As you may know, for the past couple years, Oreo has been cranking out some delightfully wacky new flavors every couple months. From Candy Corn to Gingerbread, Watermelon to Banana Split, Oreo’s flavor PR team must be working overtime for the newest and greatest flavor!
And Oreo PR team? Can I please come work for you? Will work for Oreos — please. I have some ideas for y’all.
After this summer’s hugely popular Rice Krispy Treat and Cookie Dough Oreos, I wondered if Oreo could possibly top their grandest flavors yet. And then back to school happened — and shortly thereafter, Caramel Apple Oreos happened. And oh, did they happen.
I went to Target (where they’re exclusively sold) THREE TIMES in one day hoping I’d find them. Once I saw that glorious yellow package, I tossed as many packages as I could in my cart and checked in to cookied-out heaven. I knew exactly what I wanted to make with these bad boys: Oreo Truffles of course!
Soft and chewy Oreo Truffles flavored just like a gooey, sweet-tart caramel apple, coated in a sweet cinnamon & vanilla CandiQuik and topped with crushed Apple Jacks, for added crunch, color & that cinnamon-apple flavor. Genius and delicious — and I’m not just talking about me. (I’m sorry)
You guys oughta hunt down your nearest Target for a box because while they’re seriously, insanely deliciously addictive, they’re a limited time (eek!) and will probably be a ghost of Oreo past come Halloween, so stock up and make these truffles STAT!!
- 1 pkg Caramel Apple Golden Oreos, finely crushed
- 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 pkg (16 oz) Vanilla CandiQuik
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ cup Apple Jacks cereal, coarsely crushed
- Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, stir together the Caramel Apple Oreo crumbs & the cream cheese until all of the cream cheese is blended into the crumbs, creating a soft and tacky dough.
- Roll the dough into small balls using a cookie dough scoop. Even out the balls by rolling them gently in your hands, then place them onto the baking sheet. You'll get roughly 15.
- Freeze the truffles for about an hour, or until firm. Once firm, prepare the CandiQuik according to package directions until smooth & melted. Stir in the ground cinnamon.
- Dip each truffle into the cinnamon-CandiQuik mixture, allowing excess chocolate to drip off. Return the truffle to the baking sheet and immediately top with a sprinkling of crushed Apple Jacks cereal. Repeat with remaining truffles.
I love how fun & festive these fall-inspired Oreo Truffles are! They really take your basic chocolate truffle to the next level with that spot-on caramel apple flavor — it’s like fall in a petite, chewy truffle with the delightfully crunchy addition of cinnamon-y Apple Jacks cereal sprinkled on top. These are a can’t-miss in my book!!
Have a delicious day!
