Oreo Truffles – Two Ways

I originally shared these 3 years ago but they are one of my favorite treats especially around Christmas time so I decided to update things and share it again – in case you’ve missed out.

If you haven’t tried them yet then yes you are totally missing out! They only require a few basic ingredients (only 3 if you are making the original version and 5 for the peppermint!) and they are so incredibly easy to make!

I’ve shared step-by-step photos below so you can see just how easy they are to make.

Top Tip: If you don’t have a food processor you can crush the Oreos to crumbs in a gallon size resealable bag with a rolling pin.

These are one of the treats I’m making this year to give to friends because I don’t have a lot of time to make something too detailed, plus these are always a win anywhere I take them.

People go crazy over these and they are always one of the first things to go at parties. I mean how could you go wrong with Oreos, cream cheese and chocolate – and at Christmas time some peppermint? Yeah, you just can’t.

If you’ve never made truffles before or dipped candies in chocolate this is a great place to start! The recipe is so straight forward and like I said it requires minimal ingredients. Once you try these you’ll be hooked! I know I am for life!

How To Make Oreo Truffles

Place 36 Oreos in a food processor (entire cookie, don’t remove cream filling) and pulse too fine crumbs (alternately if you don’t own a food processor you can place Oreos in a large resealable bag, seal bag and crush with a rolling pin until finely crushed).

Pour crushed Oreos into the bowl of a stand mixer along with cream cheese and mix on low speed until well combined (alternately you can use a mixing bowl and a spoon to mix together)

Scoop mixture out about 1 Tbsp at a time and form into 1 inch balls then align on prepared cookie sheet. Place truffles in freezer for 15 minutes. Meanwhile crush remaining 3 Oreos.

  • Amanda: Okay, I have a crazy question. I want to convert this to a key lime truffle using the Trader Joe’s Key Lime Tea Cookies. I think it would be fairly simple to do, but I’m wondering your thoughts on adjusting the amounts since I’d lose the cream filling of the Oreos. Do I change the ratio of cookie to cream cheese at all? I know this is a crazy question, but your recipes are all excellent and fail-proof! July 17, 2018 at 9:10am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I wish I could tell you! Without testing I can’t say for sure, they sound delicious though! August 2, 2018 at 5:17pm Reply

  • Maribeth: My girlfriend makes them with lemon Oreo’s dipped in white chocolate and then sprinkles crushed Lemonhead candies on them. That is my favorite variation!! January 18, 2018 at 8:12pm Reply

  • Fsoj: This is amazing! Mine didn’t look as pretty, but they tasted wonderful. Super easy to make. I did plain chocolate but will try peppermint next time. January 1, 2018 at 2:36pm Reply

  • Chris D.: Does anyone find that when making truffles they have to wait for the truffles to set & then go back and add chocolate to the bottoms because some of it comes off after dipping & removing it from a fork? I have to do this with any kind of truffle/balls. I even use toothpicks to take the truffles off the fork. It’s not a problem, but adds a little extra time. December 30, 2017 at 11:24am Reply

  • Melissa: Can I freeze the balls until the morning and then coat them with chocolate? December 21, 2017 at 5:35pm Reply

  • Joy: If you have a Walmart in your area, they have their own brand of Almond Chocolate bark flavored coating . The directions are right on the package for melting and tips for coating . It is a big thick 16.8 oz. bar of chocolate. December 15, 2017 at 7:03am Reply
