Rich, creamy and decadent is today’s Cookies and Cocktails theme. And the best part? No baking involved ( yeah! ) and both require only 3 ingredients!
Oreo Cookie Truffles
- 1 (15 oz.) package Oreo cookies (36 cookies)
- 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, at room temperature
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Using a rolling pin, crush cookies in a ziplog bag ( or use a food processor).
Reserve about ¼ cup and place the rest in a large bowl. Add cream cheese and mix together until combined.
Using a small cookie scoop (2 teaspoons) scoop / shape into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with wax or parchment paper. Refrigerate 30-60 minutes to help them firm up.
Melt chocolate over a double boiler until smooth. Remove truffles from the refrigerator, reshaping into balls if needed. Drop truffles in the melted chocolate, coating evenly using 2 forks.
Place truffles back on the baking sheet and sprinkle reserved crushed cookies on top. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve. (Optional garnish: sprinkles or melted white chocolate)
Can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container up to 2 weeks.
Cookies and Cream Martini
- 1 ½ oz vanilla vodka
- 1 ½ oz creme de cacao
- ¾ oz heavy cream (or milk)
Optional glass rim: crushed Oreos from truffle recipe
If desired, rim martini glass with creme de cacao and then with the crushed Oreos.
In a cocktail shaker, combine vodka, creme de cacao and heavy cream into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into martini glass.
