The most wonderful time of year! I am love, loving all of the Christmas baking! Although I promise I have a few savory recipes coming your way, I have to admit it’s a bit of a battle because all I want to do is make sweets and cookies. They’re just so fun! I want to roll absolutely everything in crushed candy canes 😉

Are you a fan of Oreo cookies?

I’m sure there are some people out there who are not fans, but it’s hard to imagine not liking these classic chocolate sandwich cookies! Deep, dark chocolate filled with a soft, creamy icing. They’re so delicious!

Not only are the cookies themselves delicious, but desserts MADE with Oreos are always amazing! I’m a huge fan of Oreo ice cream, Oreo cheesecake and pretty much anything sweet made with a crushed Oreo cookie. These 3 ingredient Oreo truffles are reminiscent of Oreo cheesecake. So delicious!

Oh, and I did I mention they only require 3 INGREDIENTS!?

What ingredients do you need for an Oreo truffle?

The 3 ingredients you need for this recipe are:

  • Oreo cookies (one whole pack, 36 cookies)
  • cream cheese (1 full block, 8 ounces)
  • white (or dark) chocolate, (8 ounces)

The cream cheese must be at room temperature before starting! 

How do you make 3 ingredient Oreo truffles?

When you’re ready to start the recipe, place the Oreos (filling and all) in a food processor and blitz until small crumbs are formed. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a large Ziploc bag and a rolling pin to crush them. 

Once the cookies are crushed, add the cream cheese, in pieces, to the food processor, and pulse lightly until combined, OR stir in the cream cheese by hand using a wooden spoon. Once the mixture is combined, place it into the fridge for an hour to firm up. Do not try to roll the truffles right away or you’ll end up with a hot mess!

After an hour, use a small cookie scoop or a tablespoon to form small, even-sized balls out of the mixture, placing them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Freeze the balls on the cookie tray for 1 hour. This will make the chocolate dipping process much easier!

After the hour, using a double boiler or the microwave, melt the white chocolate until smooth and creamy. If you’re using the microwave, stir the mixture every 25-30 seconds to avoid the chocolate seizing up. 

If you plan to decorate the truffles, have the crushed candy canes or spinkles ready to go as the chocolate will harden as soon as you dip the truffle!

Use a fork or a chocolate dipping fork (this is the one I have) to dunk the truffles in the melted chocolate, returning it to the baking sheet and garnishing with sprinkles or crushed candy canes. Allow the chocolate to set and serve!

How long do the truffles keep for?

The truffles should be stored in the fridge, due to the cream cheese. You could definitely leave them out at room temperature for a few hours, if you have them out for a party or gathering! Another option would be to leave them in the freezer – they’re DELICIOUS straight from the freezer!

How do you make the chocolate drizzle?

Once you’ve dipped the truffle initially, place it on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and wait for it to harden. If you’re dipping the truffle from frozen then the chocolate will harden quite quickly. Place some additional melted chocolate (dark or white) into a small sandwich bag with a very tiny corner clipped off. Holding the bag in one hand, gently squeeze the chocolate out in a drizzle over the tops of the truffles.

I hope you enjoy these truffles! They’re a super easy addition to your holiday baking line-up (or any day baking line-up). Or, I guess “non-baking” line-up!

PS – it’s my birthday tomorrow…have a glass of wine for me! 🙂

  • Author: Katherine | Love In My Oven
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 hours
  • Yield: 20-22 truffles 1x

Description

These white chocolate Oreo balls couldn’t be easier! All you need is a few ingredients for this easy Oreo dessert. You’ll love these 3 ingredient Oreo truffles!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 package Oreo cookies (36 cookies)
  • 8 oz block full-fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 8 oz white chocolate, chopped*
  • optional: crushed candy canes, sprinkles, nuts, additional chocolate, etc for decorating

Instructions

  1. Place the Oreo cookies (filling and all) in a food processor and blitz until small crumbs are formed. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a large Ziploc bag and a rolling pin to crush them. Once the cookies are crushed, add the cream cheese, in pieces, to the food processor, and pulse lightly until combined, OR stir in the cream cheese by hand using a wooden spoon. Once the mixture is thoroughly combined, place it into the fridge for an hour to firm up. Do not try to roll the truffles right away or you’ll end up with a hot mess!
  2. Using a small cookie scoop, form small, even-sized balls out of the mixture, placing them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze the balls on the cookie tray for 1 hour. Prior to removing the balls from the freezer, melt the white chocolate in either a double boiler, or in a microwave-safe bowl, heating it in 30 second increments and stirring after each interval until shiny and smooth.
  3. Using a fork or a chocolate dipping fork, dunk the truffles in the melted chocolate, shaking off excess chocolate and returning them to the baking sheet. Garnish with sprinkles or crushed candy canes immediately before the chocolate sets.. If drizzling with additional chocolate, wait until the truffle has hardened before drizzling. Serve immediately!

The truffles will be fine at room temperature for a few hours, after which they should be stored in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.

Notes

*You can also use dark chocolate if you’d prefer this to white chocolate

  1. My husband Tom would LOVE these Katherine. Oreos are his kryptonite! Gotta make a batch and treat him!

  2. Well, I happen to be one of those people… it’s that white waxy stuff in the middle that doesn’t appeal to me! But I can imagine all processed up with cream cheese… well, I know they’re really good. And you made them so pretty! Happy Birthday!

  3. Honestly unswerving you question, nope, I’m not a huge fan of oreos on their own. They’re just too sugary that I cannot taste anything but sugar. But somehow they beautifully work to my liking as a part of other recipes like ice cream or a cheesecake base. I’ve also made oreo truffles on a few occasions, and they are awesome, I must admit! I personally prefer very dark chocolate to balance out the sweetness, but white chocolate looks so festive on them, too! Needless to say, everyone is better (in December) with candy cane 🙂 Look forward to your savoury ideas!

  4. Happy early birthday, Katherine! These Oreos look so decadent! And I’m with you on rolling everything in crushed candy cane! Peppermint season, come on in!

  5. We make these every year for Christmas and they are always a crowd favorite!! Yours look so yummy and pretty!

  6. Perfect no bake holidays dessert. I would also use dark chocolate as Ben writes. Great one to keep for holidays !

  7. These seem like the perfect snackable dessert for the holidays! And they are so easy to prepare!?! I will be bookmarking this idea.
