Forever Friends: How Not to be Pathetic on Valentine’s Day

Yeah, sure, this day is for couples and cutesy things and stuffed bears and whatever. Not only is it my dad’s birthday which makes the day less about romance and such, I like to think of Valentine’s Day as friend-appreciation day 🙂 Every Valentines day, I like to make little gifties for my friends, just to let them know I care about them. This year, I kind of went a little crazy. I made about 50 Oreo truffles for my besties, made them each a little card and packaged them all up in these adorable green bags I found at Target! These truffles are unbelievably easy and totally not just for Valentines Day, make them anytime and you will make many friends 😉

Oreo Truffles

These are the candy version of cupid’s arrows –  be careful, may cause food-lust! 😉

  • 1 package oreos (I made one batch with golden oreos and another with regular ones!)
  • 1 8-0z package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package candy melts – any color and flavor OR 1 package chocolate chips
  • 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • sprinkles or other decor!
  1. Crush oreos or use a food processor to get very fine crumbs
  2. Using your hands, incorporate the cream cheese into the oreos (this will be sticky business!)
  3. Roll into 1-inch balls (or smaller if you have lots of friends!) and place on a waxed-paper-lined cookie sheet
  4. Melt chocolate or candy melts in 30 second intervals in the microwave. Take the bowl out each time, stir the melts and then put them back in until you have it melted enough. Pour oil in to thin out the melted candy enough to coat oreo balls with.
  5. Using a fork, take semi-frozen oreo balls and dip them into the melts. Place them on waxed paper and decorate with sprinkles. Put back in fridge for 30 minutes or until chocolate has hardened.
  6. Enjoy! Happy Valentine’s Day!
