No-Bake Golden Oreo Truffles.

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

Oreo Truffles! These are so simple to make and you only need a few ingredients. Kids love them!

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.

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.

Golden Oreo Truffles - only 4 easy ingredients!

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

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.

Yield: 35 1-inch truffles

Total Time: 1 hour, plus cooling

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

Process the Oreos (the entire cookies, filling and cookie) in a food processor or blender. Pulse until crumbs are formed.

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 may do this step by hand, but I find using a mixer is much easier.

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.)

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 - 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.

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!

    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!

      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.

        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?
