These truffles are made with golden oreos and cream cheese, and of course lots of sprinkles! Only 4 ingredients- and they are no bake!
So I’m continuing on with my no bake trend here at Boston Girl Bakes. The sun is OUT here and man oh man it’s hot. Boston in the summer time is definitely a great place to be. Wintertime, mmm, not so much. But summertime, on the other hand, is whole another matter.
Of course that means, as much as I love to bake, I am definitely keeping that oven off more and more. In a second floor apartment with the stove on- um gross.
So I’ve been whipping up some pretty tasty no bake treats lately. Like these no bake S’mores Truffles– only 4 ingredients! Seriously. Check those bad boys out.
Those no bake truffles then inspired me to make another no bake treat for you all. And when Oreos are on sale (ok I’m starting to wonder if they are just on sale every week?) you know I have to make something with them. So when I saw the package of Golden Oreos I knew with some sprinkles and white chocolate these would be crazy good.
And I was right.
After eating one (ok maybe it was three….) I decided they tasted like if Birthday cake and frosted animal crackers got together and had a baby- it would be these. So in other words…um no bake heaven.
Ok so let’s talk about how to make these truffles.
A Few Tips
- Use A Food Processor– These truffles come together super fast. Just simply throw your Oreos and cream cheese into your food processor and process until combined. After that, transfer the mixture to your bowl, and stir in your sprinkles. If you use your food processor to mix in your sprinkles, you run the risk of crushing and blending these sprinkles into them and making some weird rainbox combination. I mean, unless you’re into that. Then by all means. I think folding works best here though!
- Scoop and Freeze! These truffles need some time to set up in the freezer after you scoop them. You want to use a 1-inch cookie scoop to make even sized truffles then roll them in the palm of your hands. Place them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, or use a silicone baking mat. The freeze for 10-30 minutes.
- Take a Few Out at a Time. Trust me you can’t dip 36 truffles in record time, so that by the time you get to the last one it’s still frozen. Trust me. You can’t. So take a few out, dip those, go back to the freeze for more. Otherwise you will have your truffles falling off into the warm chocolate creating one GIANT mess.
How To Melt Your Chocolate
Ok so this isn’t the first time I’ve made chocolate covered anything on this blog. I’ve tackled this process a few different way on melting the chocolate. Here are few different suggestions-
- Microwave– I have definitely used my microwave countless times to melt the chocolate. Like these 3-ingredient turtles. And these Football Oreo Truffle perfect for game day. The microwave can be your friend or your foe. How to make sure to not burn your chocolate- Microwave in 30 second intervals. Stir. Repeat. Just be sure to stir in between interval so as to ensure you don’t burn the chocolate! With this process though you might run into your chocolate hardening again on your before you have used it up. My suggestion: Only melt a little chocolate- a cup or so-at a time.
- Double Boiler– Another great method. One I probably use the least. A double boiler is simple a heat resistant bowl set over a pot of barely simmering water. You don’t want the water to touch the bottom of the bowl, and you want to keep an eye on the water so it doesn’t just burn up and disappear on you. The good thing on this method is it keeps the chocolate melted for you.
- Chocolate Melting Pot– Ok this might be my favorite method of all time. This chocolate melting pot by Wilton is by far the easiest method to melt your chocolate I think. All you need to do is throw your chocolate in, turn it on, and let it melt. Also, it keeps it warm and melted for you as you dip all those truffles. So easy to use. And this melting pot also comes with some dipping tools as well.
How To Dip Them
- Fork and Toothpick Method. Ok sounds fancy right? Ok you’re right, it doesn’t. But it gets the job done. This method I’ve relied on until I invested in fancy dipping tools. You simply place your truffle on your fork, dip and roll it around in your chocolate. And then with the truffle on the fork after it’s all covered, be sure to let the excess drip off. Tap your hand, not the fork because it’s less impact on the truffle to get the excess chocolate off. Then place your truffle back on your cookie sheet and use the toothpick to help slide the truffle off carefully. It’s not fancy, but it gets the job done!
- Dipping tools– Ok, so when you’re ready to upgrade you can purchase these candy dipping tools. They work the same way as the fork and toothpick method, but the tongs are skinnier than a fork, so less chocolate is wasted. They have nice long handles too. If you buy the chocolate melting pot by Wilton, it does come with a set, but they are plastic. I find the metal ones work better because they are little thinner and not as clunky to use.
What Chocolate To Use
Again you have a few options here.
- Chocolate Chips. Not my favorite because they don’t always melt well, due to the additives in the chips. I’ve used them in a pinch, and they can work. These are definitely my least favorite, but if it’s all you got then go for it. Keep in mind, the chip are more difficult to melt, keep smooth, and not end up ceasing up on you in the end into one big chunky mess.
- Candiquick. You usually can buy this in most grocery stores. It’s usually found where you would find the rest of your chocolate and baking items. This option melts easily and comes in its own microwaveable tray too!
- Candy Melts- I love candy melts and have used them a bunch of times. They come in a variety of colors so you can stick to traditional white, or have fun and pick colors that match your holiday theme. Fourth of July? Make them red, white, and blue. Halloween- make them orange and black (yes they even have black!). You can get them off of Amazon, but I prefer to buy them at Michaels (or a similar craft store). I can usually get a coupon online and get a great deal on them!
Ok- well I think that covers everything! Now you can make these no bake treats like a pro! If you make these no bake truffles, take a photo and include the #bostongirlbakes so I can follow along with you on your baking adventures as well!
