This recipe could not be easier, or taste better. I’d rather eat these than plain oreo’s. And I like them SO much better than I like cake balls. I use these for all parties, birthday’s, gatherings, etc… And since they are so easy to make they are my go too for a sweet snack when I’m craving something fast and simple. I wouldn’t call them truffles, which is what I was told they were the first time I tried them. So I call them Oreo “truffle” balls.
That’s it! At first I thought these would make a great substitute for real truffles as a treat I could share with my husband and kids while I eat real truffles, but now I love them so much that I don’t want to share these either! I’m I totally bad??? I made a huge batch and ended up hiding them in the back of the fridge so I could keep them to myself! I’m a terrible share girl when it’s a treat I like this much!
Oreo “truffle” Balls
- 3 C Oreo Cookies about 36 cookies
- 8 oz full fat cream cheese softened
- chocolate wafers for dipping
- Crush the Oreo's (I just toss them in to my bosch and use the cookie paddles, but you can use a food processor or rolling pin too)
- Add the cream cheese and mix well
- refrigerate about 3 hours then scoop out into balls
- refrigerate the balls, about 20 mins
- dip the balls in melted chocolate and sprinkles with sugar or other non-perils

sigh….. no one ever has a dairy free recipw for the yummy stuff. I can get away with oreos (just a teeny bit of whey powder) but cream cheese is a whole different matter. :o(
Thanks for taking time to send me the link.
Sorry about that! I do have some dairy free stuff, but I tend to use lot of butter, cream, milk, etc… Maybe there is another way to mix them together? Any dairy free thick frosting should work okay!
Do you remove the filling from the Oreos and just use the wafers?
nope, just crush them the way they are (I like to run them through a food processor for finer crumbs)
