Halloween Monster Eye Truffle Recipe

Here are the ingredients that you need to compile in order to make these truffles:

  • 1 package (16 ounces) regular Oreos
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) Lavender Candy Melts
  • Light purple sprinkles
  • 18-20 Large Edible eyes
  • Optional: vegetable oil you might want to add some to make the candy melts easier to work with


Here are the instructions that you need to follow to complete these truffles:

  1. For the first step, you need to pulse the full oreos (no need to separate cream from cookie) in a food processor or blender until it is in crumbs. Once it resembles sand, you can start to add the cream cheese.
  2. Using a hand held mixer, beat the Oreos and cream cheese together until well combined. The mixture should be a big mass of batter which isn’t that sticky.
  3. Use a cookie scoop or a spoon to roll the mixture into balls.
  4. For the next step, you need to chill the balls, covered tightly, for an hour in the fridge.
  5. Once the balls are chilled, melt the candy melts according to package directions. (This is technically another ingredient, but you may need a teaspoon (or a few) of vegetable oil to get the chocolate thin enough to dip in. Every chocolate is a little different so if needed, I’ll just add the oil slowly until it coats the oreo truffles well.)
  6. Place a ball on a fork and then spoon the melted chocolate evenly over the ball. Tap the fork holding the ball to remove excess chocolate.
  7. Slide the ball carefully onto parchment paper and immediately (it hardens quickly) press and hold an edible eye into the center.
  8. Sprinkle the sprinkles on top of the ball. Use as much as you want!
  9. Allow the chocolate to dry. Then enjoy these truffles with your friends and family.
