Oreo Truffle Balls

Oreo Truffle Balls

I  heard of these Oreo truffle balls from some friends, and it seemed too easy.  I decided to make these one year because my father in law LOVES Oreo cookies. Turns out that these are a crowd pleaser that the whole family loves! We now make these every year as one of our go-to Christmas cookies.

Prep Time 15 mins
Servings 20 Cookies

Equipment

  • Food processor
  • Double Boiler

Ingredients
  

  • 1 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 Package Oreo cookies
  • 1-2 11 oz white chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Place your Oreo cookies in a food processor and grind until there are no large pieces left.
  • Add the cream cheese to Oreos and mix until combined and a clump of dough forms. (Note: if you have a smaller food processor, you can do this step in two batches by doing half of the Oreos and cream cheese at a time.)
  • Get out a cookie sheet and wax paper (or a silicone baking mat). Using your hands, form balls of the dough. You can make them however big or small you want, but these can be pretty rich. I usually make my balls about an inch in diameter.
  • Place the formed dough balls in the freezer for 10 min. This step is really important because you will be putting the dough balls in hot white chocolate and this step helps the dough balls stay together.
  • Melt your white chocolate over a double boiler. Be careful not to burn it (yes, it’s possible even over a double boiler).
  • Place a dough ball in the white chocolate and use a spoon to cover it completely. Repeat with the rest of the dough balls. I will be honest, my truffles always come out not the prettiest (still working on my technique). But we keep making them because they are so good!
  • Decorate your Oreo truffles with sprinkles or whatever you like.

In Christ,

  1. Hi, Heather,

    I have some ideas about how not to get Oreo mixed into the white chocolate Addis oloring it.

    Perhaps cool the cookies completely would help? Otherwise, put the cookies on a wire rack, on top of parchment or your silicon mat,, and simply ladle chocolate over each cookie on the rack? (The collected chocolate underneath could be broken up into warm milk or even stirred into coffee, to recycle it)).

    I am wondering if the chocolate pieces could be microwaved in a glass measuring cup and poured over? I am not sure if microwaving, say, half a bag of chips at a time, would contribute to a burnt taste, though. If it did not, then people without a double boiler could use this recipe. NOTE: I have no experience if using a microwave is a good idea or not!

    These are amazing! I don’t normally love Oreo cookies because they’re over the top sweet, but the cream cheese makes it the perfect sweetness!!!

  3. Heather,I am banned on You Tube, or I would have commented there. I have an ORIGINAL idea of how to continue celebrating during the 12 days of Christmas, that came to me,because I was focusing on finally getting the order right in the song! So…for Day 5 of Christmas: onion ring day! Either going out for some, or making them at home, because of the traditional gift of five golden rings. Like it? Pass it on!

    As for your planner…where all planners fail, probably because of cost, is that they are never big enough to comfortably write in. I need a school notebook sized journal. I would rather have a floppy book, than hard bound, if I had more space to write!

    Thank you, and Happy and Blessed 2022

    I made these this past Christmas and they were a huge hit! They are going to be my new ‘tradition’ for Christmas cookies. Super easy for me as I have 2 little ones under 2!
    I substituted the white chocolate chips for semi-sweet chips (personal preference) and if you buy double stuffed Oreos you don’t even need the cream cheese!

    I have made these for years (except I totally cool them in the fridge and use Ghirardelli white Chocolate Wafers and melt them in the microwave). Totally a favorite in out house we make at Christmas.
    We actually got the recipe from mu bachelor brother. He had then at a work function and actually hunted the lady down for the recipe. Unheard of for him lol.
    Everyone will be pleased with these I’m sure.
