I love to make all types of truffle recipes. They are so easy, decorative and are perfect for any occasion. These OREO truffles are a family favorite, as well as sugar cookie truffles, chocolate chip cookie dough truffles and brownie truffles.
These OREO cookie balls have been around for years and are such an easy dessert to make around the holidays. You may also hear them called OREO truffles, which makes them sound a little fancier. My kids LOVE these OREO cake balls and ask me to make them ever year for Christmas dessert plates. They are so easy and delicious!
These OREO cookie balls are made with just 3 simple ingredients and are such an easy dessert recipe! They are fun, festive and great to make for entertaining. Drizzle with chocolate or top with your favorite colored sprinkles for the perfect decorative treat!
36 OREO cookies (1 package) 8 ounces cream cheese (softened) 8 ounces baking chocolate (I prefer melting wafers)
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then crush the oreos (with filling) in a blender or food processor. Mix together the oreo crumbs and cream cheese with a hand mixer. If it isn't coming together, get your hands in there and mix it up. Use a small cookie scoop to scoop out the dough. Then roll into a ball with your hands and place onto the pan. Freeze for 10-15 minutes or until slightly firm. You don't want them too cold. Melt the chocolate and stir until smooth. Then use a fork to dip the oreo balls into the chocolate. Tap on the edge of the bowl to get the smooth finish. Use a toothpick to help slide the ball onto the pan. Allow to harden. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
