Right now I cannot get enough coconut.   I am normally obsessed with coconut any time of year, but the past few weeks I have gone completely bonkers for the stuff.

Good for me…not so good for my family.  You see, I am really the only one that loves the white stuff.  My hubby likes it too, but he likes the fresh stuff from the actual coconut.  I go for the already shredded stuff in a bag from the store.  Yes, I’m the lazy one in the family.  Or the smartest…because I get to eat coconut faster than he does.  I can be munching on the sweet stuff, and he is still outside with a hammer trying to get through the shell.

I have actually had the idea for these coconut truffles swirling around in my head for a few months.  Boy, am I glad I finally got around to making them.  They are everything I imagined them to be.

The homemade coconut filling is easy to make.  These truffles have shredded coconut and cream of coconut milk to double up on the coconut flavor.  It has just enough coconut to stand out from the Oreo cookies and chocolate.

These truffles really are easy to make.  Start by opening each mini Oreo cookie with a knife.  A small round ball of coconut cream filling goes in between each cookie piece.   Gently press the truffle into melted chocolate and use a spoon to cover all the sides.

Use a fork to lift the truffle from the chocolate bath.  Gently tap the sides of the bowl to get the excess chocolate to drip off.  You can also very carefully drag the truffle bottom along the edge of the bowl, so you do not end up with a chocolate puddle under each truffle.  Place the chocolate covered truffle on a piece of wax paper and let them set.

After all the truffles have been dipped, place the remaining chocolate in a plastic baggie and cut one tip off.  Drizzle over the tops of the truffles in a random criss cross pattern.

Each month, I have fun creating little food packages with die cuts that I receive from We R Memory Keepers and LifeStyle Crafts.

The Petal Container Die Cut was the cutest little package for the Oreo Coconut Cream Truffles.   Their die cuts are so easy to use.  Run it through a die cutting machine and fold along the edges.  A little bit of Sticky Thumb adhesive runner holds everything in place.

    Me, and my bf tried to cut a whole Cococnut in half, with a hacksaw. It worked, though we had to hold it down, to saw it. Anyway, I love to make these treats. can you make them, using mini golden Oreos?
