oreo truffles

My life has been MIA but I haven't stopped making delicious desserts! If you're challenged in the kitchen then this is a recipe for you, it requires no baking and only uses a few ingredients.

I found this recipe for oreo truffles in a Cosmo a few years ago and totally forgot about it till last week. The truffles have an oreo and cream cheese filling, are dipped in milk chocolate, and drizzled with white chocolate.


16 oreos
8 oz (one small container) cream cheese
milk chocolate chips
white chocolate chips


Crush oreos into crumbs, I break an oreo into fourths and toss about 6 at a time into a blender and puree until they're fine crumbs.

Heat the cream cheese in a microwave so that it is soft and mix the crumbs and cream cheese to form the filling. There shouldn't be any white from the cream cheese left when it is all mixed together, I microwaved the entire bowl of crumbs with the cream cheese in it to make it easier to stir.

Allow mixture to cool in fridge for about 10 minutes, then roll into small round balls and place on a cookie sheet. Once you have all the balls formed, let sit in the freezer for an hour to harden.

After an hour melt about half a bag of chocolate chips in the microwave for about 1.5 minutes then just drip the hardened cream cheese balls into it and replace on cookie sheet. The entire ball should be coated, don't worry if the chocolate sticks out in funny places, it just makes it look like there's a cool texture. Warning it does get a little messy! I'd suggest an apron.

Melt about 1/4 of the bag of white chocolate chips for about 1.5 minutes in the microwave. Dip a fork in the chocolate and shake on top of the chocolate coated balls to create the drizzled look I did above.

Put in the freezer for about 2 hours and enjoy!

Instead of drizzling white chocolate you could add crushed peppermints, sprinkles, oreo crumbs, crushed nuts, the possibilities are endless!

Warning; they're addictive. Happy truffle making!
