These started out as truffles, and evolved into one of the most delicious, easiest desserts in the planet.
The truffle filling is a classic combination of two flavors any sane individual adores: chocolate and peanut butter. Stuff that decadent mixture in between two Oreos, roll it in some sprinkles, and voila! No bake, super easy and totally gorgeous.
The sprinkles are great too. I made them for a party to celebrate the birth of my new niece, hence the pink you see in the picture. You can do blue for a boy, colorful for a child’s party, or any other color/shape sprinkles that match your theme and or color scheme. If you don’t have a particular color that works, use plain white- it fits the Oreo look really nicely.
I love how the finished product has a homogenous look- kind of like you took an Oreo and made some improvements. Oh, wait. That’s exactly what we did here.
20 Oreos, crushed into crumbs in the food processor (about 2 1/4 cups crushed)
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
25 whole Oreos
(about) half a cup of sprinkles, white or color of your choice
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the Oreo crumbs, butter/margarine, and peanut butter.
Carefully, using a knife, open the Oreo. Scrape the filling intothe bowl, and set cookies carefully on the side. Repeat with remaining Oreos.
Mix Oreo filling into the rest of the mixture. I like to use my hands here to really incorporate all of the ingredients into a smooth dough.
Take a small amount of dough and roll it into a ball, roughly the size of a walnut. Sandwich between two cookies, then press down to force the filling just until the edge of the cookies. Roll the stuffed cookie in the sprinkles, then repeat with remaining cookies.
These cookies freeze nicely.
Yields 25 large, stuffed, delicious cookies.
