Okay, so before we talk about these fabulous and omg-delicious Oreo Truffles that have been coated with peanut butter white chocolate, can I bore you with something else?

{In my mind, you all just nodded and said, of course! So onward I go.}

Last Friday was a whirlwind day for me. First, my Peanut Butter Football Dip was featured in Woman’s World Magazine, a totally surreal experience. (Thanks Woman’s World!)

Then, a mere 4 hours after I got my magazine, I was informed that my dip had been made on a news program as part of a Super Bowl special. I googled and found the video. The recipe was on the TV News site, no link back to me. So I called the news station and, long story short, ended up getting told that the recipe was found on Pinterest, so they weren’t going to do anything about it, and then they hung up on me.

So, can we talk about Pinterest for a second? (I’m interrupting my interruption of my own post!) Most of you reading probably know that Pinterest is a pinboard full of of pretty pictures like the ones on this post. Maybe you even pinned this awesome truffle recipe. (Thanks!) But I guess some people still think that Pinterest runs a warehouse full of people frantically turning out recipes, fashions, craft, and cards left and right and posting them on their website. Newsflash: Pinterest does not create things. Bloggers and websites and brands and people do, and then they pin them on Pinterest.

Anyway, I was upset, as you can imagine. I went to my personal Facebook and gave a little rant. And oh man. Within a half an hour my friends, a lot of you, turned to twitter.

You tweeted the journalist. You tweeted the news station. You responded to the other reporters. You shouted from the rooftops that this was my recipe and I deserved credit for it.

It made me cry.

Within 2 hours of being hung up on, I had an email with an apology and there was a link on the website back to my recipe.

Because of you, the network of amazing food bloggers. And twitter. And the power of social media.

Thank you. To all of you, you know who you are. I heart you a million times over.

Now, ready for some truffle action? Because next to a peanut butter football, these Peanut Butter Covered Oreo Truffles are the freaking bomb and they’re so good you’ll scarf them down all at once.

I promise.

You’ve had an Oreo Truffle before, right? Oreos + Cream Cheese + Food Processor = Oreo Truffle innards. They’re amazing (and you can do them with pretty much any cookie, not just Oreos!) and they’re super easy to make. Almost every blogger has their favorite version.

Up until now, mine has been my Oreo Truffle Brownies, where you didn’t have to make the truffles, you just coated them on top of brownies. #Genius

These are my new favorite way to eat an Oreo Truffle. What sets them apart? The coating. I mixed some peanut butter into some vanilla Candiquik and double dipped the truffles in it. So when you eat them you get the Oreo taste with a peanut butter finish.

They’re so addicting. And so good. And I dare you to just eat one.

You should take that dare. Excuse me, I have a bag of truffles to go eat.

Peanut Butter Covered Oreo Truffles

Yield: 16

Ingredients:


  • 15 Oreo Cookies

  • 2 ounces low-fat cream cheese (or you can use regular)

  • 8 ounces vanilla Candiquik (or other almond bark/candy melts)

  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

  • Sprinkles


Directions:


  1. Place Oreos and cream cheese in the bowl of a food processor. Run the processor until the mixture comes together. This took mine about 1-2 minutes. If, for some reason, the mixture is not able to form balls after the processing (if it’s too crumbly still) you can add up to 1 more ounce of cream cheese, but mine only needed 2 ounces.

  2. Scoop 1 tablespoon sized balls and place them on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Chill while you prepare your candy.

  3. Melt white chocolate according to package directions. Halfway through melting, add the peanut butter to the bowl. Stir often, until smooth. (I heated mine for about 1 1/2 minutes on HIGH, stirring every 30 seconds and adding the peanut butter after 45 seconds.)

  4. Tip: heat an electric griddle to 200°F and line it with a kitchen towel. Place your bowl of melted candy on the griddle so it stays melted during dipping.

  5. Dip each truffle in the candy and tap off the excess. I use a spoon to coat the candy, then I place the truffle on a fork and tap off the dripping candy. Use a toothpick to carefully transfer the truffle from the fork back to the cookie sheet. Repeat with all the truffles.

  6. If it’s cool in your house and the truffles have hardened by the time you dip them all, re-dip immediately. If they’re still wet, chill until hardened, then do the second dipping. We’re double dipping because the dark truffle shows through the light coating. The second dip is optional.

  7. Decorate with sprinkles while still wet from the second dip. Chill until set.
