Oreo Truffles

If I had to pick my FAVORITE store-bought cookie, chocolate Oreos would win every time. They are the best for dunking in a cold glass of milk! {Chocolate chip oatmeal are my favorite homemade cookies…in case you were wondering!}

Anyway, when I found a recipe for Oreo Truffles, I knew they would get rave reviews — for three reasons.

  1. Oreos are the main ingredient
  2. It requires NO baking
  3. It’s nearly fool-proof

Oh, and did I mention they are extremely simple to make and that you can make them ahead and put them in the freezer?

Ingredients:

{print this recipe}

  • 1 package Oreo cookies
  • 1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
  • 2 8oz packages white choc. chips
  • 3 T. semi-sweet choc. chips

Directions:

  • Smash Oreos in a food processor or with a rolling pin and plastic bag.

  • Place Oreo crumbs into your mixer, add softened cream cheese, and mix well.
  • Use a melon baller or Tablespoon to form truffles and place on wax paper.

  • Freeze truffles for around half an hour until balls are firm.

  • Meanwhile, melt white chocolate chips in a microwave bowl on medium power for 30 second increments
  • Dip truffles into white chocolate and freeze again.
  • Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips in a plastic sandwich bag. Cut off a small corner of the bag and drizzle over truffles.

See, I told you they were easy!!

    Thanks Natasha,
    All you have to do to defrost them is just let them sit in the fridge or even at room temperature until they are no longer frozen… pretty simple!

    The oreo truffles are awesome. Our niece made some for us last Christmas. She didn’t tell us what was in them. We just knew they were delicious. Finally, she told us the main ingredient. We couldn’t believe that they were so simple to make. Thanks for sharing all the cute truffle decorating ideas.

    Monette, we usually call them Oreo Balls too…but I thought Oreo Truffles sounded a little nicer for a blog title!
