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?

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.
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”!
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.
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!!
