Golden Oreo Truffles

As I mentioned before, I’m taking a little vacation from blogging – don’t worry, I’ll be back! – but in the meantime, some of my favorite bloggers are stepping in to take the reins while I’m away. Today Lindsey from Gingerbread Bagels is here, one of the sweetest bloggers I know…and if you love baking and all things sugar, her blog is definitely one you want to be reading – I for one am constantly bookmarking her delicious recipes! Thank you Lindsey for guest posting today!

Hi there! I’m Lindsey from Gingerbread Bagels and a self proclaimed butter/sugar lover and decadent dessert addict. When Tracy asked me to guest post for her, I jumped at the chance since I adore her and her blog to pieces. Honestly, Tracy is one of the sweetest, most sincere and giving bloggers I have ever met. Well sort of met. :) I’m so honored to be guest posting on Sugarcrafter today and can’t wait to share this sugar overload with you.

I’m currently trying to embrace this love-filled/pink is everywhere/hearts galore holiday known as Valentine’s Day. But as I walk down the aisle with the Sweethearts, cherry cordials, and Justin Bieber Valentine’s Day cards (help me), the realization came to me even more….I am alone. Excuse me, but where is my boyfriend Anthony Kiedis? Oh yeah he’s currently hanging out in LA with that wacky mustache and hideous hairdo. Since he’s too busy grooming that horrible facial hair, I decided to embrace the oh my where is my hot boyfriend holiday with a dessert (of course). And not just any love filled dessert will do for Tracy’s blog because she’s seriously amazing. Hello, she made me gingerbread bagels. But I wanted a Valentine’s Day dessert that looked like the entire Valentine’s section at the craft store exploded.

  • 1 package Golden Oreos (use all but 9 Oreos)
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package candy melts (I used pink, but you can use whatever color you like)
  • Sprinkles (optional)

For the Golden Oreo truffles, you need a box of this deliciousness. Oh how I love you, Oreos.

Throw all but 9 Oreos into the food processor…yeah we’re not using 9 Oreos. You won’t need them, so just eat them. Grind the rest up into fine crumbs.

And add in 8 ounces of softened cream cheese. Don’t you dare use reduced fat cream cheese. Come on now, we’re making Oreo truffles. Excuse me, Golden Oreo truffles.

Tasty Golden Oreo mixture. Mmmm.

Line a baking sheet (okay, a couple of baking sheets) with parchment paper. Using a tablespoon, scoop the Oreo mixture and then roll each one into a ball. Place the truffles on the parchment paper, then place the truffles in the freezer for 30 minutes.

Melt a package of candy melts in the microwave. Dip each truffle into the candy melts and coat it completely.

Take the truffles out with a stick, fork, chopstick (that’s what I use most of the time). Basically, use whatever works for you.

Place the coated Oreo truffles on the parchment paper.

If you’re feeling festive or if your candy dipping skills need some help, put sprinkles on top.

Enjoy!

    I saw Birthday Cake oreos at the store yesterday! Since my boyfriend’s birthday is this week I might tweak your recipe to make birthday truffles!

    YUMMY! We haven’t tried these oreos yet, but my kids like the regular ones and love the truffles. Tracy do you know if these are peanut allergy safe?

    Katie – Golden Oreos contain wheat and soy, but no peanuts or nuts. Enjoy! :-)

    What a shame we don’t have golden oreos in Spain, maybe I’ll try with chocolate ones!

    Seriously, what is up with Anthony Kiedis’ fu manchu mustache thing? Such a waste of a gorgeous face.

    I tried making truffles the other day and for some reason it was a huge flop! It didn’t set at all! This looks so cute and fancy :)

    Aww, these are adorable! I’ve never had a golden oreo, just the regular ones, but the color looks so amazing, especially contrasted with the pink candy coating :) <3

    Great post Lindsay! Being alone at least means you don’t have to share your treats if you don’t want to :)
