An three ingredients only recipe perfect for Birthdays, Christmas, School Fair or just as a little treat. Fun to make with the kids to!
When I was tasked with bringing an dessert to Christmas dinner, first thing that i come up with is to make truffles, but not just any truffles, you all know by now my tasty little weekness, I know, it’s horribly predictable but this tasty black devils made my decision easy – it got to be Oreo stuffed truffles.
It’s always a hit at parties, so I figured it would be a pretty safe bet. But there is one thing that’s bugging me, they were so delighted with spinach artichoke bites (made of crescent roll dough) couple weeks ago. Then I got to thinking that it would be a better idea to transform Oreo stuffed truffles into bites. In other words to spoon oreo-cream cheese-delicious-melt-in-your-mouth cream into bites of crescent roll dough.They are really yummy and most importantly, so easy to make.
- 1 (8 oz.) package softened cream cheese
- 2 tubes of crescent roll dough
- 2 (2x4 oz.) package mini Oreo cookies
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
- Lightly spray mini muffin pans with baking spray or use silicone muffin pan.
- Start by crushing one package of Oreo cookies (do not buy Double Stuff Oreos,
- just plain mini Oreos will do the trick) by using a rolling pin, or a food processor.
- Reserve from other package 12-14 cookies to be used as garnish.
- In small bowl combine crashed oreo cookies and cream cheese until thoroughly mixed, and set aside.
- Working with half of the dough at time, roll your crescent roll dough out onto a large cutting work surface.
- Using a knife or a pizza slicer , cut the dough into 6 roughly even squares, don’t worry if they’re not perfect…mine certainly didn’t, but in the end turned out just fine.
- Place each of the dough squares into a mini muffin pan.
- Cover the dough squares with aluminum foil and fill with a few baking beads.
- Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven without turning it off.
- Remove the aluminum foil with the baking beads.
- Spoon the oreo cream cheese dip into each little cup until they are all full.
- Place in oven and cook for 15 minutes or until the edges are browned, but not burned.
- Remove from oven and garnish each bite with mini-oreo cookie on top,
- leave to cool for 5 minutes in the pan before transfering onto a serving platter.
That’s it. They look quite impressive and might give people the impression that you spent hours in the kitchen whipping up these little beauties.
