Oreo Truffles

I had never made this before, but it's really simple, only three ingredients: oreo cookies, cream cheese, and chocolate.

Okay, you know I can't eat this stuff, just looking at it makes me gain weight, so I'm going to make half the recipe. For about 16 truffles you will need:

21 oreo cookies (I actually counted)
4 oz cream cheese (half a package)
8 oz. chocolate morsels (more or less)

Put your Oreo cookies in a plastic bag and crumble them, you can bang them with a rolling pin, or if you wish, you can put them in a food processor. Small chunks are okay. Combine your crumbled cookies with the cream cheese, honestly, you'll have to use your hands to form a ball that sticks together. Place wax paper on a cookie sheet and take one tablespoon of the mixture into your hands and form a small ball. Place your truflles on the cookie sheet. Refrigerate them for one hour.

As for the chocolate, I had never melted chocolate for dipping before and I didn't do a very pretty job, but the instructions say to.... melt your chocolate over medium heat in a double boiler. When all the chocolate is melted turn the heat down to low. Use toothpick inserted into the truffles to dip them one by one into the chocolate. Place them back on the waxed paper and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

That's it, you can be creative with these and add sprinkles, or crumbled cookies, or whatever your heart fancies.


  1. oh YUM! I would eat them all! hehee. this sounds so good. you know those white chocolate covered oreos that they have available only during this time of year? well leave me alone with a package and I will eat them all....all of them at one time. they are so gooooooddd. your recipe reminds me of this. i may try it when I get home.

    p.s you changed your look around here. I like it.

  2. Yes, they are yummy and you can make them with the kids. As far as the look of the blog, all I did was change the background color. A small change can make quite a difference.

  3. Good picture and they look scrumptious and easy to make. Now that you're a pro at dipping sweets in chocolate, you may want to try dipping strawberries (in chocolate). Everyone is always impressed and they don't realize that it is one of the easiest desserts ever!!! Thanks for sharing.

  4. My stepdaughter made this for Thanksgiving and we couldnt stop eating them- amazing. She dipped them in white choc. to die for.
