Ingredients

Cookies: I had a family-sized package of regular Oreo cookies. I used 39 cookies for the center filling and then reserved 3 cookies to crumble for the topping.

Cream Cheese: Be sure the cream cheese is at room temperature before adding it to the food processor.

Chocolate: I used semisweet chocolate chips for half of the truffles and then white chocolate chips for the other half of the treats. You can stick to one kind of chocolate for all of the truffles or make some of each, like I did.

Oil: Mixing vegetable oil with chocolate helps the chocolate melt more smoothly.

How to Make Oreo Truffles

This dessert is pretty easy to make; it just gets a little tedious while coating the Oreo cookie and cream cheese balls. To get started, add 39 Oreo cookies, filling and all, to a food processor. (You could use a blender if that is all you have, but the crumbs will not be as finely crushed). After you crush the cookies for for 1-2 minutes, add the cream cheese and continue pulsing until the mixture is smooth, or about 30 seconds or so.

Next, scoop out the mixture and form it into 24 balls, about an inch in diameter. Place the balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place the baking sheet into the refrigerator to chill for 30-45 minutes. The balls should be firm before coating them with melted chocolate.

Coating the Truffles in Chocolate

When firm, add the chocolate and oil to a microwave-safe bowl. Melt the chocolate in 20-second intervals, stirring after each 20 seconds, until the chocolate is smooth and melted. If making half semisweet chocolate and half white chocolate, use 1 1/2 cups of each with 1 1/2 teaspoons of oil for each. 

Once melted, it’s time to coat the cookie and cream cheese balls. I recommend taking out just a few of the balls at a time; otherwise, they will get too soft. Gently drop one of the balls into the melted chocolate, coating it completely. Use a fork to lift the truffles out of the bowl. Then, use a toothpick to slide the truffle off of the fork onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Finish coating the remaining cookie balls with chocolate and top with some crumbled Oreo cookies. Finally, place them back into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, or until the chocolate has set.

How to Store Oreo Truffles

Be sure to store the truffles in the refrigerator in an airtight container. This prevents the chocolate coating from getting too soft; plus, they taste best when cold! The truffles will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. You can also freeze them in a freezer-safe container for up to 2 months. When ready to enjoy, let them thaw in the refrigerator overnight.

Variations of Oreo Truffles

You can create a variety of different designs using melted semi-sweet chocolate, melted white chocolate, and crushed Oreos. We used a piping back with the tip cut off and drizzled more chocolate over ours. You can also use white chocolate for chocolate coating, using the same method above. You could also use white Oreos and white chocolate.

Ingredients
  • 42 Oreo cookies*, divided
  • 1 block (8 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3 cups (504g) semisweet chocolate, or white chocolate
  • 3 teaspoons vegetable oil
Instructions
  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add 39 Oreos (stuffing and all) to a food processor and pulse until the cookies are ground down to a fine crumb (1-2 minutes). Reserve 3 cookies for topping.

  3. Add the cream cheese to the food processor and continue to pulse until the mixture is smooth (30 seconds to a minute).

  4. Scoop out the mixture and form into a 1-inch balls, placing each on the lined baking sheet. (I made 24 truffles.)

  5. Chill the balls in the refrigerator for 30-45 minutes (or until firm).

  6. When ready, add chocolate and oil to a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 20-second increments, stirring after each time, until the chocolate is melted and creamy. Let it sit for 2 to 2½ minutes to cool slightly before dipping.

  7. Remove the Oreos from the refrigerator. (It's helpful to only remove a few at a time to prevent them from getting too soft.) Working one at a time, gently drop the balls into the melted chocolate, making sure they are completely covered in chocolate.
  8. Using a fork, lift out the chocolate-covered oreo truffles. Use a toothpick or another fork to slide the truffle onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. (You may need to reheat the chocolate to keep it a thin mixture.)
  9. Place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, or until the chocolate has set.
  10. Store candies in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
