Ohhh yes. Moving right from those super healthy, nutrient packed Quinoa Power Bowls to these. Red. Velvet. Oreo. Truffles. Have you spotted Red Velvet Oreos at your grocery store yet? I looked high and low and *finally* found them on an end aisle display at Target. Not with all the other Oreos in the cookie aisle. Right by where you check out, where they put the stuff that you don't need but you see right at the end and HAVE TO HAVE IT. Which is exactly what these Red Velvet Oreos are. We might not need them, but we definitely must have them.
I mean, how else are you going to make these Red Velvet Oreo truffles? Oh and you might be wondering - do they really taste like red velvet? I did a little "research" before throwin' 'em all in the food processor to be pulverized for truffles, and I have to say - they are pret-ty darn close. Well done, Oreo. Well. Done.
So yeah. These are just like the other Oreo truffle recipes I have, except made with the Red Velvet Oreos. BUT! Since they come in a different size package than the regular Oreos, I did the math for you and altered the cream cheese measurement. More importantly, I drizzled dark chocolate on them and added Valentine's colored sprinkles. Yer welcome.
'Cause c'mon. How perfect are these for Valentine's Day?! Festive sprinkles on the outside and a surprising red filling. Plus, they are so, so good. The addition of the cream cheese to the cookies only brings out the red velvet flavor more, imitating the typical cream cheese frosting that goes on top. They are also easy as can be because one: they're no bake. And two: I found this awesome Truffle Dipping Tutorial from Something Swanky. She suggests freezing the truffles for 30 minutes before dipping them in melted chocolate, and also using a toothpick while dipping. Life changing.

Oh and p.s. I got a little carried away with baking this weekend, so it's officially Valentine's Dessert Week! Come back Wednesday for chocolate on more chocolate. It's gonna be good!
