Broke Girl Truffles: just because you're broke doesn't mean you can't be luxurious.

Just because you’re broke doesn’t mean you can’t be luxurious. Case in point: Broke Girl Truffles.

These truffles have only 3 ingredients, and they’re all cheap cheap cheap. All you need is a box of oreos, some cream cheese, and 1 cup of chocolate chips. Et voila, you can be fabulous. 

Broke Girl Truffles: just because you're broke doesn't mean you can't be luxurious.

I used to make these truffles in college when I couldn’t afford to buy high-quality chocolate, but still wanted something special. My friends went crazy for them, and I felt like a regular Martha Stewart.

I garnished these babes with rose hips, which you can get in the Whole Foods bulk section for literally $0.50 because they basically weigh nothing. But you can also garnish them with just oreo crumbles, or nothing at all.

These also hold up well in the fridge as long as you keep them in an air-tight container. Which means you can ration them for weeks. Heheh.

I’m off to Chicago for the week to visit my bestie Ambitious Kitchen. We have a pretty full itinerary, but if you guys have recommendations for places we need to eat at, let me know in the comments below!

Love you all and hope you have a fantastic rest of your week!

Broke Girl Truffles
 
Author:
Serves: 20 truffles
Ingredients
  • 17 oreo cookies
  • 6 oz cream cheese, softened
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • dried rose hips
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, pulse oreos until they resemble a fine powder. Add in cream cheese and salt and pulse until mixture is homogenous.
  2. Scoop rounded tablespoons of truffle into your hand and roll into a ball. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. In a microwave-save bowl, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave in 20 second increments until melted.
  4. Use a large fork like a spatula to scoop each truffle and dip into the melted chocolate. Tap the fork gently against the side of the bowl so that any extra chocolate drips back into the bowl. Place each truffle back on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. Sprinkle with dried rose hips and more oreo crumbles. Place back in fridge until fully hardened, about 30 minutes.

Not sure what rose hips are, where I can find them. How much do they add to the taste? Can I omit? Made truffles 4 the first time last week. Theyre easy but impress folks!

they’re used as a tea. You don’t have to garnish with them, as they don’t add a ton of flavor. Sometimes I use freeze dried raspberry and pulverize it to a powder…you can find them at target or natural foods stores.

Thanks!

Yay! you’re in my city! I would say it’s the best food city in the country, but considering you live in Nyc, you may disagree. i’m sure monique will hook you up with some awesome eats! i’m a huge fan of CRAFT pizza in wicker park, and Bullhead cantina in Humboldt park. west town bakery is great for brunch and giant delicious pastries! Have fun!

You so got me! These look super super fancy and like they require a million different steps and tempered chocolate and seven ganaches, but they’re made with oreos and cream cheese- love it!

Hello! I NEED SOME HELP. should I put a whole oreo cookie? or is it just the cookie with no cream?

Sarah | Broma Bakery

It’s the entire cookie, cream included!
