Want to make something special for Valentines Day? Making these truffles can be done so quickly you can even do it the night before. They are super easy!

 2 Easy Last MinuteTruffle Recipes (Oreo + Fruitcake)

First up: Mini Fruitcake Truffles

– 1oz (or 6 squares) chocolate chips 
– 1c fruitcake
– 2 tablespoons orange liqueur (optional)
– sprinkles / sugar / cocoa powder as decoration
– 3 tablespoons butter 


1. Chop chocolate into small pieces. In saucepan over very low heat, melt chocolate and butter until blended and smooth.
2. Stir in orange liqueur and fruitcake crumbs; chill for 2 hours or until firm.
3. Shape into 1 inch balls and chill at least 20 minutes. Before serving, roll in icing sugar or coca powder and chill for 20 minutes.

Next up: Oreo Truffles

Y’all know and love the humble Oreo. But if you blend two packets of them (approx 40 oreos) with a packet of cream cheese (200g) and cover in melted chocolate, you reach heaven!




– 2 (8oz packages) baking chocolate / melted
– 1 (8oz package) cream cheese / softened
– 1 pack Oreos


1. Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor; reserve for later use. (Cookies can also be finely crushed in a resealable plastic bag using a rolling pin.) Crush remaining 36 cookies to fine crumbs; place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mix until well blended. Roll cookie mixture into 42 balls, about 1-inch in diameter.
2. Dip balls in chocolate; place on wax paper-covered baking sheet. (Any leftover chocolate can be stored at room temperature for another use.) Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs.
3. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator.
They are prefect for holidays and special occasions because you can also decorate with colored sugar.  Just sprinkle on top (about 3 tablespoons of sugar to one drop of color
and shake in a ziplock bag) 

Truffles definitely will have your friends
and fam thinking you went to a lot of trouble, and make a nice touch for any occasion.
