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
Yield: three dozen truffles

Oreo Truffles


  • 1 package oreo cookies (divided… use cookie including the cream center)
  • 8 oz. package cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 lb. package vanilla candy coating


  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!


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.

  1. I am from Austria/Europe and think the package size of oreo cookies differ from the US. How many cookies did you use in your recipe?

  2. Can I make cake pops with recipe?

  3. Can I use bars of chocolate?? Like Hershey chocolate bars??

  4. you have an amazing weblog here! would you like to make some invite posts on my blog?

  5. i love you bakerella you are amazing!

  6. I love Oreo truffles I first tried them from a class mate now I love making them never tried them with white chocolate. My next task I shall take on.

  7. My mom makes these every year for christmas, and they’re so addicting! I’m not much of a white chocolate fan so we use milk chocolate, but they are fantastic.

  8. I made these and had a blast doing so. They taste delicious but they sure don’t look as pretty. I used the candy melts from Wilton and it was still so thick after melting it. Does anyone have any suggestions on this?

  9. I’m sure someone has asked this but how do you store them and will they stay fresh? I have a shower on Sat the 14 and these have been requested. But I was wondering how early I could make them.


  11. Try same recipe using the Trader Joe’s version of cookie. It has more rich chocolate taste and complements the cream cheese even more.

  12. Do you mix the center cream in with the cream cheese?


  13. Can somebody help me? i tried to do this with chocolate chips but kept failing because the chocolate is too sticky and thick for me to coat it with D: please help?

  14. Where do I get the bark to make these Oreo cake pops?

  15. i made this as well as the Red Velvet Cake Pops for my god daughters birthday party because she loves oreos… they were extremely easy to make and and really good, not overly sweet either. I’m excited to have only recipe that is easy fast and yummy to make. it doesnt take many ingredients which also means that its inexpensive

  16. Instead of cream cheese is there anything else I could use? I have a family member who can’t take anything remotely cheesy (GASP, I know right, NO CHEESE?) . These look absolutely wonderful btw, i got all excited just reading about it :D

  17. These were delicious! I stumbled upon your website shortly before Valentines day this year and decided to make a few things for my boyfriend. I loved these the most :) Thanks!

  18. Bakerella, I am thinking of making mini Easter eggs with these – can i add food coloring to the white chocolate to get different “eggs”?

  19. Love this so much! i just shared this in my blog!

  20. These are amazing!!! I made a test run tonight and they turned out great.

  21. how many oreo cookies does one package contain? :)

  22. Oh my giddy aunt, these look amazing! Too bad we dont have any Oreos in the house. Or maybe good thing, I don’t think I would stop at just one…

  23. I’m making these for the Super Bowl on Sunday! Can’t wait – they look amazing. What a great idea! I am nervous about dipping the football shapes without getting finger marks all over them. Any tricks?

  24. Hey Bakerella,
    Yum! I’m making these right now! Just curious- I made the Oreo mixture for the footballs, but they’re very oily. Are they supposed to be like that? If you can, reply soon! :)

    Thank You!!!!!

  25. I make them on a stick as it is more beautiful.Everyone who has eaten it always asks me for more and for the recipe.It’s the most delicious and easiest dessert ever!

  26. Tips on how to make these into lollipops?

  27. “(divided… use cookie including the cream center)”

    what does this mean? Do i take out the cream in the center? or crush the whole cookie, even with the cream in the center?

  28. These are delicous! I use vanilla chips or white chocolate because I don’t like regular chocolate (but I like oreos.) I know kinda strange. But these things are sooooooooooo delicous!

  29. HI bakerella!
    I am about to make these! (I am VERY excited!)
    and, I was wondering if maybe you can change the way you can see comments… If there could be a button you could click where you could see all of the comments at once, instead of pages, that would be very helpful!

  30. My Fiance is deployed and he loves the goodies that I will make him…. I am just wondering, with the ingredients in these, is there any way to substitute the stuff that will go bad with something else that.. wont? lol He is addicted to Oreos and I know he would love this if I could just find a way to ship them without them going bad.

    -Thank you all so much for your help!


  31. How long will these last if refrigerated?? Thanks so much I’ve been searching for an answer everywhere :)

  32. I have been making these for a few years now, and love them more and more every year! I just finished this years batch and topped them with oreo crumbs for half, and the other half with christmas nonpariels. Mmmm. Can’t wait to eat my one sample! Oh! And I had some leftover white chocolate and crumbs left and made a mini bark and threw in a handful of mini m&ms :)

  33. I made these, too, and they were a huge success! I’m not sure how many vegans you know, but my mother just became one within the past 3 years. She hasn’t lost her sweet tooth, though. Most people don’t realize that oreos are actually vegan – I slightly varied the recipe using

    Tofutti (vegan cream cheese) &
    Ghiradelli semi sweet chocolate chips (yes, she’s figured out how to get her chocolate fix in any circumstance!).

    So they were completely vegan & my mom LOVED them! Just figured I’d let you know that it’s an option! Thanks. :)

  34. I found an old post by Jenny from Picky Palate… It led me back to you… I’m a huge fan, but hadn’t found these before. Needless to say, I didn’t have mint oreos but did have the andes baking chips at home. Melted those for the chocolate coating… Talk about amazing! Thanks so much for your creativity! Just love it and your book!

  35. I am confused where does the cream from the oreos go? Do you mix it with the cream cheese and then the cream cheese mixture with the crunched up oreos?

  36. These are amazing ! so yummy

  37. I Just tried these! I was making these for my halloween party tomorrow! I was making them orange and then putting pumpkin faces on them…. however, I had a hard time dipping them in the chocolate. I will have to keep trying!

  38. Thanks so much for sharing my co workers, friendsand I absolutely love these. AMAZING!!!

  39. Delicious, may favorite easy recipe ever!

  40. hi angie i really lov ur cake pops but the probs is back here in mumbai,India i dont whr to buy candy coatings from can u plz find out n let me knw.i will b thankfull to u….n can these cake pops be made only for kids party n all or even for adults..thx

  41. My best friend taught me to make these in highschool! Super easy, and pretty cheap! We generally used fondu chocolate in white and dark. My favorite was white chocolate with dark chocolate swirls!

  42. I made your Red Velvet Cakeballs last weekend and I’m making these Oreo Truffles tomorrow. Yum!!! Great recipes :)

  43. I *just* made these. I didn’t get my cookies as finely crushed as yours, but I sure tried! I did one thing differently… I used mini Oreos, because I wanted to make a very small batch. I then topped each truffle with a mini cookie after tipping it. They are adorably cute, and wonderfully delicious. Thanks for posting this… almost 4 years ago. :]

  44. OmG tHeSe LoOk DeLiCiOuS!!!!!!!!!!

  45. Bakerella I just happened across your site the other day and I’m so happy I did! You have some of the absolute cutest ideas I have ever seen. Thank you very much for sharing, my family loved the truffles!

  46. Just made these…so amazingly delicious!

  47. Hi,
    what is chocolate bark? I’ve never heard of it or seen it. And is there a substitute i can use?

  48. If I can not find kroger chocolate bark what is another type or brand you recommend?

  49. These look d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s

  50. Planning a budgit wedding & doing a dessert table instead of a big cake these AND your red velvet cake balls are PERFECT! Can’t wait thanks for the ideas! Keep them coming!

  51. Hi! Just wanted to know if I can substitute the white chocolate bark for something else? Don’t think I can find any here in Malaysia :) Hope you can help, would loveee to make these!

  52. Have a couple of questions has anyone found the chocolate bark anywhere besides Kroger? Also do I take the cream out of all of the cookies?

  53. I’m making these for an surprise party for an friend.
    I’ve made them before for my mom for mother’s day
    and she was so shocked I made them. I’m an college
    student and I love to cook but not cook desserts there
    so hard, but not this. It has little ingredients and takes
    30mins to make :D!
    I’ve never even heard of these before till this site —
    thanks for sharing and keep sharing you’re recipes
    there all delicious ! ESPECIALLY THESE ! :D!


  54. Try using extracts or candy flavoring with the regular oreos… the possibilities are endless! Myfavorites are rum and mint.

  55. is there any chance to replaze cream cheese?

  56. So u take the cream off the Oreo??

  57. Just made 4 batches of these tonight for work. They look and taste beautiful! I did use semi-sweet chips thinned w/ a little veg. oil because I couldn’t find almond bark and I don’t like the candy melts from Michaels. I drizzled the mint ones w/ some white chips tinted green and the regular ones w/ white chocolate. Love them! Also made the brownie stuffed chocolate chip cookies. YUM!!! Diet be damned :-)

  58. I like this Oreo truffles very much, but cream cheese is kind of expensive. Is there anything I can replace it with in this recipe?
    Thank you!

  59. Joselyn- Kroger is a name of a store- so it is a store brand like Great Value is to Walmart. We just used regular chocolate chips morsels with the 1 tbsp of Crisco shortening [per cup of morsels] over the double broiler.
    [I also used generic Oreo type cookies.]

  60. Does anyone know where I can get the Kroger coating chocolate?!
    Is it easily found at target or perhaps Ralphs?

  61. I made this recipe with mint oreos before I saw this site. I called them Grasshopper Truffles. Tastes phenomenal, will ry andes mints chips for chocolate covering next time

  62. I want to make these in the bee shapes for my sons 1st birthday and was wondering how to store them. I didn’t know if i could roll the balls ahead of time and freeze for a few days prior to adding the coating or what…just wanted to do as much as I could ahead of time…thanks!

  63. What size bag of Oreos did u use? Cause here in Canada we have multiple sizes lol

  64. I was wondering if these would work as pops? I am making Minnie Mouse pops for my niece’s 2nd birthday next weekend and we would all prefer to have the oreo and cheesecake combo than cake as there will already be a cake for the party. I’d appreciate any tips on how to make this work =)

  65. Ahhh my mother makes these every year for the holidays. They always go fast in our family, so you better be quick because they don’t stick around long. They are excellent.

  66. if i can only find baking chocolate, how would i go about to coat the oreo balls? I’m a first time baker! :D

  67. just discovered your recipes there awsome gonna try them for my sons wedding, gonna make a dessert table with alot of your recipes…..THANKS A MILLION!!!!!!!!

  68. These Oreo Truffles were a BIG HIT on our last camping trip! Camping in an RV, fridge space is tight, these were the perfect size! Made for a perfect dessert after a full day of outdoor activities and time around the campfire! Thank you for sharing this recipie! Trying the 14 layer cake tomorrow!

  69. could I put these on sticks like cake pops?! Oreo truffle pops?!

  70. When I made the cake pops they cracked after I dipped them in chocolate. What am I doing wrong? Thanks Debbie

  71. I didn’t have the dipping chocolate when I made these, but I wanted to roll them in something so I threw some candy canes in a food processor and rolled the truffles in the candy cane “dust.” it gave it a christmas-y feel (I was making them for a christmas party) and added the mint taste that you could also get from Mint Oreos. they were delicious!

  72. sorry i’m confused because it says divided. do i only use the halves with the cream and not the other half of the cookies? or just mix everything together?

  73. Hi,

    I found your blog the other day and spend 2 hours just looking at your amazing recipes.
    My eyes got stuck on the wonderful pictures that come with the recipes. Really awesome.

    I got one Question. since I’m from Germany and we dont get all these ready to go mixes f.e. the 8 oz cream cheese frosting to mix into the crushed Oreo’s, can I use the cream cheese frosting from the Red Velvet Cake frosting? And should I just use the amount you use in there and mix it into the Oreo’s or just half?

    thanks alot

  74. Bless you… these are so amazingly good and easy! I made some chocolate mint cakeballs yesterday, but have been meaning to try these oreo truffles, so I figured while I was rolling and dipping, I might as well – I have to be honest… I think I love these more than cake balls, but it could be because they don’t require nearly as much time to make.
    I brought them to work today and had people bowing down to me… Thanks for another awesome recipe!

  75. Do you think using peppermint bark for the coating would be okay ?

  76. Stephanie: I used my blender to crush my Oreos because I don’t have a food processor. Don’t use a ziploc bag and crush them by hand, you’ll never get them fine enough. The blender works perfectly.

  77. I just made these and they changed my life. So. Good.

    My only problem is that my chocolate bark coating doesn’t look as thick as yours so some of the black Oreo shows through the white coating. Oh well, doesn’t change the flavor-yum!

  78. Can I make a suggestion? Are you able to put the weight of the oreos packet used. I live in Australia and when I made the recipe I used 1 packet like the recipe said. But the mix was way too gooey.
    I think here in Australia we have smaller packets of Oreos than you have. I ended up using 2 packets to make it look anything like the mixture in your photos.
    They turned out though in the end and were fantastic.
    Thanks so much!

  79. A dear mother of one of my first graders made these for me for Valentine’s Day, oh my goodness, they were wonderful! And now I’m delighted to find the recipe! Thanks!

  80. How do you crush the oreo so finely with the cream still inside? I don’t have a food precessor, so I plan on mashing it inside a ziplock bag with a boot. :(

  81. Can you use melts for dipping these Oreo bites? I see everyone talking about the bark so I’m wondering.

  82. Made these for the first time and they were a total hit! I made them for Valentine’s Day and brought them into my work and gave them to loved ones. They were delicious and easy to make. The only part that was a little tricky was covering the truffles in the melted chocolate…after the 5th ball or so you get the hang of it. Thanks Bakerella for helping me impress my coworkers & friends!

  83. as soon as i read this blog of urs today, i’ve made some of these oreo truffles & it’s my 1st time… i make 32pcs & dipped it in white chocolate drizzled w/ pink , it turned out GREAT!! my kids love it, eye-catching 4 the kids…………
    Thank you f or sharing your ideas to everyone, more power to u.. God Bless

  84. my hubbers & I looooove your kitchen adventures! He’s been DIEING to make your cupcake pops…needless to say I’m gonna whip these up for a cute Valentines Day ‘bouquet’ for him @ work. I’m thinking about drizzling red and pink tinted chocolates and tossing them on a stick into a small mouthed vase…THANKS! I’ve been looking for something that won’t embarrass him @ work on the big ‘girley’ day.

  85. I don’t like cream cheese… Is there a substitute?

  86. We made colorful versions for Gamma Phi Beta sorority recruitment in college (over 400; eep!). They were super super good, and we got so many compliments on them! Thank you so much for posting them!

    If you want to take a peek, I took pictures;

  87. What size are the Oreo packs that you use? I had to use 2 x 175g packs to get the consistency right. Just wondering :)

  88. If you have chocolate chips on hand and are too lazy to go to the store, (like me) consider making a ganache instead. Just had some cream to the chocolate. This makes a thicker, richer coating. I might never dip these in plain bark again!

  89. I have not had much success dipping ANYTHING in melted white chocolate either. Candy coating is much better. I had a mad sticky mess my first try.

  90. In reference to my first question, I’m trying to make the oreo footballs, but don’t know what to use for the piping??

  91. First time making pops, What are the directions for the piping?? What tools do you use?? Do I use any kind of white icing??

  92. I have discovered your wonderful ideas from your book I recieved for a Christmas present. I love the concept and having fun trying everything. Thanks!!!

  93. Ummm so do u crush oreos, with everything in them< then mix them with creme cheese?

  94. Hi. How many cookies do we need actually?

  95. OMG i made them using ur directions it was so amazing!

  96. Very good idea but you should include the number of Oreo cookies to use in the recipie. There are two sizes to the Oreo bags. If you are refering to the 350g then it is 30 cookies. I am about to try it right now!

  97. yum,yum.ohohohohoh so delicious…..this i’m going to try for New Year’s Eve……so yummy…..and i’m giong to try with cameo, my aunt is alergic to chocolote and ask if I could do some with cameo…..hope they turn out good……i’ll let u know….
    ps….i’m a huge fan of u. I hav’ all of my fam and friends esting cake balls and cake pops.Did some for my girls xmas party and the kids loved them….thanks for those recipes keep doing what ur diong… wishes….

  98. I have adapted this recipe a lot. I have used Oreos, Nutter Butters, Mothers Double Fudge sandwich cookies, Mothers Vanilla Creme cookies and even EL Fudge sandwich cookies. So far, everything has turned out incredible.

  99. I just gave my cousins Oreo cake balls and they loved them!

  100. Ohmygawd. I was searching for Oreo truffles and came across a Flickr pic of yours and finally came across your website. Very awesome photography, I might say, and it certainly looks yummy, will make it with my friends tomorrow :) thank you!

  101. We made Oreo and Nutter Butter cake balls.
    We hope they taste good.
    Your cake balls look beautiful!
    Thank you for the recipe.

  102. 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.


  103. 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 :)

  104. Just stumbled upon this….

    Did they steal your pictures? Looks awefully similar!

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

  105. Thanks so much for all your wonderful ideas. Can’t wait to bake.

  106. 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 :)

  107. 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!

  108. 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.

  109. 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?

  110. Tried the oreo cookie with the peanut butter chip coating…. awesome!

  111. 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)?

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

  113. 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!

  114. These were a huge hit at our Halloween/bday party!

  115. i really want to make these as part of my christmas baking, do they freeze well??

  116. These Truffles are delicious. I gave my nephew truffles for Birthday aswell as my friend and they loved it. It´s a big hit :)

    I love you and your blog, you are genius :) You have really been an inspiration for me :)

    Best regards,
    Rakel, from Iceland :)

  117. i’m in the UK could you tell me the weight of a packet of oeros in the US i tried to make these but didn’t get too many i think your packets must be bigger than ours! everythings bigger in the US!

    many thanks xx

  118. 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.

  119. I don’t live in the Us and don’t get the bark. What can i use instead. Thank you.

  120. Hi Bakerella…I am just in love with your website…
    I am planning my daugheter’s first birthday and browsing around found you!!Lucky me!!
    How far ahead can I make the oreo truffles and the pop cakes??

  121. I am a teacher. One of my parents made these for me recently.

  122. 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 :)

  123. Would like to know how many Oreo cookies are avaliable in 1 Packet, since 6 Oreos are avaliable in the packets out here.

  124. 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?

  125. 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!

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

  127. paraffin WAX

  128. 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.

  129. 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!

  130. I love this website so much! I am very happy that you have this recipe on here, because I’ve always wanted to make these but never known how.

  131. taste delicious!! the were a huuuge hit at our family party! love em..its a keeper 4 sures!!

  132. I am new to Bakerella and i’m kicking myself for not miraculously stumbling onto your website sooner!
    Oh my gosh! Where do i start!? I want to make EVERYTHING!
    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!!! :)

  133. 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!!

  134. 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.

  135. Hi, i just wanted to know instead of using Cream Cheese can i like chocolate icing or something like nutella?

  136. Can you use these as pops?

  137. Oh my gosh! First time on here and I am in love with all the recipes, I have been wanting to make some cake pops and came across this recipe and now I am craving these!! I can’t wait to make them, I love to bake, and I am always looking for new things to create for parties, etc. I don’t know if anyone has asked this question….where can I find the bark? Thank you!

  138. I made these using the Strawberry Milkshake Oreos and strawberry cream cheese. They were a HUGE hit!

  139. I make these with mint oreos and then dip them in melted Andes Mint chocolates. Very minty and very good. I also melted green chocolate melts and drizzled in zig-zag lines across the top of the balls. The Andes mints melt perfectly they are melt thin and coat perfectly! :-)

  140. Ok, these are seriously to die for good! Made them last night and can’t get enough! I also made vanilla cake balls, delicious! What a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

  141. 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?

  142. I love these things. Plus, they’re so easier to make! Check out mine:

  143. I tried these with peanut butter Oreos, and they are incredible! Thanks for the great recipe!

  144. Ooh, I can’t wait to try and make these! I’m going to buy a chunk of white Callebaut at the store and dip up!

  145. Hi,

    This may be a silly question but, at what stage do you put the lollipop sticks in? I wanted to put these on sticks.


  146. Bakerella!

    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! :)

  147. HI I’ve made these many times but with plain melted dark chocolate, i’ve never tasted chocolate bark or even worked with it, is it any good?

  148. Do they have to be refridgerated for health safety reasons before serving? Or can they be served at room temp?

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

  150. 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.

  151. 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!

  152. Hi! Love the recipe, but are you using a 1lb 2 ounce package of cookies (three sleeves?)

  153. 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!!!

  154. 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!

    i just made my first tonite and i think i’ve put on 10lbs on already haha!
    they are delish!

  156. 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!

  157. Everyone LOVES these at our school. They’re probably the most prized possession of anyone who has them. They’re worth more than gold to almost anyone who wants one (which is everyone!)

  158. i wonder what this would taste like with the golden oreos and strawberry cream cheese and white chocolate. hmmm…? get to work on that and let me know ;) lol

  159. These were absolutely delicious. Made them for a whole class–you could say they were VERY well received.

  160. These are so cute.
    But I am not a fan of cream cheese, so I was wondering if there was anything I could use to substitute the cream cheese?

  161. 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 :)

  162. 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!

  163. 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

  164. 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!

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

  166. 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

  167. 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.

  168. 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?

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

  170. 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:)

  171. 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.

  172. 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!

  173. 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!


  174. 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

  175. 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!!

  176. 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

  177. 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 [:

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

  179. 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~!

  180. 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!!

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

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

  183. 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!

  184. 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. :)

  185. 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!

  186. 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?

  187. 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)

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

  189. 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. :)

  190. 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!

  191. 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!

  192. 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?

  193. 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 :)

    bye Tine

  194. 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!!!

  195. 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!!

  196. 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!

  197. 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!!!

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

  199. 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
