Red Velvet Oreo Truffles for Valentine’s Day ♥

Red Velvet Oreo Truffles

I have one last quick and easy treat for Valentine’s Day,

Red Velvet Oreo Truffles!

These truffles are no bake, use only 3 ingredients (4, if you use sprinkles) and are made with Valentine’s Day Limited-Edition Red Velvet Oreos!

I’m a fan and lover of all things Red Velvet, so when I heard Oreos was introducing a Red Velvet flavor for a limited time in honor of Valentine’s Day I went to find a package. (I found them at Target.)

As you might guess, the cookie part doesn’t taste very red velvet-y, but I think the cream cheese flavored center makes up for it! The packages of Red Velvet Oreos are smaller (10.7 ounces) and priced the same as a full size package of regular Oreos.

That’s the price of love I guess :)

 In addition to your 10.7 ounce package of Red Velvet Oreos (about 20), you need 4 ounces of cream cheese, softened, and Almond Bark or Chocolate Coating (like CandyQuik), candy melts, or chocolate chips.

 I like the convenience of CandyQuik since it comes in blocks with a convenient microwave disposable tray. Use the brand of almond bark you can find, it all works equally well or substitute candy melts or chocolate chips if you prefer. I’ve had comments about where to find almond bark. You can find it on the baking aisle near the chocolate or sometimes like around Valentine’s Day, you can find in the produce section by the strawberries.

Put your Oreos in a food processor and pulse until they are fine crumbs. Add your softened cream cheese to the crushed Oreos and pulse again until well combined. If you don’t have a food processor, place your cookies in a baggie and crush them with a rolling pin, then use a mixer or your muscles :) to mix the cream cheese with the cookie crumbs until smooth.

Roll your cookie mixture into 1” sized balls. Place your balls on wax paper in the freezer 30 – 45 minutes until firm. Melt candy coating according to directions on the package. Place your chilled truffle ball on a fork and dip into the chocolate. Spoon chocolate on top. Once the ball is covered, tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate and place on wax paper to set.

The almond bark sets up more quickly than melted chocolate chips, so add your decorative sprinkles right away if desired. You could use any flavored Oreo and white or dark chocolate candy coating for your truffles. You can serve or give the Red Velvet Oreo Truffles in decorative mini baking cup papers. I use two per truffle, one turned inside out, and added some Wilton Jumbo Hearts Sprinkles to decorate a white platter to serve! You can find a printable recipe here.

    Happy St.Valentine’s Day MaRy !! I love the red velvet , it gives me sweet memories of my mom for she would make the cake from scratch , but she had a different frosting that I love much more then the cream cheese.

    I’ll trade you a red velvet brownie for a red velvet Oreo truffle :) I looked for those red velvet Oreos everywhere with no luck :( Your truffles are just the right size for a delightful bite! They look so happy on a sea of mini heart sprinkles! We are on the coast this weekend and it’s cold here too, but warmer than most of the country~ so so thankful I don’t have to deal with all that snow! Happy Valentine’s Day Mary, I hope the girls get a doggie Valentine treat!

    I will look for these, but don’t usually have luck finding the special Oreos. Will pass this recipe along to my niece who lives to make the truffle pops. Thanks for sharing. These sure make a pretty valentine.

Thanks for your comments~ they make my day :)
