Sweet, chocolate covered Oreo Truffles. Everyone loves these and they are so easy to make!

Every Christmas, my good friend Amy and I get together to make one of our favorite chocolatey treats, Oreo Truffle Balls. Have you ever had them before?

They are essentially the easiest recipe I’ve ever made – all it takes is some crushed up Oreos, a block of cream cheese, and dipping chocolate to coat them. I like to throw them on a dessert plate with other goodies at Christmas time. They are ALWAYS the first treat to go! But with Christmas at the other end of the year and Santa no where in sight, I am left truffle-hungry. Until today. I think I found my new drug favorite no-bake treat: GOLDEN Oreo Truffles.

How to Make Oreo Truffles - with any kind of Oreo! I love them with Golden Oreos. This recipe is so simple!

Golden Oreos are my favorite kind. Many may not agree, but I prefer them over their chocolate cousin. Golden Oreos are the same Oreos I used for my Golden Oreo Cake Batter Blondies. They are the epitome of vanilla yumminess. I like to smear peanut butter all over them while I’m curled up on the couch reading gossip magazines – now that’s pure happiness right there.

You can, of course, just use regular Oreos as well.

How to Make Oreo Truffles on It's so, so easy!

What I love most about Oreo Truffles that the ingredient list is SO short. Three ingredients! That’s it. These no-bake, no-fuss, EASY truffles will be your new favorite way to consume calories, I can guarantee. And no need to waste your money on groumet truffles, because these babies will honestly WOW any crowd. Perfect for a quick dessert to bring to any party, potluck, or to make as a yummy treat for yourself.

Oh, and since I add sprinkles to EVERYTHING these days, I knew today’s truffles would not be complete without a heavy dose of those colorful little buggers.

Golden Oreo Truffles

Yield: 35 one inch truffles

Total Time: 1 hour, plus cooling

Print Recipe

For these no bake truffles, pulverized Golden Oreos are combined with cream cheese and formed into balls before being dipped in white chocolate and topped with sprinkles.


  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package (15.25 oz) Golden Oreos or Regular Oreos
  • 12 ounces high quality white chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate
  • sprinkles for decor


  1. Process the Oreos (the entire cookies, filling and cookie) in a food processor or blender. Pulse until crumbs are formed.
  2. Using a hand-held or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the Oreo crumbs with the cream cheese until combined. The mixture will be thick and sticky. You can do this step by hand, but I find using a mixer is much easier.
  3. Using your hands, roll into 30-35 balls. Place balls on two large plates, a parchment paper lined baking sheet, or a silicone mat-lined bake sheet. Freeze the truffles for about 30 minutes. (Freezing the balls is the most important step of this recipe. If they are not cold and solid, the melted chocolate will not coat the balls properly.)
  4. Coarsely chop the chocolate and melt according to package directions. Working with 1 truffle at a time, coat in chocolate. Here's how I coat truffles: drop the truffle in the middle of the melted chocolate. Swirl the chocolate all around it with a fork. Pick up the truffle with a fork or dipping tool - do not pierce it, simply pick it up on top of the fork's prongs. Tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to allow the excess chocolate to drip off. Place on a lined baking sheet. Top with sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet.
  5. Refrigerate truffles for at least 10 minutes so the chocolate sets. Truffles must always be chilled and will stay fresh for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.

    Can I check if the one pack of Oreo refers to one small pack of 3 Oreos? Cause I’m in Asia so I’m not sure if America side is the same. Thanks!


    • Sallyreplied on May 28th, 2014 at 8:48 pm

      It’s a regular size package – 14.3 ounces.

    Will the chocolate sweat if I refrigerate them?

    Sally, I had a nightmare making these! (My friend thinks I got a bad batch of baking chocolate). My chocolate would NOT melt! I even had her fancy chocolate melting pot (fondue pot)… I ended up having to melt white chocolate chips, also how did you get your chocolate so white? Mine was a brownish almondy color… Hopefully mine taste better than they look!


    • Sallyreplied on July 3rd, 2014 at 3:52 pm

      Oh my… what kind of white chocolate are you using? I’ve never seen brown melted white chocolate before. And I’m concerned it’s not melting… at all. I suggest using Ghirardelli white chocolate – it’s the best for coating.


      • Carlinereplied on July 3rd, 2014 at 7:13 pm

        Thanks for the quick reply! I think my problem was that I used double stuffed Oreos (on accident), maybe too much filling? And, I had baking chocolate instead of dipping chocolate, would that make a difference?

    • Randireplied on September 24th, 2014 at 10:23 pm

      Try using vanilla flavored CandiQuik. It microwaves perfectly and tastes just like white chocolate.

    Ok, I solved my own problem! I had used double stuffed and less Oreos come in the package so my Oreo to cream cheese ratio was way off! Good thing I didn’t loose too much sleep over that one 😉

    Love your blog!

    Hi sally :) I totally love your blog, I spend hours reading the recipes.
    You think is it okay if I dip the oreos on regular chocolate instead of white chocolate?

    Sally, I love your site for all the amazingly delicious sweet recipes that are just so super easy to make. Thanks for sharing with us. Thought I would share too: this recipe is perfect to experiment with. This morning I made a batch with Kingston biscuits but added dedicated coconut and almonds. So yummy!

    I really wanna try these, but we don´t have that huge variety of Oreos in Germany. Any suggestions for substitutes?

    Thanks in advance

    I have been using a lot of sprinkles since discovering your website last year! Is there somewhere to get them more affordablly then at the grocery store? Your funfetti recipe is in constant circulation around my house!

    We made these with birthday cake flavored oreos, and they were delicious! Unfortunately all we had were milk chocolate chips, which were really hard to use for dipping, but still tasted good. I’ll definitely use a melting chocolate of some sort next time. :)
    Thank you so much for the fun recipe! 😀

    Can the cream cheese be substituted? I’m allergic to it

    I just made these and they are delicious!! I’d like to put them in a treat bag and give them as a gift to my coworkers. Do you think that would work? Without being refrigerated during the work day until they get home?


    • Sallyreplied on December 21st, 2014 at 7:33 pm

      They should be ok all day at room temperature provided they’re not a hot, humid environment. Which I’m sure it’s not =)

    Was wondering if you can use low fat cream cheese?

      That’s fine here.

    Hello. This recipe looks perfect for valentines day :) but I am wondering if I could substitute the cream cheese for something else. My boyfriend hates it but he loves golden Oreos. I ll still make them as they are for my siblings and my uni friends :) thank you

    I’d love to try making these for Valentine’s Day this year! But I was wondering… What size package of Oreos do you use?


    • Sallyreplied on February 11th, 2015 at 1:29 pm

      15.25 ounce package

    I made these today. I used ghiradelli white chocolate. I found that the chocolate was really thick and it was hard to nicely and evenly coat the balls. I melted the chocolate on a double boiler but then turned the heat off after it was all melted because I was scared it would burn (known problem for me). Any suggestions how to keep the chocolate nice and smooth to coat the full batch? By the way, while mine look a mess, they are absolutely addicting 😉

    I have made these several times and they always come out fabulous. I tried once with the Ghiardelli chocolate but I had to buy 2 bars and it was expensive and didn’t melt well. Now I use the candy melts; usually Merckens,. It melts easily and stays melted for the whole batch.

    Didn’t work….I had it like about 40 min in the fridge but when I put the chocolate on it, they were “melting away” so I had to roll them into cacao before using only some chocolate sprinkles. Half of it was for the trash.

    I made these last Saturday with white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate and everyone loved them. I would definitely make them again, they were so easy.

    Charlotte Herbertposted May 10, 2015 at 12:02 pm

    My favorite tweak on these:
    Once the ball is formed, make a little ‘well’ [I use the big end of a chopstick], in each ball. Marshmallow fluff in a small zip baggie, with the corner snipped off [approx. couple tablespoons] . Squeeze a small amount into each ball, and pinch the ball closed. Dip in [not white] chocolate and sprinkle some graham cracker crumbs on each one before the coating sets.
    S’moreos balls!
    [Note: I had tried it with a mini marshmallow, but I liked the consistency of the fluff better.]

    Hi Sally! Looking for make ahead easy elegant recipies for my fabulous forty party in 2 weeks. Was hoping I could make these and then freeze them till the date, but you have no freezing instructions? Here it says 5 days ahead In the fridge, is that the earliest? Thanks, Shani in Mexico


    • Sallyreplied on June 21st, 2015 at 4:11 pm

      You can freeze for up to 2-3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving. Happy birthday!
