Oreo truffles are addicting in the best way! They have the perfect texture and pair just right with white chocolate. Try to each just one!
Oreos are a tasty (and somewhat irresistible) treat as is, but when you take that iconic flavor and turn it into an Oreo truffle, your diet is in trouble. These little balls of cookies and cream will have your tastebuds dancing as you pile your plate with even more.
Another great thing about these Oreo truffles is that they could be a great addition to a Christmas cookie exchange (technically they are cookies, right?) and they can be made in advance! While those are both great things, I honestly think my favorite part of this recipe is how simple it is. Perfect for getting the kids in the kitchen to help make messy (and delicious) memories.
The hardest part about this recipe is crushing up the Oreos, especially if you don’t have a food processor handy. A secret tip I’d like to share is to place whole Oreos in a large zipper topped bag and squeeze out the air.
Lay it on a solid and flat surface and then roll over it a few times with a rolling pin (or beat it with a hammer if you have built-up aggression- it’s very therapeutic). You have to do the same thing when you make Oreo’s into a pie crust like for my no-bake strawberry cheesecake.
How to make Oreo truffles
- Crush your Oreos by hand or use a food processor until the crumbs are fine and even in shape. This means to make sure that nothing is too large and chunky and that all of the pieces are similar in size.
- Add in the cream cheese and mix well. If you’re using a food processor, you can directly add the cream cheese to the Oreos and pulse it around for a bit. If you did the rolling pin method, you’ll want to transfer the crumbs to a bowl and mix in the cream cheese by hand.
- Portion out the Oreo filling into rounded tablespoons and lay them on a flat baking sheet. Freeze for 5-10 minutes.
- In a separate bowl, melt your chocolate in the microwave in 30-second intervals until its smooth, remembering to mix between each session.
- Dip each Oreo into the melted chocolate and return to the tray to set.
- Place the tray in the fridge to help the chocolate hardening process if you’re impatient (like me) it won’t hurt the truffles.
Do Oreo truffles need to be refrigerated?
Due to the truffles containing cream cheese, it is best that they remain in the fridge for storage for food safety reasons. Not only that, but they also soften as they come to room temperature and won’t hold together as well if they become too warm.
How long are Oreo truffles good for?
If kept in an airtight container within your fridge you may find that your Oreo truffles do well up to 4 weeks (but who would leave these uneaten for so long?) If you’d like to store them even longer, you can keep them in an airtight container inside your freezer for up to 4 months!
