Timesaving Tips for Best Results
A safe way to melt chocolate is to microwave chocolate chips for 10-15 seconds each time until the chocolate is completely melted. You’ll need to stir with a spatula each time to help the chocolate melt and reduce lumps.
Decorate the dipped truffles as fast as possible because the chocolate that comes in contact with the cold Oreo ball will harden fast, and you need the chocolate melted enough to add the mini Oreo or other decoration on the surface so that it will stick.
If you want to add an extra crunchy texture to the center of your balls, add one Hershey's Cookies 'N' Creme Kiss to the center of the ball. Grab a ball of Oreo dough and press in the center to make a hole in the middle. Then add the Hershey's Cookies 'N' Creme chocolate and manually cover it with the Oreo dough using your hands.
Allow gravity to drain the excess chocolate off each ball before placing it on the baking sheet and adding decorations.
