Chocolate Oreo Truffles

Guys. Make these.

You won't be sorry.

Simple, inexpensive, delicious--my favorite combination.

Great for throwing in a holiday bag and giving to neighbors, or bringing in a festive tin to a holiday potluck.

Here is the recipe. Use it wisely--and often!

Oreo Truffles
(Makes about 25 truffles, more or less depending on size)
-1 full size package regular Oreos
-2 packages of cream cheese
-1 bag milk chocolate chips

-Place cream cheese in a mixing bowl and let soften. Scrape the frosting from the insides of the Oreos and mix into the cream cheese.

-Pulverize the chocolate cookies in whatever way you'd like (food processor works best, but a rolling pin and ziplock bag work just as well) until they are ground into fine crumbs. Mix into the cream cheese, reserving about a quarter cup of the crumbs.

-Form the cream cheese into bowls and place on a cookie sheet with wax paper. Let chill in freezer until firm, about one hour.

-Once cream cheese balls are firm, melt chocolate over a double boiler. One by one, using forks, dip the cream cheese balls into the chocolate and cover completely. Return to cookie sheet and sprinkle with a bit of the remaining crumbs.

-Chill in refrigerator until chocolate has hardened. Try to sample one NOW, because they'll be gone quickly!



  1. How positively sinful! I can see why they would disappear so fast!

  2. Mmmm a tin of these would help me get through this horrible Monday! I bet if we combine this recipe with my reeses peanut butter balls (recipe forthcoming) people at Christmas parties would die of happiness.

    Or diabetes.

  3. I'm a sucker for anything oreo. These look dangerously awesome!

  4. Great recipe and they look so elegant too!

  5. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.
    I don't know who you are but certainly you are going to a
    famous blogger if you aren't already ;) Cheers!
