10-Minute "Pick Your Flavor" Easter Truffles Recipe

Easter Truffles Recipe in Various FlavorsThese Easter truffles are ridiculously easy, are seriously cute, and taste divine. Shaped into cute little Easter eggs and rolled in colored sugar or sprinkles (your choice!), they make quite an impression with little effort. Even better, they're totally kid friendly, so you can get lots of help in the kitchen if you want it.

This Easter candy recipe, which makes about 3 dozen 1 1/2" truffle eggs, originally called for white chocolate chips and vanilla frosting to make elegant little white eggs. But the sky's the limit! Any combination of frosting and chips will taste divine. Try mint chocolate chips with chocolate frosting, or peanut butter chips with strawberry frosting, or even butterscotch chips with caramel-flavored frosting. Then roll them in your choice of garnish: colored or powdered sugar, cocoa powder, flaked coconut, finely chopped nuts, whatever you like.

These cute little Easter eggs look great decorating a platter with an Easter Bunny Cake!

Oreo Ball Eggs Easter Candy Recipe

Oreo Ball Easter Eggs Candies RecipeThese little Oreo eggs are just too easy-- and they taste incredible. If your family loves Oreo cookies, there's no way you can go wrong with this Easter candy recipe. The original recipe made simple truffles with a white and dark chocolate coating. But for Easter, we shape them into cute little eggs instead of balls, and add pastel-colored white chocolate to the outside. Easy, cute, and impressive. Plus, they're adaptable to any holiday-- make red and green versions for Christmas or black and orange ones for Halloween. Have fun with it.

Recipe makes about 30 eggs, depending on size.

Ingredients:
1 (1 lb.) pkg. Oreo cookies (don't use double-stuffed)
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, at room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
16 oz. white chocolate almond bark
Food coloring of your choice, as needed (optional)

Instructions: 1. Break Oreos slightly and add them, cream and all, to a food processor or blender.

2. Grind until Oreo crumbs resemble something like coarse coffee grinds.

3. Dump Oreo crumbs into a bowl and add cream cheese and vanilla.

4. With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat Oreo mixture until well mixed. You can also do this by hand.

5. Cover and refrigerate about 45 minutes to an hour.

6. With your hands, shape into small eggs (about 1 1/2" long). Place eggs on waxed paper and refrigerate another hour.

7. When ready to dip, melt your white chocolate bark. Add food coloring if and as desired (see note below for some great decorating ideas).

8. Spear each Oreo egg with a toothpick and dip in white chocolate. Allow the excess to drip away. Place gently on waxed paper.

9. Let sit 15-20 minutes to set. Decorate with drizzled chocolate as desired. Cover and store in the refrigerator until ready to eat. They taste even better the next day!

Decorating idea: Pastel colors work best for Easter candy recipes, of course, so go easy on the food coloring if you use it. These Oreo Easter eggs look great made in solid pastel colors, or dipped in plain white and drizzled with pastel colored white chocolate.

To drizzle colored chocolate, simply scoop melted, colored chocolate into a sandwich baggie, cut a tiny hole in the corner, and drizzle away. Don't start drizzling until the first coat of chocolate is mostly set, though.
