  1. Truffles? Yes please. I just love my chocolate and eat it daily. Plus I’ve always enjoyed Oreos so this is the perfect combo.

  2. Was a mix of my two most favorite desserts. This is a total win-win for me. I will definitely be making these.

  3. They look delicious and seem pretty easy to make! I’ve never made truffles before, but there’s a first time for everything =)

  4. This is such a simple recipe but sounds like it’s so good! I would get myself into trouble with these though… bite size always makes it way too easy to eat a whole batch at once! Haha

  5. OMGoodness… I’ve got a package of Oreo’s I just bought. I’m going to need dipping chocolate but I think I can arrange that. I am so making these!!

  6. They look so yummy! I would not make these as I feel like I would eat them all haha, but if someone else made these then I’d only eat a few so that would be awesome.

  7. Those truffles look divine! It is just amazing how many ways you can use Oreos. Enjoy them as they are, or crush them and make something even more delightful – just like what you did! Yum.

  8. Oh yum!’ These are perfect for a galentines night I have planned. Now just need to figure out the right wine pairing. 😉 thanks for sharing!
