Vegan Oreo Truffles

Vegan, Dairy-free

Oreos are 2 delicious chocolate biscuits sandwiched together with a white cream filling. Not many people know that Oreos are actually suitable for vegans, but they do contain wheat, so those with wheat intolerance's/coeliac should not have this recipe.
This recipe is not the healthiest, but if your a chocolate & oreo fan, you'll be obsessed!
These delightful little truffles are super moorish, you won't be able to have just one!
They would be a lovely gift for birthday or made for special events!
 You don't even have to use Oreos,use any cookie of your choice!
It would be great fun for children to get involved in too as they can also use their imagination to decorate them.

This Recipe makes approximately 12 large truffles!
...
Ingredients-
-1 Pack of Oreos
-4.5 ounces of vegan cream cheese (I used Vio-life which i picked up in Tesco)
-1 & 1/2 bars of dairy-free chocolate (I used Kinnerton dark)
-White chocolate (optional)
...

Step 1- Place the oreo cookies into a sealable plastic bag, cover with a tea towel and crush.
(you could always use a food processor to crumb the cookies)
Step 2- When the oreos are nice & crumb like, pour them into a large mixing bowl & add in the cream cheese.
Step 3- With a wooden spoon, mix the cream cheese & oreos together until fully incorporated.
 The mixture should turn a gorgeous 'classic grey' oreo colour.

Step 4- With clean hands, roll the mixture between your palms until you have small 'truffle' like balls and place them onto a lined tray.
Try to roll equal sized truffle balls.
Step 5- When they are all rolled & look irresistible, pop the tray into the freezer and leave to set for around 30 minutes.

Step 6- About 5 minutes before the balls are ready to come out of the freezer, pop the chocolate into a bowl on-top of a saucepan with boiling water, creating a banmarie and allow the chocolate to fully melt.
Step 7- Get the oreo balls out of the freezer & dunk them in the gooey chocolate! 

Step 8- Place the coated truffles back on to the lined tray and when all the truffles are fully coated, pop the tray back into the freezer for 10-15 minutes until fully set.
(As the truffles are very cold, the chocolate will set almost immediately)
Step 9- Melt your white chocolate and with a spoon, using fast motions zig-zag the chocolate over the truffles creating a decorative effect.

I served my truffles in individual mini cupcake cases which i picked up in Sainsburys supermarket.
 I think they look super cute & inviting!
 This is definitely a treat everyone will enjoy and want more of :P
