Ashley's Absolutely Award Winning Oreo Chocolate Truffles

These truffles are very easy to make.They aren't a long-standing family tradition, but I plan to make them one. Someone made these for us last year for Christmas and I loved them so much I made them for a chocolate cook-off at church. I won first prize, so really these should be called Ashley's Absolutely Amazing Award-Winning Oreo Chocolate Truffles!!

Oreo Chocolate Truffles
  • 8 ounces Cream Cheese
  • 1 Package Oreo Cookies
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
Whip cream cheese until soft.Grind cookies in a food processor. Mix with cream cheese until blended. Place mixture in refrigerator for at least 4 hours until firm. Roll into balls and dip into chocolate. Melt chocolate in double boiler and keep warm while dipping. ( I use toothpicks to take the balls out of the chocolate.)

You can also dip these into white chocolate, but I haven't done that yet, at least not anytime that it has turned out. Do not use white chocolate ships. The chocolate clumps, and they really do taste horrible. Instead, use almond bark for candying. I've heard that works best. When you do it this way, they look like little snowballs, plus, the white chocolate gives it more of that Oreo filling taste.

  1. I tried adding a tablespoon of crisco to the white chocolate chips and it worked better, also you have to be very careful about heating chocolate. I think these would sell well at a bake sale

  2. Yay! I've been looking for a good chocolate truffle recipe. I can substitute the dairy stuff for some non dairy stuff and Oreos are non dairy so no problem there. What did you use for the white drizzle over the tops?
