Oreo Truffle Pops

I made Oreo Truffle Pops that are dipped in chocolate and covered with sprinkles for a celebration.  Oh yeah, I know how to party!  What is the occasion?  One year ago today I published my first post here on WonkyWonderful.  My little baby blog is turning one year old!

One year ago, I had been battling a case of insomnia for several months.  In those months I had spent my late nights learning how to crochet and I had also discovered the awesomeness of Pinterest.  Before then I had absolutely no idea what a blog was.  I thought blogs were online diaries that people used to share their feelings.  It wasn’t until I realized that all of those amazing recipes, crafts and projects on Pinterest were created by bloggers!

I Was Hooked!

So on a whim I decided to start my own blog . . . and I haven’t had a full night’s sleep since!

WonkyWonderful began as a craft, crochet and recipe blog.  I soon realized that I am an extremely slow crocheter and well, I’m not very good at crafts.  Luckily I also discovered my love for developing recipes, something that I had never before attempted.  And as they say, the rest is history.

I’ve met so many extraordinary people that share my passion for food and creativity.  I appreciate all of you that have supported WonkyWonderful this past year either by commenting, following or just taking the time to read my posts.  Thank You!  Mostly, I am so very thankful that I had that extreme case of insomnia a little over a year ago.  Who would’ve thought that a little insomnia would make such a big difference in my life!?!

When I began to ponder what type of blogiversary treat I should make, the obvious option was a gorgeous triple layer cake that was dripping with decadent chocolate ganache.  But, then I remembered that I am absolutely terrible at making cakes.  I mean, they taste great but are UGLY!  I don’t have the patience or the time to fuss with a cake for hours trying to make it purdy. 

So I decided to brainstorm ingredients.  Besides cake what would I want to eat during my celebratory binge-fest?  OREOS!  I rarely buy Oreos because it is so easy to devour an entire package within a few days.  I made these FlufferNutter Truffles a while back and had planned to eventually make another simple truffle.  So I decided to make Oreo Truffles made with Birthday Cake Oreos, of course.  And it ain’t a party without SPRINKLES!

Oreos

One last thing before we get to those super tasty Oreo Truffle Pops.  Due to technical difficulties my last recipe post was never sent out to all of my email subscribers.  Apparently the universe didn’t think that people were ready for my Chocolate Beet Cupcakes.  So be sure to go check it out!  I wouldn’t want anyone to miss out my Nutella Glazed Chocolate Beet Cupcakes!

  13. Nicole, I noticed these make 22 but you’ve taken a bite out of one, you can just send the remaining 21 to me! And I love the pretty colors of your non-pareils. Thanks for sharing at Thursday’s Treasures, I’m featuring you this week!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Thanks so much, Joan! I’m super stoked to be featured! These truffle pops are long gone … I took a bite out of more than just one ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. Jessica says:

    do the truffles need to stay refrigerated since they have cream cheese in them?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Jessica! Yes, definitely keep them refrigerated due to the cream cheese. Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Leslie says:

    I was wondering why the coconut oil? I have seen several recipes, and yours is the only one that calls for it. I’m making the truffles in the shape of footballs for my son’s coaches, thus, they have to be perfect!
    Thanks!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Leslie! I always add a little coconut oil when I am melting chocolate just to create an extra smooth consistency. You can omit the coconut oil if you prefer. Enjoy!
