Thank you God of Amazing Things You Would Never Have Known Existed If It Weren't For the Internet for blessing me with this discovery. Three ingredients, no time at all, ridiculously delicious result. Try. It. Now!
Oreo Chunk Cheese Truffles*makes about 18 pcs
Crush 1 tube Oreos (154g/14 cookies) into rough crumbs like above,
by pounding in a large bowl with the bottom of a pint glass.
Most recipes I've found use a food processor, but I find manual crushing much better for achieving those gorgeous large chunks that are so delicious to bite into.
Set aside 1 tbsp of crumbs for sprinkling later. Add roughly 2 tbsp full-fat soft cheese (aka cream cheese outside the UK) to the rest of the crumbs. Stir/pound until well-combined and a pliable dark dough is formed.
Roll into little balls and refrigerate/freeze briefly (just to harden for easy dipping).
You can also freeze them to be used another day.
Alternatively, succumb to temptation and eat some right here right now.
You'll end up with less truffles that way, but ah well.
Melt about 200g chocolate of your choice (our personal favourite is white) by microwaving on full heat for 20 second intervals, repeating and stirring in between each interval until melted. Be careful not to blitz for too long, otherwise your chocolate will burn.
Using two small teaspoons, drop each ball into the glossy chocolate and roll them around if necessary to fully coat. Lift it out with the two spoons, letting excess chocolate drip off, and place on a baking sheet lined with foil or baking paper. Use the spoons to make a pretty swirl or patch up exposed bits if necessary. Sprinkle with a touch of Oreo crumb and let cool.
Bite in and savour the goodness.
