How to Make Oreo Truffles

Make-Ahead Method

  • Oreo Truffles are a great make-ahead treat and can.be made up to 5 days of time and can be stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve!
  • To make them longer than 5 days ahead, freeze them and let them thaw in the refrigerator prior to serving.

Pro Tips For This Recipe

  • Don’t allow any moisture to come in contact with the melted chocolate, this will cause it to seize when it’s melted. This includes using wet utensils to stir, etc.
  • Don’t melt the chocolate too quickly, low and slow is best. Follow package instructions.
  • Use melting chocolate or Baker’s bars as opposed to chocolate chips to ensure a smoother consistency.
  • To color the chocolate: Add 4 drops of oil-based  food coloring to melted white chocolate and stir until uniform in color. (Oil based food coloring is needed to ensure that the chocolate doesn’t seize.) 
  • You can also decorate the tops with sprinkles or crushed cookies right after they’ve been dipped.

Storage

  • These can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or you can freeze them for up to 3 months.

  1. If I add peppermint extract into the melted chocolate will it be ok or freeze up on me??  The extract does have water in the ingredients. It’s Mccormick Perppermint extract

  2. Could I freeze these overnight and then roll them in chocolate the next day? 

  3. Hello! Just wondering how many does 1 batch make and do the truffles absolutely need to be refrigerated after they are freshly made or will they be okay sitting out in room temperature? Thanks! 

  4. I was looking at the nutrition info. What is a serving size that equals the 224 calories? Please list serving size (1,2,3,4 truffles?) Thanks!

  5. Hello! Planning to make this and was wondering if when you added the cream cheese you mixed it in with the cookie crumbs in the food processor or stirred by hand? Thanks!

  6. Can I use regular chocolate instead of white chocolate?

  7. How will these hold up to mail ?

  8. How will these hold up to mail ?

  9. Just made these and they are delicious! However, I found that the cookie particles started flaking off into the white chocolate about a third of the way through the dipping, so would recommend that you only remove a few at a time from the freezer to dip. Unless, someone else can suggest another way? I also would make them half the size. They are very rich and each one provided 3-4 bites. I would prefer only two bites

  10. Question….do you think you can add mint flavoring to the white chocolate icing? I thought these may make great chocolate mint…kind of like the mint girl scott cookies.
