NomNom: Oreo Truffles

The whole process of furnishing a new home is a daunting task because it requires a lot of time for researching and shopping. It's been busy this past month with work so my home has been a work in progress, but I'm hoping that by the end of next month (crossing fingers) that I'll be able to formally host a housewarming for my dear friends. I love the thought of entertaining but that obviously goes hand in hand with food (at least for me) so I've been constantly looking through websites or food magazines to get food ideas and I recently came across a recipe for oreo truffles. As much as I love challenging myself with complex recipes, I'm 100% for easy recipes, especially if I have several dishes I need to make for a party. This recipe involves no baking (!!) and it only requires 3 ingredients. You're welcome. 

I'll be doing a lot of testing with recipes to compile for my list of  housewarming party food contenders and will post the ones that I feel are worthwhile for you because I love ya. So with that being said, I'll start with these oreo truffles.

This reminds me of dirt. But it's not.

A couple of things. You can use milk chocolate to cover the truffles but I chose white chocolate because I like the contrasting color it gives and more importantly I LOVE WHITE CHOCOLATE. Also, don't be a noob like me and let the white chocolate harden because when it comes time to garnish the truffles with the remaining cookie crumbs, it won't stick. Yea, that happened. As soon as you dip the balls into the chocolate and set it on the wax paper, sprinkle immediately to ensure optimal stickage. that even a word? Probably not.

Bite sized anything can be dangerous to your figure, especially with these but sometimes you need a little bit of danger in your life. So make and enjoy some oreo truffles and have a great weekend.

Recipe (adapted from Yield: 15 truffles
1 package Double Stuffed Oreos *I used regular oreos
4 oz. cream cheese, softened (you can use up to 8 oz., I just like this consistency better)
Dipping chocolate

1. Chop oreos up finely in a food processor. Save some of the finely crushed oreos for garnish later and set it aside. You don't need too much.
2. With hands (or a spoon, I just think hands are faster), mash softened cream cheese and crushed oreos until well combined.
3. Roll into 1" balls and place on a wax covered cookie sheet. Put in freezer for 15 minutes.
4. While balls are in freezer, melt chocolate according to directions.
5. Pull the oreo truffles out of freezer, and dip into chocolate. I used a fork (to hold the truffles in place) and a spoon to coat with the chocolate. Garnish with reserved oreo crumbs before the chocolate sets up.


  1. This is purely GENIUS. I can't wait to make these! I love new ways to eat Oreo's :)
    Thanks for sharing!


  2. Holy Crap!!! I just died and went to Oreo heaven!
