Do truffles have to be stored in the fridge?

Since there is cream cheese in this recipe, they’ll need to be kept nice and chilled in the fridge while you’re waiting to eat them.

What is the best way to crush the Oreos to make homemade truffles?

Homemade Oreo truffles are a delicious and easy treat to make. The key to making the perfect truffle is first to crush the Oreos into fine crumbs.

There are a few different ways to do this, but the best method is to place the cookies in a food processor and pulse them until they are finely ground.

Alternatively, you can place the cookies in a zip-top bag and use a rolling pin to crush them. Once the cookies are crushed, the rest of the recipe is fairly simple and only requires a few ingredients.

These truffles are sure to be a hit with family and friends!

What type of cream cheese should I use for truffles?

When it comes to making truffles, the type of cream cheese you use can have a big impact on the final flavor and texture of your confections.

For a rich and indulgent treat, try using a full-fat cream cheese. This will give your truffles a creamy consistency and rich flavor.

If you’re looking for something lighter, opt for a low-fat cream cheese. This will result in truffles that are slightly less creamy but just as flavorful.

No matter which type of cream cheese you choose, be sure to let it soften to room temperature before using it in your recipe to ensure smooth and evenly mixed truffles.

Do I have to coat truffles in chocolate?

You don’t have to if you don’t want to! You could always roll the truffles in crushed Oreos for a fun, unique twist!

How do I store cream cheese Oreos truffles?

Oreo truffles are a delicious and easy-to-make treat. However, they can be tricky to store. Cream cheese is a perishable item, so it’s important to keep the truffles refrigerated.

However, if they are stored for too long in the fridge, the cream cheese can begin to sour.

For best results, eat the truffles within a week of making them. If you need to store them for longer, you can place them in the freezer.

However, be sure to wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil to prevent freezer burn.

Oreo truffles are best enjoyed fresh, but with proper storage, they can still be delicious.

Can I make these truffles with other types of cookies?

Absolutely you can! I love using Oreos, but you could easily crumble chocolate chip cookies or any other type of cookie.

Change it up and see all the fun flavors and ideas that you can make! (and then make sure to come back and tell me what combination you did so that I can try it, too!)
