Eyeball Truffles

1 Nov

I know, I know. Halloween was yesterday! But these eyeball truffles are too delicious, too fun, and too adorable (in a gruesome kind of way) not to share with you! I seriously had so much fun making these, I can’t wait for next Halloween so I can make them again! These eyeball truffles are decorated Oreo Truffles or Oreo Balls! They are so versatile and delicious I can think of about a million ways to decorate them and excuses to make them all year round! When I make them next year, I am going to fork each ball with a plastic fork for an extra gross but fun touch, not to mention awesome presentation!

Eyeball Truffles {Oreo Balls/Truffles}

Ingredients

1 package of Oreo cookies

1 {8 ounce} block of cream cheese (softened to room temperature)

1 package of almond bark {or white chocolate chips or white candy coating}

1 bag of M&Ms

Red Decorating Sugar

Red Decorating Icing

Black Decorating Icing or Frosting

Directions

Using a food processor, process Oreos into very fine crumbs. If you don’t have a food processor put the cookies in a large Ziplock bag and smash with a rolling pin until you have very fine crumbs. Add in the softened cream cheese and continue to pulse {or mix throughly by hand} until it is smooth, well combined, and looks like a thick paste.

Using a cookie scoop or two spoons, drop teaspoon and a half sized balls onto cookie sheets lined with wax paper. Freeze the balls for at least 30 minutes, or overnight. The longer they freeze the better they hold up in the warm almond bark.

Using a double boiler, or a metal bowl over a pan of boiling water, melt the almond bark according to directions on the package.

Dip each ball in the almond bark using a spoon and rolling it around, or poking the ball with a toothpick and swirling it around until coated. Shake off any excess almond bark and place the coated ball on wax paper to dry.

Before the almond bark starts to dry, place an M&M in the center and sprinkle the red decorating sugar on top. Once the coating is hardened nothing will stick to it. Add the black icing or frosting to the center of the M&M for the pupils. Then add blood shot squiggles around the sides.

Store in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
