Oreo Truffles are a decadent dessert that are super easy to make! In fact, you only need 3 ingredients to make these easy chocolate truffles.
What’s in this Oreo Truffles Recipe?
You only need 3 common ingredients to make these Oreo truffles. You may even have an ingredient or two at home already.
- Oreos: Form the base of these truffles and give them that classic cookies and cream flavor.
- Cream Cheese: Helps bind the Oreo crumbs together and adds a creamy, tangy flavor.
- Melting Chocolate: Holds everything together, creating a crunchy outer shell.
Pro Tip: Make sure that you take out the cream cheese an hour before you plan to make these truffles. Your cream cheese must be soft before you mix it in.
Variations on Oreo Truffle Balls
You can easily change up the flavor of these truffles by using different kinds of Oreos. Try Golden Oreos, lemon, toffee crunch, chocolate hazelnut, mint, or birthday cake! Switch up the melting chocolate to match. You can use dark, semisweet, milk, or white chocolate.
Colored melting chocolate is a great way to give a hint to the flavors inside. Use yellow for lemon and green for mint, and add colored sprinkles to plain white chocolate for birthday cake!
Trademark Note: In the spirit of transparency, I want to note that some of these ingredients are trademarked products. Oreo is a proprietary brand that I want to acknowledge and give credit to.
These Oreo truffles will stay fresh for up to 2 weeks stored in the fridge. You will want to keep them in an airtight container such as a Tupperware or a Ziplock bag.
Yes, you do need to keep any leftover truffles in the refrigerator. These truffles have cream cheese in them, so to keep them fresh, you need to keep them cool.
You can carefully drop your truffle in the chocolate and use a fork to roll it around. You can then use the fork to pull it out and drip off any excess chocolate.
How to Store

These Oreo truffles are the perfect addition to any cookie tray. Serve them alongside classic chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, brownie cookies, or keep the Oreo flavor going and pair them with Oreo Ice Cream or Oreo stuffed cookies!

- This recipe makes 28 truffles using the a 1½ inch scoop.
- If you don’t have a food processor, place the cookies in a large bag and crush them until they are a fine powder. Remove or crush any large pieces. Add the crumbs into a large bowl and stir in the cream cheese.
- I use a 1½ inch portion scoop, which I feel is the perfect size. If you want a smaller single bite truffle, make them about 1 inch in size. I wouldn’t suggest going too much bigger than 1½ inches in size.
- You can dip these in any color of melting chocolates for theme parties or holiday events. I made a truffle tree using a styrofoam tree and attached them with toothpicks. It was the perfect way to serve them at a party!
- Make sure that you take out the cream cheese an hour before you plan to make these truffles. Your cream cheese must be soft before you mix it in.
- You can also use a toothpick to help cover the truffles in chocolate. Stick a toothpick into the truffle and roll it in the chocolate. Drip off any excess.
- You can also add crushed Oreo cookies to the top of these truffles. Make sure to add them while the chocolate is still wet.
