The only better than Oreos? Red Velvet Oreos. Show your sweet side with these Red Velvet Oreo Truffles. EASY!
Last weekend I shared a few quick ideas for Valentine’s Day you can do with the Fox Good Day. There were several cute ideas, but the one that stood out and has led to several text messages and Facebook emails is this recipe for Red Velvet Oreo Truffles.
In just three steps, I created these little monsters that I’m sure are the reason I only lost two pounds this week. Nevertheless, they were worth every bite I managed to get into my mouth. As always I had posted this ridiculously cheap recipe to the blog, but the texts just kept coming.
” Where did you your Oreos?” came in streams for about four days as people were in a mad dash to find these limited edition little red devils.
Market Street! Market Street! Market Street! has had them in store since Feb. 4, but will only have them in for a short amount of time.
With cream cheese and the rich taste of red velvet sandwiched in two chocolate wafers, I knew exactly why people were looking for these like buried treasure. In a way, they kinda are…
While already perfect as an Oreo, once you add cream cheese and cover it in chocolate, it is almost overwhelming. So my suggestion is buy two packages…one to eat while you make the truffles with the other bag. Then eat five truffles, box them up and give them to someone else you never see or talk to. If you don’t heed my advice, you’ll eat them all right then and there. And there’s no need to gain a few pounds in one sitting of Red Velvet Oreos.
This recipe is PERFECT for a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift from the kids or something festive to do on Valentine’s Day. So make sure you snag those Red Velvet Oreos at Market Street and while you’re there, you can also snag what you need for a Heart Day dinner with prime rib, chocolate covered strawberries as well as a bottle wine to enjoy after the kids go to bed!
Adapted from the original Nabisco Oreo Cookie Ball recipe, MamaChallenge makes them even better with the limited-edition Red Vevet cake balls.
- 1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
- 40 Red Velvet OREO Cookies, finely crushed, divided

Happy Valentine’s Day!
