Easy Oreo Truffles

Tonight, we’re having a going away party for my roommate, who is moving up to D.C. (I’ll miss you, Stephanie!) There will be drinks and all that good stuff, but I got a specific request to make some oreo truffles. I made some for a long time ago, but I never posted the recipe.

Can I even count it as a recipe? It’s so easy.

Should I admit how easy these are?

I guess I should. Because you probably came here looking for an easy recipe. Well these aren’t really healthy. Sorry. But they are easy!

Easy Oreo Truffles

  • 1 package of Oreo cookies (or any sandwich cookie)
  • 1 8oz package of cream cheese
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)
  • Coconut (or sprinkles, or crushed peanuts, or anything for sprinkling on top!)

Crumble up the entire package of oreos. It would be easiest in a food processor, but I did it in a blender. You could also just smash them up with a rolling pin in a giant ziploc bag. Totally up to you. Mix in your cream cheese. You can do this in a bowl, or toss it into the food processor.

In a separate bowl, melt 2 cups of chocolate chips in the microwave. (Put it on 50% power, and stir every 30 seconds, so they don’t burn!) Next, roll the oreo/cream cheese mixture into balls. Use a fork to dip them into the melted chocolate.

Place them on wax paper, and sprinkle with optional toppings. I did some coconut, some plain. I also wanted to use crushed walnuts but I didn’t have any on hand.

Trust me, these are simple, but they’re pretty much a guaranteed success.

If you’re just super disappointed that I didn’t have a healthy recipe to share… then go check out these Chocolate Oatmeal Bites. It is all about balance, right?

What would you sprinkle on top of some Oreo truffles?

Comments

  1. I love have your recipes always have so few ingredients, the perfect type of recipe for me :)

  2. I’ve had those before at potlucks and stuff. Totally dangerous… I’d eat 6 in a row. “Rich” desserts have no effect on me whatsoever. A blessing and a curse… ha ha

  3. Those sound AMAZING! Do you know if there is anything I could use in place of the cream cheese??? (Should I try to find a dairy-free “cream cheese”??)

  4. Chelsea Eats Treats says:

    Yumm give me anything with cream cheese in it and it’s pretty much a guarantee I will eat every bite ;)

    Where in D.C. is your friend moving?? I can show her around if she needs a friend!

  5. YUM. I want this.

  6. I love these! I’ve never tried making them but I love eating them :-)

  7. Wow- that does sound simple! Recipes with few ingredients are the best. Thanks for posting another one!

  8. Wow these look so good! Do you deliver? :)

  9. I love oreo truffles, but I have to admit we always use white chocolate to coat the outside with. I have seen the chocolate over the net several times. I love that you put coconut on them! I would also like to use shaved chocolate for an adult type gathering and sprinkles for the kiddos :)

  10. ummm amazing. I think nuts on top would be fantastic as well. Next party…these are getting made!

  11. Yum! We actually made these when I was at the beach with my cousins and aunt and uncle!! I was so surprised at how easy they are to make!!

    Can’t wait to see you at the COLOR ME RAD race tomorrow (today). Go VA Bloggers!

  12. Oh my gosh! I didn’t know you were a gymnast! I did gymnastics up until high school. Then I gave it up for allstar cheerleading. I miss those days!!! Well…honestly, I don’t really miss the balance beam haha.

  13. YUMMMMMMM.

  14. YUM! Some things are just not meant to be healthy, and anything Oreo-related falls in that category. I’m going to make these for my brother…which is code for “I need a reason to make these and hence eat them”!

  15. YES! This is one of my favorite recipes of all time. I have made peanut butter and mint versions, too. I like to cover them with white chocolate, sprinkle on coconut, and call them snowballs. :)

    I also once made them with gingersnaps and butterscotch. Yes. I did.
