Oreo Truffles

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I will be making 3 different dessert recipes for Thanksgiving, one for the actual day (tomorrow) and two for a celebration on Saturday. The first one that I made was oreo truffles. This recipe is so easy and simple. However, people will think it is fancy and that you spent a lot of time making it (win win in my book!) I had heard rave reviews about these Oreo Truffles for awhile now. I believe the recipe originates from Kraft. However, I used the recipe from this blog as a guide as I made them. As I googled this recipe, I found tons of different advice on the best way to make them. The following is what I did. The end results are a very chocolatey, fudgy, delicious truffle. ENJOY!

1 package of Oreo cookies
1 8oz package of cream cheese, at room temperature
2 8 oz boxes of Semi-Sweet Bakers Chocolate


1- Take 5 Oreos and set them aside. Using the remainder, crush them in either a food processor or a ziplock bag (with a rolling pin or by hand) until the cookies are broken into small pieces.
2- In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and Oreo crumbs until there is no more white clumps.
3- Roll the mix into balls (I got about 40 out of this mix... some people get less, some get more... I guess it depends on the size you want).
4- Place the balls on 2 cookie sheets covered in wax paper- refrigerate for one hour.
5- Melt the chocolate, dip each ball into the chocolate. Use two forks to lift the balls out of the chocolate and remove excess chocolate. Return to cookie sheets.
6- Using the 5 reserved cookies, smash them until they form a fine powder of cookie crumbs. Sprinkle the truffles with cookie crumbs before the chocolate sets.
7- Refrigerate until serving.


  1. oooh! these look yummy! :d

  2. This was a big hit at the Turkey day table. By the way, see the sprinkle at the top, that's my handy work.
