Shamrock Oreo Truffles

Shamrock Oreo Truffles

Happy 100th Birthday Oreo Cookie!

The Oreo cookie is an American Born Classic. What is your favorite way to eat a Oreo ?

Option A) Eat cookie whole and dip into milk

Option B) Pull the cookie apart and lick the white frosting out of the center before dipping your Oreo in milk.

Shamrock Oreo Truffles

According to Kraft, over 50 percent of people if asked will choose option B. Of that 50% of people who choose to split open their cookie, most of them are women. The first Oreo cookie was sold in New Jersey in 1912. These first these cookies were called Oreo biscuits and sold in tins to attract the UK market. Now, there all kinds of Oreos from the double stuff, different kinds of cream fillings and mini Oreo cookies to everything in between.

Shamrock Oreo Truffles

The rich dark crispy chocolate cookie and rich creamy filling of the Oreo cookie can bring a smile to both the  young and old.

To give the Oreo cookie the proper Birthday send off I promptly poured myself and big glass of cold milk and set aside a few Oreos on a dish. I could not resist, the temptation was too great, I like to split my cookies and lick the filling then take a final dunk in my milk before devouring. I was a kid all over again.

Shamrock Oreo Truffles

However the adult in me was thinking this is quite a yummy cookie and it has all kind of gastronomic potential written all over it. Shall I make a ice-cream mint pie with a Oreo crust? How about chocolate covered Oreos? How about a St. Patty's Day Oreo Truffle?

Shamrock Oreo Truffles

Oreo's 100 Birthday and St. Patrick's day and everything green, rainbows, lucky charms, pots of gold and luck are just around the corner in just a few day. Please keep reading to find out how you can enjoy both of these celebrations in a very yummy way...

Shamrock Oreo Truffles

Makes about 28 truffles (I think, teenagers were eating them faster than I could count them)

Recipe adapted from Kraft's Food.com (Easy Oreo Truffles)

Shamrock Oreo Truffles

  • 38 Oreo cookies
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • 3 packages  220 grams of White Chocolate (I used Cadbury Dream white chocolate)
  • few drops of mint flavoring (optional)
  • Green sugar Sprinkles

Step 1: Put Oreo cookies in a sealed baggies and beat until fine crumbs. (Looks like dirt)

Step 2: Add Cream cheese and mix together well. Add a couple of drop of mint flavoring, if you wish. (I used my hands to mix together and I felt like I was making mud pies)

Step 3: Roll Oreo cookie cream cheese mixture into about 1 inch balls. Set aside in freezer for about 10 minutes just to set up (There is something very childlike about playing with our food)

Step 4: Break up the white chocolate into small pieces and microwave in oven for just a few seconds or until it starts to melt and stir. (Have a two-year old temper tantrum when your white chocolate seizes up because the humidity level in Hong Kong is 100 percent) Buy some new chocolate and start again this time being very careful to avoid any moisture going into the chocolate, but of course you will never need to worry about this.

Step 5: Remove Oreo balls from freezer and set up and assembly line. Place one Oreo ball on a fork and drizzle the white chocolate over the top making sure that it is completely covered. Set the chocolate covered ball on a parchment paper lined tray and sprinkle with Green sprinkles. Repeat process with the rest of the Oreo balls.

Step 6: Store in Refrigerator in a Tupperware or in freezer for longer storage options.

Step 7: Enjoy Shamrock Oreo Truffles with a big glass of milk or maybe an Irish coffee.

  • I’ve gotta admit I’m not a fan of Oreos, though my canteen at work has started serving an oreo cheesecake which is starting to win me over a little 😀 These look wonderful though – rich centres, and creamy, smooth exterior. Wouldn’t matter what was inside these things – could be spinach – and I’d still lap them up! 🙂

    • Charles, you are so humorous! I think that for many, Oreo biscuits are not always the biggest hit because many people like their cookies soft and chewy. It is the whole texture thing. However these little truffles solve that whole texture problem as they are creamy and silky on the inside with a firm chocolate texture on the outside. Hope your day is grand, BAM

  • Oh my goodness, those look to DIE FOR!!!! I’m craving oreos so badly now.

    • Thanks Joanne! I do not know if I can get the boys to save any for the actual St. Patty’s day holiday. They are going fast. I might have to lock them up.

  • One word! Yum 🙂

    • Thanks Tandy. I know that you cannot eat these due to the sucrose. However, I am working on some little treats that you can even try that have an Asian Inspiration with alternative sweeteners. I need more time in Bam’s Test Kitchen and then will send your way. Take Care

  • Oh, my…Grocery Day today…just might have to buy some Oreos.

    • Even here in Hong Kong, the Oreo cookie was celebrated. They had a sale at parknshop. ( and it was not even because something was passed its due date- lol)

  • Wow… I think this is fantastic, oreo day and St Patty’s with the green sprinkles all rolled into one pretty truffle! I’m into pulling those oreos apart! xo Smidge

    • The truffles are little more difficult to pull apart than traditional Oreos, but they are a 2 bite treat. Happy Early St. Pattys Day Smidge!

  • These are adorable! And I agree – I’d love to pull these truffles apart like an oreo:)

    • Thank you. I loved cutting the truffle in half so you can see the yummy creamy chocolate part of the truffle. “Life is like a box of chocolates… you never know what you get until you bite into one of them.” I think this one, most chocolate lovers will like. Take care

  • Okay, this is the second post I’ve seen featuring oreos this week and it’s killing me! I love them, but try and stay away from them. Now, looking at these gorgeous truffles, I’m craving them! I pull mine apart, too, natch. That Stig, he sure does get around and he must really have a sweet tooth. 🙂

    • The Stig sure does get around. Still waiting to see if my husband notices. Oreos are on sale this week. Go ahead and get a small snack pack to celebrate.

  • I love these! I’m a mint oreo person anyways – it was always hard for me to pass up the fudge mint ones when they were making them. 🙂 I am definitely dip the whole thing in milk gal, though with these I could do milk on the side. 🙂

    • Hello Courtney, if you can get your hands on mint oreos this would be wonderful. Oreos are becoming more popular in Asia but still they only have the traditional flavors so I had to add the mint flavoring. Take Care

  • Yummy yummy!! And what a cute little festive treat!! I used to lick out the filling of the Oreos, too, but I’ve since become a full on dunker, and like them to get a little soft from the milk 🙂 Gotta love Oreos and all the goodies that can be made with them!!

    • I love when the Oreo gets a little soft after you dunk them in the milk. The Oreo also takes on a whole new creamy rich texture when you mix with the cream cheese to make these little truffles. So many treats to make with Oreos and such little time. Take care, BAM

  • What a wonderfully creative way of celebrating the festivities – oreos never looked so beautiful!

    Cheers
    Choc Chip Uru

    • Thanks CCU! I am sure there has to be an Oreo or 2 in your kitchen this week. Take care, BAM

  • Zoe @ Pantry and Fridge

    Don’t you love these?!! I have a similar post 🙂 I have made these for years – people beg me for the even though I give them the recipe ?

    🙂 These look beautiful 🙂 I used mint chocolate chips last Christmas for a minty flavor 🙂 Went over big. I love your photos!!

    Zo

    • I will have to head over to your post to check them out. I am thinking that this recipe would be awsome with “thin mint” Girl Scout cookies. What do you think? BAM

  • Who wouldn’t love these. There is one problem though…I’m sure they are addictive.

    • Karen, You are so correct. They are addictive. I put them in the freezer to make it more difficult for myself to indulge. However, this did not stop me one little bit. Take Care, BAM

  • Lisa

    What an awesome idea for St Pat’s Day! I’m pondering some myself, but it’s not looking promising blogwise. Regardless, I can live vicariously through these yummy truffle beauties!

    • Thanks Lisa. I think I have been in the same situation. I have been cooking up a storm but I have not posted many lately. It is just the lack of time factor.

  • What a clever idea for those 100-year old Oreos, BK. Love the photos esp. with them displayed on the leaf dishes. Going to pin this one on my St. Pat’s Day board.

    • Thanks Kathleen! I actually made those leaf dishes in pottery class when I lived in Japan. I used templates of actual leaves from my walks in the parks in Japan. Take care, BAM

  • These are lovely, festive, and who doesn’t love oreos? I have to pack my bags full when I visit family out of the US because some countries do not have oreos. Isn’t that terrible!

  • can’t believe you actually made those leaf dishes in Japan! really cool!

    I remember loving oreo cookies when I was a kid. I love eating them with a glass of milk. these look like a posh nosh version of my childhood snack! =)

  • I think I could eat these for the next hundred years…YUM!

    • Thanks for your lovely comment. I think my family is having a competition on who can eat the most as from what I know now I should have doubled or tripled the batch.

  • So very, very awesome!

    • Thanks Geni, these little treats are not going to make it until March 17th as the family is inhaling them.

  • I have seen several oreo truffle recipes lately. I have a huge weakness for oreos… thanks for making it even worse 😉 hahah Much love!

    • Hello Jen, Just give in and try one. After all, its the holiday. How did your competition go? Take care, BAM

  • Oh i should make those for the old Codger he would love them! c

    • LOL old Codger…. Yes indeed he would love these Shamrock Oreo Truffles, they have been inhaled by my teenagers.

  • Wow.. this is the perfect birthday tribute to Oreo. I am not a big eater of Oreo’s but I would certainly try out these truffles

    • Thanks Kay. The consistency of the oreos is completely transformed when you add the cream cheese. Take Care, BAM

  • Jo-Lyn

    Oh, yeah. These are right up my alley!! =) Ahahaha… Nom Nom Nom….

  • LOVE Oreos! Awesome job 🙂

    • Thanks Lesley. You can go ahead and splurge and have a few now that you have just ran 10 miles. Take Care, BAM

      • Hahaha, I know I say that a lot! Well…I just ran 10 miles, I can have that!

  • I have been looking for ideas for St. Paddy’s day, this looks like an awesome idea Bam!! Yummy 🙂

  • Beautiful presentation and looks scrumptious! Can’t believe Oreos have been around for so long.

    • Thank you. I was actually relieved to hear the cookie is older than I am. There are so many Indian dishes I want to learn how to make or try. Will you be sharing how to make a dosa soon?

  • What a festive way to celebrate Oreo’s 100th and St. Patrick’s Day! I love oreo truffles – the filling is heavenly!

    • Thanks. A great way to celebrate the Oreo’s 100, but I am saddened to say my teenage boys have already inhaled them so they will not last until St. Patty’s Day. I guess it is time to make another batch. Take care, BAM

  • Just stopped by to check out those babies again! 🙂 They look really yummy!

    • Thanks Sibella. Very easy to make. Less than 30 minutes from start to finish! Hope your weekend is grand.

  • Oreos … truffles … you made my day!

  • What a great tribute to Oreos! Without doubt one of the best package cookies ever. I’m an Option B person, BTW. 🙂 The idea for truffles is brilliant – I wouldn’t have thought of that. But now that I know? I’ll have to try these someday! Thanks for a really nice post.

    • Thank you. Actually all the credit goes to Kraft. I just took a spin on their already great cookie. Thanks for stopping by.

  • Congrats my friend – I have awarded you two very deserved prizes – come check them out here: http://gobakeyourself.wordpress.com/2012/03/15/belated-happy-national-pie-day/

    Cheers 😀

  • I fall in the category B as well. What a great recipe to celebrate oreo’s 100 and st. patrick’s day!

  • Nami | Just One Cookbook

    Wow Oreo has been around for 100 years? I’m shocked! Your truffles… a-mazing. I actually want to eat your truffles than regular Oreo!

    • I am so happy to hear the cookie has been around a lot longer than me and are still going strong. I think you are right oreos are pretty good just plain, but these little truffles are a little bit of indulgence. Have a great weekend! BAM

  • My daughter is in love with oreo cookies, she would be over the moon if I made these for her

    • The whole process for making these little truffles can be done in less than 30 minutes, low fuss and low ingredients. A great fun task for even the young ones as no oven required.

  • Oh! I didn’t realise they were 100! I do take option B most of the time, so much more fun and your Shamrock truffles look even better.

    • Option B is my favorite as well but if you have a 30 minutes you have time to make these very easy truffles. Take care, BAM

  • So creative! Yummy and addictive!!

    • They are a bit addictive. Thank you for the follow. Looking forward to keeping in touch. Take care, BAM

  • These look wonderful for St Patrick’s Day — or any time!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thanks Bernice. They are quite addictive so I put mine in the freezer to make it a little more difficult me to go in for those midnight snacks. Happy St. Pattys day to you.

  • I don’t really like Oreos, I think that’s a British thing! But, when I do eat them, I split it open scrape off the filling and eat the chocolate biscuit by itself. Yes, even my American children look at me in disbelief 🙂 My son loves these Oreo balls but I’ve never made them. You have inspired me to try and have a go. Happy St Patricks Day, BAM!

    Nazneen

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hello Nazeen, You are so very funny… The plain part of the chocolate biscuits are maybe similar to the taste of the chocolate “digestive biscuit”? I understand where you are coming from as the oreo would also not be my first choice in a cookie but something happens when you take these crumbs and mix it with rich cream cheese and dump it into white chocolate. The oreo transforms from a regular cookie to a very delightful truffle. I would not have believed it myself until I tried it. Take care, BAM

  • Anne ~ Uni Homemaker

    *Gasp*! How did I miss this post? I love Oreos and any recipe with Oreos is a thumbs up in my book. Lovely post Bobbi.

    • Bams Kitchen

      Happy St Pattys Weekend Anne, actually you did not miss a thing just a recipe from the archives and I thought it was perfect to share with St Pattys day tomorrow. I am glad you like it. It it amazingly simple.

  • BAM, so pretty. Oreos, yum. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Happy Belated St. Pattys day to you too. These are really fun and easy. I have keep them in the freezer as they are super addicting.

  • Hi. Bam! I’m catching up on your recent posts. I can guarantee that my boys, though not teenagers, would devour these. And, so would I! I deffinitely know that they would much prefer to see their mum making these (as opposed to pan-fried cauliflower!). 😉

    • Bams Kitchen

      Hello Allison, it is so nice to have you visit. I am not and will not claim to be a child psychologist but I can tell you that these little truffles will win kids hearts over cauliflower most days.

  • So cute! what a great idea!
