I learned this yummy recipe from my SIL and thought I would make some Egg shaped oreo truffles for the kids teachers for their Easter Gifts. They are sooo good, it is very difficult to refrain from eating any while you are making them.
What you need:
1 Package of Oreo Cookies
1 8 oz package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
Bamboo Skewers or other kind of stick with a pointy end.
1 bag of Candy Melts in your choice of color
What to do:
With a blender (I used my Kitchenaid), dump all the oreos and package of cream cheese into the bowl and beat, mix and blend until somewhat smooth.
Using a cookie scoop or spoon, scoop out balls of oreo mix onto wax paper lined pan. Be sure the pan you select will fit nicely into your freezer. Put the pan into the freezer for 2 hours.
Shape the frozen balls into egg shapes using a plastic bag. I used a gallon size ziplock bag so I could put my hand into the bag and form the egg shape without making a huge sticky mess.
Melt the Candy Melts following the directions on the package and put a stick in the bottom of the egg oreo and dip until completely covered.
Let the candy melts dry (hold them in the freezer for a few minutes) before laying them back down on the wax paper. Remove the stick. You can then re-dip the bottom to cover the hole.
You can "decorate" your eggs with different colored candy melts if you wish.
Cut an egg carton in half or leave hole for a larger gift. Using the small cupcake liners, line the inside of each of the egg holders.
Place your candy covered oreo truffles into the egg liners and tie the egg package with a bow.
Enjoy and have a wonderful Easter!!!
