outer shell. They were for a birthday, after all.
Do you see the little specks of color sprinkled in the creme filling? The perfect start to a  special treat.  The truffles come together quickly with the store-bought sandwich cookies.
Birthday Cake Oreo cookies + Birthday Cake candy melts + vanilla frosting + a few sprinkles thrown in =
a fun and tasty birthday dessert.  Of course, we also had "Birthday Party" ice cream:)  Birthday sweets overload you say...Never!
Here's the birthday pup with her special cupcake, made just for dogs, from our friend. (I did remember to take off the cupcake liner, though I'm sure she would have gladly eaten it!)
Look at her gray whiskers...at nine, she's getting old, and I know how she feels, haha!

Our dog is eight days younger than our oldest grandchild, and we picked a lab because they have such a great, long-standing reputation for being wonderful with children.  In Riley's case it couldn't be more true.

  10. I haven't seen the Birthday Cake Oreos, but just tried the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ones - yum! I made these with Circus Animal Cookies - super good. I agree, the dark Oreo just isn't my favorite for these and I like frosting instead of cream cheese- then I don't have to worry about refrigeration.
    I love your birthday cake candy melts! I haven't seen those either. March is big birthday month for us here so these would be fun to try.
