I don't why the limited edition Oreos come in smaller packages than the regular Oreo cookies. You lose about 10 cookies, so not fair. I bought these at Target by the way.
Cotton Candy Oreo Truffles
Prep Time: 1.5h w/freezer time
Keywords: no bake freeze snack dessert Cotton Candy Oreos cream cheese candy melt candy coating truffles American spring summer
Ingredients (30 truffles)
- 15 Cotton Candy flavored Oreo cookies
- 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1 package (16 oz.) Candiquik candy coating (vanilla/white)
- 1 packet Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Cotton Candy flavor mix
InstructionsFor the truffles
Crush the 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 30 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. (I left mine overnight.)For the coating
After the balls are set, melt candy coating in the microwave as per directions on package.
Pour in the packet of flavor mix and stir until completely dissolved and combined.
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.
Keep truffles refrigerated until ready to serve.Optional Toppings
If you are adding sprinkles, add them before the candy coating hardens.Notes
If you are doing all the truffles with the cotton candy flavor, then use 1 packet of Frosting Creations for all 16 oz. of the candy coating. If you want to do half vanilla and half cotton candy, split the candy coating into two containers before melting and use only half (about 3/4 teaspoon) of the flavor mix powder.
It is best to have the dough as frozen as possible when dipping, so that it doesn't come apart.
If the bottoms of the truffles don't get fully covered with candy melt, you can always dip them again.
These truffles can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for 3-4 days.
