Easy To Make!

Many years ago I was introduced to a little piece of heaven called the Chocolate Oreo Truffle.  A friend would make them once a year and sell them at a fundraiser auction.  They were always the hot ticket. When I learned how easy they were to make I was shocked!  This delicious piece of candy is only a few ingredients!?  It couldn’t be!

The Grocery List

Your grocery list for this dessert is going to be short!  You’ll need:

  1. chocolate wafer cream cookies – like Oreos
  2. cream cheese
  3. confectioners coating – like Candiquick

Pro Tip – Confectioners coating can be found in the baking aisle of your grocery store.

How Do You Make Chocolate Oreo Truffles?

  1. Crush your chocolate wafer cookies by blending in a food processor or mixer until it is the texture of dirt.  You can alternately place cookies in a large zipper bag and crush with a rolling pin.
  2. Cream your cream cheese with a hand or stand mixer until fluffy.
  3. Add crushed cookies and mix until well combined.
  4. Roll mixture into one inch balls.  Place on a baking sheet and freeze for 20 minutes to ensure they are firm.
  5. Melt confectioners coating (Candyquick) in the microwave according to the package directions.  Usually you heat for 60 seconds, stir, and reheat in 15 second increments until smooth.  Dip each chilled ball into the coating and completely cover.  Place on a sheet of waxed or parchment paper until coating is hardened.  Transfer to an airtight container in the fridge until served.  Will keep 10 days.

Pro Tip #1 – Leave cream cheese on your counter overnight to ensure is is softened for easy blending. If you forget – simply unwrap the cream cheese, place on a microwave safe plate, and microwave for 15 seconds.

Pro Tip #2 – Use two forks to dip the chilled oreo balls in chocolate coating – this will give you control to completely cover the balls and will also keep your fingers clean.

Gussy Them Up

You can leave them simply dipped in the candy coating, or you can decorate the tops for some added beauty.  Here are a few decorating ideas:

  • Top with crushed chocolate wafer cookies before the candy coating dries.
  • Top with a drizzle of a contrasting color of confectioners coating.
  • Top with cocoa powder.
  • Top with sprinkles.

How Do I Store Oreo Truffles?

Oreo truffles contain cream cheese, so it is best if you store them in the refrigerator.  Place them in an airtight container.  Truffles will stay good for 10 days to 2 weeks.  But I promise they’ll be eaten before they go bad!
