Oreo truffles are one of my favorite desserts to make because they look so fancy and time-consuming and they are, in fact, really easy to make. The kids have a fun time dipping the truffle balls into the melted chocolate and adding the sprinkles!

- Oreos – I used regular stuffed oreos and you keep the cream filling in the oreos when you crush them into fine crumbs
- Cream Cheese – it s best to let it come to room temperature. This makes mixing eaiser.
- White chocoalte – you can use whatever you have on hand. I love Ghirardelli melting wafers but you can use candy melts, white chocolate chips or almond bark as well.
- Sprinkles – Decorate with St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles, green sprinkles, non-pareiels or green dusting sugars.
Variations to Truffles Recipe
Since these are St. Patrick’s edition of oreo truffles, try substituting the Mint Oreos for the regular to make mint truffles!
You can also use green candy melts in place of the white and add a 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract to the chocolate as you melt it for an even more minty flavor!
Try adding pop sticks to the truffles to make them oreo truffle pops! dip the stick in the melted chocolate and insert it into the truffle, let sit for 10 minutes or so and then completely dip the pops in to coat the truffles.

How to Make Oreo Truffles
For this oreo truffle recipe, we first have to crush oreos. You can accomplish this by using a food processor or multi-use blender, such as a Blentec, and pulse the cookies until they become fine crumbs or you can do it the non-electronic way and use a Ziploc bag and a rolling pin or meat mallet.
Next, in a mixing bowl, you will add the oreo crumbs and the cream cheese and mix well until all incorporated.
Now, we are going to line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper and then using a 1-inch cookie dough scoop, scoop out and form 1-inch balls and place the oreo balls on the baking sheet.
We are now going to put these into the fridge or freezer to chill. This makes coating them with the chocolate so much easier. As those treats chill, we can start melting our chocolate. I do this in the microwave in small increments, mixing well in between!
Remove the baking sheet from the refrigerator and dip the balls into the melted chocolate. Use a fork to scoop them out and tap off the excess chocolate and then place them back on the baking sheet.
Add any sprinkles and let them rest until the chocolate sets. You can do this on the counter or pop them back in the fridge.
Truffle Storage: Store the St. Patrick’s Day OREO Truffle Recipe stores best in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to a week (if they last that long!)
You can also freeze the OREO truffle balls and to defrost, let them thaw in the refrigerator for about 24 hours.
