Both Peanut Butter Oreos and Golden Oreos are now widely available in all major UK supermarkets.
I whizzed up 280g of peanut butter oreos in a food processor until they became fine crumbs. I saved three of the oreo for my photos and also to taste them!
I mixed 140g full fat cream cheese into the oreo crumbs until fully combined.
I took bits of the mixture and rolled them into balls between my palms. The mixture was a little sticky but easy enough to work with. I put the balls onto a lined baking tray and put them in the freezer for an hour.
To cover the truffles I used 200g peanut butter flavour candy melts. I’d never used candy melt before and when they melt they are quite a lot thicker than chocolate. To thin them down I used about 1 tsp of a vegetarian shortening called Crisp n Dry. This gives it the same consistency as chocolate so much easier to dip.
For decoration I melted 6 blocks of dark chocolate and drizzled it over the truffles.
Once the chocolate is set, dig in! I told you these were a super easy treat to make. The peanut butter flavour of both the candy melts and oreos is sooo good! Try not to eat them all at once!
I am entering these into myself and Cakeyboi’s challenge, Treat Petite. This month’s theme is anything goes!
NB. I was sent the oreos for free to bake with, all opinions are my own.
