3 delicious and simple ingredients for an amazingly tasting dessert that’s extremely easy to make.
When you need to crush Oreos but you don’t have a food processor at hand, you can just place all of your Oreos in a closed ziplock bag, then bang or roll a rolling pin over the cookies until they’re crushed as much as you need them to be.
When rolling your Oreo balls, they will look oily, and that’s perfectly normal. When the truffle filling is a bit warm, the cream cheese and Oreo release a bit of oil and the Oreo cream cheese balls may seem oily. This will disappear as soon as you pop them into the freezer
You’ll need only 3 simple ingredients to make this easy recipe:
Take a look at the recipe card at the bottom of this post for exact quantities.
There are just a few easy steps to make these chocolatey truffles:
First, prepare a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside
Second, crush your Oreo cookies into fine crumbs using a food processor or a rolling pin. Scoop out 2 Tablespoons of the cookie crumbs and set them aside
Then, add the full-fat cream cheese and mix until a thick paste is formed. Using a small cookie scoop or a tablespoon, measure the mixture and use your hands to shape them into small balls. Place them in the cookie sheet and freeze for 30 minutes.
While the balls are in the freezer, place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and melt the white chocolate in the microwave, in 30-second intervals, or use a double boiler and use the water bath method. Take a look at my post Melting Chocolate 101 for more information on how to properly melt the chocolate.
Remove the balls from the freezer. Start by sinking your truffle into the melted chocolate until fully covered, then slide the edge of a fork under the truffle and lift it up. Tap into the edge of the bowl and slide the bottom of the fork into the edge of the bowl to get rid of the excess chocolate. Use a toothpick to slide the truffle out of the fork and into the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the top of the truffle immediately with the remaining cookie crumbs.
Lastrly, refrigerate for 30 minutes until the chocolate shell is completely set and serve immediately.
These delicious Oreo truffles have cream cheese in them, which is why they are better kept in the refrigerator when not being served.
Not only they could potentially go bad if kept in a very warm place, but they start to get soft and crumbly.
These cookie truffles are better kept in the refrigerator, just until ready to serve. They will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
Yes! We know how hectic Christmas time or the Holiday season can get, and this is a great make-ahead treat.
You can make these Easy Oreo truffles and freeze them in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
Make sure you place a piece of parchment paper between each layer of truffles to avoid them from sticking together.
