Saturday Do-It-Yourself: Pumpkin Spice Truffles

Posted by on Sat, November 1st, 2014 at 11:00 am

Halloween has come and gone, but that shouldn’t stop us from making delicious items with pumpkin ingredients! Today we have just what you’re looking for from stephaniemounts!

(Easy, 3-ingredient) Pumpkin Spice Truffles:

Fall is my favorite time of year. I love everything about it: the cool weather, the color of changing leaves, but most importantly, PUMPKINS! Whether they are from a pumpkin farm, canned, or as an added flavor to Oreos Cookies, I love it all! As of September 24th, you might have noticed a Limited Edition of Oreo cookies: Pumpkin Spice Creme Oreos!!!! These are delicious on their own, but I thought these would taste amazing in the form of Truffles. So with 3 simple ingredients, you can turn these awesome Oreo cookies into pure, smooth deliciousness! I made a batch for my house recently, and they were gone within three days.

Ingredients:

  • 40 Pumpkin Spice Creme Oreos (each package of the Limited Edition Oreos contains 24 cookies, so you will need 2 packages)
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese, room temperature
  • 12 oz melting white chocolate
  • Optional: seed of 1 vanilla bean

Instructions:

  1. In a food processor, finely chop the Oreo cookies. Reserve about 1/4 cup of the mixture to top the truffles.
  2. Add 8 oz cream cheese (at room temperature) to the cookie mixture and blend well to obtain a thick paste-like mixture. Put this mixture into a covered container in the fridge overnight OR for about 3 hours in the freezer if you don’t want to wait until the next day. This is a very important step as you will end up with a gooey mess if the mixture is too soft when you dip it into the warm melted chocolate.
  3. When the mixture has become solid enough, melt the white chocolate (with added vanilla if desired) either in the microwave or on the stove (it is best to melt the chocolate in 3 separate batches).
  4. Using a spoon, scoop out enough of the cookie mixture to form a 1-in ball and dip each truffle into the melted chocolate (you can use two forks to easily dip the truffle and roll it around the melted chocolate). Make sure you get rid of the excess chocolate off each truffle so that the hardened chocolate layer isn’t too thick. Place each truffle onto wax paper and sprinkle a little of the reserved cookie crumbs on top. Let it cool, and store the truffles in the fridge in a sealed container. These will keep for quite a while (but chances are they won’t last that long!) in the fridge.

Holy schnikes, these look good! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us!
