Oreo Truffles Ingredients
The filling will hit everyone’s sweet tooth with the taste of smooth oreo laced chocolate that seemingly melts in your mouth! Made up of heavy cream, milk, cocoa powder, salt, chocolate chips, and America’s favorite cookie, Oreos!
The sweet chocolate shell is melted chocolate wafers topped with finely crushed Oreos. If needed, almond bark is also a good stand-in option for the chocolate wafers.
How To Make Oreo Balls
1. Prepare a baking sheet with wax paper and set it aside. Then, using a food processor, take 15 Oreos and turn them into fine crumbs.
2. Mix together the heavy cream and milk in a saucepan to bring to a light simmer on medium-high heat. Once simmering, remove from the heat and add chocolate chips, let sit for five minutes before whisking together.
3. Add in the oreo crumbs, cocoa powder, and salt, stirring until thoroughly combined. Then allow this mixture to chill in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours.
4. Once chilled, roll the oreo ball filling into 1-inch balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Place back in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
5. Heat up the melting wafers and then using a dipping tool easily dip the truffles into the melted chocolate. Allow excess chocolate to drip before placing them on a baking sheet with a clean sheet of wax paper.
6. After dipping them in chocolate top them with more finely crushed Oreos. Allow them to set out at room temperature to set up, about 15 minutes.
A delicious variation of this Oreo Truffle recipe would be dipping them in melted white chocolate instead of milk chocolate.
Easily modify this recipe to give you a hint of peppermint without having to add cream cheese. Simply add in ¼ to ½ teaspoon of peppermint extract to the already delicious oreo mixture filling!
How To Store Oreo Truffles
Store Oreo Truffles in an airtight container for 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer.
Regular Oreos Vs Double Stuff
Regular Oreos were used to make these Balls so using double stuff may throw off the ratio.
The chill time for this Oreo Truffles recipe is lengthy because the filling is so soft and sticky. But I promise it’s worth every minute you have to wait until you’re able to taste the first one!
Whether you choose a variation or leave this recipe as is, it’s sure to be a new family favorite!

- Whisk in the cocoa powder, Oreo crumbs, and salt until incorporated.

- Use a small or medium cookie scoop to scoop out the truffle mixture and roll them between your palms to form a round ball.
- Place the balls on a wax paper lined baking sheet and place them in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

- These truffles are soft which is why they need to be chilled for so long to set up.
- This recipe was also tested with bittersweet chocolate chips, I preferred the semi-sweet, but both were very good.
- I would run the Oreos through the food processor for best results.
