FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What kind of Oreo cookies are best?

We use regular Oreos for this recipe but you can absolutely use any flavor that you like. Some flavors that would be fun would be lemon, red velvet, mint, golden Oreos, etc.

Where do I find candy melts?

We use Wilton brand candy melts for this recipe. You can usually find these at Walmart down the cake decorating aisle or in most craft stores nationwide.

How long should I chill these before decorating?

You will want to freeze for at least 30 minutes. This helps when dipping into the candy melts so it keeps the egg shape in tact.

Do I have to use a food processor to crush my Oreos?

No. It just makes it fast and easy. if you do not own one you can use a blender or the just do it the old-fashioned way by putting the cookies in a plastic bag and bag with a rolling pin until fully crushed.

What is almond bark?

Almond bark is just a candy coating. I have no idea why they call it that. There are usually two flavors, vanilla and chocolate. We are using the vanilla for this recipe.

Do I have to use almond bark?

No. You can just purchase some white candy melts instead. I like the vanilla flavor from the almond bark but white candy melts work just fine!

How do I store leftovers?

These will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks. They can also be frozen. Place the truffles in a freezer-safe bag or container and they will keep for up to 4 months. To defrost, remove to the refrigerator overnight.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)

  • cream cheese 
  • oreo cookies
  • vanilla almond bark
  • colored candy melts (I used the Wilton bright pink, blue and yellow candy melts – they can be found at most Walmarts and craft supply stores)
  • an assortment of brightly colored sprinkles
Ingredients needed: cream cheese, Oreo cookies, vanilla almond bark, colored candy melts and brightly colored sprinkles.

HOW TO MAKE EASTER EGG OREO TRUFFLES:

In a food processor finely crush the Oreo cookies. Place the cookie crumbs and cream cheese in a large mixing bowl.

Crushed up Oreos with cream cheese in large measuring cup.

Blend together with a hand mixer until combined (it should look like a thick paste.)

Cream cheese mixed into Oreo crumbs.

Using a 1 ½ tablespoon cookie scoop, form the cookie mixture into balls and then gently shape into an egg shape. Place eggs on a parchment paper lined sheet pan and put into the freezer for 30 minutes.

Oreos mixture portioned and shaped into eggs.

When ready, melt the almond bark and candy melts in separate microwave safe bowls in 30 second increments until melted and smooth. I usually work with one bowl and one color at a time so they stay melted as I work quickly. Using 2 forks dip each egg in the chocolate and gently shake off any excess.

Almond bark and candy melts melted in separate bowls.

Place the egg on parchment paper and immediately sprinkle with colorful sprinkles. (Note: you can also take some of the melted candy melts and drizzle over the finished eggs as well).
