The Easiest Christmas Baking Recipe

Christmas treats are one of the best things about the holiday season. Between Christmas cookies, candy canes and everything flavoured with mint, it’s easy to indulge and treat yourself to one of the holiday’s best desserts.

 

What isn’t always easy is baking. I don’t consider myself a terrible baker, but the easier the recipe, the better my life will be. Because I love baking for the holidays, there’s one recipe that never fails me: Oreo truffles. I appreciate recipes that don’t include ingredients that are too costly, and this recipe is just that. I love this recipe because it is so quick to make and it’s a huge hit wherever I take them.

 

There are hundreds of variations of this recipe on Pinterest and across the internet, but it is featured specifically on Kraft. The most basic recipe is as follows:

 

Ingredients:

 

1 (8 oz) package of softened cream cheese

 

36 Oreos, crushed

 

4 (4 oz) packages of semi-sweet baking chocolate

 

Preparation:

 

Mix the cream cheese and cookie crumbs until well mixed.

 

Shape the mix into 1 inch balls.

 

Dip the balls into melted chocolate and set onto a baking sheet.

 

Freeze at least an hour, or until firm.

 

That’s it! Other variations include garnishes such as extra cookie crumbs or candy canes, and some include adding some peppermint extract into the mix. No matter what, this recipe will remain easy. It’s handy to hang onto in case you find yourself needed a holiday treat quickly.
