Oreo Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles

I often joke that I’m a walking advertisement for Costco because I’m always gushing about my latest find or fabulous deal. From their cute greeting cards to their juicy sweet fresh strawberries – I love it all! In fact, I’ve talked about Costco in eleven posts already, and this mention makes it number twelve! When I noticed the Costco Connection magazine features member recipes, I sent in two of my own and look what they published this month! Apparently my Costco karma has come full circle!

To celebrate, I decided to combine two of my favorite things – eggless cookie dough and Oreos. I whipped up a batch of my peanut butter cookie dough and mixed in some leftover Oreos. Then I rolled the dough into truffles and coated the outside of each one in more crushed cookies. Just writing this post is actually making me crave one of these little guys – they are so yummy and completely addicting! The best part is that they are the perfect treat to make on a hot summer day when you don’t want to turn on the oven.

    I want these little balls. Yum! 😀

  4. Congrats on the spot in the Costco paper. Full circle would mean they’re paying you. 😉
    The truffles look killer. Do you think they’d freeze well? I’m trying to make lots of treats (ahead of time) for a family reunion coming up.

  7. Ha! I was coming over here to tell you that I just saw this in the COstco Connection today! woot!

    In fact, I was at aork and my boss had clipped this recipe and it was sitting on the kitchen counter. I thought it was Rachael Ray and I picked it up and read it and saw it was you and said “hey I know her!”

    You’re just too cool for words :-) Oh and I LOVE Costco too.

  8. that’s definitely cause for celebration–congrats! and what a way to honor the occasion–these couldn’t be more delectable. the end. :)

  9. Congratulations, Kerstin! The oreo truffles look delicious…chocolate & peanut butter is my kind of dessert.

    I’m getting married in a week and wondered if you had any great, classic recipes to whip up for my future husband. I love to bake and he loves to cook, but I want to surprise my new hubby with a delicious dinner! You have so many unique recipes, I thought I’d ask your opinion!

  10. That’s awesome!! I love that they put a big photo of you too :) My sister makes some fabulous Oreo truffles, but adding peanut butter to the mix? Best idea ever!!

  11. CONGRATS! I was reading your blog and just happend to have the costco connection next to me. I see your recipe! Awesome! :) I also LOVE costco and buy the salmon all the time. I actually have it in my fridge right now. Did you just send the recipe to the connection? I’d love to give some of my recipes a try for print.

  12. Those sound evil! But only 82 calories evil? I can handle that :) I think I’ve had something similar, just made with cream cheese. I’ll have to make these!

  13. Oh my gosh – it’s so cool that you are in the Costco magazine! You are famous!

    I always love your truffles. My sister just got engaged and wants to use some of your truffles as her wedding favors!

  14. I made these truffles because I had oodles of oreos and the ingredients lying around. They are AMAZING. I shared them with my neighbors and their kids and they went wild. I could only eat one myself because I am a diabetic, but soooo tasty. I have to say though, they don’t look too good before you roll them in the oreo crumbs. XD But a wonderful recipe! Thank you!
