Oreo Truffles for Valentine's Day

Here is a quick and easy treat to give to someone special this Valentine's day :) I originally found these over on, but I think they originally came from the Kraft website.  These can actually be found all over the internet; they are so fun and easy to make!

All you need is a package of Oreos, a package of cream cheese, white chocolate candy melts (or white chocolate chips), and sprinkles!  I decorated mine with sprinkles, cinnamon hearts, and red candy melts.

If you don't have a food processor, you can throw the Oreos into a freezer bag and beat them with a rolling pin until they are fine crumbs.

If you need a quick and cute treat, make these soon! 

Oreo Truffles

  • 1 package of Oreos
  • 1 block cream cheese, room temperature (250 g)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup white chocolate candy melts (or white chocolate bark or chips)
  • sprinkles or decorations of your choice!
  1. Throw about 3/4 of the Oreos (the whole cookie!) into a food processor and pulse until they are fine crumbs (or beat place them in a freezer bag and crush the life out of them)
  2. Mix together the crushed Oreos and the cream cheese 
  3. Roll the mixture into small balls (about 1" in diameter) and place them on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper
  4. When all of the mixture is rolled, place the cookie sheet in the freezer for about 10 minutes
  5. While the truffles are cooling, melt the white chocolate in a small microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between each time to ensure it melts evenly
    1. If the melted chocolate seems too thick to dip the truffles, you can mix some shortening into it to thin it out, about 1 tsp at a time
  6. Remove the set truffles from the freezer and roll them one at a time in the white chocolate
  7. Shake off the excess chocolate, and set the truffle back onto the parchment paper
  8. Sprinkle or decorate as desired before the chocolate coating dries
  9. Repeat until all truffles are done and let set before packing them up
  10. Enjoy!
