Hey guys. Today I will show you how to make Oreo Truffles recipes to share with your family and friends. Have you ever wanted to make a very fancy little treat, but don’t have the time for that. Well, how about an Oreo Truffles. They look like little beautiful that are delicious, and they are! But they’re no-bake, three ingredients, and they come together so simply. Let’s get started!

This Oreo Truffles recipe is bizarrely simple. The first thing you want to do is crush the Oreos, and you can use a food processor like I am, or pop them into a plastic bag, and just use a rolling pin, or a can or whatever, and smash them up. It’s pretty fun. One fourteen-ounce package in here, and if you’re wondering who these are for, I’m obsessed with Oreo cookies.

All right, I’m going to get this on. It’s not going to be like the instant pot. I actually like leaving some bigger chunks in here, because you get a little crunch. The rest of them kind of like become this like Oreo Truffles situation. But if you have some bigger pieces in, you can have some crunch, and I think that’s wonderful.

Carefully remove this, and we’re going to have our stand mixer now. You can also make this with a hand beater, or hand mixer. Into my stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, I’m adding in 8 ounces of room temperatures cream cheese. I’m going to cream it up a bit first. It is just a bit chilly.

So just cream that up. One of my dream frostings is cream cheese frosting. It’s so good, that I almost never make it because bad things happen. All right. Pop that in here. Oh wait, wait, wait. Hold up. I forgot, I’m supposed to reserve a bit of this, which I’ll do right now. Just a couple of tablespoons, because we’re going to use some of this ground-up Oreo Truffles situation here for decoration at the end. So reserve one or two cookies worth of crumbs, and now we’re going to mix it up on low.

Okay, that’s pretty good. It really just needs to mix up. There’s nothing else that’s happening there. Should I give it a little taste? I haven’t had dinner yet. I’m so… It’s one, crunchy, creamy, sweet, and that cream cheese has that wonderful tang to it. So it’s this really balanced, and your whole mouth is like bursting with joy. We probably have a couple of unmixed pieces in here. We can just do that by hand, I don’t want to over mix this and turn it into an Oreo soup.

See just a bit of extra cream cheese. We can just fold that in. Set this aside now. Remove this situation. Now in your clean hands, what you’re going to want to do is just roll little Oreo Truffles. And they don’t have to be perfect because you can give them like a second roll after you chill them. And you know, no one cares if they’re imperfect anyway. These things are crazy delicious, so just enjoy. And they’re going to look great when they’ve dipped anyway. Do you have to dip these? No, you don’t have to dip these. You could eat them just like this. You could roll them in cocoa powder.

I love seeing little globs of cream cheese poking through too because it reminds me of the Oreo filling. So I get excited. All right, these are all rolled out. I’m going to slide them onto a baking sheet carefully. These are all rolled out. They’re going to go into the fridge to chill, and I’m probably going to do it overnight. Getting a bit late in the day, and those babies need some attention.

So I will see you in the morning, and we’re going to get to dipping these and give you several options for how to finish them. Beautifully. Okay. Those Oreo Truffles were chilling overnight. Not because they had to, but because I was tired, and those little babies needed some attention. In my hand, I have 1 cup of candy melt. We’re going to give these just a rough chop. You don’t really have to, but I want this to melt pretty quickly, and for a nice dipping consistency, you want the candy melt to be pretty thin.

So I might even add a little vegetable oil to it to think it out. So the nice thing about candy melt is that you just pop it in the microwave, you melt it, and then you can dip things in it. You can pour it on, and it forms a hard shell. For chocolate, you have to temper it for that nice crack, and it’s totally an ordeal. I have tempered chocolate before. It’s not the end of the world, but for an Oreo Truffles. Not going to happen. Okay, that’s totally good.

Now pop this into a microwave-safe bowl, and we’re just going to take it on to the microwave on some low bursts. So this candy melt isn’t there yet all the way but giving it a nice mix. There’s a lot of heat on this bowl. Right now I’m adding a few teaspoons of vegetable oil in here, and we’re just going to mix it in really thoroughly, and then pop it back into the microwave. It will really think things out. I don’t want a giant coat of candy melt. I just want like a thin coat.

When you add vegetable oil to candy melt to thin it out, you just have to make sure to really really really mix it well, otherwise, you’ll have little stray bits of oil that clearly will not harden. Already you can see that’s way better. Okay, look at this. This is nice. Nice dipping consistency here. Really smooth, and candy melt, once it’s melted, will stay melty for a good amount of time, and if not, just microwave it for a bit at half power. Got my chilled balls out of the fridge, and now we’re just going to impale them on our skewer. There we go.

I think what we’re going to do is top off the excess, and then place. To decorate them I’m going to do a couple of different things. This is my reserved Oreo bit, so I’m just going to sprinkle a bit of Oreo on top and look at that. A professional from Parisian chocolate. Oreo Truffles. Make sure you sprinkle right away, because the candy melt will dry, and then you won’t be able to have anything adhere to it. So for this one, we’re going to take it off again. Transfer it over. But now, let’s give it a little drizzle of chocolate. It’ll be a nice contrast as well.

I melted a bit of chocolate, just a couple tablespoons is all you need, and you can either put it in a plastic bag, snip the tip-off and squeeze it out, that includes a piping bag, or if you don’t have any of those things for some reason, then you can just spoon it over. You just want to get the drizzle started, and then drizzle it over like that. Whoa.

That will look nice. Thos Oreo Truffles ends up looking really nice. I didn’t temper that chocolate so it will melt in your fingers. So eat them quick. Another easy option is just to add a couple of tablespoons of cocoa powder to a bowl, and you can roll the balls around in them. Just like a regular truffle. Now you have a fancy treat.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 15.25 oz. package, Oreos (any flavor, double stuffed or regular both work)

  • 12 oz. white melting chocolate- (Not chocolate chips, but high quality melting chocolate- I used Baker’s bars)
  • 6 oz. semisweet melting chocolate for topping (Or sprinkles, or Oreo crumbles)

Instructions
 

  • Place the Oreos in a food processor and blend until fine crumbs are formed.
  • Roll about 1- 1 1/2 tbsp of dough into a ball and put aside on a plate or in a container that you can match in the freezer. Freeze the balls for at least 30 minutes.
  • Put the white melting chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, till melted.

Dipping the Oreo Balls:

  • Cover a baking sheet with wax paper. Eliminate Oreo balls from the freezer. Dip them into the chocolate and then roll them carefully using a fork.
  • There is likely one part that’s skinnier, which was the bottom of the ball as it sat in the freezer. Slide the fork beneath the flatter area and lift. Twist the bottom of the fork across the border of the bowl to let the excess chocolate drip off, then set it on top of the wax paper.
  • The chocolate sets fairly quickly from there. Once you’ve spelled refrigerate for a minimum of 10 minutes to place.

Topping the truffles:

  • Melt the semi-sweet chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave, 30 seconds at a time.
  • Dip a fork into the melted chocolate and drizzle it on the Oreo balls. You may make a mess, but that’s a part of the fun!
  • You might also top them with sprinkles or Oreo crumbs right after they’ve been dipped.
