What is an Oreo Truffle
Oreo truffle balls are tasty chocolatey sweets made of Oreo cookie crumbs and cream cheese that are shaped into balls and then dipped in melted chocolate to fully coat.
How to Make Cookie Crumbs
The first step of making these white chocolate Oreo cookie balls is turning the Oreo cookies into crumbs.
- Put the cookies in a heavy-duty resealable bag and squeeze the bag to remove any air, and then seal. On a flat surface, flatten the bag and roll a rolling pin over the bag of cookies until they resemble fine crumbs. If you don’t have a rolling pin, you can also use a hammer or mallet to pound on the bag gently.
- The most efficient and effective method is using a blender or food processor. Place cookies in the food processor and pulse a few times until they’re of fine crumb texture.
Tips on How to Make Oreo Truffle Balls
- For a smooth, creamy filling, make sure the cookies are crushed to a fine powder form.
- Allow to cream cheese to soften before beating with the crumbs to ensure the mixture is lump-free.
- Freeze the shaped balls for about 10 to 20 minutes so they’ll keep their shape during dipping. Freeze just until they’re firm and not too frozen as it might cause the chocolate coating to crack. If you’re not ready to coat them after 20 minutes in the freezer, transfer to the refrigerator to keep chilled.
- For better coating, splurge on high-quality chocolate such as Ghirardelli melting chocolate wafers you can find at most grocery stores. You can try their white, dark and milk chocolate varieties and easily switch flavors up.
- Use forks to dip the balls in the melted chocolate to allow excess chocolate to drip back to the bowl.
- As the cake balls are chilled, the chocolate coating will harden pretty quickly. Immediately sprinkle the cookie crumbs while the coating is still wet so they’ll stick.

Can you Freeze Oreo Truffles recipe?
These oreo balls are so incredibly tasty and decadent, they disappear as quickly as you make them. But if you can actually resist eating the whole batch in one sitting, yes, you can freeze them!
To store for future use, arrange the truffles in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze for about 10 to 15 minutes or until very firm before transferring to an airtight container or a resealable bag, so they don’t stick together. They’ll keep well in the freezer for up to three months.
