Birthday Cake Oreo Truffles
Simple three ingredient, no bake, truffles made with Birthday cake stuffed Oreos and dipped in Birthday cake flavored candy melts.
Happy Birthday!! Oh wait? What’s that? It’s not your birthday? Weeeellll…it’s not mine either! It’s not even anyone’s Birthday that I know. The exciting news: You don’t need to have a birthday to celebrate to make these truffles!!
Every day should be celebrated in some way. Today I accomplished two loads of laundry. That is enough reason for me to have a celebration!
Have you ever gotten behind on laundry? In our house there’s me, my husband, three kids, two dogs, and the never-ending laundry pile. Sometimes it feels like it’s part of the family, that maybe I should introduce it to guests when they come over. “Hello, this is my oldest Taylor, this is Kaylie, little Lily, and that there..that’s our laundry.”
Ever get that feeling that you will be swallowed alive by the laundry pile? If I go missing just send out the search party into the laundry. If only I had a laundry room. *Sigh* Then I could at least hide it, maybe forget about it for a moment. I have a closet in the hallway, so the laundry spills out all over the floor. Causing us all to do acrobatics to make it from one end of the hallway to the next.
I realized this week that I tend to sort the laundry into whites, towels, and a load of pinks. That’s right…pinks. I have an entire load of pink laundry. Why do you ask? Well..I have three girls. My poor husband. At least one of the dogs is a boy though.
Enough about my laundry issues. That’s not really why you came here is it? Of course not!
You were lured here with promises of Birthday cake Oreo truffles. And I do not want to disappoint you!
Trust me when I tell you this will not disappoint! Even if it’s not your birthday. Remember everything is better with SPRINKLES! Sprinkles can turn the worst, laundry filled, day into a wonderful day! They are that magical.
The recipe for these Oreo truffles were adapted from a recipe by Kraft and can be found here. Simple enough, three ingredients! A package of Oreos, a package of cream cheese, and some Wilton Candy Melts in their Limited Edition Birthday Cake flavor. I will be sad when these go away. But you could still make them with regular white chocolate and they would still be yummy.
And birthday-ish as long as you use the magical sprinkles.
If you’re new to Wilton’s candy melts you are in for a real treat!! They’re super easy to use, you just melt them in the microwave, instructions are on the package, then you just dip the truffles in them. They make these in a variety of colors, and some of them have special flavors, like this one is birthday cake.
Just opening the package and I was overcome with the smell of birthday cake. Is there a better smell?!?
If you have a food processor just toss in all the Oreos to be processed until they are just crumbs.
Soften the cream cheese in the microwave and then using a mixer, mix together the cream cheese and Oreo crumbs. This will give you a sticky paste almost. Roll that into small balls with your hands. Freeze them for about thirty minutes and then you can dip them in the candy melts.
