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. 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! Merry Christmas everyone!

Oreo Truffles

4.67 from 3 votes

Yield: About 36 truffles


  • 36 Oreos , divided (original not doublestuf), plus 3 more for topping if desired
  • 1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 16 oz . almond bark or candy melts , or melted white chocolate, milk chocolate or dark chocolate
  • See notes for peppermint variation


  1. Set a long sheet of wax paper over a cookie sheet, set aside. 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.
  2. Melt almond bark or chocolate according to directions on package. Remove truffles from freezer and dip in melted chocolate and use a spoon to pour some chocolate over the top then lift and allow excess chocolate to run off (I barely made it with 16 oz. of the melted bark but you may need a little more). Return to baking sheet, immediately sprinkle tops with remaining crushed Oreos then allow chocolate to set. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

For the peppermint version simply mix 1 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract with the cream cheese in a stand mixer first, then add the Oreo crumbs and continue as directed. Dip chocolates then immediately sprinkle tops with peppermint bits crushed candy canes or crushed starlight mints (instead of more crushed Oreos).

    • Jaclyn: I’d maybe try freezing them a little longer before dipping (maybe 5 – 10 more minutes) and also you could even let the almond bark cool a little bit after microwaving, the almond bark consistency is sometimes thin so it helps to let it cool a little. Also I found the method that worked best for me was to set the oreo ball on a fork then set the fork in the chocolate and spoon more of the chocolate over the top and let some of it run off then I used a butter knife to slide it off of the fork and onto the lined cookie sheet. I hope that helps! December 15, 2012 at 1:59pm Reply

    • Anonymous: If you have little fondue forks try those for dipping-they are easier to cover the holes up! Didnt know they made white ghiradelli…they are awesome! December 16, 2012 at 2:49pm Reply

  • Anonymous: I bought double stuffed for this recipe. (Bought before I seen your recipe!!) Why do you say NOT to use double stuffed?? December 18, 2012 at 6:41pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Because it would change the consistency/texture of the Oreo truffle portion. You’d be okay to use double stuff, but I would say you’ll probably only want to add about 4 – 5 oz of the cream cheese so it’s not too soft. December 18, 2012 at 9:16pm Reply

    • Mary: And because Double Stuff don’t have as many cookies. December 21, 2012 at 8:19pm Reply

  • Marissa: I can’t wait to make these! However I plan to make them today and bring them to family tomorrow for Christmas Eve. This might be a silly question, but how do you recommend storing them? After I make them should I refrigerate or freeze them until we leave? (We also have a 2 hour commute to family) thanks :) December 23, 2012 at 12:30pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Marissa – not a silly question at all, I like to store mine in the fridge but I know many people just store them at room temperature so either way should be just fine. I actually saw them at the chocolate shop I was shopping at yesterday and they just left theirs out at room temp. Happy Holidays! December 23, 2012 at 3:11pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: These would be perfect for a gift basket in my opinion, I’m yet to meet someone who doesn’t love these things =). I personally recommend storing them in the refrigerator because of the cream cheese in them but I saw them sitting out at room temperature at the local candy shop so you might be fine keeping them at room temperature.

  • Angelica: These are delicious!! Just a tip: I’ve made these before, and its much easier to just throw the cream cheese in the food processor after you crush the Oreos. If you have one of course :) August 30, 2013 at 9:47pm Reply

  • Cheryl: I have made these before and they were a huge hit. Here’s a tip … When you dip the truffle in the chocolate, I find it is easiest to remove them using a plastic fork with the two middle tines broken out. That way the chocolate drips off and you can scoop them up quite easily without poking a hole in them. August 31, 2013 at 5:13pm Reply

  • Trina: According to another site, each one of these has 115 calories, 13 grams of carbs/sugars and 7 g of fat. At our house, we have a problem with self-control when there are delicious things calling to us from the kitchen. Do you think the consistency of the truffle would suffer if I used lower fat cream cheese and didn’t put ALL of the cookie filling in? Have any of you ever experimented? September 7, 2013 at 9:17pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I wouldn’t recommend the lighter cream cheese as it probably would alter the consistency, what you may want to try is replacing some of the Oreos with a healthier alternative such as Newman’s O’s. September 14, 2013 at 8:43pm Reply

      • mel: I just made then using Neufchatel Cheese aka lower fat cream cheese and they turned out great.

        One more question though… Can you freeze them before you dip them in chocolate? December 4, 2013 at 8:57pm Reply

        • Jaclyn: I think freezing them then would be just fine, I would let them thaw a bit before dipping though. December 5, 2013 at 4:36pm Reply

  • Yasir: Based on the recipe for the original not the peppermint ones how many truffles would it make?

  • Kristen R.: I have made these so many times and everyone always loves them! Here are some alternate versions:
    *Strawberry flavoring in the white chocolate with either regular or golden Oreos. Both are delish!
    *mint Oreos with milk chocolate coating
    *strawberry or raspberry flavoring in the white chocolate coating with lemon Oreos (seasonal)
    Also, I have used reduced fat cream cheese and haven’t had any consistency issues. Your pictures make these treats look wonderful! If you make them for a party, beware that you will have to bring them for the rest of your life! November 13, 2013 at 6:46pm Reply

  • Tiffany Finley: I have made these before with my daughter and they are wonderful. My question however is, how do you get the chocolate to be so smooth on the outside. We always end up with lumpy chocolate coating. It seems that the milk chocolate melts smoother than the white and I’ve used almond bark and candy coating with the same results. December 23, 2013 at 11:44am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I think part if it is making sure your truffles are cold enough before dipping so they don’t start to break up and crumble into the chocolate. Also, be sure to melt the white chocolate in small intervals and even use a lower power like 40 or 50% because the white burns easier than the milk chocolate. Hope that helps!

  • Nikki: From the perspective of a chef on the fridge freezer subject, (I was browsing online for variations on this recipe, always lookin for a better mouse trap) the problem with freezing/refrigerating anything dipped in chocolate is when you take it out of the freezer/refrigerator condensation collects on the surface and causes the chocolate to “bloom” which is more obvious on milk or dark chocolate. Blooming is what happens when chocolate is exposed to humidity and water. Have you ever seen chocolate you may have had in your house for too long get cloudy white paisley film on it? That’s called blooming. It’s not good and for the most part it is a cosmetic thing but it makes the chocolate taste stale. I understand that people are concerned with refrigerating the cream cheese, but it’s not necessary. For people who want to put them in cookie assortments or tins, bring them to a party the next day, I wouldn’t refrigerate them. If you want to keep them all for yourself and you are going to eat them out of the fridge go for it they won’t have any time to bloom. December 16, 2014 at 5:33pm Reply

They are so rich and “truffley.” I had no idea they had cream cheese in them (but that explains partly why they are so so good). I got some weirdo cold/flu the week after Thanksgiving that knocked me down and lasted until after Christmas. So, I didn’t get any of my normal Christmas stuff done. I am now in the mood to do Christmas and these are on my list. Yesterday my local grocery store had “Halloween” Oreos (chocolate with orange-colored filling) marked down for 50 cents a package. I will make these this week. YumYum! January 5, 2016 at 2:31am Reply

    • Jeanne: I generally add about a tablespoon of vegetable oil to the chocolate while it melts because It lets chocolate coat smoothly and is not too thick. I use a wooden skewer stuck into the truffle, dunk it with my left hand. Then I pull it out and rest it on a two-tined meat fork in my right hand. Pull out the skewer and slid the truffle onto waxed paper. Voila! Simple and quick. I have also made the truffles with nutterbutter cookies. September 14, 2016 at 3:03pm Reply

  • Marilyn: Has anyone tried adding a little Kahlua or Baily’s? Would it change the consistency too much? November 3, 2016 at 1:23pm Reply

  • Chris: I want to make these a head a time for a party. Do you think I could freeze the balls a few weeks before the party and then take them out the night before and add the chocolate? Wasn’t sure if freezing the Oreos and cream cheese mixture that long would affect them in anyway. November 9, 2016 at 4:24pm Reply

  • Marie-Anne Duarte: Hello Your recipe looks gorgeous! Thank you. I can’t wait to try it. I love making truffles.

    • Jaclyn: They are also labeled chocolate melts or candy melts. They are a type of chocolate (not pure chocolate) that melts well and hardens well. You could substitute white chocolate it just tends to be thicker and a little harder to work with. November 14, 2016 at 1:35pm Reply

  • Linda: I use mint Oreos and mint melts for dipping balls in. I also make with original Oreos with colored melts-white, red, green. November 18, 2016 at 7:31am Reply

  • Michele: Has anyone used mini candy canes to dip them and then leave them in? December 1, 2016 at 6:31am Reply

  • NRS: These look so yummy! Can’t wait to make them! For the non-peppermint version, do you prefer white or dark chocolate for dipping? May only have time to try one. Also, what size portion scoop would you recommend? #60 or #70 (one slightly larger than 1T and one slightly smaller). Thanks for all of your great recipes!!! December 4, 2016 at 10:01am Reply

    • Jaclyn: If you only have time to try the one I’d go with the white chocolate. Its my favorite version. And I’m sorry I don’t know exactly which number, just whichever makes a 1-inch ball. December 6, 2016 at 10:28pm Reply

      • NRS: Thanks Jaclyn! December 7, 2016 at 8:42am Reply

  • Lauren: Can these be shipped? December 6, 2016 at 8:37pm Reply

  • SKC: Hi,
    I found the chocolate really thick and hard to cover theh balls without being really thick and then pieces of the balls would break off. Any tips on thinning or what I am going wrong? December 13, 2016 at 3:26pm Reply


  • Belle: Tried them and LOVE them. Did two batches—one regular and one with peanut butter Oreos instead. They’re both amazing and I would definitely recommend this recipe to anyone who loves chocolate. Yum! December 23, 2016 at 8:59pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Thanks for the great review Belle! January 3, 2017 at 11:41am Reply

  • Natalie: What can I use instead of cream cheese? Can I use condensed milk? Thanks. (Give other suggestions if you have) January 18, 2017 at 8:18pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Sorry there isn’t a good substitute that I know of for the cream cheese. Neufchatel cheese will be too runny here as well as mascarpone. January 19, 2017 at 9:28pm Reply

  • Kellie: Has anyone ever tried these with peanut butter oreos? March 22, 2017 at 2:14pm Reply

    • Chris D.: What a great idea! I love peanut butter. December 30, 2017 at 11:20am 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

  • Ann: Easy, delicious, favorite of children, teens and adults! December 19, 2017 at 9:57am Reply

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

  • 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

  • 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
