Oreo Truffles

by Brittany on December 19, 2009

These sweet little treats are fun to make and everybody loves them! I bet a lot of you already have this recipe – they were a hit last year in the recipe blogging world and got passed around quite a bit! I got the recipe off of the Picky Palate who got it from someone else… they must be good right?! The only thing I changed was using a little more cream cheese – with only one package of cream cheese the filling is a little too dry for me. Have fun and enjoy! (You all reminded me to add that Mint Oreos are indeed fantastic tasting in this recipe! I bet they would be super cute with crushed peppermint stick on top too! Nutter Butters are good too -with milk chocolate coating and white chocolate drizzle. I have to say that Oreos are by far the best though!!)

Oreo Truffles
submitted by Brittany
1 bag Oreo Cookies, ground up in blender or food processor
1 1/2 8oz. packages of cream cheese, softened
2 cups white chocolate chips or 1 package Almond Bark (white chocolate candy coating)
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips or 1 square of the Chocolate Bark for drizzling
1. Combine ground Oreos and cream cheese in mixer using paddle attachment until well mixed. Roll into 1 inch balls (makes about 30) and place onto baking sheet or tray. Refrigerate overnight or until very firm.
2. Melt white chocolate in microwave for 1-2 minutes on 70% power. Using 2 little spoons, dip balls into chocolate and place onto parchment paper to harden. Once dry, melt dark chocolate and spoon into the corner of a ziplock baggie. Snip a small corner and drizzle back and forth over the truffles. Let dry.

Try using double stuffed oreos, then you might not need 1 1/2 pkgs of cream cheese.

So I added to the recipe that mint oreos are super good too – i had forgotten that twist of the recipe!
Also, I have accidently made these with double stuffed oreos once… and although they did stick together better (this was before I added the extra cream cheese), I didn't like them as well. Honestly it may be that I hate the filling anyway though! I just like the taste of cream cheese a million times better! But I know a lot of people love oreo filling so if you're one of these, go for it!!

Do you store these at room temp or in the fridge?

Julie, I store them in my garage where it's cold- I bet the fridge is better than room temp though because of the cream cheese. (although they are yummy served room temp)If you have a cool place to store them it's probably better than the fridge though because my chocolate tends to turn white when i get it too cold. Hope that helps! Brittany

I just made a batch of your chocolate covered nuts (the recipe that calls for white chips, semi sweet and milk chocolate chips). I made them using a large can of mixed nuts and they are totally delicious!! They turned out beautifully (although you suggested 3 cups of nuts, I actually used five cups). They are going to be such a hit in the stockings. I didn't freeform them on a cookie sheet, but I put them in christmas mini-cupcake papers. They are so cute!! Hubby gives 2 thumbs up. Thanks for the recipe.

Instead of white chocolate I used the dark mint chocolate and drizzled it with some white. Turned out yummy. I did keep mine in the fridge. To me they tasted a lot better. This one husbande swore that I bought these somewhere. I told him nope I made them. He thought Sees lol!!! Great recipe!!! This was a HUGE hint and so easy to do!!!

Hi!
I have a question.
For the bag of oreos, how many are in there? Do you mean the bag of 6? Or the long sticks with like 13-15?
