New Twist on Dipped Strawberries
Do Oreo Truffle Dipped Strawberries count as a health food recipe, yes? Because I mean, strawberries and all that. So I added an Oreo truffle to the mix…pffft, this is totally going under the “healthier” dessert category. Plus, regular old chocolate dipped strawberries are so 1985.
Maybe you’ve seen those cheesecake strawberries floating around the internet? Those are fabulous – they inspired a recipe in my book, Dessert Mashups. In that recipe, I stuffed regular chocolate truffles inside the strawberries, which was so rich and indulgent. When I was trying to think of an easy Valentine’s Dessert that wasn’t too heavy (like my Nutella truffles), I immediately remembered those strawberries.
This recipe is SO good: 4 ingredients, under 30 minutes. These Oreo Truffle Dipped Strawberries are so easy to make!
- Candy Melts – I prefer using Ghiradelli chocolate melts vs almond bark because they taste so much better. They come in milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate (use your favorite).
- Oreos (regular, not double stuffed) and Cream Cheese (softened) for the oreo truffles.
- Strawberries: Ones that are large and bright red!
How to make Strawberries Stuffed with Truffles
- Wash and dry the berries very well – any water will seize your chocolate. Cut off the stem and used a melon baller to scoop out the center.
- Mix the Oreos and cream cheese in a food processor until it’s thick and like paste.
- Scoop 1-inch sized balls then chill to firm them up.
- Stuff a truffle in the hole in your berry and try to flatten it against the top of the strawberry to cover the wet part as much as possible.
- Then all you have to do is dip the tops in chocolate. It’s like an inverse dipped strawberry!
Oreo Truffle Dipped Strawberries
- 8 (91g) Oreo cookies
- 1 ounce (57g) cream cheese
- 8-10 large strawberries washed and dried very well
- 4 ounces (113g) semi-sweet baking chocolate or Ghiradelli Melts
- 2 additional Oreos or Sprinkles optional
- Place 8 Oreos in a food processor with cream cheese. Process until a thick paste forms (scraping down the sides of the food processor as needed). Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and scoop one tablespoon balls of truffle onto the cookie sheet (about 8). Chill until strawberries are ready.
- Slice the stem off the strawberry and scoop out the center with a small melon baller. Wipe the edge of the berry as dry as possible.
- Place chocolate in a small microwave safe bowl. I like to use paper Dixie bowls for easy clean up. Heat on high power in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Place remaining 2 Oreos into a plastic bag and crush using a rolling pin. (Those are for decoration, feel free to use sprinkles instead.) I recommend dividing the chocolate into two bowls in case it’s in a finicky mood and seizes. If that happens, drizzle the chocolate over the top of the berry instead of dipping it.
- To assemble the berries: place an Oreo truffle in each strawberry cavity. Dip the tops in the chocolate, then sprinkle with crushed Oreos or Sprinkles. Sometimes the chocolate can have trouble with the wet berries, so make sure to dry them as much as possible before dipping.
- Place the dipped berries back on the cookie sheet and chill until set. Store in the refrigerator. Best eaten the same day they are made.
- Make sure to pat them dry, especially the cut part that you’ll be dipping in the chocolate.
- I like to melt my chocolate in a disposable Dixie bowl – you know those kind they sell by the paper plates? They microwave well and you can just throw them away after.
- I used semi-sweet baking chocolate for my dipping, but you can also use chocolate chips or almond bark or Candiquik.
- For some reason, my chocolate did not seize, which I consider a true miracle. Often when dipping things like berries, too much water gets into the chocolate, which makes it get all clumpy and ruins it. I suggest splitting your chocolate into two bowls before you start to dip, just in case. If the chocolate starts to seize, use the rest but use a spoon to drizzle it over the top instead of dipping the berry upside down into it.
- I sprinkled crushed Oreos on the top but you can use sprinkles too!
