This delicious and easy dessert takes one of your favorite cookies and puts it in a bite-sized finger food dessert form! These Valentine Oreo Truffles are dressed up for the day of love but can be customized for any occasion or holiday!
These truffles, along with cake balls always seem so intimidating to me for some reason. Then when I actually make them I am reminded how easy they are but how much of an impact they make to those eating them!
I really need to make these more and they are so versatile that they can be decorated for any occasion. Different colored sprinkles, chocolate or other melted color candy melt drizzle, the sky is the limit!

How to Make Valentine Oreo Truffles
Using a food processor, or blender such as Blendtec, pulse the cookies until they are a fine crumb.
In a small mixing bowl, combine Oreo crumbs and cream cheese and mix to combine.
With your hands, roll 1 inch balls of the oreo mixture and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
While those are chilling, roll 1/4 inch balls from the fondant. You will need roughly 30-40.
Squish two balls together and pinch the bottom to create a heart point.
Repeat for all the fondant balls. In a microwave-safe bowl, add the candy melts and coconut oil and microwave in 30-second increments until smooth and creamy. Be sure to mix between intervals.
Using a fork, dip the Oreo balls into the chocolate mixture and tap off excess candy melt. Place back on to the parchment-lined baking sheet.
While the candy melt coating is still wet, add your fondant heart(s).
Let them sit for about 45 minutes until the candy melt shell hardens, then enjoy!
