I am positive that some of you would relate to this! Lived in one city since birth and then moved to another continent altogether. This means, starting your life afresh all over again in a totally new place where everything is different from your hometown. As you adjust to the new life, you still miss your hometown, make new friends but still miss your childhood buddies and even though you have the world cuisine in front of you, you still miss your city’s street food. Such is the power of childhood memories and your hometown.
But this new place which is now my world, is great too. I have made some wonderful new friends here, American and Indian. Apart from Indian festivals, I have also been attending Non Indian parties. There was a house party at one of our friend who is an amazing cook. They love Indian food so she had asked me to get something traditional for everyone. I chose to make Dill ke Pakode/Dill Croquettes for appetizer along with Coriander Mint Chutney. It was an instant hit. I had intentionally kept the spice levels low to appease the Non Indian crowd. While other guests were enjoying this Indian bhajia, I was gorging on these Oreo Bites. These were made by my friend’s mom. I have had Oreo biscuits before but these were something else.
I immediately took down the recipe from her and made a mental note to myself to make these gorgeous bites the very same weekend. It was my friend’s baby shower that week and what better dessert to serve than this! The main thing that attracted me to this recipe was that there was no baking involved. It is so simple that even children can make it and would enjoy making it. You just need 4 ingredients in this recipe which really makes it a go-to dessert recipe.
Keep aside few Oreo cookies for snacking and crush the remaining cookies in a food processor. Add cream cheese to it and process it till the mixture begins to hold together. Scoop it out into a bowl. Line a cookie tray with parchment paper. Make small balls and place them on the tray. Freeze this for at-least an hour.
Melt white chocolate chips as per pack instructions. Dip these Oreo balls in it and coat evenly. Freeze this for 30 minutes. Drizzle chocolate sauce over it and freeze again for 30 more minutes.
Serve chilled. They are delicious! No Bake Oreo Truffles can really be renamed as small bites of heaven.
People went crazy over this dessert at the baby shower. It was all gone in seconds. I made this recipe a couple of more times – Holi party at our place and for my husband’s office potluck. On both these occasions, they were very well appreciated. That is this thing about Oreo cookies, everyone loves them and recipes with it are a no fail recipe. Kids at the party kept coming to the table for more and I couldn’t be more happier.
