Tips For Making These Peanut Butter Oreo Truffles
- Portion Sizing – Use a medium cookie scoop to portion out the mixture. This way the Truffles are all about the same size.
- Freezing The Truffles – Placing the scooped-out Truffle mixture into the freezer allows them to firm up. Making for an easier process when it comes to dipping the balls in the melted chocolate.
- Spiral Dipping Tool – Though not necessary, a dipping tool is super handy when making truffles of any kind! If you don’t have one, no worries, a fork or spoon will also get the job done.
- Softening Filling – If the Truffle filling becomes too soft while dipping, simply place the baking sheet back into the freezer. Then just grab the other sheet that was waiting in the freezer and continue the dipping process.
- White Chocolate – For a fun flavor variation, you can also melt white chocolate to dip the Truffles in.
Do I Need To Store These Truffles In The Refrigerator?
The ingredients don’t require these Oreo Peanut Butter Balls to be stored in the fridge, however, the filling does tend to turn soft. This can lead to cracked chocolate shells if they’re left at room temperature for too long.
So, storing the Truffles in the refrigerator is best but not absolutely necessary.
Am I Supposed To Use Just The Cookie Part Of The Oreos?
Nope! This recipe calls for the whole Oreos to be used in it. Simply transfer the cookies from the Oreo package directly into the food processor.
What If I Don’t Have A Food Processor To Pulse The Cookies?
You can either try using your blender that has a pulse button or simply do this step by hand. To do it by hand, place a portion of the cookies into a gallon Ziploc bag. Then roll a rolling pin over them until fine crumbs form.
Repeat this process until all cookies have been turned into fine crumbs.

Oreo Peanut Butter Balls
- Add the Oreos to a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs form.33 Oreo Cookies
- Transfer the Oreo crumbs to a large mixing bowl with the peanut butter and beat to combine. Add in the sugar and mix at low speed until sugar is just incorporated then increase speed to thoroughly combine.2 cups creamy peanut butter, 1½ cups powdered sugar
- Use a medium cookie scoop to portion out the mixture onto two parchment-lined baking sheets and freeze for 30 minutes.
- Near the end of the 30 minutes, add half of your melting wafers to a wide-mouthed glass or deep bowl and microwave at 30-second intervals until fully melted.20 ounces dark chocolate melting wafers
- Remove one of the pans from the freezer and roll the portions between your palms to create round balls and drop the balls one at a time into the melted chocolate. Use a spoon to coat the top and a spiral dipping tool or fork to remove, let any excess chocolate drip off before placing back on a fresh parchment-lined-baking sheet. If you notice the balls getting too soft to dip, switch them out for the pan in the freezer and dip some of those, then switch back until all have been dipped.
- These do not need to be refrigerated due to the ingredients, however, the peanut butter mixture can get soft inside and crack the chocolate if left at room temperature too long, so storing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator is best, but not necessary.
- You are using regular whole Oreos, not just the cookies.
