Raising Memories: Oreo Cheesecake Apple Truffles

Oreo Cheesecake Apple Truffles

For my sister's School Themed bridal shower, I made some oreo cheesecake truffles, dressed up to look like apples. Aren't they cute?


My mom & I worked together on these with a recipe from a friend of ours that is so simple & so delicious! Want to try them? I thought so! ;)

Here's what you'll need:

44 oreo cookies with creme inside (you could use the white oreos or the regular ones)
8 oz of Cream cheese (one block) room temperature
1 1/2 pkg of milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (instead of chocolate chips, we used red melting chocolate)

Here's what you do:

1. Grind up oreos. Save 1/2 cup to sprinkle on the tops later.
2. Mix cream cheese and oreos. Form 1 inch balls. Refrigerate for at least an hour. (minimizes crumbs)
3. Melt chocolate and dip balls.
4. Sprinkle crumbs or decorate with white melted chocolate or whatever else you want!


To make ours look like apples, here's what we did:


We used a skewer stick to poke a hole in the balls:


We dipped pretzel sticks into the holes, to be the stem. The stem doubled as a dipping stick:


Dip...


Then we put them on waxed paper to dry (and stuck a green jelly belly on there for a leaf, before the chocolate started to dry)


They turned out so cute & delicious- I definitely recommend them!
