Oreo Cocoa Krispy Truffles – Super simple, with just a few ingredients!

Oreo Cocoa Krispy Truffles – The little guy and I made some treats! This kid is Oreo OBSESSED but then again, who isn’t?!!

1/2cup cocoa krispies
5 MEGA stuff Oreos (anything less is for sissy’s!)
32 grams fat free cream cheese
CandiQuik (@candiquik) white melting chocolate (best stuff EVER)

This is a good one to get the kids involved with but it can be messy! Fun, but definitely messy. Place 4 of the Oreos in a zip lock bag and crush them either by hand or with a mallet. Dylan chose to beat them senseless! Mix the crushed Oreos, cocoa krispies & cream cheese together in a bowl until well combined – and this is where it gets messy. We found it easiest to do it by hand vs. using a spoon! Once well combined, roll into 6 even sized balls and set on wax paper. Place the balls in the freezer for 30-60 minutes to harden before dipping in chocolate. Melt chocolate in a small dish for about 60 seconds, stirring at the 30 second mark. Insert a tooth pick into the top of the ball and dip in chocolate. Set back on wax paper and repeat with the remaining 5. Place back into the refrigerator/freezer until the chocolate has set. Take the last Oreo and remove the filling. Crush the 2 cookie pieces in a small bowl. Spread some of the white filling on top of each truffle and then dip into crushed cookie. Store covered in the refrigerator.
