Delish Balls

Christened "Delish Balls" by our six-year-old unpaid apprentice, and so they shall now be known. I guess you could call them by their more prosaic name of Nutella Oreo Truffles, but, really, why would you? Nutella + Oreos = instant happiness. These are very easy truffles - the trickiest part (or, at least, the most time-consuming) is dipping them in chocolate; otherwise they're easy-peasy.

Delish Balls AKA Nutella Orea Truffles

servings: 45 truffles
time: 1 hour (includes 30 minutes chilling time)

  • 24 Oreo cookies (we used Double Stuf Oreos)
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 4 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (we used semi-sweet, but use whatever type of chocolate you like best)
  • 1 Tbsp shortening
  • 3 Oreos without filling, crushed, for garnish
  1. Use food processor to pulverize 24 Oreos.
  2. In large bowl, mix Nutella and softened butter.
  3. Add crushed Oreos and mix until thoroughly incorporated.
  4. Use 1" cookie scoop to measure out mixture and roll into balls.
  5. Place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and chill for 30 minutes.
  6. Melt chocolate chips and shortening.
  7. Dip each ball into your melted chocolate and place back on waxed paper.
  8. Sprinkle with additional crushed Oreo if desired.
  9. Chill until serving.
Truffles are so beautiful. Look at all that chocolate! 

 We're all in agreement that you can't go wrong with Oreos and Nutella, right?
