Easy Oreo “Truffles”

oreo IIEasy Oreo “Truffles”

Ingredients:
1 regular package original Oreo cookies
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 cups Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips (or other good quality chocolate, broken into pieces)
½ TB Crisco (shortening)
2-3 TB white frosting (from a can, works best!)
 
Directions:

Break Oreos into a food processor, and process until they turn into fine crumbs.

Mix Oreo crumbs and softened cream cheese together until well blended.  Place bowl in freezer for 20-30 minutes (this helps with next step).

Roll Oreo mixture into walnut size balls, and place on waxed paper on cookie sheet.  Freeze for an hour.

Melt chocolate and shortening in double boiler.

Dip Oreo balls in chocolate and place on wax paper to harden (I tilt pan on angle, and use 2 forks to dip/roll).

Melt white frosting in microwave at half power until the desired consistency is reached.  Put into a small plastic sandwich sized bag, snip the end, and drizzle over Oreo Balls.

Keep refrigerated until ready to eat.

Wallah!  Super easy gorgeous treats that taste like chocolate truffles!  Your friends will love them and think you’re a superstar!

  1. Looks like a great recipe. One question – when you say Oreo original cookies – are you meaning the ones with the white icing and that all gets ground up, or just the chocolate cookie part? Thanks!

    • Excellent question Bill! The whole cookie gets ground up, including the white middle part. It’s weird, but when you process all the oreos – you don’t see any white at all, just black crumbs, but the white part helps soften it and that with the cream cheese makes it absolutely delicious! Have fun making them! Jen

  2. These are super! I have had them before but not the recipe! I am going to make them for end of the year teacher’s gifts! Thanks for posting Jen!

  3. Jen. These are Kennedy’s favorite treat. She just had a small business day at school and she sold Oreo Truffles. She took 44 and sold out quickly.
