Sweet Treats – Oreo Truffles

Last year I saw lots of blogs featuring Oreo Truffles.  I never did give them a try but thought they looked and sounded amazing!  Last week my friend Tricia asked me to help with a big church dinner coming up and she wanted me to make Oreo Truffles.  I was so excited because they had been on my To Try list for over a year!

So I made 175 Oreo truffles – minus the few that I ate!  Initially I thought 175 truffles was going to take a while but they are so SIMPLE and EASY to make it didn’t take much time at all!!

Some of the recipes floating around out there in blogland have you dip the truffle into chocolate after making them which I am sure would be wonderful – especially if it was white chocolate.  But I just rolled them in more crushed up Oreo and they are divine!!

My husband said they looked like little balls of dirt and they do – but they don’t taste like dirt!

I am not going to tell Tricia how many I ate before delivering them to her house.  We started out with about 175 but I’m not sure how many were there by the time they were delivered!!

Here are the easy steps to making Oreo Truffles – I will definitely be making another batch next week for Valentine treats!!  Hope my neighbors like them!

I have cut the recipe down – this version only makes about 40 truffles instead of 175!

Step One:

Crush 9 of the Oreos in the blender and reserve for later.

Step Two:

Crush remaining 36 Oreos  and keep them separateoreo truffles (1)

Step Five:

Mix until thoroughly blended together.

Step Six:

Form cream cheese/Oreo mixture into about 1 inch sized balls or slightly smaller.  Roll into the reserved crushed Oreo.  If you are going to dip them in chocolate you do not need to roll them in the remaining cookie crumbs.

Step Seven:

Place on cookie sheet and refrigerate until firm.

    we make these every year for teachers – the kids LOVE doing it – and we dip them in all sorts of different things…white and milk chocolate, drizzle with the opposite color…sprinkle with powdered sugar…they are great for the kids – and YUMMY, too…happy truffles!

    So, you don’t even have to scrape the cream out of the middle, right?

    It is my birthday today and I asked readers on my blog to pledge to do something to make the world a better place today. I consider this recipe a stellar contribution to the planet :D THANK YOU! Thanks for making our world a better place in so many ways!

    Kirsty says:

    PS: You could also roll them in coloured sugar (red/pink/white) to make them look less like dirt. Although that dirt looks plenty appetizing to me :) :)

    What a fantastic idea to roll them in crushed oreos instead of dipping in chocolate. I’m definitely trying that next time. You are so creative – I love it!

    I’m also planning to include frosted sugar cookies and white chocolate fudge with the pink/red/white M&M’s mixed in–so pretty & tasty.

    Do these need to be refrigerated?

    Yes – because there is cream cheese in them they do need to be in the refrigerator. That is if any last long enough to make it!

    I saw a super fun recipe in this months Ladies Home Journal. It’s for “Passion Pops” I’ll email you the picture of them. You melt caramel squares (or the little bits they make now) And scoop small dollops of the caramel in between 2 Nilla Waffers. Stick a sucker stick in the caramel. After it has set up some you dip the whole thing into melted chocolate. Decorate with Valentine sprinkles.

    Wow, I’ve never heard of these, but they look to-die-for! I just perfected a gluten-free version of oreo cookies, and have a few still in my freezer. I might have to give this recipe a whirl! Thanks for posting it!

    It’s so funny you call them dirt balls, that’s what my husband call them too.

    My SIL Rachel made these with peppermint oreos and they were fantastic! I had to get away fast so I wouldn’t eat all of them.

  25. 25

    I made these and they were delicious and a big hit. I used double stuffed oreos. I don’t know if that makes a difference or not. Now, whenever I go to the store I make sure to pick up some oreos and cream cheese so I have the ingredients on hand whenever I crave the yummyness of this tasty dessert. Todd and Everson both loved them. Everson wouldn’t stop asking for more!

    I used my smalled Pampered Chef scoop and only got 37 dirt balls. Your scoop must be really tiny.

    Shelli says:

    Hi, Leigh Anne–

    Two quick questions…my sister has requested I make these for her daughter’s wedding (yes, they are a hit in our family!), so I am making about 200. When you made your large batch, how many packages of oreos and cream cheese were you able to mix at once? Also, have you ever tried freezing these, and if so, was it a success? Thank you so much!

    Leigh Anne says:

    @Shelli:

    I have never frozen them but think they should be fine. You can freeze cheesecake so think these would be the same. Here’s the large quanity recipe – have fun!
    Oreo Truffles

    120 Oreos (14 per package in Costco pack)
    32 oz. cream cheese, softened

    Crush about 25 Oreos in food processor to fine crumbs. Set aside for rolling. Crush remaining cookies. Add cream cheese. Mix until well blended. Roll into small balls ~1” in diameter. Roll in reserved cookie crumbs. Refrigerate. This should make 150-200 truffles, depending on the size. The goal is have them be bite-size. All measurements are approximate, depending on how much cream cheese vs. oreo flavor you like. You can also dip them in white or dark chocolate instead of rolling them in crumbs.

    Well, I think I must have done something wrong . . . but this recipe is so easy that it should have been impossible to make a mistake! They were too sweet for us – even for our grandkids, who are lovers of anything Oreo.
    Maybe I made them too big? Oh dear! Did anyone else have this experience?

    Do these have to stay refrigerated since there is cream cheese in them? I plan on making them the night before a party.

    Jerrick has been making these for a while, but just tried a new variety by dipping them in melted Andes Mint Chocolates. I don’t go crazy over the regular oreo balls, but the minty version is so yummy it ought to be a sin! BTW, I found your blog on a google search and then realized “Hey, I know Leigh Anne!” Hope all is well.

    Karen says:

    Hi! I will be making these as favors for our daughters wedding. There will be 133 guests and I will dip one in chocolate and one in white chocolate and put them in a little box. How many days in advance can I make them? I know I need to refrigerate until the wedding.

    I make them every year for Christmas presents. I think they look like cute, little lumps of coal. My family calls them reindeer poop. My husband even found a bowl with reindeer on it to showcase the reindeer poop at our family dinner!

    Shelby says:

    These are Grumpy’s favorites! Its been a couple of years since I’ve made them – but my DIL makes them all the time for special occasions. Whenever he gets his hands on them, he eats them all by himself!

    I like your idea of rolling them in oreo crumbs. I made these and had massive issues with the chocolate coating. They came out so ugly, it was embarassing.

    I don’t think they look appealing rolled in Oreo crumbs. I’m not sure I’d even reach for one. I personally prefer the chocolate coating (and way easier if you use the Candi-Quik variety sold at supermarkets). Also, if you leave your cream cheese out until softened, there is no need to bust out your Kitchen Aid. You just mix the cream cheese and crushed oreos as if your kneading bread dough. I make these all the time and haven’t met a single person who didn’t think they were really labor-intensive!
