{This post was adapted from my previous blog “My Fabulous Recipes”} If you ask me what my favorite kind of truffle is, I am going to answer “oreo truffles”. Oreo truffles are probably the easiest truffles I have ever made – you only need three ingredients – oreos, cream cheese, and dipping chocolate. Some of you may already have tried this recipe, maybe they are your favorite, too. I made these truffles last year for the first time and they were such a hit. So I decided to make these again this year – and I will make these again next year. :)

I made these truffles in two different ways. Some of them, I rolled them in oreo crumbs, some other ones, I sprinkled oreo crumbs on top. Both ways are great, whatever you decide to do. My husband thinks the oreo sprinkled ones look prettier. But I think the rolled ones are pretty, too.

These oreo truffles are great for gifting. My husband and I have a tradition every Christmas, we make lots of different kinds of candies and gift them to co-workers, families, and neighbors.

Ingredients
  • 1 (16 ounce) package OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, divided
  • 1 (8 ounce) package Cream Cheese, softened
  • 8 oz dipping chocolate

Instructions
  1. Crush 7-9 oreo cookies in a food processor or place them in a resealable ziplock bag and finely crush them using a kitchen hammer. Set aside.
  2. Crush the remaining oreo cookies in the same manner. Combine the crushed oreo cookies and the cream cheese and mix well using an electric mixer until well mixed and smooth.
  3. Roll mixture into small balls, about 40-45 (or less if you decide to make bigger sizes balls). Place them on parchment paper.
  4. Dip the balls in melted dipping chocolate (to melt the dipping chocolate, microwave them in a bowl about 30 seconds at a time, stirring well, about three times)
  5. Roll the dipped truffles in oreo crumbs that were set aside earlier or sprinkle the top of oreo truffles with oreo crumbs. Set aside until hardened, about 1 hour.

    I don’t think I could just eat one.

    I love oreo truffles too! When I first saw them, I made them almost immediately.

    I’ve tried making these! They came out successful and I’m pretty proud of myself since I’m usually a failure at these kinds of things. They were very tasty and I ate almost half the batch. But there was one problem. About the chocolate, it melts very quickly when they are taken out of the fridge and I intend on making these for valentines day. They need to be able to not melt for a few hours or more because I’m making them for my school and the only time I can give these is during a free period. So I have to wait three hours until I can give them. I don’t think they can survive that long unless if they’re in a fridge, so do you have any tips on how I can make them last?

      Hi! Thanks for your comment! I am wondering if you used dipping chocolate not the normal chocolate. I would recommend that you use dipping chocolate. You can find these at craft stores (I know what a strange place to find dipping chocolate). It is a common problem when you use normal chocolate chips, it will melt quickly but if you use good dipping chocolate, it shouldn’t melt even out of the fridge. Please let me know if this is what happened. If you’re making a lot of truffles for Valentine’s day, buy at least two packages of dipping chocolate. Good luck!

      This is the same person. I have just figured out that any kind of chocolate can work as long as you temper it right. I did more research other cooking sites and I figured out my problem. I didn’t temper the chocolate right. Though dipping chocolate is more suitable, anything can be used like Girahdeli’s (or however you spell it). It just needs to be tempered right.

      And yes, I used hershey’s chocolate the first time I made these. But now I know better. I need to get higher quality chocolate and temper it right.

      I am glad you figured it out! I’ve tried doing it with normal chocolate chips before and it’s not as pretty, either. It always gets messy. But since you figured it out the way to do it, I’m sure your truffles will turn out pretty! :) Good luck and Happy Valentine’s day!
