Oreo truffles stuffed with raspberries and wrapped in a deliciously sweet nutella glaze.
There’s regular oreo truffles, and then there’s oreo truffles stuffed with raspberries and covered with NUTELLA. These blow regular oreo truffles out of the water! Easily the best I’ve ever had. They are so incredibly decadent and such a fun, sweet treat for Valentine’s Day.
Speaking of Valentine’s Day…
Did you guys know that I started this blog a year ago this week? I posted these bacon stuffed mushroom as last year’s Valentine’s Day recipe. 76 recipes later and I still have so much to learn, but if you click on that link, I like to think it’s pretty clear that I’ve improved at least a little! I was absolutely clueless when it came to food photography, and those first recipe pictures are a little bit embarassing. Like, they are really bad. But the best part, is that I started a blog out of my love for cooking, and now food photography has become one of my favorite hobbies. I truly enjoy working on TFG, and I am really looking forward to my second year blogging. So THANK YOU for stopping by, and let me know if there is anything you’d love to see this year!
Now…back to the truffles & time for the breakdown:
- To start, use a food processor to finely crush your oreos. If you don’t have a food processor, put them in a large zip loc bag and beat the crap out of them until they are in very small pieces :). Add your cream cheese and blend together until the mixture is thick and sticky.
- Grab about a tbsp of the cookie mixture and use your fingers to flatten it out. Place a raspberry in the center, and fold the oreo mixture around the raspberry.
- Roll into little balls and then place in the freezer for 30 minutes. This part is important. And I know it’s the part that you guys are going to want to skip. Don’t do it! Your oreo truffles have to be very cold and hardened to get the glaze on nicely.
- Okay here comes the best part. The Nutella Glaze. This stuff is a chocolate lover’s dream come true. If you’ve ever made oreo truffles before, you typically use melted chocolate bark, and it creates a thin, hard layer around the truffle. Nutella glaze is different. It’s moldable. It will set and hold it’s form, but it won’t harden the way melted chocolate does. It’s rich and decadent and it’s amazing. Make it by whisking together your nutella, powdered sugar, and heavy cream. Whisk it together completely. (It’s gonna take a little bit of elbow grease guys.) THEN melt it for 30 seconds. Now it’s ready for action.
- Dip the oreo truffle in the glaze, just enough to cover it, and use your hands to wrap the glaze around the truffle. Roll the ball inbetween your hands to make it smooth and pretty. It’s a little bit messy, but the glaze is oily enough that it won’t stick to your hands when you roll. When the shape is formed, I like to pass it back and forth between my palms to get rid of any palm lines or bumps. Like I said, the glaze is moldable, so if you need more on the truffle just add it!
- Freeze again for at least 15 minutes and then enjoy! I like to top mine with a little bit of Maldon’s sea salt flakes for presentation and because I love salty sweet!
- ½ package oreos
- ½ block cream cheese (4 oz.)
- frozen raspberries
- ⅓ cup nutella
- ⅓ cup heavy whipping cream
- 1¾ cup powdered sugar
- Crush oreos into very small pieces using either a food processor or a large ziploc and something to smash them with.
- Mix in cream cheese until very well incorporated. (Can continue to do this in the food processor if using.)
- Grab about 1 tbsp of cookie mix and use your fingers to flatten it out. Place a frozen raspberry in the center and wrap the cookie mix around the raspberry, forming into a nice ball.
- Repeat process until the cookie mix is gone (should make about 11 or 12), and place in freezer for about 30 minutes. (Do not skip this part, it will make the nutella glaze MUCH easier to work with!)
- To make the glaze, whisk together the nutella, whipping cream, and powdered sugar. It takes a little elbow grease to make sure it's all mixed up. When it is well combined, then microwave for 30 seconds. (Note- the glaze will set, but not harden like regular melted chocolate. It is softer and moldable.)
- Remove your oreo truffles from the freezer and dip in the nutella glaze, one at a time. Dip just enough to cover the truffle, and use your fingers to wrap the glaze around the truffle.
- Rub the truffle between your palms to make it pretty and smooth. It is a little messy, but the glaze is oily and moldable enough to not stick to your hands.When the truffle is fully covered in the glaze, I like to pass the ball back and forth between my palms to smooth out any wrinkles!
- Freeze for 15 more minutes and enjoy. Try to keep these as cold as possible, refrigerating when not eating.
- If you would like, you can top with salt flakes for presentation and a little salty/sweet action.
