Ingredients

  • 6 thin sandwich cookies- Oreo(of your choice)
  • 4 tsp creamy peanut butter

Garnishing

  • 4 to 5 tbsp Chocolate ganache (or melted chocolate)
  • 1 sandwich cookie- Oreo, coarsely crushed without the cream.
  • 3 candy eyeballs

Instructions

These no bake monster truffles are very easy to make, they require very few ingredients and can be ready in 5 minutes but it is preferable to let them chill to keep their forms.

  1. First open the Oreo sandwich and scrap out the cream.
  2. Put the Oreo cookies in a ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin or simply blend then in a blender until they are ground up into fine crumbs.
  3. Put the Oreo crumbs in a bowl and add in peanut butter, one spoon at the time. It's imperative to use hands to feel the Oreo mixture, it may not need 4 teaspoons of peanut butter.

  4. Once the mixture is well combined and hold itself, form walnut size balls.
  5. Chill the Oreo balls for about 10 minutes in the fridge.
  6.  Dip the balls in a slightly warm chocolate ganache until they are well coated, let cool for about 5 minutes.
  7. Place the candy eyeball in each Oreo ball.
  8. Sprinkle crushed Oreo cookies on top of each ball.
  9. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
  10. Boo….enjoy!
