Oreo Truffles


I have a confession to make.


Sometimes, I’m pretty damn lazy.


I’m the kind of person that makes herself scrambled eggs for dinner because she can’t be bothered cooking.

I procrastinate on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram instead of doing my assignments.

I vacuum my dog instead of brushing her (and then sometimes I can’t even be bothered doing that).


I wear creased blouses instead of ironing my clothes.

I spend hours browsing through Foodgawker instead of writing blog posts.

If I really want to bake something but don’t have all the ingredients in the pantry already then I won’t, just because I can’t be bothered driving the 2 seconds it takes to get to the supermarket.


I often grab a cookie and have a coffee instead of making myself breakfast. Or if there’s no cookies sometimes I just don’t eat.

And there are some days where I don’t put any make up on in the morning because I know I won’t be bothered washing it off later. And I’m a little obsessive compulsive so if i put it on I have to wash it off later. None of that sleeping with it on!


Yeah. So I’m lazy. And a little weird.

But these truffles are perfect lazy-girl baking.

They’re actually no-bake. They take all of 5 minutes, and you get a chocolate fix at the end.

No one could possibly be too lazy to make these, right?


OREO TRUFFLES

Adapted from the beautiful Averie Cooks.

2 1/2 packets of Oreos (total of 375g, or 13 oz)
1 packet of cream cheese, softened (250g, 9 oz)
1 small block milk chocolate

Crush the Oreos until fine. You can use a food processor if you like. Stir in the cream cheese.

In a medium bowl, grate the milk chocolate.

Scoop teaspoons of the Oreo mixture and roll it into balls. Coat in the grated chocolate and place on a tray.

Refrigerate and enjoy being lazy! Makes 25 – 30 large truffles.

    I laughed when I recognized myself in your post. Truffles look good (and easy). It’s funny, I , too, was just about to post about cooking with Oreos – coming soon.

  4. I can’t keep Oreos in the house because I will seriously just sit and keep dunking them in milk until they are all gone :) These are so pretty – I love the way you presented and photographed them, you have such talent!!

    • Haha yum, Oreos and milk :-) I only buy them when I want to bake with them!
      And thanks Maura! I don’t know about talent though, my stuff is a bit hit and miss so it’s more like I’m sometimes lucky!

      • I don’t think it’s luck at all, you have a wonderful gift for presenting your food in a beautiful way and taking great pictures!! How do you do your lighting? Is it all natural light? I’ve been thinking about setting up some kind of light source or using white poster board to bounce light off of, but haven’t gotten around to researching it.

        • Oh Maura that’s so so nice of you to say :-) Thank you!!
          My lighting is all natural. I push a table up near a window and get snapping. I don’t really use much of a set up, but when I do see a lot of shadows I stand up the lid from a big white shoebox I have opposite the window to bounce back light. See? Lazy. Haha

  5. Haha I LOVE that you vacum your dog LOL :) These sound/look amazing. Yummo xx

  6. Beautiful photos! The oreo truffles look delicious, thanks for sharing!

  7. Love it as I am a lazy girl too ;) & my best friend vacuums her dog too!!
    The oreo truffles look delicious, will have to try making these soon.

  8. These look absolutely fantastic!
    I’ll definitely make these truffles!
    Maybe laziness is not that bad!

  9. Oh my! I’m not sure what you look like, but we may be twins separated at birth. You were describing me!
    I love that these don’t require melted chocolate coating. Love them that way, but it definitely takes longer. Thanks!

    • Hey Marci! I have a lazy twin? That’s awesome :-) haha. You could probably coat them in anything! melted choc, coconut, crushed biscuits – they’re so easy and adaptable :-)

    how long do you refrigerate for?

  11. These look so good. I’m not a huge fan of cream cheese- does it give these truffles a tang or do you not even taste it?

  12. That’s me exactly. I only actually cook when I have a craving. So that only results in actual lunch / dinner two or three times a week. The rest of the time I have… not so normal lunch / dinner food.

    These are so easy looking. I’ve bookmarked them for Christmas!

    • Hahah Erin, if this was you, it would also include: “I put dirty dishes in the sink and pretend they don’t exist for a week before freaking out because Mr. T is coming home and I need to wash them all. Can I just buy new dishes instead?” :-D
      Does the rest of the time you’re not having actual lunch/dinner mean you’re eating baked goods for lunch/dinner? because I totally love that!

  13. This is the third recipe that I’ve tried from your blog and everything has turned out pretty well even though I am an amateur :) Anyways, this isn’t for the lazy really.. I took quite a while rolling them into balls, cos I’m always so slow at making everything… :P So, you’re really not that lazy if this is your go to on a lazy day..
    Anyways, brought about 30 pieces to a gathering, went away for 20 mins, came back and they were all gone!!

    • Hey Emma! I am so happy to hear that you baked these and other things from the blog and liked them! :-D Hahah but the food processor makes them and you don’t have to bake them or wait for them to chill before you eat or anything so they are pretty lazy – you can sit down at a table and roll them! :-P Happy to hear that they all got gobbled up too!

  14. I love how beautiful you just plain old (freaking perfect and delicious) oreo cookies. I also love that you admitted to vacuuming your dog. I literally laughed out loud.

    Maybe I’ll try making these little cake (without-the-stick) pops!!

  15. I don’t like Oreos but I love the image of you hoovering the dog! Genius!
