Candy Corn Oreo Truffles

Candy Corn Oreo Truffles

This past weekend, we experienced a “cold front” in Louisiana. It went from a heat index in the 100s to a much more manageable heat index in the 80s. Not cold by any means, but it was definitely nice to walk outside for 5 minutes and not sweat like crazy!

I’m a big fan of the fall. Football season, cooler weather, spiced candles and fun fall foods. One of my favorites is the Halloween Oreos. I realize they’re just plain oreos with orange dye in the cream, but darnit, those seasonal oreos are just more fun to enjoy! I was actually looking forward to buying my first pack of halloween ones, when I noticed Candy Corn Oreos. Yes. CANDY CORN OREOS.

I couldn’t help myself. I had to get them. I had to make sure that I didn’t eat the whole box, though, since I had plans for these: the super popular oreo truffles. I ended up trying one, which was VERY sweet…sweeter than normal oreos, actually. At first, I couldn’t put my finger on the flavor until my husband mentioned it–the filling tastes like buttercream. Not super candy corn like, in my opinion, but I still wanted to make truffles out of these.

After crushing them, the filling was a festive orange color, which would be so cute for fall or halloween parties. I do have to note that the candy corn oreos don’t contain nearly as many oreos as a regular box does, which explains why you don’t need as much condensed milk (as the regular recipe here) to make these.

Ingredients:

  • 1 box candy corn oreos
  • 1/2 cup of condensed milk
  • 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/8 tsp. canola or vegetable oil
  • candy corn candies, for garnish

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, crush the oreos (with cream) until the oreos are fine crumbs. Add the oreos to a medium sized bowl, and stir in the condensed milk, until it is well-mixed.
  2. Using a small tbsp. scoop, scoop out truffles and roll them between your hands into a ball shape. Place them on a small pan, and allow them to freeze for a few minutes (just to set better for easier dipping). While they are freezing, place your chocolate chips and oil in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave the chocolate on high in 30 second increments, stirring well for every 30 seconds, until the chocolate is melted and easy to stir. Prepare a cookie sheet lined with wax or parchment paper for the finished truffles to cool on.
  3. Take the balls out of the freezer, and individually dip each truffle ball in the chocolate and place the truffles on the cookie sheet. Add a candy corn (or any other decoration) before the chocolate starts to dry. Once all truffles are done, let them sit until the chocolate sets (or if you’re in a rush, place the truffles in the freezer for the chocolate to set). Enjoy!
