Oreo Truffle Pops

I wanted to make little Ramadan favors when we had our girls iftar. I got too busy with cupcakes, but I'm glad I at least got to make these for Eid! 





Here's one of those "everything you need" pictures! I never take one of these but this recipe is so easy to make, all you need is a few things. (I forgot to add the paper liners in this picture).



The smell of oreos. Nothing is more tempting when you're fasting!



Dump the entire package of oreos in your food processor.



Process until they are fine crumbs.


Reserve 1/4 cup of the crumbs and set aside.



Add your softened cream cheese



and blend until its all mixed together



Roll into balls the size of a tablespoon and place on a plate lined with parchment paper. Stick them in the freezer for 20 minutes. 


Melt your candy coating in a double broiler by placing a heat-safe bowl over a small pot of simmering water. I bought vanilla flavored Wilton white candy melts from Michaels. It tasted just like white chocolate and hardened very nicely!



Take the end of the lolipop stick and dip it into the melted candy coating, about 1/4 inch up the stick. Don't be shy, we want enough on there rather than too little. Stick it about half way through the oreo truffle. Return to the freezer for about 5 more minutes so that the coating can firm up. This trick really helps your lolipop stick stay in place.



(Didn't get a picture for this step) Put some of your melted candy coating in a short cup or mug and dip the truffle to coat all sides.



Sprinkle with reserved oreo crumbs on all sides and allow to set up on a plate lined with parchment paper. Try to work as fast as you can so that the oreo truffles stay cold which helps the lolipop stick stay in place. If you want to take your time, I suggest keeping half in the freezer while you work on dipping and coating the others!


If you wanted the tops to stay round, you need a piece of Styrofoam so that they can stand up. 



If you have pretty mini cupcake liners, you don't have to worry about your pops having a flat top



Stick the liner inside your treat bag first



Make some cute tags



I found some ribbon (top) that looks just like an oreo cookie!


Cut each piece of ribbon to be 8 inches long. You can make 27 bows with 6 yards of ribbon.


You could tie the bag with this look if you didn't have a tag


Or you could tie a bow without a tag


But if you do have a tag, stick it on one side of the ribbon...


and then firmly tie a bow!




Oreo Truffle Pops
Yield: 33 truffles

1 large package of Oreo cookies, about 45 cookies (family size)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
12 oz. package candy melts or almond bark
lolipop sticks
mini cupcake liners
plastic treat bags
6 yards of ribbon

Melt your candy coating in a double broiler by placing a heat-safe bowl over a small pot of simmering water. Take the end of the lolipop stick and dip it into the melted candy coating, about 1/4 inch up the stick. Insert stick into the center of a truffle, be careful not to go all the way through the other side. Return truffles to the freezer for about 5 more minutes so that the coating can firm up.
