How to Make Oreo Truffles

See recipe card below this post for ingredient quantities and full instructions.

Pulse Oreos in a food processor to form fine crumbs. (You can also do this by hand.) Combine with softened cream cheese.

A glass bowl with crushed Oreos and cream cheese before and after mixing.

Roll into 1-inch balls and freezer for 30 minutes or more, then dip into melted chocolate.

Transfer to the refrigerator to set for about 10 minutes. Melt more chocolate if desired and use a fork to drizzle it over the truffles. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until ready to serve.

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.

  • Lift the truffle out of the chocolate with a fork and slide the bottom of the fork along the top of the bowl to allow excess chocolate to drip off, then set it on top of the wax paper.

  1. Why can’t I use white chocolate baking chips?

  2. These are sooo good! I made them last year and I have to do them again this year. Question, how long do you think these would keep in the fridge? Would making them Monday be too early? Thanks! 

  3. Hi there
    Can you buy green baking candy melts instead of white chocolate bakers bar and the oil based coloring? I’m making 120 of these looking to cut some corners lol! Thank you!

    • Hi Sabrina! Yes! That would work just fine!!

      • Thank you- if I’m making these ahead of time let’s say on Wednesday I won’t add the chocolate dip right?, just create the truffles then pop them in the fridge until Thursday night and then do the chocolate dip and decor that night? I’m adding these to some Xmas treat bags with cookies so would it be safe to leave them in wrapped cookie bags on top of the counter or should I prepare the bags in the morning and put the truffles in the bag fresh out of the fridge? 

      • Hi Sabrina! You don’t have to wait on dipping them in the chocolate, you can prepare them completely and store them in the fridge. I would place them in the bags in the morning. Your recipients should be advised that it would be best to store the truffles in the fridge as well since there is cream cheese in there. 🙂

  4. 👉👈

    Brilliant

  5. It looks yummy.

  6. This says these are 224 calories each, would you happen to know if that’s with or without the chocolate drizzled on the outside? Because I’ve made these and love them, but didn’t use chocolate drizzle. I’m just trying to keep track of my calories and would love to know for future reference!

  7. Just made these for Christmas everyone requested that I make them again soon!!

  8. What am I missing? When do I use the food coloring? 

    • In the post it says:

      Holiday Version

      I put about 4 drops of oil-based green food coloring into slowly melted white chocolate and stir until uniform in color.
      I also add sprinkles just after the Oreo Truffles have been dipped into the chocolate.

      • Thank you for responding. Yes, I did happen to notice that while checking the recipe once again. This looks like something that I definitely would like to make. 

  9. Is it possible to make these without a food processor? Maybe with a blender or by hand?

  10. Also my food color is not oil based  can I use or no??

As Seen On…
