I have an adorable and delicious Easter treat to share. These are Oreo Truffles made with golden marshmallow crispy Oreos and marshmallow fluff, and then coated in colorful candy coating. Such a perfect treat for Spring holidays!
Oreo truffles became one of our favorite treats ever since we made the Peppermint ones for Christmas. They are so easy to make, don’t require any baking and so much fun to play around with different flavors. You simply mix crushed Oreo cookies with cream cheese, roll them into balls, refrigerate and coat in chocolate or candy melts. Try adding different flavors inside too, like mini chocolate chips, nuts, caramels and so much more.
Making these truffles can be a fun afternoon with kids. Have them help you decorate the truffles with different sprinkles or drizzle with different color icing. Best part is that you can play around with flavors and colors. Like here, I made pastel colors for an Easter celebration.
We have a Spring party coming up in my son’s class and I’m still trying to decide on the treats for the kids. I’ve already made the Flower Bed Cake and it’s definitely a great choice. But these Oreo Truffles were very popular. I brought them to his class as a special treat and I didn’t think that I would get out alive. Kids swarmed me when they saw them, screaming “I want the pink one,” “I want the blue one…” I’m just glad that I brought enough! Our class is full of picky kids and I’m happy to say that they all ate them in a flash!
