Very Berry Cookie Truffles Recipe

Very Berry Cookie Truffles recipe made with Oreo cookies from www.glimmercreations.com

I'm all about easy cooking. Don't get me wrong, there are moments when I like to take my time baking a special homemade treat, but for the most part I like to make things that don't take a lot of time. No bake treats are even better!

These Very Berry Cookie Truffles definitely fit this description.  They are quick and easy, and only require 3 ingredients and a few kitchen tools.

With a sweet and crunchy candy coating, and a soft, chewy chocolate berry flavored filling, they make a pretty presentation and are the perfect bite sized treat for any occasion. Just imagine them on a dessert table at a baby or wedding shower.

I always worry a little bit when I try out a new recipe, but luckily, in my house, my family members are my taste testers and are usually honest.  These were a huge hit with them. I took the rest of the candies to my office and everyone loved them there too!  So I know they are good.

Here is everything that you need to know to make these yummy truffles, including step by step photos and the complete recipe.

I'll be the first to admit that my candy dipping skills are not the best. You can see that I had to do a little repair work on the tops because the coating didn't fill in the hole that the skewer I used to hold the balls made. Oh well, it just adds a little interest to the truffles.

Very Berry Cookie Truffles Recipe
Makes about 38 truffles

Ingredients
  • 1- 15.25 oz. package Oreo Berry Creme or Berry Burst cookies
  • 1- 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 - 12 oz. packages meltable candy coating wafers, vanilla flavored
  • Red food coloring, optional
Directions
  1. In a food processor or blender, combine the cookies and the cream cheese until well mixed.  It should resemble a really thick paste.
  2. Refrigerate the mixture for about half an hour, or until it is firm enough to form balls.
  3. Form 1 inch balls and place them on a wax paper lined baking tray.
  4. Set tray in freezer for about half an hour.
  5. Melt vanilla candy coating as per instructions on the package.  
  6. If desired, set aside about 1/4 cup of the melted coating and put some red food coloring in it until you get the color you desire.  This is for the pink drizzle.
  7. Using a candy dipping tool or another type of tool, like a fork or a shish kebab skewer, dip each ball in the melted candy coating and place it on the wax paper lined tray to harden.  If you have a cooling rack, that works too.  
  8. If you want to add the pretty pink drizzle, this is when to do that.  Just place the colored melted candy coating into a sandwich bag and snip off a tiny piece of one of the corners.  Do a quick test on something to make sure the hole is the thickness you want, and start drizzling on the truffles, as much or as little as you like.
  9. Set trays in the refrigerator until coating is hard and then place them in an airtight container. These truffles should be kept refrigerated.
