I was never a fan of Oreo Truffles until I made them myself. They are an easy no bake dessert recipe needing only 3 ingredients!

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 in the past 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 no bake dessert balls, one with a smoother, creamier filling and the other with the yummy crunch of mini chocolate chips. If you’re up for a challenge, try both and let me know your verdict.

Well, in a rush to get Nick back to campus, these easy Oreo truffles were left at home. The pumpkin bread, brown butter coyotas and Italian pasta casserole all made it into the car. About 10 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 the Oreo cookie truffles lasted a matter of minutes when they finally reached their destination. I will definitely treat the boys to this easy no-bake dessert again soon! It was the perfect thank you gift!

Tips for Making Oreo Truffles

  • Since Oreo balls are made with cream cheese, they must be stored in the refrigerator. They will keep well for up to 3 weeks in a covered container. If you freeze, they will keep up to 2 months.
  • There are three ways to crush your Oreos. Use your food processor, blender or a Ziploc bag and a rolling pin to smash them. A food processor is by far the quickest and most efficient method for making Oreo crumbs.
  • The cream cheese must be at room temperature if you want to have a homogeneous mixture when you blend.
  • After shaping the balls, chill at least one hour or overnight to allow them to become firm. If you’re in a hurry, you can also freeze for 15 minutes.
  • Use a dinner fork or candy fork to dip your Oreo balls into the melted chocolate.  The should be fully immersed.
  • Tap the fork on the side of the bowl to let excess chocolate drip off, then remove to a parchment lined baking sheet. 
  • After garnishing, chill your Oreo Truffles for about an hour before serving.
  • For the holidays, just dust the truffles with appropriately colored sugar or sprinkles immediately after coating. The melting wafers dry quickly, so garnishing cannot wait.
  • You can also drizzle them with a contrasting color of melted chocolate or top with a few crushed Oreo crumbles, nuts or crushed candies.
  • Wrapping a few in a cellophane bag tied with coordinating ribbon makes a terrific hostess or holiday gift.

    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!

  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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  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 Frappรฉ is on my wishlist. ๐Ÿ™‚

  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

  23. I’ve had oreo truffles that I’ve been less than impressed with also. Until these! Dang, these are good!

  24. I really liked the recipe because you don’t need to temper the chocolate. I always struggle tempering chocolate. This was the best ever recipe I have found ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you.
