Oreo Truffles

My new sister-in-law Kristy introduced these to the Denney family and from that moment we knew she was meant to be in our family. The first time I made these was for the Super Bowl last year. I thought I could skip the step where you freeze the balls and started dipping immediately and I ended up with saggy balls. This time around I didn’t skip that step and they were perfect. They are so good with Nutter Butters in the middle too instead of Oreos. Watch out. These may be the fastest way possible to consume calories. Especially when I can pop these like popcorn.

Oreo Truffles

Yield: 30 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (18 oz.) Oreo cookies (or Nutter Butters), crushed into fine pieces
  • 1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened
  • Milk Chocolate for dipping (I like to use the Baker's melting chocolate that comes in a little tub in the baking aisle.)

Instructions

  1. The easiest way to do this is throw the Oreos in a food processor until crumbs then add the cream cheese until combined. If you don't have a food processor you can crush your Oreos in a Ziploc bag and then add the cream cheese to the bag and blend it with your hands.
  2. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on baking sheet or tray. Freeze until firm, about 30-60 minutes. Do not skip this step! Using a fork, dip Oreo balls into melted chocolate coating, tapping fork on the side to get excess off, and place onto waxed paper to harden (mine's soft in the picture because it was so hot outside). You may have to dip them in batches keeping the others in the freezer so that the balls stay firm.
  3. Chill and serve cold or room temperature. Makes about 30 truffles. Can freeze them up to two weeks.
  4. Oreo Truffle Pops: If you're making these into Oreo pops, form your balls and before you stick them in the fridge to harden up so that you can dip them, dip the end of your lollipop stick in the melted chocolate and then into your formed ball. This helps the stick stay in. After the balls have hardened up you can use the stick to dip the oreo balls in melted chocolate. Dry in a foam or Styrofoam block.

  1. These look lovely. I’ve never eaten oreos, perhaps I’ll buy a packet now and make these too, thanks.

  2. these look yummy! I’m going to try these out as a christmas treat this year I think – thanks for the post :)

  3. I just made them….they are in the freezer. Can’t wait to taste the end result.

  4. Ok….I just tasted the finished product and it is out of this world. These will not last long – my family loves them!!!! I ended up using a skewer to dip the balls in the chocolate vs. a spoon or fork. I sprinkled chopped pecans on it and then used another skewer to slid it off. There will end up being a hole in the ball – just dip the end of the skewer in the melted chocolate cover up the hole and sprinkle more pecans. Very very tasty. My 11 year old son asked if I can make them for Christmas. Thanks for the recipe!!!

  5. These look toooo good

  6. OMG! I just made these and I have to say they may just be the best thing ever!!!!

  7. Can you tell me how many one batch makes? I need to make 10 dozen cookies for an exchange. Thanks!

  8. Each batch makes around 30 truffles. You will love them!

  9. Hitting print now!!! Cannot wait to make these for Christmas eve!!

  10. we make these using mint oreo cookies. to die for!! just an extra idea:)

  11. All of your dessert recipes are literally magical. I can’t wait to make them all!

  12. Hi! I tried making cake pop before but could never get my chocolate to not harden too much. Urs looks perfect in the photo! Hw did you eat it so that the chocolate is more soft and not crunchy ? (hope you get what I mean!)

  13. @Anonymous,
    The chocolate is actually harder than it looks especially when you refrigerate it. But that’s what you want! This chocolate is only soft because it is sooooo hot in Florida.

  14. Those look so good. My mom made those like once when I was little.

  15. Quick question… What is the consistency supposed to be like once you mix in the cream cheese? Should it be pretty squishy? I live in China and each sleeve of Oreos is 130g… I calculated it all out and bought four packages to roughly equal 18oz, but when I mixed in my cream cheese it is still really crumby. I guess I should try adding more cream cheese? I really want to make these work so I can EAT them (oh and I’m supposed to bring them to a baby shower tomorrow..!!) Thanks! :)

    • So you want to use about 30 oreos for every block of cream cheese. It should not be crumbly at all. It should be pretty wet like cookie dough.

  16. Always looking for new easy recipes, by all the comments Im def gonna try thus one , thanks.

  17. Always looking for new easy recipes, by all the comments Im def gonna try this one , thanks.

  18. Re: Oreo Truffles…..You can use chocolate cake mix, can of chocolate frosting, and cream cheese to get the same thing. I have made these using Red Velvet Cake mix, cream cheese frosting and cream cheese.

  19. I want to make these in advance for a party. Is that ok? Do you have any storage tips?

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      These can totally be made ahead of time. I would freeze them for up to two weeks in a airtight container.

  20. What a great idea, love anything with Oreos! I am so going to make these for my next party!

  21. Made these today for a birthday dinner! They were a huge hit and major success! Thanks so much for sharing an awesome recipe! Quick and Easy! Delish!

  22. Just made these for Memorial Day weekend. They were great! I used gluten free Jo Jo’s from Trader Joes (gf Oreo equivalent) and they were delicious. The cookie package was about 12 oz so I only used about 6oz of cream cheese. What a success. Will make again!
