That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Oreo Truffles

Oreo Truffles are such an easy dessert and always a real crowd pleaser! Why did I wait so long to whip these up?

These truffles are a breeze to prepare, using minimal ingredients and without needing to temper chocolate to make the coating.

Oreo Truffles

I was never a fan of Oreo Truffles till I made them myself.

Nick came home from college with a request from one of his roomies: Oreo Balls. Well, sure, I could make those. I wasn’t exactly thrilled since the ones I’d tasted were unimpressive.

But I had the whole gang home for dinner the day I made these…and boy, did they rave about these babies. I also made the Brown Butter Cookie Dough Truffles and tried to get a clear winner from the crew. They were fans of both…these having a smoother, creamier filling compared with the cookie dough ones with the crunch of mini chocolate chips. So I guess you’ll have to try both and let me know your opinion.

Perfect Holiday or Thank You Gift

Well, as you probably realize, these were supposed to come with us when returning Nick to campus. The pumpkin bread, brown butter coyotas and Italian pasta casserole all made it into the car. About 3 minutes into the trip, I realized the Oreo Truffles were still parked the fridge.

But, coincidentally, the roommate who suggested these ended up behind us as we pulled off the beltway onto the highway leading to the university. I quickly called him to see if he’d take Nick the next leg of the trip, and he immediately agreed.  He saved me over two hours of driving time, so I HAD to mail the truffles as my thanks.

I think they lasted a matter of minutes when they finally reached their destination. I will definitely treat the boys to this easy dessert again soon! It was the perfect thank you gift!

Tip of the day: For the holidays, just dust the truffles with appropriately colored sugar or sprinkles immediately after coating. Wrapping a few in a cellophane bag tied with coordinating ribbon makes a terrific hostess gift.

  1. The sea salt almond dark chocolate bar is on my wishlist! I had this once while in San Francisco and it was amazing! I can’t wait to try it again.

  2. I would stock up on these truffles, they look magnificent 😀


    P.S I seem to have lost around 1000 subscribers on my blog and I don’t know how, so if you were subscribed, could you resubscribe please? it would really help me out!

  3. What a simple and easy gift-which we all need around the holidays!

  4. All of their melting wafers! I have big plans for the holidays to coat everything from cookies to pretzels to truffles and more!

  5. Simple yet very beautiful chocolate truffles!

  6. Gorgeous truffles. Didn’t think it’s so simple to make!

  7. Reindeer Noses! What a wonderful idea for nibbles for Christmas Day. Thank you (I think) for directing me to the Ghirardelli website.

  8. I’d love to get this for a christmas gift. Looks delicious.

  9. These look so good.

  10. These look beautiful. What is the technique to avoid melted choc balls ( or strawberries) from having a “foot”?

  11. Sure love me some Ghirardelli chocolate. Of course, I’d want as many of their baking products as I could get. I have not tried their melting chocolates, so I’ll have to find those around here if I don’t win. 😉

  12. Ghirardelli Mint Cookie is definitely on my wish list! Why? I’d love to incorporate the lovely chocolates into the scrumptious Oreo Truffle recipe you shared. Your family – well, this time your son is very lucky.

  13. I love the 70% dark chocolate but the Christmas peppermint bark is amazing!!

  14. Lizzy,
    I’d get ready for Christmas baking by stocking up on their baking products. I love the Oreo Truffles. You can’t stop at just one.

  15. Phew! How do you stay so skinny?! I could not resist.

  16. so may great choices – the mocha frappe I think

  17. Would love to try their chocolate fudge sauce. And these truffles look great- Oreo desserts are always a winner!

  18. Oreo truffles are scrumptious! I would love to try the Ghiradelli Sweet Ground Chocolate….I think it would be so much fun to experiment with!

  19. White Mocha Frappé is on my wishlist. 🙂

  20. how long do they keep and do they need to stay refrigerated?

    • I’d store them in the refrigerator. I would think they’d keep at least a week…you could freeze to preserve them longer, but I’m not sure if the coating will stay nice and shiny if you do.

  21. Do you think these could be sent in a college finals package or is storing in the refrigerator crucial?

    • I think I’d err on the side of caution and not send them. There is cream cheese in the filling which is perishable,and I’d hate to think of potential food poisoning during finals week. You’re a nice mom! My youngest has his college finals this week.

  22. Stumbled upon this recipe & I’m intrigued by their cuteness, dear! xoxo
