With a package of Oreos and a block of cream cheese, you’re halfway to the cutest Halloween treat on the block. Have the kids help out with forming the balls and pressing on the candy, then send them to school with truffles galore. Or, set them out at your own Halloween party. They’re just as fun for adults as they are for kids. Letting them set up in the fridge allows the truffles to firm and the toppings to stick. But if any of the adornments begin to slide, re-adhere them with a dot of melted chocolate.
1 14.3 oz. package cream-filled sandwich cookies, such as Oreos
5 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
Candy, for decorating (see below)
How to Make It
Pulse the cookies in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Add the cream cheese and pulse until smooth.
Roll the mixture into 21 tablespoon-sized truffles and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Decorate per below instructions. Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour.
For the mummy:
Fill a piping bag with melted white chocolate (alternatively, fill a ziplock bag and snip one corner). Pipe the chocolate onto the truffle horizontally in a back and forth motion until the face is almost entirely covered. Top with candy eyeballs.
For the cat:
Place quartered Hershey’s kisses on top of the truffle to make ears. Use quartered pink Starbursts Minis for the nose, white sprinkles for whiskers, and finish with candy eyeballs.
For the bat:
Place chocolate chips on top of the truffle to make ears. Remove the top of a cream-filled sandwich cookie and cut or break in half to create wings. Finish with a red sprinkle for the mouth, and candy eyeballs.
For the owl:
Place chocolate chips on top of the truffle to make ears. Arrange orange sprinkles in an upside-down triangle for the beak, and stick yellow sprinkles into the bottom of the truffle for feet. Finish with large candy eyeballs.
