Chocolate covered strawberries are one of my favorite snacks, mostly because I feel like they're a little bit healthier than a normal dessert because of the fruit. So I have now combined my recent Oreo truffle recipe with my favorite chocolate covered strawberries to create these delicious explosions of flavor.
Makes: 36 strawberries Time: 45 minutes
- 36 washed strawberries
- 1 box Oreos
- 1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
- 2 cups of chocolate chips
Step 1: Grind the Oreos into crumbs using a food processor. Leave about 1/4 cup for toppings. Add in the cream cheese to the rest and mix until smooth and combined. Cover and place in the fridge.
Step 2: While the truffles are chilling, use the small end of a melon baler to scoop out the root side of the strawberries.
Step 3: Ball the chilled truffles unto small balls and stuff into each truffle.
Step 4: Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or using a double boiler and dip the truffle end of each strawberry into the melted chocolate then place on a foil lined baking sheet. Sprinkle left over Oreo crumbs on the chocolate before it melts. Repeat with each strawberry.
Step 5: Let cool in the fridge until chocolate is set you are ready to eat. Consume within 48 hours.
