Easy Dessert Recipes - No-bake Oreo Truffles

Most of the time I’d rather make a fresh batch of my own cookies (hello shortbread) than buy something pre-packaged from the store, but Oreos are the golden exception to that rule. It only helps that there’s a ton of stuff you can do with them aside from eat them straight out of the package (and let’s be real, that’s pretty great already).

Truffles are something I always make during the holidays, especially as food gifts. They’re fun to make, and you can customize the look of them so they have that true homemade feel to them. While they are a very easy dessert to make, it does take a little time to dip them all and dress them up, but I don’t see this as a negative thing. You don’t have to do multiple types of chocolate or sprinkles, but you can. You get to choose how creative you get with it.

Easy No-bake Oreo Truffles Recipe

What’s remarkable about these oreo truffles is that the inside only has two ingredients. Two!

I swear some of the most easy and delicious desserts have the shortest ingredients lists. My favorite Tiramisu has six, my favorite Candied Pecans have four, these Lavender Shortbread Cookies have four, and these oreo balls only have two ingredients in the middle: oreos and just enough cream cheese to bind it together.

The way they are ground together, the filling transforms into a very moist, cake-like truffle filling. It feels like some sort of trickery, because it’s so easy.

It’s a great contrast to the snap of the hard chocolate shell on the outside. I probably don’t even need to tell you that it’s easy to eat quite a few of these. And not even regret it, hah!

How to Make Oreo Truffles:

To make the truffles, throw about 25 oreo cookies into a food processor, and chop them up well:

Add a half block of softened cream cheese and process until a big clump forms in the side of the food processor:

That means it’s properly mixed and will hold together well. We can now start shaping the truffles.

Then I used this medium cookie scoop to portion out scoops of the oreo mixture:

Roll each scoop in between the palms of your hands to shape each one into a ball:

Place them on a parchment paper lined sheet tray, then refrigerate the truffles for 15 minutes. This helps them firm up a little bit.

Then melt some chocolate and dip the truffles:

You can dip the oreo truffles into white chocolate or dark chocolate, and you can do different drizzles and toppings too:

Let the chocolate harden before enjoying, either at room temperature or by putting the truffles in the fridge for a quick method. It should only take about 10-15 minutes for the chocolate to harden.

Oreo Truffles Tips:

  • Can Oreo Truffles be frozen? Yes, in an airtight container for two months.
  • Can Oreo Truffles be left out at room temperature? Not for more than a few hours, since they have cream cheese in them which needs to be refrigerated.
  • Do Oreo Truffles need to be refrigerated? Yes, and you can store them for a week.
  • Can you mail oreo truffles? No, not unless they’re chilled somehow and that’s a gamble.
  • How to Store Oreo Truffles: Place them on wax paper in an airtight container, and keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.
