Oreo Truffles

So, I'm a day late in making a new post this week! The quarter has been winding down and it's finally the last week of winter quarter. Even though, this quarter is essentially done and over with, I'm even more busy with finals being this friday and saturday with another one on the following thursday. So, in order to whip up something quick and simple, I decided to try out these oreo truffles.

Oreo Truffles have been getting a pretty decent amount of attention. But "Why?!" I asked myself. Aren't Oreos fantastic on their own? Do we really have to grind them up and mix them with cream cheese so they're soft and mushy and no longer crunchy? I could not fathom this. However, you have to try everything once, right?

 So I followed the recipe and made these truffles. I loved the ease of this recipe. A 3 ingredient recipe is so simple that anyone can make these. What was the result? Keep on reading. ha. 

- Definitely refrigerate your truffles for at least one hour before dipping into chocolate. If not, they will fall apart in the dipping process due to the heat of the chocolate.

Taste: Call me crazy but I wasn't wild about how these tasted. They had the classic Oreo chocolate flavor but the tang of the cream cheese left an unpleasant taste in my mouth. Cream cheese has that tang which I don't think works well with this. I would suggest using a prepared frosting instead if you're like me and don't like a tangy chocolate flavor. 

Texture: A snap from the outer coating of chocolate conceals a creamy, smooth, fudgey interior.

Oreo Truffles (Makes 36 truffles)
Recipe from Bakerella

1 package oreo cookies (divided… use cookie including the cream center)
1 8oz. package cream cheese (softened)
white chocolate bark (I used Semi-Sweet chocolate)

1. Finely crush 7 cookies in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and crush into a fine consistency. Reserve for later.
2. Crush remaining cookies and stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together.
3. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.
4. Melt chocolate as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry. You can sprinkle the tops with the 7 crushed cookies for decoration. (I usually eat mine before they make it to this stage.)
5. Once dry, refrigerate and enjoy!

  1. The truffles look awesome. Too bad you didn't enjoy it much. Only 3 ingredients? I might have to try these myself soon.
    Have a great week.

  2. AJ! I can't believe I haven't been over here in so long.. you've been up to such great things! These truffles look fabulous..I'm not usually a huge fan of cream cheese either but I can take it in these little bad boys :)

  3. Michael: Yeah try them!! Let me know how it goes!! I think I'm just really picky when it comes to sweets. ha.

    Evan: Omg!! I've been super busy that I haven't been able to check up on anyones blog especially yours!! I will after my finals!! haha.

  4. Hey Aaron! Great recipe - I can feel my mouth watering now. Just a question - can I use low fat cream cheese in this recipe?

  5. Divya: That's a good question. I watched a video about making oreo truffles before I made these and the woman in the video said not to use low fat cream cheese because it doesn't hold up as well. However, I have never used low fat cream cheese so I wouldn't know it's consistency. I would think that if you were to use it, you can put the truffles in the freezer instead of the refrigerator to set up?

  6. great looking truffles you've made there! :) I'm with you about the taste of the truffles, I used cream cheese and they were just WAY too rich, I couldn't even bring myself to swallow it (I'm not exaggerating btw) and I'm a huge lover of oreos (well who isn't :D)


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! :)
