Chocolate Truffles for your Valentine!

Can you believe that Valentine's Day is nearly here?  Oh my...where is the time going?  If you are celebrating February 14th, this is a recipe that is guaranteed to melt your Valentine's heart!

These scrumptious little bites of chocolate are so easy to make and soooo good!  This time I decorated the half of the tops with crushed oreo cookies and the other half I did with pink's seriously yummy! 
I originally got the recipe from Kraftcanada...but there are lots of versions on the internet!  This is my updated version from my recipe files and it makes about 4 dozen:

Easy Oreo Truffles
1- large bag of chocolate Oreo cookies
1- 8 oz package of Cream Cheese
Chocolate wafers (Milk and white chocolate)

Crush the cookies in your food processor until they are fine crumbs. (reserving a couple of tablespoons for the topping)

Add block of cream cheese, to cookie crumbs and pulse until it's well blended.  At this point I usually put it into the fridge for 30 minutes or so...just so it's chilled.

Roll the mixture into 1" balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet, place back in fridge until chilled again.

Melt chocolate wafers in a microwave bowl, drop truffle into chocolate and make sure it's well covered.  Remove the truffle from chocolate with 2 forks and place on wax paper....and sprinkle with chocolate crumbs or pink salt.  Then keep in the fridge until you are ready to serve...that's it....sooo yummy!

To make the salt, I used coarse the kind I use for homemade pretzels.  Put some salt in a baggie and add a few drops of red food colouring.  Sprinkle on chocolate covered truffles!

You can also melt chocolate in a baggie and pierce on end of the baggie with a toothpick and drizzle white chocolate on dark truffles or dark chocolate on white truffles.

I bet you can't eat just one!!  Enjoy!!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your time with me!


  1. If they taste half as good as they look then I am in trouble. I love chocolate and even love trying new recipes and making them my own. Thanks for Sharing.

  2. Thank you!! I have been looking for this recipe. About 13 months ago, when I first moved to Texas I was at a Walmart standing in line at the checkout. The lady in front of me was purchasing these items and out of curiosity I asked what was she going to make. She quickly gave me the recipe and I quickly forgot it because I didn't write it down. So Thank You for sharing. So what wonderful project are you going to package this yummy gastronomical delight in.

  3. This sounds amazing! Will be trying this soon.
