Oreo Truffles


I think Oreos are pretty awesome. The chocolate cookie. The creamy center. They are great. My mom only bought Oreos every now and then, and I would beg for the double stuff, but I never won. Either way, I was happy to have a handful of Oreos and a glass of milk available to me. So when my Mom came to me with this recipe for something called Oreo Truffles, I was intrigued. In the beginning, we would only make these at Christmas and include them in our usual holiday baking repertoire.  They have now evolved into delightful novelties for baby showers, birthday parties, and other special occasions. The picture above is of some Oreo truffles that I made for a co-worker's baby shower. I thought they turned out pretty cute. I love pink and brown.


These are some truffles that I made for my daughter's first birthday party we had last Saturday. I attempted to make ladybugs since the theme for the party was ladybugs. I wasn't too impressed with my skills, but to be fair, I did do this at midnight.

I couldn't resist. I had to post a pic of the little one with her birthday cake. First taste of cake and frosting. So maybe staying up past midnight making Oreo Truffles was worth it!!


Oreo Truffles

1 pkg. of Oreo
1 8oz. cream cheese, softened
Almond Bark or any candy coating


Put the whole package of Oreos in the food processor and pulse until they make a fine crumb. Then add the softened cream cheese and pulse until it makes a dough. Chill the dough for about 15-30 minutes. It makes it easier to handle. Then roll into bite-sized balls and dip into the melted candy coating. Place on waxed paper and let dry or place in fridge for a quicker set up.  Enjoy!

  2. Sarah,
    I just bought the colored candy coating melts. You can find them at Micheal's, Hobby Lobby, or any craft store.
