oreo truffles recipe

i don't know where i found out about this recipe... i think it was on pinterest. but once i saw it, i couldn't get it out of my head...

things are about to get crazy up in here. we are about to dive into the wonderful world of oreo truffles, friends. get yourself prepared.

1 package (18 oz.) Oreo cookies, crushed into small pieces
1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened
White or Chocolate melts for dipping

truffles 1

(i used chocolate chips, mostly because i don't know where to conveniently find candy melts in my neighborhood.)

♥ Mix crushed Oreos and cream cheese until well-combined.
♥ Either use a food processor or a ziplock and blend with your hands.
♥ Roll into 1-inch balls and place on baking sheet or tray.

♥ Refrigerate until firm, 3-4 hours (or stick in the freezer for about an hour).
♥ Dip Oreo balls into chocolate and place onto waxed paper to harden.

♥ Chill and serve cold or room temperature. Makes about 40 truffles.

Now, I have a secret for you...

I want to tell you how awesome they were...

but the truth is, I was a mite disappointed with these. They were REALLY really chocolate-y, when I thought they were going to be more Oreo-y. It could've been because I used actual chocolate to coat them, rather than candy melts.

I think when it comes down to it, I'm much more of a cake person, rather than a candy person (unless the candy in question is caramel, toffee, or peanut butter-related.) All the more reason to hunt down some candy melts and make me some cake pops.

Bottom line. If you are a chocolate-aholic... if you are a cacao FIEND... if you *REALLY* really like can't live without loads and loads of chocolate in you life... make these asap.

  1. I am so pro about these oreo truffles that I may just make them tonight. They look incredibly scrumptious!

  2. they were good, i did eat them all! but i would suggest finding the candy melts, rather than using chocolate for dipping. it was a little overkill (unless you like chocolate overkill... many people do ;)

  3. I'd never say no to more chocolate ;)

  4. I made these! They are SO delicious, and way too addicting!

  5. omg they look so good.. now just add some peanut butter to the mix and we'll call it heaven

  6. These look so good. I might have to try these.

  7. I am totally craving chocolate right now! :p

    Happy Friday! ;D

  8. Oh my goodness YUM! That looks so good, must try!


  9. These would probably be the death of me...but at least I would die really happy! They look amazing!!

  10. Thanks for posting this. I've been pondering making these for a while….I want to try it with the white oreos. I myself was skeptical if it would taste super oreoy or not…I bet it's still good though!

  11. i think they'd be more oreo-y if you left a lot of the oreos in pieces. i basically pulverized them into powder, so it was a smoother mixture. and consequently, it tasted more like regular-ole chocolate than oreo.

  12. These look so incredibly easy and way too delicious to not be dangerous:) I like that they don't require a million and a half ingredients like other truffle recipes...and I actually have all these things in my pantry at the moment...score!

  13. That fridge looks great! It'd match my coffeemaker. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Oh my stars I must try these! Thanks for sharing:)
