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.

mitchellsmomma – just use the regular chocolate bark.

If the coating dries hard and doesn’t melt to the touch, you can try something else. If you use reg chocolate, you may need to add some vegetable oil or shortening to make it easier to work with.

Heather – cute

These are truly fantastic! I made them today for Thanksgiving and they were a complete smash!! :)

My family loved these… I divided the recipe and put a little raspberry extract in half… Yum! I did use really good choc.morsels … They turned out great!!!

Ariana said...

Just made these last night with my two friends… this kind of recipe is perfect for a group of girls who love making desserts but don’t have the money to spend! University sure takes it out of you.

We used dark chocolate bark with pieces of crushed candy cane to cover them, and they were delightfully chocolate-y, mint-y, stress-relief-y morsels of glee!

Thanks for a fun night, Bakerella!

Hi Bakerella and everyone out there, is the oreo and cream cheese mixture supposed to be oily after mixing? Mine was pretty oily, which I think caused my truffles to ooze out oil after I’ve dipped them in chocolate and let dry, it was a pretty disgusting sight.

Any suggestions? Reduce the cream cheese? I tried reducing it the 2nd time and it was still pretty oily. Or has it got something to do with the way that I mix in the cream cheese (by hand)?? i need help!!

Natasha said...

I just tried this recipe with the white sandwich cookies (white cooke, white cream) and added lemon extract along with the cream cheese…dipped them in white chocolate — delicious!!!

Tine said...

This is a really great idea of making truffles without much work. Since one year I can buy oreo in germany too, so I have to try this. There is just one question about the recipe: How many cookies did you take in whole? I’m pretty sure they are selling other packages in germany than in usa.

Now I will go on browsing your blog :)

Bakerella, ive made these a few times and they are wonderful. but now i was wondering if you have ever tried making them into snowmen? i was wanting to give it a try for a christmas party im going to, but i have nowhere near the experience you do. Any tips or ideas?

December 12, 2009 09:36 PM
Holly said...

I made these for our annual cookie swap this year using the mint creme oreos & it was voted best-tasting cookie! We even had a local radio/TV personality there who filmed our event for a local TV show. I mentioned your site when she interviewed me for submitting the winning cookie.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes and beautiful photographs. I love the site!

Wendy Allen said...

Hi, I tried these for the first time today (as a test run for next week.) I just love these things and your recipe is great. However, I had trouble dipping them with a spoon, as they wanted to stick to the spoon. I did freeze them for a few hours before I dipped them…and if you roll the ball in the white chocolate, they seem to put crumbs in it by the 2nd ball. Any suggestions? I was thinking of putting a toothpick in the balls before I froze them…HELP!

December 13, 2009 09:26 PM
Michelle V said...

I made these today for a xmas party tomorrow. I attempted to make them into snowmen and posted how it went on my LJ. had a couple problems,but not bad for my first attempt. I did learn a couple tips for next time. Hope you try it out. :)

WOWzers. I made these over the weekend and I am obsessed. GREAT idea.

Annalise said...

has anyone ever made these in advance (say 10 days – wanting to take them to Christmas Eve!)?? Do they freeze well? Do I need to freeze them un-coated, and then coat them the day before???? thoughts???? :o)

Hi, Bakerella!
I just tried this recipe with mint oreo today. Oh my. They taste GREAT! Thank you for the great idea! I am planning to making Nutter Butters and cake balls with red velvet cakes for Christmas party at my in-laws this weekend.
I have one problem with this though… They don’t look good… The oreo balls are coated with white (vanilla) chocolate, but they are not evenly coated… They don’t look as good as yours in the picture… Is there any way you can show us how you coat your truffles with melted chocolate? Do you keep melted chocolate in a certain temperature?

Jamie said...

I made these and the red velvet truffles last night and both are amazing.

I wanted to share what I did for the chocolate coating in case you want to add it as a note, maybe. I didn’t have any of the chocolate bark and wasn’t going to pay $3.00 for it when I had a ton of chocolate chips at home. I did read the comments from others who tried using chips and had bad experiences, but I figured I would try another angle…

First, I tried coating with a ganache made from equal parts heavy whipping cream and chocolate chips, since I knew it would run thin enough to easily coat the truffles. It did coat them, but it doesn’t set up like dipping chocolate would. I didn’t throw those out though – I set them aside for later.

What I did next worked amazingly well. I used about a tablespoon of shortening (do NOT try it with butter or margarine, the chocolate will just solidify weird) and about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips. Put them together in a small bowl, stuck it in the microwave for 40 – 45 seconds (just watch for the shortening to melt then take it out). Stirred well with a spoon until the chips melted (the shortening gets hot enough to melt the chips), and then started dipping.

I used a larger size spoon, flipping the truffle over, covering with chocolate and then removing to wax paper. I think the amount of chocolate mixture I made coated about 10 balls at a time before I either ran out and the chocolate started to cool down too much.

Some I did with semi-sweet chocolate then once hardened, drizzled dark chocolate over them, which might help some people who aren’t happy with how theirs looks. I also sprinkled some with nonpariels and some with granulated sugar. Everyone LOVED them! And I am struggling to keep my hands off the Oreo ones!

December 17, 2009 05:27 PM
Jamie said...

PS – I didn’t read through all the comments to see if anyone else has tried the shortening/chip combo or not, so I might be late with my comment. :)

Laura said...

Have you ever substituted cream cheese frosting for the cream cheese? I want to make these as gifts and be able to let them sit out all day at the office. Cream cheese sitting out all day seems scary. Thanks, I love your recipes & ideas!

Wow…. Ive been making this exact recipe for over 5 years. Pretty crazy.

I just made these today and gosh they’re a success. FYI, I used white mint candy melts and it is soooooo good!

persianquinn said...

I made these for Christmas and everyone loved them/ They didnt come out very pretty..the chocolate was not cooperating. I am hoping to see if AC Moore or Michaels has the bark..I usually have no problem with the wafers..perhaps some shortening the next time..Thank you for all your lovely ideas!!

December 27, 2009 09:16 AM
Freckles said...

WOW! These (and NutterButter and Red Velvet) were a HIT at my mother-in-law’s Christmas party! I made too many so I gave some to my friends too. Everyone LOVED it!

Jamie — Thank you for your idea! I will try to add some shortening next time I make them, which I definitely will do~!

Where can the choc bark be bought in australian? If not, is there a substitute for the white chocolate bark?

Hilarie said...

I just made these with my cousin (I’m 18, she’s 17) and they were soo easy to make. We had to alter it a bit because we didn’t have the big things of oreos, just the package with 2 rows. I decided to try the Wilton Candy Melts because I wanted them to purple for my birthday party. They tasted amaazing. My dad loved them and he doesn’t even like oreos [:

i made these for christmas but instead of dipping them in chocolate i rolled them in chocolate sprinkles its an easy option especially since i live in australia its hot here so dipping in chocolate is a messy option ! enjoy

I made these for Christmas and they were a huge hit! They were gone so fast! I think I may make some more this weekend! Yummy!!

I found this website recently only by the grace of God. Today when my 2 year old was taking a nap with my hubby i made these. They turned out excellent. When my daughter woke up and found a tray of truffles she was out of this world. Thanks a lot. By the way after this my husband think I am even better than Racheal Ray. haha….
Thanks a million

I am a Girlscout mom and am thinking about making some “cookie pops” with ground up Girlscout cookies (Probably Thin Mints dipped in Chocolate and Peanut Butter Patties dipped in chocolate). Can you put the cookie truffles on a stick? I think that would be more fun for the presentation for the kids!

Let me know!

I made these oreo truffles for my friend’s brithday at our monthly book club meeting.

I put them on lollipop sticks and stuck them in a tiered styrofoam “cake”. I’d post the picture if I knew how, it looked really cute.

I used the Wilton vanilla candy melts, which were fine for dipping.

Thank you for sharing with us!

Cari said...

I make these every year for Christmas…but have added a few twists along the way. Despite my sweet tooth…I can only eat a couple of the Oreo filling ones. So, I tried the all vanilla oreos and they are wonderful too! My husband is a huge peanut butter and chocolate fan… So, I tried Nutter Butter cookies instead of Oreos…and they were GREAT!! The mix is a tad more corse but it worked just as well.

February 2, 2010 09:02 PM
Suzanne said...

I’ve been making these for several years and they are always a huge hit!

A few variations: When using mint oreos, I’ve also added a drop of peppermint extract to the dipping chocolate. I’ve used the red colored (white chocolate flavored) melting chips and sprinkled crushed candy canes on top.

Egg Nog Truffles: Use vanilla oreos. Add a little nutmeg to the mixture and imitation rum to the melted white dipping chocolate.

Finally, when using melted chocolate chips for dipping: I have found that adding just a drop of vegetable oil to the melted chocolate makes the chocolate a little thinner, very smooth and easier to dip:)

i received a tin of these for xmas, i ate one and refused to share! oh my goodness they are so good~!

Emilie said...

Hello Bakerella :D I want to make these for valentines day, but I wondered, do you remove the cream filling or do you crush it aswell :) and are 7 oreos really enough?

February 6, 2010 04:31 AM
Lisa said...

For me the thought of using the microwave to melt chocolate just didn’t seem right – OH how I was wrong, so much easier working in smaller batches and melting in the microwave. Now the Microwave has 2 purposes popcorn and chocolate!
I also used white chocolate chips and they melt fine, adding as needed a bit of veg shortening or oil to the white chocolate for the perfect smooth texture.

What a fabulous Idea. It’s too late for the Super Bowl, but
I have a Red Hat Valentine Luncheon on the 13th and am
going to make the girls Heart shape Truffles. I’m excited!!!

Thank you for the idea. The other comments have helped
alot also. Thank you too, GIRLS

February 7, 2010 12:14 PM
kari said...

would they fall apart because of the heat of the chocolate when i dip them? Because that happened when I made the cake balls :(

Is it possible to vary this recipe and use icing instead of cream cheese? Please let me know as I can’t eat cheese! Thank you!

February 9, 2010 03:41 PM
Sabrina said...

Recipe looks absolutely delicious! If i were to use milk chocolate for dipping the truffles, is it also a good idea to add butter when i melt the chocolate? I think i heard that if you add butter, it makes the chocolate nice and shiny? thanks

February 11, 2010 02:47 PM
Kelly said...

I had trouble mixing with a large spoon, so I just used a pastry blender and it worked great. I made the oreo and the nutter butter ones. Oreo was definately a hit. Such an easy recipe! Thanks!

February 13, 2010 11:20 AM
Deanna said...

I made these delectable truffles into a whole birthday CAKE and it turned out amazing!!! I used 4 packages of Oreos ( a little expensive but sooo worth it! PLUS I went a little overboard, could have gotten away with 3 packages :) I also used your chocolate ganache as the icing. I made it as a two layer cake and used coolwhip as the filling in between.. I absolutely LOVE your website sooo many good and easy recipies :)

Jennifer Gallos said...

I loved this recipe. I made it for my weekly family gathering, and a lot of them loved it. I did make the mistake of double coating the oreo balls with chocolate too much, so from that it was way to sweet. I’ve made this recipe 4 times since Valentines day and I have got to say, every time I make it, most of the oreo balls don’t make it out of my house…*shy’s away* VERY EASY, but OH so DELISH!

March 10, 2010 09:22 PM

Maggie said...

I treid making these but after i melted the white chocolate I got impatient and put it in the fridge (rookie mistake I know) and it got all hard and I only got one ball out of it :( so I used some candy melts I had for the rest and they were good! My best friend just kept popping them in her mouth one after the other!

MrsAB said...

Bakerella!!!! OMGoodness, these are FABULOUS!!! I made some last night and brought a few in to my coworkers who love them. They are truly delicious. I will have to try the mint oreos next. For the chocolate, I used what I had on hand which were Nestle Premiere White Morsels, even against the better judgment of other people on this board. The chips worked PERFECTLY! The chocolate hardened even before putting in the refrigerator. After I ran out of Nestle PWM I used a few squares of my Bakers white chocolate. Those did not hardened while sitting out but did once in the frig. The two chocolates turned out great and I will use them again if I can’t find the chocolate bark which seemed to give a thicker coating than the ones I used. Also, the dipping utensils I use is a spoon and a plastic fork with the middle two tines removed. It helps getting rid of the excess chocolate! Great inexpensive tool to say the least! Thanks again for the wonderful recipes!!!

I was sent over to your website for ideas for my son’s 1st birthday party. I LOVE the idea for these oreo truffles but am having a hard time finding white chocolate bark…I found Bakers white chocolate baking squares but since I have never used bark am not sure if its the same thing. Would this work? My girlfriend made the red velvet cake pops and other than them not coming out perfectly rounded she said they were wonderful and can’t imagine these tasting any better so I am trying to prove her wrong and make these perfect, LOL!

April 21, 2010 10:43 AM
Sara said...

These look delicious!

But…. how many oreos are in a package?
Cuz here in Denmark a package only consists of 16 oreos.
And I would think that it’s not the package you used.

April 27, 2010 03:21 PM

Sara~ in the US there are 32 cookies per package :) and I just made these they are WONDERFUL and DELICIOUS! LOL!

Love this recipe, as I love all things on your site. Had a disaster in my first outing trying to make cake pops but I persevered and now I’m making them like a pro (well, not quite as beautifully executed as yours, but I’m happy with them).

Planning to make these Oreo truffles tonight for my son’s birthday and I thought I would share that I’m going to paint the white balls with stitching so they are BASEBALL TRUFFLES! He will love it.

Also: in reading the comments, I notice that several people try to melt their bark in the microwave. I know that the directions state that you can melt your chocolate in the microwave or use a double boiler, but please take my advice to heart (as someone who has tried both): DOUBLE BOILER IS WELL WORTH THE EXTRA EFFORT. Melting chocolate in the microwave does NOT yield the same consistency (smoothness) or ease-of-use as melting it in the double boiler.

Just thought I’d share that tip.

*thumbs up*, love your stuff! :)

OMMMMMMG..These are to die for.
So, I just had a question about leaving them out….I am thinking about using these oreo truffles as my wedding favors..The kicker is that they would need to be left out all night and all the day of the wedding…How do you think this would work?
Also, how long do you think they will last. Can I make them three or four days before the wedding? What about freezing them?

Bakerella! I tried these, finished them a few minutes ago, and started in the morning…….. Results?
1. My feet are aching
2. I had to clean up the whole kitchen, and for a teen, thats hard.
3. I used a spoon to crush the oreos and hat took precicely ca day and a half to accomplish. oka. That’s exagerating. but the end results were…………. Sick. yep. I did eat my heart out and ended up vowing to never eat anything sweet again.
They were beautiful. dippped in white choc, dark choc, mms and……. I have bandaged fingers.(Joke. but they were scalded.) Thanks, they were delicious(ate more cookie stuff than the coated cookie stuff) and great.
Thanks for being amazing, even though i have a serious tummy ache and gained two pounds or more, This is truly amazing a recipe. And let me tell you, you don’t find those much anywhere. So congrats, even though you’re probably not gonna reply to this (yo, its like2010!) or even if you do, I’m just ‘one of your fans’ let me tell you, I’m not. no. I’m not. I value recipes, GOOD recipes alot, And this has reached my standards. And that, coming from me, is great. And Lyla Jenkins isn’t my name. For all the different coments I have written, I have different ones. Hey, I’m new to this site. Safety precautions? So, Thanx for the recipe and I am a great speller.

I don’t know if you will get this since this is an old post :) BUT I love these oreo balls and they seem so much easier than the cake balls for a novice baker like me. :) Can you use this recipe for all of your other cake ball ideas? (like the candy apple pops for example?) Thanks!!

One quick question for you…. We don’t get chocolate bark in New Zealand… Is it the same as cooking chocolate? Can you use regular chocolate?
Thanks!!! :)

All i have to say about this recipe is WOW! I will certainly be making more of the same. I did make a few substitutions though. Oreo’s and dark chocolate were a little high to come by so I subbed other cream centred biscuits, half the recipe in strawberry and the other half in cuppachino and I used normal milk chocolate. I also subbed cream cheese with plain smooth cottage cheese. They were deliciously messy to make and my tastebuds skyrocketed out of this world. Thank you for this fantastic recipe!

Darcy said...

The key to a good chocolate coating in my opinion is paraffin was. It can be found in the baking isle or canning isle. It is food safe. Simple melt a small cube of it in with your chocolate and it make it less sticky and its easier to handle when cooled.

do you need to scrap out the center cream of oreos when making oreo truffles?

September 28, 2010 09:50 AM
Scarlett Robyn said...

I’ve made these for years, after an old teacher told me about them when I was at school. I crush the oreos in a food processor, as it’s much faster!

Mace said...

I made these yesterday and they are SOOOOO good! My husband helped and he rolled some of the cookies (before they were dipped) into coffee grounds and then we dipped them. They turned out SO good! They taste like little moca truffles :) The only think we had trouble with was making the truffles look nice. The while choc kept forming lumps around the oreo’s and was not coting thick enough. You can see the darkness of the oreo under the white choc. Any thoughts? I thought maybe I could double dip them after they harden up?

So i dont live in America anymore which means most of the ingredients needed for things I can’t find! but i attempted these and OMG they were a bigger hit than i could have ever imagined.. i wish i could post a picture here for u 2 see.. i found a plate with different compartments and each one had a different topping.. so some were covered in coconut, some crushed almonds.. some sprinkles.. some crushed oreos.. and some i even melted peanut butter and drizzled ontop (those were a big success)

i actually melted normal milk chocolate bars from the candy section and they worked perfectly!

so thank you for this :)

For Halloween I made oreo balls and used the orange candy melts and green tic tacs to turn them into pumpkins. Roll the balls and dip into the orange chocolate and place on wax paper then insert the green tic tac on top like a stem for the pumpkin. My friends loved them. When they were on the wax paper it look like a mini pumpkin patch. So cute try it.

I tried these for the first time this week. I made Christmas ones by dipping in white coating mix, then a sprinkle of red/green jimmies before the coating dries. A few hints I can offer, make smallish balls, chill them WELL, almost frozen for the cleanest dipping. I push a round toothpick into each and this makes for a clean, pretty dip. Only do a couple before adding sprinkles, if you do a whole bunch, it gives the coating too much time to harden and they won’t stick. After they are well dried, gently twist each toothpick to break loose and remove. Thanks for a great idea, my family loves them already!

These are so good! And SO easy! They are my go-to easy dish to take with me to friends’ houses.

Ok…. I tried making these tonight for an up coming bake sale (trial batch).

I found the nutter butter a little bland like you said, so I added a little salt. It did the trick. Also I ended up using a peanut butter chip (like chocolate chips, but the peanut butter ones) instead of the chocolate bark. Worked out nicely.

I plan on making them and freezing them until I’m ready to coat them. If I think of it, I’ll let you know how it goes. I did freeze the ones I made tonight to stiffen up the coating, tasted fine.

Question: The only problem I had was you could see all my finger marks in the coating, am I doing something wrong?

Do you dunk half, let it set up, then dunk the other half? Do you hold them with tongs? I was doing a quick trial batch so I only used 1 little bag, maybe it just wasn’t melted enough? Is the bark easier to work with (I bought it, but didn’t want to break it out for the small batch)?

I have been making these for years but can’t ever seem to get the truffles to come out “pretty” and uniform even with extensive cooling. They always seem to come out as globs.

Also, even with two packages of bark I always seem to run out of bark. Even on low heat the candy seems to harden faster than I get the balls in.

Any suggestions?

Uhh, this might sound extremely dumb and I’m not sure if it has been answered before, but how many oreos are in one packet? Cuz there are many different sizes.

Do these need to stay refrigerated? I am making gift baskets with all kinds of yummy treats for friends and family this year for Chrismas

I am a huge fan!

My first attempt at the truffles tonight and…SUCCESS! I used the peppermint oreos (yummmm!), coated with dark chocolate, and sprinkled crushed candy canes on top. Also made the nutter butter ones, same chocolate and topped with crushed peanuts. Made red velvet and chocolate cake for cake balls but ran out of chocolate (oops!). So, I’ll continue my adventure tomorrow.
I can’t wait to box these up and pass them out at work on Monday :)

Just stumbled upon this….

Did they steal your pictures? Looks awefully similar!

Great recipe though, tried it over the summer. Delish.

Hi! I’ve fallen in love with your oreo truffle recipe and experimented with it a couple different ways. Everyone always loves it! I actually just used them as centers for the cupcake pops you posted with cake balls previously. I am planning on giving them as gifts about 24hrs from now and I wasn’t sure if I need to refridgerate them now or how I should go about packaging them if they are going to go from cold to room temperature. Do you think this will be a problem? Any suggestions? Thanks so much for sharing all you do! You’re an inspiration to all of us experimenters out here :)

Hi, A co-worker made these and told me your website!! These are amazing. I had to make them myself. I did have a hard time dipping them, but I will eventually get the hang of it. I like some of your other recipes I will have to try. Thank you for sharing them with us.
