Today is my group’s reveal day for the Secret Recipe Club. What is the SRC? Basically you are assigned a fellow participant’s blog by the organizer and then you pick a recipe of your choice from that blog and make your version of it. But it is a secret, you cannot reveal whom you picked and what you made until the established posting date and time. This month’s secret: Oreo Truffles.
I had a wonderful blog this month called Vanderbilt Wife, written by Jessie. She lives in Chattanooga (love saying that word) with her husband and 2 great kids. She has the perfect set-up: she stays at home taking care of the family – probably much better than she claims lol – but she is also a very active freelance write, editor, proofreader, and social media manager. Plus she has a lot of awesome recipes.
The only problem is that these last days in Montreal is has been really hot, like hot plus humidity. No way am I turning on an oven. I searched for the least amount of heat required recipes. Tempting ones were the BLT Bites, Banana Couscous and Sweet Beet and Heat Salad.
But of course the sweet tooth won out in the end and I chose the Oreo Truffles. Instead of a chocolate coating I thought I would try some truffles rolled in cocoa powder and others covered in butterscotch chips. I have never been good at coating stuff with chocolate and this was not exception. You are seeing the best ones. A good decision though was making a few balls with a fresh cherry in the center. Wish I made more of those. Great easy sweet treat.
- 1 pkg. Oreos
- 1 pkg. cream cheese 8 oz.
- 2 pkgs. chocolate or other flavored chip
- cherries optional
- Turn 36 whole Oreos into crumbs, in a food processor or by hand.
- Mix with the cream cheese until well incorporated.
- Form into 1-inch balls and freeze for 10 minutes.
- Separately, crush the cookie part of another 2 cookies for sprinkles.
- Melt the chocolate, then roll the Oreo balls around in the chocolate until they’re completely covered. Set on a baking sheet, sprinkle with Oreo crumbs and stick in the fridge or freezer for 1 hour.

Will have to give this a try.
YUM cherry in the middle will be a cute surprise (if you don’t tell anyone). I love the surprise in the middle of truffles. 😀
I think these are perfect, oreo truffles are a favorite of mine and with a cherry in the middle it sounds wonderful.
What a great recipe for this month’s #chocolateparty challenge.
I would love to eat all of them. They look fabulous especially with the little cherry surprise!
These look so good Everlyn! I love the cherry surprise in those delicious truffles!
Thanks for sharing and for joining our chocolate party. Hope you’ll join us again the the months to come!
How fun! I think the SRC is a fun event. 🙂 Thanks for sharing these yummy treats. I love oreos and love the surprise you put inside these truffles.
This looks truly irresistible!
And the cherry filling so moist and delicious.
Love the surprise center…YUM!
You just remind me to my childhood,

refrigerated and enjoyed it once come back home….
Who wants to have a hot oven on when it is so hot? I totally agree with you and you have found the perfect solution!
Wow Evelyne, these truffles look awesome, and yes I like the hidden cherry in it.
Hope you are having a lovely week 🙂
No-bake recipes like this are so great. I love your additions.
Yep, it is hard to keep truffles looking awesome in the heat. These are a decadent summer treat!
Evelyne these truffles look and sound so good. They have my favorites, Oreos and cherries. Yum!:)
These look incredibly delicious, Ev. I bet they’d be great for a picnic too, as long as you keep them somewhat chilled, and maybe stick with cocoa powder instead of chocolate on the outside…but I do love that idea of the butterscotch coating!
Wow! Those look fantastic,Evelyne! What a delicious treat!
Yum!! These look like such a treat with the cherry in the middle. I can’t imagine how good the would taste!! Clever you qualifying for 2 challenges with the one dish 🙂
Oreos in truffle forms takes my favorite cookie beyond fabulous! Bravo!
The cherry inside would be my fav too! 🙂
WOw, those look divine!
I love that you added a cherry to these Oreo truffles…pure genius! You are welcome to link these up to this month’s Chocolate Party…the ingredients are chocolate and cherries for the month of June. Just check out my post today to see the details 🙂
Yum! These look ah-some!! Can’t wait to try…My daughter is gonna love it! Bookmarking it right away.
Though I’m not a big Oreo fan, I might make an exception for these. I love the cherry!
Cherry is a MUST! These look divine!
Adding cherries is always a good move in my book. Those look awesome!
Yum! These look amazing – a great SRC pick! 🙂
Mmm I love the cross section photo of inside the truffle-it looks so luscious! 😀
I think I’d eat these sans the cherries. Otherwise they look great.
Putting a cherry in the middle is pure genius! I’d be thrilled to bite into such a sweet surprise.
