3 ingredient oreo truffle recipe

First off, let me say that these are some of the richest, most delicious Oreo truffles ever. My roommates and I would make these in college for our girl’s night. We could eat them all back then, between the 6 of us…surprised none of us packed on the “freshman-fifteen” after nights like those. Phew!

Anyway, they are super rich, super chocolatey, super delicious, and suuuper easy! (And only a little messy)

3 ingredient oreo truffle recipe The 3 rich, yet delicious, ingredients are…

8 ounces of cream cheese

1 package of Oreos (about 15 oz) of the regular kind…none of those double/triple stuffed/football shaped/green colored ones. Have you seen all the different types lately? Holy toledo!

16 squares/2 boxes of Baker’s semi-sweet baking squares

3 ingredient oreo truffle recipe Start out by crushing all (except 5) of the Oreos until finely crushed. You can put them in a plastic bag and roll over them with a rolling-pin or smash them with a potato smasher. Or if you have an easier way, do that…and tell me what it is! ;)

3 ingredient oreo truffle recipe Then add the cream cheese and blend until it’s a sticky mess!

3 ingredient oreo truffle recipe Turn that sticky mess into 1-inch balls and place them on a waxed cookie sheet. (Yes, I realize mine doesn’t have wax paper…wish I had remembered it at the store. They would’ve been a lot easier to remove if I had!) ;)

3 ingredient oreo truffle recipe Melt your chocolate squares for dipping. I just stuck mine in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring every 15 seconds until smooth.

3 ingredient oreo truffle recipe Start dipping your Oreo balls! I found that the quicker the better so the hot chocolate doesn’t melt the cream cheese and make the ball fall apart. Forks are good to use to avoid getting chocolate all over…unless you like licking your fingers. ;)

3 ingredient oreo truffle recipe Grab those extra 5 cookies (4 if you snuck one in the process…cause I totally did), crush them a bit, then add the pieces to the tops of the truffles.

3 ingredient oreo truffle recipe Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes then ENJOY!

FYI: This recipe makes about 48 truffles. And, don’t forget to store the left-overs in the refrigerator!

3 ingredient oreo truffle recipe Oh, and here’s my attempt at a Oreo Spider Truffle. His legs are pretzels and eyes are chocolate candies. I thought about making multiple, but after seeing how this one turned out, I realized that I’d leave the cutesy foods to the other girls! ;)

*These are really great as gifts too. Just put them on a plate or in a bag, add a bow or a card, and done! Simple as that!

    I've been making these for years; they are yummy! The easiest way I've found is to dump the Oreos in my food processor to crush them, then add the cream cheese and pulse it all together to mix. After forming the balls, throw them in the freezer for 15 minutes, then when you dip them, the cream cheese won't melt. We have also experimented with the vanilla Oreos with white chocolate dip, peanut butter sandwich cookies dipped in dark chocolate, and the mint cookies, too. The combinations are endless!

      Love the freezer idea so the cream cheese doesn't melt! Genius! I'm excited to mix it up next time with mint cookies! Love those! Thanks for all the ideas Jennifer!

      Four years ago I filled a small truffle box with 1 ea. of four varieties.
      - Chocolate cookie with a dash of cherry flavor, chocolate dip and red sugar sprinkles
      - PB Oreo, choco dip, with golden sprinkles
      - mint oreo, white choco dip and green sprinkles
      - vanilla oreo, white choco dip with reg choco cookie sprinkles on top

      I have been "Friendly forced" to make them every year since! =)

      It's great to make a bunch of boxes and then always have them on hand for co-workers, mail man/woman, daycare, preschool, teachers, friends, family. It won't matter how many boxes you make ... they WILL be gone! =) Make sure to "savor" one for yourself!

    I love making Oreo truffles! I use a blender to crush my cookies, and I use the dark Cocoa chips that you can buy at Joanns. I love the spider idea!!

    Also, if you start with the cream cheese first and slowly add the Oreos, you get a better blend.

    I've made these before, but have not put the crushed Oreos on top. That's a nice way to fancy them up. I also like your spider! It looks creepishly cute! :)

      Aw, thanks Kerri.

    My favorite for these is dipped in the white almond bark. It's a nice contrast in taste and visually-drizzle some chocolate back and forth on top and they are so pretty. I am now wondering how a double dip would taste ... chocolate and then almond bark? hmm ...

      Oooooh, that does sound good! Maybe next time! ;)

    These are YUMMY! First time I ever made them was last year with a friend. She put the Oreos into her food processor and then added the cream cheese. Took no time at all to whip them up. She also makes some with Nutter Butters instead of Oreos.

      Caley says:
      Yes, the food processor is a great idea! I'm doing that next time for sure! Thanks Liz!

    They are super fun! I did them a few months ago for the first time ever and did them with white chocolate as well. I used the food processor too and they were so easy! They turned out delish. I couldn't keep the plates filled at my daughters birthday party!

    Definitely utilize the food processor for crushing the Oreos. I have also used whipped cream cheese- less fat- and it holds us great. I have a box of Oreos on hand for days or weeks I need a chocolate fix. I use a double boiler and dip my balls in to coat then melt a second bath of white chocolate and drizzle on top. Loves great!

    I love these! I host craft days at my house every month or two and last year we made these with the mint Oreos for St. Patrick's Day. I put some green plastic Easter grass in a plastic strawberry container and a few of these with a sticker that said, "Lucky to Know You". They were a hit!

    I use a food processor to make my crumbs as well. My favorite at Christmas time is to use the Trader Jo's Peppermint O's (their version of peppermint oreos) and sprinkle crushed candy canes on the top of the chocolate before it sets.

    I tried substituting more melted chocolate for the phili, it tastes so much better! (and because I am just that naughty :)) but thanks so much for the idea! I did a pin on this too

    I've been making these for years. I too freeze mine for about 15-20 minutes. It makes a world of difference. I also like to add either mint or raspberry extract to the chocolate. And my favorite is adding a little bit of creamy peanut butter to the oreo mixture (don't use peanut butter oreos...not as good!).

    When I make these I use a plastic fork, and break off the middle tines. Makes dipping the balls in the chocolate and getting well coated nice and easy!

    Loved these! Just wondering if you can freeze them after dipped in the chocolate? How well will they keep?

    The best way to make these is using almond bark instead of baking chocolate. It covers them thicker and creates a better taste. I make these for my sorority's bake sales all the time, and everyone says mine are the best!

    My daughter requests these for every birthday. We had them last weekend to celebrate her baptism. (8 is great!) I never put the crumbles on top because our trays are always multi colored. After freezing the balls, I dip them in candy melts. The colors and flavors (mint is my favorite) you can buy are half the fun.

    I've made these before soooo many times and they are seriously addicting! Make with caution for sure, otherwise you'll end up eating the whole batch!

    A few tips for making make the oreo truffles. After making Oreo balls put them in the freezer for an hour so they harden and don't fall apart when you dip in the melted chocolate. Use a toothpick in the top of them to dip into chocolate. Also they look really pretty drizzled with white chocolate.

    Put them in the freezer for a bit before dipping them in the chocolate. Helps keep them from getting all melty. :) I make these every yr, so yummy!
