Make these easy Oreo Truffles with the kids for a fun holiday treat. They only need a few ingredients and are absolutely foolproof!
Not going to lie, Oreos are definitely a personal weakness of mine.
I don’t usually eat a lot of store-bought treats (apart from ice cream… way too lazy, ahem busy, to make my own on the regular ?), but Oreos?
I can’t stay away if I have them in the house.
Is it a coincidence then that I adore Oreo Truffles. And yes, I do insist on calling them truffles because it makes me feel classy when really I should be embarrassed, ha!
How to Make Oreo Truffles:
How do you crush up Oreos for Oreo balls?
I prefer using a food processor with the blade attachment.
If you have no large kitchen appliances, your best bet is to place the cookies in a ziploc bag and crushing them up with a rolling pin.
What if my Oreo Truffles fall apart?
If your truffles fall apart while rolling, you may need to process the mixture further, until it balls up into a sticky pile of Oreo bliss.
If they fall apart while dipping in chocolate, you’ll need to freeze them for a longer amount of time.
What chocolate is best for coating?
A few great options:
- Ghirardelli’s Melting Wafers
- Wilton’s Candy Melts
- a block of Make Your Own Almond Bark (which is what I mostly use!)
How do you roll Oreo Balls in chocolate?
To be honest, this is kind of the hardest part of this recipe.
I know many people struggle with chocolate dipping, but here’s a pretty foolproof method I figured out:
- Melt the chocolate and have a fork, large spoon and a few toothpicks ready. Place a sheet of baking parchment on a sheet pan next to your melted chocolate.
- Place an Oreo ball on the fork and hold it into the melted chocolate so just the bottom is submerged. Use a spoon to spoon melted chocolate over the truffle. Allow excess to drip off.
- Use the toothpick to gently slide the coated truffle back and forth on the fork to wipe away any excess chocolate from the bottom of the fork.
- Carefully slide the coated truffle off the fork and onto the lined baking sheet.
How long will Oreo Truffles keep in the refrigerator?
Keep them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
If you want to keep them for longer, you can stick them in the freezer fro up to 2 months.
No Bake Oreo Truffles
- 1 package Oreos 36 pieces you can use regular or double stuffed
- 8 ounces brick-style cream cheese IMPORTANT: use 4 ounces if using double stuffed Oreos!
- 8 oz melting chocolate see post for notes on which chocolate to use; will need 16oz if wanting to coat truffles twice
- 2 oz white melting chocolate to decorate (optional)
- Place Oreos and cream cheese in a food processor with the blade attachment and process until completely crushed and starting to ball up.
- Roll mix into 1-inch balls (about 1-2 teaspoons of cookie mixture) and place on a lined baking sheet. Freeze for at least 15 minutes or until completely firm, otherwise they may fall apart during coating.
- Melt 8 oz of chocolate according to package instructions. Coat the Oreo truffles with chocolate (see IMPORTANT notes and instructions in the post above to keep them from falling apart!!) and place back on the lined baking sheet.
- If wanting to coat twice, place them in the freezer until firm and then repeat the coating process. To decorate with white chocolate, make sure the dark chocolate coating is completely firm first.
