Oreo Truffles? Yes. Oreo Truffles covered in peanut butter? Yes x1000.

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 truffles

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

Instructions

  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.

  2. I hear you! Finding other people take credit for our recipes and photos is so darn frustrating. People don’t realize how much work goes into baking and photographing and editing and pinning – I’m SO glad it all worked out. Um, oreo and peanut butter truffles? I don’t think iIcould stop eating them … best.combo.ever.

  3. I am glad you got some justice but seriously that is what it took? Ridiculous! Clearly you are beyond talented with your chocolate and peanut butter creations!! Keep them coming!

  4. Ok I am GOING to talk about these amazing Oreo Balls in a second, first

    OMG congrats on all the good stuff! and OMGEEEE I am soooo glad that people spoke out and got you justice-I can never get over how people just think they can steal things because “it’s on the internet” (or pinterest, in this case). Gotta love vindication :)

    anyways, back to these because DOROTHY! SO YUMMYYY!! pb and oreo’s are always a perfect flavor combo. true story.

  5. I know what you mean. When I hear people say “I found it on Pinterest”. Well, yeah, but what about the blog that it came from? Genius idea with the Peanut Butter coating. Love it.

  6. I’m so glad everything worked out with your awesome dip recipe. #thatwascrazy
    And congrats on your magazine feature, YAY!!! So proud of you!
    Also, oreo truffles are my weakness. Then you added peanut butter. I die.

  7. These do look amazing! What is even more amazing is the blogging community! They definitely know how to get behind your and be so supportive! Glad it came out in your favor!

  9. Peanut butter in adorable little bitesized format is dangerous. In the best possible way :) pinned

  10. Did you make these for me Dorothy? Yes? :)

    I cannot believe that you were not originally linked back to. It frustrates me when others refer my my recipes as pinterest recipes. What! No, they were made in a kitchen by a person – not a virtual bulletin board. Good for you for ranting and letting out your frustration. Happy that your readers stood up for you, like you deserve! Congrats on the WW feature, friend!

  11. First, congrats on the Woman’s World! That’s amazing. Second, I cannot believe that a news website was so unprofessional! They should know better. The fact that they said “well it’s a pinterest recipe!!” makes me angry. I’m glad you finally got credit! Third, these photos are gorgeous! So are the truffles- I can never get mine to look that perfect.

  12. Dare to eat one? Not accepted. Because I would fail! :) PB white chocolate is pure brilliance. Love these, Dorothy! And your photos are gorgeous!

  13. Oh my gosh, I never would have thought to mix Candiquik with Peanut Butter! So cool. This post had my emotions all over the place. First I was so excited to hear you got published in Women’s World and then I was so angry to hear about that news station. I am glad to know that in the end, you got properly credited, but I can’t even believe that they used Pinterest as the excuse! Do they just think these images appear? Shame on them.

  14. You’re the bomb freaking diggity!! Serves that idiot right for hanging up on you!! Love that you gave Oreo Truffles new life with the peanut butter coating!! Cheers to a fabulous week XO

  15. Ohmygoodness Dorothy! For starters, CONGRATULATIONS on both of your features! That’s super exciting. You really deserve the publicity, and hopefully you gained lots of new readers from it! Secondly, I’m so proud of you for contacting the TV station. You deserved better treatment than they initially gave you, and it takes guts and courage to reach out and ask for the link you deserved as a blogger. GO YOU! And thirdly… Oreos + PB + truffles? I am SO glad we don’t live any closer right now because I would’ve pounded down your door asking for the entire batch, which I would’ve eaten by myself in one sitting. No shame. ;)

    Big fan of Women’s World — because they feature YOU! :-) Love your recipes. How unprofessional of that channel. As though they couldn’t have re-clicked to get to the originator of the website. I always click through when I pin stuff because I think recipe roundups aren’t fair. I find the originator and THEN I pin. You guys deserve your just desserts, right (little stupid pun there)? I can’t believe when you called them out, they were like, “neener.” Really unprofessional, glad you got it resolved. Take care and keep up the wonderful, fun work.

  17. Those look really good, anything with Oreo is good!!
    michael recently posted..Making Crème BrûléeMy Profile

  18. I have to go buy Women’s World! You are soooo talented, in baking, writing and photography, and congrats for protecting your ownership of your work! You are getting to be famous. So looking forward to your cookbook! Our church is having a bake sale this weekend, and I am contributing your Maple Walnut Truffles (with full credit to you on the label, “recipe available on “Crazy for Crust”).

  19. Ok, seriously that is awesome! Well, first off that you were featured in women’s magazine and then again on a news segment. Glad that they realized that they were wrong and finally credited you, seriously what’s wrong with people these days. {but woot woot for blogger power} :)

    These look amazing and incredibly addictive. I think I would have some issues putting them down!

  20. I’m so happy that it worked out! I know I always take it personally when my pictures or recipes are used without credit. I guess they don’t realize how hard bloggers work on them! Anyway, these truffles look wonderful though (and addicting)!

  21. And this is why I am a food blogger! An amazing group of people who have each others backs. These truffles look like a reeses and an oreo had a baby. Love them!
    Nicole @ Young, Broke and Hungry recently posted..Coffee Dark Chocolate Chunk Banana BreadMy Profile

  22. Yea, that’s definitely much better than a traditional Oreo truffle. Now make them with Pb oreos too!
    Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie recently posted..Mexican Stuffed ShellsMy Profile

  23. I love this story. Never underestimate the power of the people. How ridiculous though that they didn’t bat an eyelash until they were getting lots of bad PR! Saying that a recipe is “from Pinterest” is like finding a Disney movie on YouTube and saying it came from YouTube.

    Just so you know I also tried the Nutter Butter cookies in a recipe like this and dipped them in chocolate, not much flavor except for the chocolate on the outside. Maybe adding some peanut butter to the crushed cookies would give it a little bit more flavor, cause the recipe said they would taste like peanut butter cups.
