Grocery item goes gourmet

Oreo Truffles made with, you guessed it… oreo cookies. They are super easy to make and even easier to eat. They are crushed oreos blended with cream cheese and then covered in white chocolate. I first tried them when a co-worker made them – even though I had the recipe myself for a while. My original plan was to take these to work tomorrow to return the favor, but they’re already half gone. I don’t know what took me so long to make these, but I’m glad I finally did. I’ll put these right up there with my red velvet cake balls.

Oreo Truffles

Here’s what the cookies should look like when crushed…

No, Not Coffee…

And, here’s what they look like before the chocolate…

Here’s the bark that I use (except imagine it in white chocolate)

Oreo Truffles

Oreo Truffles

1 package oreo cookies (divided… use cookie including the cream center)
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
white chocolate bark

1. Finely crush 7 cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency. Reserve for later.
2. Crush remaining cookies and stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
3. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.
4. Melt chocolate as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry. You can sprinkle the tops with the 7 crushed cookies for decoration. (I usually eat mine before they make it to this stage.)
5. Once dry, refrigerate and enjoy!

Makes about 36 truffles.

Notes: I used a small cookie cutter to push the mixture through for the heart shaped truffles. Also, it helps to freeze the uncoated balls for a few minutes to keep the mixture from starting to fall apart in the melted chocolate. If this becomes a problem, dip them in the chocolate, let dry and then dip again. They are also good dipped in regular milk chocolate bark. And for an extra twist, use the mint oreo sandwich cookies.

Recipe amended from Kraft Food & Family Fall 2006.

Jacob – Yes… they’re the same.

You can find other colors in vanilla flavor as well. Check out Hobby Lobby or Michaels.

Connie – They’ll taste different and have a different texture/consistency.

Both are really good in different ways. Also, I haven’t tried the frosting with the oreos.

Could you use the truffle bites with a stick, like in the “pops” recipes?

hi bakerella,

i was thinking of making these to sell as wedding favours in my local area. the only problem is refridgeration. would you suggest putting a little disclaimer in each favour box telling guests to store uneaten truffles in the fridge? not everyone is a pig like me & might not eat them straight away. how long would these keep outside of a fridge?

thanks,
bianca

Hii Bakerella, I just discovered your site via Cakewrecks and think this recipe is awesome! I want to try it out, but I'm not sure what cream cheese is. I'm Dutch, and we have 'roomkaas' but I'm not sure if it's the same.
Is it like the brand Philidelphia, or am I entirely on the wrong track? Also, I think the Oreo cookies may be packaged differently here, so I was wondering how many cookies did you use? And do you think I could use different cookies aswell?

Hope you don't mind all the questions. I LOVE your site!<3

I had trouble finding bark, partially from lack of time, so I used Nestle Premier White choc chips and melted them in 30sec intervals in my micro-cooker(product from Pampered Chef), I only did half the bag at a time so it didn’t harden. They were very tasty with the chips even. I also used two forks for dipping which made it much easier!! Thought this might help, because I have trouble seeing outside the exact ingredients or methods used in a recipe and was pleasantly surprised at how well the came out the first time.

I also made them in Mint filling with dark choc…but all I could find were the double stuff mint oreos…they were mushy, but still tasted great…maybe I will try refrigerator next time instead of trying to freeze to harden.

Thanks again for a great site!!

Bakerella said...

angiefaith – I don’t remember how many were in the package. The brand is Philadelphia cream cheese and yes you can try it with other cookies. I used them with Nutter Butters, but the oreos are better.

Anonymous – good luck with them

Anonymous – With the double stuf, just take out some of the creme centers on some of the cookies before you combine.

Thanks for the recipe!

Hi Bakerella,

I am planning on either making these or the cake balls, or both, to help out a friend for her mini-dessert reception. What do you recommend to store them for a couple of weeks? Would freezing be ok? And then should she just let them thaw before serving?
Thanks for your help!

i am not sure if you will see this. i sure hope so. i am thinking about doing these for wedding favors…but in the shape of a wedding cake. i am doing a lot of DIY stuff (and making the grooms cake) so I was just curious how far a head of time you think i could make these and how you would store them. i read your thoughts on the cake balls, but i didnt know if the oreos changed anything…

thanks!

Thank you so much for the recipe! I froze the balls before dipping, and used almond bark. The only tip I’d give is that the almond bark solidified very quickly after dipping, so be sure to sprinkle each ball right afterward.

I also bought a bag of the mint oreos, and after that I may try the peanut butter ones.

Bakerella said...

Hoichi – I’ve frozen the cake pops. And they worked fine. I imagine the oreo balls would be okay as well.

Could you make the cake pops using this recipe? Do you think it would be a good idea to try it? I was going to make the cake pop mini cupcakes for a baby shower and then I saw this recipe and was thinking it would be cool to use the mint oreos instead of cake since the mom to be loves mint chocolate stuff :P

Bakerella,

you’re my not-so-secret hero! I decided that journalism isn’t going to be the love of my life, so maybe a couple of years after I finish school (I’m a senior at uni), I want to open up my own cafe/bakery, and you’re my inspiration.

My friend has talked me into making her some goodies for her monthly sleep-over, and since I’m always looking for an excuse to try new recipes, I’ve decided to tackle your Oreo truffles. I’m going to hunt for chocolate bark tomorrow. Wish me luck that they turn out nicely!

I love your blog!

A friend of mine told me about this recipe years ago. I make it all the time. I use semi-sweet chips and a tsp of vegetable shortening and melt my chocolate in the microwave, 30 seconds at a time.

Also, I’ve started making some variations, adding raspberry, hazelnut and mint extracts to the oreo mixture. DELISH! Brand new reader by the way. :)

Cheryl said...

These look great; however I’m in the minority of people who don’t like cream cheese. I know it’s crazy but it grosses me out. What else could you use to make these? Any ideas?

April 3, 2009 11:53 PM

Bakerella said...

Cheryl, you could try vanilla frosting I guess, I’m just not sure what the consistency would be like. You would probably need a lot less than what is used for the cake pops.

April 7, 2009 02:16 AM

Cheryl said...

I think the frosting might end up being too sweet (is that possible?). I actually ended up using a yogurt substitute. I drained the yogurt overnight to get most of the liquid out and then beat it with 3 tbsp of butter and 3 tbsp of powdered sugar to get the consistency of cream cheese and they turned out beautifully.

Bakerella…I am IN LOVE with your blog, as I am sure everyone else is! I was searching the web for some homemade wedding favor candies and stumbled upon your Oreo Truffles. Haven’t made them yet, but from the looks of them, I am thinking I will give each of my guest 2 a peice as my favors. My question is… How long can I make these in advance? I was going to have a baking party with my bridesmaids and make them for the wedding…but how long do they keep? I can’t be doing that the night before my wedding! Help!Thanks,

DawnP said...

I made these for a meeting at my daughter’s preschool this weekend, and they were such a hit, everyone “voted” that I’m now required to make them for all future school events, LOL!

A couple of people (in the comments) have asked whether you could do these on sticks like your cake pops. That was my original plan, but it didn’t work for me. The consistency of the Oreo/cream cheese mixture is too “wet,” I think — the balls don’t stay round, they “settle” into a flat-bottomed shape almost immediately. (Who knew there was so much oil in Oreos? My hands were slick with it after rolling them!)

Any suggestions on how to change the consistency to allow these to be made as pops? I actually made two different batches, one where I “reserved” the 7 Oreos, and one where I used all of them in the filling — both ways, it was too wet to make pops. Maybe less cream cheese? Or mix in some chocolate cake? Any suggestions would be most appreciated — these were TDF delish, but I love the cute factor with the pops, so I’d love to combine the two!

May 18, 2009 11:44 AM

Bakerella said...

DawnP – yes, try using less cream cheese… and put them in the freezer for about 10 min to get them firm enough to dip easily.

DawnP said...

Mystery solved as to why my truffles “sank” rather than staying round! The first time I made them, I used a food processor, not only to turn the Oreos into crumbs, but also to mix in the cream cheese. I guess that basically “liquified” the cream cheese, making the balls too wet to stay round. The next time I made them, I used the food processor for the cookies, but then mixed in the cream cheese with my mixer on low. The balls stayed MUCH firmer. I didn’t try making them as pops (that’s the next project), but I think the consistency should work now that I figured out the problem.

My next test is going to be to see if it works as well with store brand sandwich cookies as opposed to the brand name Oreos. I want to try the mint ones, and my local store only has Double Stuff mint Oreos, but has “single stuff” mint cookies in the store brand. We’ll see how it goes…

Thanks so much for this recipe– can't wait to try them. Question: I want to make them into pops and decorate them for my son's 1st bday party, but I can't think of any decorating ideas.. I know you have done valentines, halloween, etc. decorative pops.. Do you have any ideas or pics of other fun ways to decorate them? And the items you'd use to decorate with? Also, where do I get the pop sticks and dipping chocolate? does it work just as well if i use nestle choc chips and just add some veg oil or some paraben? THANKS!

Try the puppy pops from the site.

You can get most of the supplies from craft stores. I also put links to amazon which also offers most everything.

And, yes you can try chocolate and adding shortening if you can't find the melts.
Good luck.

These are delicious! Lucky in Love told me about these, so I decided I would make them for an upcoming 4th of July party. Well, I just made the test batch and Oh My Yum!

I used baking chocolate with shortening though, instead of the white chocolate bark. Held up beautifully so far. I'm dipping it twice to make them extra white (so I can drizzle red & blue chocolate over them).

Thank you for sharing!

I was so excited to make these after I did the hamburger cupcakes! But these didn't turn out well at all. :( I think it must have been the chocolate I used. I used light chocolate and white chocolate wafers but I don't think they worked well. Would they be different from the coloured wafers? I used a double boiler and the balls were melting and getting bits in the chocolate (this was after I had put them in the fridge for awhile). Anyway, the taste was…interesting. It's kind of a weird texture. I'm not sure I'll try those again but I'll definitely be trying your other recipes. :)

I made these yesterday along with the nutter butter balls and the cake balls (in devil's food) for my parent's 30th anniversary. It was a total success! I used some of the tips I found while perusing and they helped so much (like freezing the balls and using toothpicks). I used light and dark green melting chocolate disks and drizzled white chocolate over top of them. Here's the finished product: http://twitpic.com/8q4dj

I made these Oreo truffles for a fundraiser for the Make-a-Wish Foundation at my school. They were a hit! We sold them 3 for $1, and we probably made several hundred dollars off of them.

And as for the white chocolate vs. the bark, our student council agreed that while the bark was much easier to manage, the white chocolate was much tastier.

I've made these several times and they're always a hit! I've always used 'Baker's Semi-sweet Baking Chocolate Squares' for easy dipping. And the best part is you can get them at any grocery store. With a little sprinkling of crushed oreo to top them off, they look so pretty and taste sooooo….good.

Hi Bakerella! Need some advice.. Tried making your Oreo truffles but it turned out to be really bad.. The chocolate does not coat properly and the base is not coated at all.. It gets stuck to the base..I placed some photos of it on my blog.. Would greatly appreciate it if you could advise.. I’m from Singapore.. That’s way out in Asia so dun think I can get the chocolate bark.. So I bought chocolate coating.. Which didn’t seem to work sigh.. Pls help thanks! http://Www.aladyslife.wordpress.com

Jewel – I’m not familiar with that coating. But bark is the same as candy coating. But different from baking chocolate if that helps.

Also, it looks like the chocolate might have been too hot. Let it sir for a few minutes before you dip and maybe it would have been thicker. Also you can redip to make the coating more opaque. And use wax paper instead of foil. The balls will remove easier.

I finally got around to making these with cream cheese yesterday. The first time I made these I didn’t gave access to a refrigerator so I used a commercial cream cheese frosting. I think I might actually like them better with the frosting… These don’t seem quite sweet enough, and they have a very strong cream cheese flavor. Of course, the sweetness might not be an issue if I wasn’t dipping them in 60% cocoa chocolate chips…

Hi Bakerella,
Do you think the truffles would be sticky enough to roll in sprinkles or crumbs straight away without the chocolate coating? I live in Australia and we don’t have bark and the chocolate would start melthing on the truffles as soon as I took them out of the fridge.
Thanks :)

My boyfriend is on deployment and is obsessed with anything Oreo. I thought about making him these, do you think they’d last through shipping?! (takes about 5 days)

You can use any chocolate chips or white chocolate chips (even a crushed Hershey’s bar) to dip these in if you melt the chocolate slowly (double boiler) and add a bit of Crisco shortening while it’s melting. Makes it very smooth and shiny.

These are amazing!

I just made these for the first time and decorated them like pumpkins for Halloween. I followed the recipe, however, I kept the cream separate, and made mine with the cookie outer layer and creamy center. That’s what an oreo is all about, right?

I used the wilton candy melts, and they just never seem to work as well as the bark. I tried thinning it, but still no luck, as far as just dipping with a spoonI wound up making “pops” even though I hadn’t planned to.

Zoe – I don’t think they’ll be sticky enough for that.

Britt – Yes, but I’d use frosting instead of reg cream cheese since that needs to be refrigerated.

Angel – Those look great

Britt,
I’d like to mention that when I made the nutter butter ones, I didn’t refrigerate them. I left them at room temperature until they had all been eaten (at least a week). They had cream cheese as well, didn’t seem to do anyone any harm, and held up just fine.

My Family loooovvvved these. I used double stuffed oreos froze them for about 15 minutes and they were good to dip. I made two batches one was the Vanilla bark and the other the Chocolate bark they were absolutely wonderful. I took them to a party and everyone wanted the recipe! Thanks =)

The regular-size package in the grocery store. I think there’s only one. The cutter is about 1 1/2 inches wide.

my sister in law hooked me on these 2 years ago. she competes in figure competitions and has to severely restrict for a LONG Time. this was her “party treat” after the competition was over… My life has never been the same after tasting these delicious oreo treats! I share at the holidays with colleagues and they are always a hit! I get excited as the holidays approach, so i can make (and eat, and eat) these special delights! thanks for making it so much fun!

These look fabulous! I would love to try them…but I don’t think I’ve seen white chocolate bark before…
Is there anything I can use as a substitute?

I’m dying to make these gorgeous little treats for the holidays. Unfortunately, I don’t have access to the proper chocolate bark coating because I live in a small isolated northern community. Can you please make a suggestion for a different coating? What about melted chocolate chips (I’ve read some say that this doesn’t work)? Would icing sugar and cocoa work as a coating? I can’t believe that I’m getting stressed about truffles, but they are too cute!

Hi, I just made these and want to share a little tip. I had extra white candy melt and extra crushed Oreos (from sprinkling on top). So I mixed them together, spread it out between 2 pieces of wax paper, popped it into the freezer for a few minutes, then broke it into small pieces. I plan on placing these on the tray around the truffles when I put them out!
