No Bake Oreo Truffles

I normally prefer homemade cookies to store bought, but there is something about an Oreo that no one can recreate. I love most desserts that include Oreos and this recipe is no different.

It’s only 3 ingredients and so easy to make.  Also, everyone loves these 3 ingredients Oreo balls when I make them.  You can’t go wrong with this easy and delicious dessert recipe!

Ingredients to make these easy Oreo Truffles

You only need 3 ingredients to make Oreo Truffles!

I love creating desserts for my family but get easily scared with super complicated recipes.  Luckily this one only requires 3 ingredients, so I knew that I wouldn’t have any problems creating these Oreo balls.

This is all you need to make this easy dessert recipe.

  • Oreos – I love using the regular Oreos for this recipe. You don’t need anything fancy and I don’t recommend the double stuff as it’s too much cream for this recipe.
  • Cream Cheese – Do not use the reduce fat cream cheese and let the cream cheese soften at room temperature. Usually sitting at room temperature for 2-3 hours works perfectly.
  • Melting Chocolate – Melting chocolate, baking chocolate or chocolate chips all work great to make the candy coating for these Oreo balls.

How to make 3 Ingredient Oreo Dessert:

First I like to line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper for easy clean up.

Then you are going to finely crush the Oreo cookies. I use a food processor. I prefer the Oreos to be crushed into fine crumbs as they mix easier for this recipe. However, if you don’t have a food processor, you can crush the Oreos in a ziplock bag with a rolling pin.

Then put Oreo crumbs in a large mixing bowl and add the softened cream cheese. You’ll want the cream cheese to be softened so that it’ll combine well with the Oreos.

Once the Oreos and cream cheese are thoroughly combined, roll small amounts into individual balls.  I use a cookie scoop to assist in creating the mixture into the ball shapes.  Then place the Oreo balls on the prepared baking sheet.

Place this baking sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes to 30 minutes to harden the balls.

During this time melt the chocolate. Heat the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals (stirring after each interval) until the chocolate is fully melted.

Then remove the Oreo balls from the freezer and dip them into the melted chocolate. Use a fork to dip them into the chocolate and allowed the excess chocolate to drip off of the fork.

Then place the Oreo balls back on the baking sheet.

Then top the truffles with your favorite sprinkles or additional crushed up Oreos.

Place the Oreo balls in the refrigerator until the chocolate sets (usually around 20 minutes).  Then they are ready to enjoy!

Tips to make the Best Oreo Balls:

  • Don’t use light cream cheese, the full fat one is the best option for this recipe.
  • Be sure to freeze the Oreo balls before attempting to dip them in the chocolate.
  • Use a food processor or a blender to crush the Oreos so that they blend more evenly with the cream cheese.
  • If the chocolate begins to harden while you’re using it put it back in the microwave for 5-10 seconds.

How to Store:

Refrigerate these in an air tight container for up to 1 week. You can keep them at room temperature for 2-3 hours when serving.

Can you freeze these Oreo Balls?

Yes, these truffles can be frozen in an air tight freezer safe container or bag for up to 2-3 months. Defrost them out in the refrigerator overnight and then they are ready to be enjoyed.

Variations for Oreo Truffle Balls Recipe:

  • Change up the Chocolate. – This recipe would be great with dark, milk or white chocolate for the candy coating on these Oreo balls. You can also do a mixture for more variety for serving.
  • Use Different Types or Oreos. – I use traditional Oreos for this recipe but there are a variety of Oreos that you can choose from. Peppermint Oreos would be perfect for Christmas and Vanilla Oreos would be great with white chocolate.
  • Use different type of Sprinkles – You can easily make these for any holidays with different type of festive sprinkles. These are perfect for any event or holiday because they are always a crowd pleaser.
  • Make Mint Truffles. – Add some peppermint extract to the Oreo and cream cheese mixture. Then top with crushed up candy canes to make delicious Mint Truffles.
