The caramel drizzle did stay a bit tacky, but it gives the truffles a bit more caramel flavor. Overall they do taste like caramel apples. They are on the sweet side, but I made the balls bite-sized so you don't get overwhelmed.

Keywords: no bake dessert snack caramel apple oreos cream cheese caramel apple candy melt caramel truffles American fall
Ingredients (26 mini truffles)
- 12 Caramel Apple Oreos
- 4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 package (10 oz.) Wilton's Candy Apple Candy Melts
- 2 oz. vanilla candy coating, melted
- 1/4 cup caramel/caramel topping
- chocolate sprinkles
- chopped pecans
- Brach's Caramel Candy Corn
InstructionsFor the truffles
Crush Oreo cookies in a food processor until they are a dirt like consistency.
In a medium bowl, mix the crushed Oreos and cream cheese until completely combined.
With a mini scoop, measure out 26 mounds and place them on a wax paper lined air-tight container.
Place the container in the freezer for at least 1 hour to set.For the coating
After the balls are set, melt candy coating in the microwave as per directions on package. I did half the bag at a time.
Remove Oreo balls from the freezer. Do a small batch at a time so they don't fall apart. If you need to, just place them back in the freezer for a few minutes.
Feel free to reshape any balls that are not to your liking by rolling them around in your hand. Just do it quickly not to warm up the dough too much.
Dip the Oreo balls into candy coating mixture until all covered. (I use a fork.) Once covered, remove and softly tap until excess candy melt falls off. Then place the balls on wax paper until the candy melt hardens.For the drizzle
Combine the melted candy coating and the caramel, mix well. Then place in a candy decorating bag or Ziplock bag with tip cut off and drizzle over the tops of the truffles.Optional toppings
If you are adding sprinkles, nuts, or Candy Corn, add them to the top of the truffles before the caramel drizzle sets. The caramel will not completely harden, but will become firmer.Notes
These truffles can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for 3-4 days.
