How to Make Oreo Truffles
The first step is to crush them into crumbs, using a food processor or blender. You can also do it manually by putting the cookies in a large ziplock bag and pounding them with a rolling pin. Then mix the crumbs together with cream cheese in a bowl to make a thick paste.
Mold into 1-inch balls by rolling between the palms of your hands. The balls don’t need to be perfectly round because they’ll get covered in chocolate anyways.
Then place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or wax paper.
Now you’re ready to dip the balls in chocolate. We used both white chocolate and semisweet chocolate in separate bowls, but you can use just one if you prefer. Be sure to get baking chocolate, since chocolate chips are too thick when melted.
Cooking Tips and Notes for Making Great Oreo Truffles
There are some useful tips to bear in mind when making these Oreo truffles:
- The cream cheese needs to be softened before mixing with the oreo crumbs. Here is a tutorial on how to soften cream cheese.
- After you roll the cream cheese and oreo crumbs into balls, don’t leave them in the freezer for too long. If you need to leave them for more than one hour, place them in the refrigerator instead.
- Higher quality baking chocolate will coat the balls better than melting chocolate chips or other substitutes
- Keep the truffles chilled until serving for the best flavor
