DIY Oreo Truffles

Oreo truffles are being seen all over blogland, so you may have already seen these before. But the reason they are such a hit is because they both incredibly easy and incredibly delicious. If you haven't tried to make these yet, you really should. They are amazing. I made these and some other chocolate candies for Christmas gifts, but they would also be perfect for Valentine's Day or any other day. Every day is sweeter with chocolate.

Homemade Oreo Truffle Recipe

  • 1 package Oreos
  • 8 oz cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 bag of chocolate chips (to melt for dipping)
  1. Blend the Oreos in blender, or crush into very fine crumbs in a plastic bag with a rolling pin.
  2. In a mixing bowl, blend together softened cream cheese and the Oreo crumbs.
  3. Roll into quarter sized balls.
  4. Place in freezer to chill for at least 15 minutes or more; this helps them stay together better when dipping in melted chocolate.
  5. Melt chocolate in medium saucepan or a double boiler over low heat stirring occasionally until completely melted and smooth.
  6. Dip each Oreo ball in melted chocolate and place on waxed paper, tin foil, or silicone mat to harden.
  7. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
This recipe makes about 3 dozen truffles. If you want to save any for the future or to give away, you should probably hide them in the back of the freezer, or you will eat them all right away. Or maybe that is just what I had to do.
