Let’s get this out of the way, I did not use Oreo brand sandwich cookies to make these truffles. I used Wegmans Double Stuffed Os.
Ok, confession over.
Most people have their favorite cookie. I’d say that over 80% of the people I ask would describe a perfect chocolate chip cookie. Warm, dense, and I agree, that is yummy.
I myself, have always preferred the humble Oreo.
Why? Because I’m a dipper. I love to dip things in other things.
An Oreo is [soy] milk’s favorite cookie is it not? I have counted the amount of seconds it takes to get the perfect amount of soggy, but still a bit crisp, on the outside of an Oreo. It is 14.5 thank you very much.
My dad taught me a trick after he watched me lose my cookie in my milk one too many times. He taught me how to appropriately spear the Oreo cream center with a fork so I wouldn’t get my fingers messy nor lose the cookie. That was a game changer, but I’ll admit, I haven’t used that Jedi technique in a while.
After watching The Parent Trap (yes…with Lindsay) I began to dip my Oreos in peanut butter. Did peanut butter replace milk? Why NO! I simply dipped them in the peanut spread and then dipped them in the milk. The peanut butter actually helped to keep one side of the cookie crispier and I enjoyed that even more.
So thank you Lindsay, you wise Master Jedi.

I created these truffles with these memories in mind. I branched out from the peanut butter to almond, but essentially, this creation is a fancier version of my favorite after dinner treat. What I also enjoy about this recipe is that you can also use other flavors of Oreo and it will work well. I might even try the mint next time, why not get crazy?
The coating is simple enough to change chocolates or even put something on the outside. My chocolate had cacao nibs in it, so I felt like adding nuts on the outside was overkill.
Enjoy the recipe! It also doubles well…if you want more than 6 truffles…just saying 🙂
