Key Lime Pie Oreo Cookie Truffle Balls

Key lime pie is one of my absolute favorites. That said, I’m not at all confident in my ability to actually bake one. So, when Oreo rolled out their special edition Key Lime Pie flavor I was all over it.

Even though I can’t bake a passable pie, I can make a mean cookie truffle. These little no-bake treats are super-simple and taste like mini cheesecakes (yay!). In the past I’ve made cotton candy, pumpkin and chocolate pretzel Oreo balls. The key lime variety are possibly my favorites so far. Remember, I said possibly – so you should still check out the other ones.

Here’s What You’ll Need:


·        Graham crackers

·        White chocolate

·        6 oz. cream cheese

·        Green food coloring – or you can mix yellow and blue together if you don’t have green.

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Crush the Oreos in a food processor.

2.     Mix the softened cream cheese with the cookie crumbles. Use your hands to get a good mix.

3.     Roll the mixture into balls.

4.     Pop the balls

into the freezer for at least an hour.

5.     Take the cookies out of the freezer.

6.     Put the graham crackers into the food process and crush them.

7.     Melt the chocolate. I used an easy microwave method – break the chocolate into pieces and microwave it for about one minute (microwaves vary in strength, so you may need more or less time). Be careful, the chocolate and the bowl will be hot. Don’t touch it with your bare hands.

8.     Stir the food coloring in.

9.     Coat the cookie balls with the chocolate. Use a spoon so that you don’t have to touch the hot chocolate.

10.  Sprinkle with the graham crackers.
