Easy Oreo Truffles

It’s ridiculous how easy, quick, and delicious these oreo truffles are. I’ve made them twice this week already and now I’m fighting the urge to make a peppermint kind after seeing those yummy looking peppermint Oreos today.

I’ve featured these Oreo truffles before as Halloween eyeballs, but I just had to show them again in a more elegant light.

These rich, chocolaty little balls of yumminess has the potential of being one elegant chocolate gift, party favor, hostess gift, or whatever! The color of the chocolate can be changed to suit any occassion and we won’t even get into all the ways you can change up the flavor using different sandwich cookies or add-ins. (strawberry white chocolate shortbread truffles anyone?)

Oreo Truffles Recipe

But that’s another blog post, today we are keeping it simple and focusing on the tried and true classic recipe:  Oreos, cream cheese, and chocolate!

Now, as you all know, I’m not that grand at decorating things (and yes, piping on chocolate is decorating in my book) So hopefully you will be a little bit neater with your piping and yours will look like they came straight from an upscale gourmet chocolatier. Although I do think a little imperfection give it’s it that hand made from love charm.

 

Watch me make these easy Oreo truffles from start to finish!

  5. Hi Monique. I love this recipe and would like to make it as a treat this Chinese New Year. Since I want to make these to store, I would like to know how long these truffles can last. Thanks!

  6. Hello, Monique! I am 17, have always loved & been interested in cooking, and finding your blog/videos has been the greatest thing to happen to me LOL! I absolutely LOVE your recipes! I went on a Divas Can Cook cooking escapade while at my mother’s for the summer! I made the Oreo Truffles and they were amazing! Is it possible to use a blender instead of a food processor to crush the Oreos into fine crumbs ’cause right now I don’t have the food processor? Thanks! xoxo :)

We’ll be having another gathering and one of my friends keeps callin’ to make sure I bring Oreo Truffles!!! I wanted to know though, right now I’m not with my food processor, I only have my blender. Is it possible to crush the Oreos into fine crumbs using a blender instead? Love you and your recipes!

    I just made your oatmeal Raisin Cookies but added Dark Chocolate Chips in the Batter.. I wished I could give u a hug! @ first I thought the dough was to wet so I ALMOST added a bit more flour thinking somewhere I messed up..and so I glad I didnt because there Perfect!! I better hurry and get me a cookie before there Gone!! I think I found a hit.. Love ya Girl!!

  12. How many oreo cookies did you use for this recipe? Define “1 pack”?

  13. omg…i made the truffles and they came out so good…..totally easy and fast about 15-20 min:)
    oh and i’m only 14 so thumbs up for th@ :0.if icould do this socan you

  14. Un, yeah, you can’t dye white chocolate with normal food coloring. It makes the chocolate seize up and renders it unusable. You could possibly use powdered food
    coloring, but your best bet would be candy melts.

  15. I am eating one of these while I type this comment. I am addicted to these things! Omg my diet is shot! Love, love, love your site though. Thanks for sharing
