Oreo Truffles

Thats right. Oreo Truffles. One of my favorite cookies turned into delicious a treat!

Whats great about these truffles is that they are super simple to make! Not hard at all. I came across this blog called Bakerella not to long and she has so many cute, easy idea of making sweet treats! I love all the ideas that she comes up with. They're all so adorable.

When I saw here Oreo Truffles that she made, I knew I need to make them. So I did just that. And Let me tell you... They're super easy, super quick, and super delicious.


1 pkg. Oreo Cookies
1 8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
White Chocolate Bark

1. Finely crush 7 cookies in a food processor or a ziploc bag and crush to a fine consistency. Reserve for later.* See Notes.

2. Crush remaining cookies and stir in cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.

3. Roll the mixture into 1" balls and place on a wax paper covered baking sheet.

4. Melt chocolate as directed for chocolate and then dip the balls into chocolate. Tap off extra and set on waxed baking sheet. You can sprinkle the top with the 7 crushed cookies, or just kept to eat.

5. Once dry, refrigerate and enjoy.

- You don't have to top the truffles with the reserved cookies. You can just not crush them and eat them.
- It helps to freeze the uncoated balls for a few minutes to keep the mixture from falling apart in the melted chocolate.
- To form balls, you can use 2 tsp. to form each ball to make it easier and so that they are all the same size.
- You can easily half this recipe if you don't want to make to many. This recipe makes about 42 truffles, half of this recipe will probably make 21 truffles.

Talk about creative, these certainly are a twist. Hum, I'll have to give these a try in the near future. BTW, I read your about page [you sound like a very nice person]. I've surfed through your blog and I'm impressed. Keep up the great work!

I just noticed you're going to a Van Halen concert tomorrow. I hope you have a great time! (I'm jealous.) For a 17-year-old, you have good taste in music!

Hey, I was curious as to about how many oreo's you used? I dunno if it was like one roll or all the oreos or if the box that I have is too many or what not. They look great, hopefully mine will come out fine, even though I did just buy regular baking chocolate since I couldn't find any bark..

One package is 51 cookies.
Minus the 7 cookies, this recipe calls for 44 oreo cookies

Hi Tarah!!
How fun that you made the oreo truffles!
I have this recipe to try for over a year and still have made it, and everyone keeps raving about them!
Gotta get some friends together so I can make these sometime!!

Ps: I also loved the red velvet cake balls, super cool, really perfect for valentine's day!!
