I always love it when I’m reminded of an easy holiday recipe. Oreo Truffles have been around for years, posted all over the internet, and even on my blog a few years ago. But it’s good to bring them out of the archives, because this is a very easy, fantastic Valentine’s treat! And along with making these with our kids, since Valentine’s Day is two weeks from today, we can share tidbits of some valuable life lessons.

3-Ingredient Oreo Truffles

Imperfect is good
This recipe is so EASY for kids to make, in that they can use their own creativity by adding different flavors and decorations. My daughter, Abby, and I had to remind ourselves that how they turn out is not about perfection. I didn’t stand over her to see if they turned out perfectly round, or if they were dipped exactly right. She had success in making them her own (even though it got a little messy)!

Teaching our kids that imperfect is okay, is a great life lesson for them to learn at a young age!

Make and give away
What a delicious tasty treat to give away to teachers, grandparents or even neighbors. Make, decorate, package up and give away.

Random acts of kindness are other ways we can illustrate for our kids our love for the people around us. Learning this art of giving will change the way our kids act and think as adults.

Mix cream cheese and crushed (fine crumbs) Oreo cookies together.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls, putting on wax or parchment paper.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Dip balls, using toothpicks or a spoon, into melted chocolate (use double broiler or microwave on 50%).

Refrigerate another 30 minutes until chocolate hardens.

I think we’ll be sharing this tasty LOVE with others by passing some out ourselves this year.

When’s the last time you thought of a valuable “life lesson” to share with your kids, grandkids, neighbor kids, or nieces and nephews in the kitchen?
