Another nice thing about this recipe is that it doesn’t call for lots of fancy ingredients. You probably don’t keep the yellow candy melts on hand, but they can be ordered from Amazon or picked up at your local Walmart.

And you can pick up the candy eggs on the Easter candy aisle at your local grocery store or order them too. If you like candy Mini Robin Eggs, you may want to use those. Or you might want to use Cadbury Easter Candy Coated Mini Eggs if you like them better.

Oreo truffles for spring

To make your truffles, you’ll need these ingredients:

18 vanilla Oreo cookies

4 oz. cream cheese, softened

¾ cup yellow candy melts

25-30 candy eggs (Robin Eggs or Cadbury Eggs)

Yields: 8-10 Oreo truffle nests

Then follow these steps:

  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.

2. Place Oreos in a food processor and pulse until crumbled into fine bits. (You may place a few Oreos at a time in a ziptop bag and let your children smash them with a rolling pin if you like! The pieces won’t be as smooth and uniform, but who cares?)

3. Fold cream cheese and Oreo crumbs together in a large bowl.

4. Roll Oreo and cream cheese mixture into balls, about 1 ½ inches in diameter. Place each one on your lined baking sheet.

5. Use the back of a rounded teaspoon to press an indent in the center of each Oreo truffle.

6. Press along the edge of each truffle, to shape it into a nest. The center cavity/indentation should be about 1 inch in diameter.

7. Chill truffles in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

8. Once time is up, remove truffles from the fridge.

9. Microwave candy melts in 30-second intervals until completely melted.

10. Scoop melted candy into the cavity of each Oreo truffle.

11. Top the truffles off with 2-3 candy eggs each.

12. Chill for an additional 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

These lovely and yummy Oreo truffles for spring are a beautiful addition to your table whether you’re celebrating Easter, a spring or summer birthday, the arrival of spring, or Mother’s Day! I hope you have as much fun making them as you have eating them!
