For a recipe that’s double stuffed with chocolaty goodness, look no further than these Oreo truffles. First, combine cream cheese and vanilla extract using an electric mixer. Next, add crushed Oreos to the mix and fold them into the batter with a rubber spatula. Take a spoonful of the batter and roll it into a ball. Place the balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and freeze for 15 minutes. After freezing, coat the balls in melted white and dark chocolate. Then top them off with some chocolate drizzle and a sprinkling of more crushed Oreos.
High-five your sweet tooth with these strawberry cheesecake truffles. This recipe involves a batter made from crushed sweet-meal biscuits, cream cheese and powdered sugar combined with diced strawberries. Once mixed, roll the batter into balls before placing it in the freezer for 30 minutes. After freezing, coat the balls in white chocolate and top with a pink chocolate drizzle made from white chocolate and red food coloring.
Peppermint and chocolate are two flavors that are “mint” for each other. Begin by adding crushed wine biscuits to a bowl, followed by a mixture of sweetened condensed milk, butter, peppermint oil and cocoa. Roll the batter into a ball. Then make an indent in the center, and fold in a peppermint filling made from butter, powdered sugar and peppermint oil. Have them chill in the freezer before coating them in melted chocolate.

After baking, break up the carrot cake mix into crumbs and combine with cream cheese. Roll the mixture into balls and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Then coat the truffles in white chocolate, and top with crushed pecans.
