Halloween Eyeball Oreo Truffles made with oreo cookies and coated in melted white chocolate, then decorated with edible eyes and colourful icing, some spooky Halloween treats that are frightfully delicious. Quick and super easy to make, this no-bake dessert will go down a treat with the whole family.
I'm one of those people who like starting decorating way too early for any celebration you can possibly think of, and then get sick and tired of the whole thing by the time it comes to it.
But I suppose it's the actual preparation that is fun and keeps you excited. And same goes for food. Although as a food blogger you have to start early, or you'll miss the chance to have your recipes stand out. Hence why you'll see me baking and cooking for Halloween early in September.
Now, this recipe is a no-bake one, which makes things even easier. As much as I love cooking/baking from scratch, a nice and quick recipe is always welcome when you have keen kids around who want to get their hands messy. The messy bit is quite unavoidable actually.
Truffles make a great dessert for every occasion. They are the perfect bite-sized treat, and you can get as creative as you like when it comes to filling and decorating. And these spooky Halloween truffles are absolutely delicious!
- oreo biscuits/cookies
- sweetened condensed milk
- white chocolate
- edible eyes - to decorate
- coloured writing icing - to decorate
Step-by-step photos and instructions
For this recipe you only need a few ingredients: oreo biscuits, white chocolate and condensed milk for the truffles, and edible eyes plus decorating icing for the decorating fun.
- remove the cream off the oreos, and add the biscuits to a food processor and blitz until you have fine crumbles - I find that the truffles are too sweet if the cream is kept on. If you don't have a food processor, add the biscuits to a ziplock bag and use a rolling pin to bash them to fine crumbs
- add the condensed milk to the crumbs, and blitz again - you will have a dense filling now
- use your hands to shape balls out of the mixture: I got 12 truffles, but you can get more or less depending on the size of the balls
- break the white chocolate into pieces, and add them to a bowl set over pan with simmering water - make sure the heat is low, so the chocolate can melt nicely, if the heat is too high, the chocolate will become lumpy
- add the truffles to the bowl of melted chocolate, and coat well, then use a fork to remove them and place on a non-stick paper to set
- once the chocolate is hard, add a blob of coloured icing on top, and place the edible eye in the middle
- use red icing to trace lines that resemble blood veins
These truffles are incredibly rich and sweet, despite their gruesome appearance. The mixture might feel too hard and dry at first, but the truffles stay incredibly moist for a few days.
If you are not making them for Halloween, you can leave to truffles simple, just coated in melted chocolate, either white, milk or dark, and you have some impressive bite-sized treats for any occasion.
The condensed milk can be replaced by cream cheese for a fresher touch - you might need to add less cream cheese to begin with, and add more if needed to get the right consistency.
Oreos are such a versatile treat, and there are tons of ways to transform them into a nice Halloween treat. I also used them for my Halloween monster oreos, and they went down a treat too. And that's pretty much it! Some spookilicious treats for kids and grown-ups too to make Halloween freakingly sweet. Happy Halloween everyone!
