    I Love Oreo Truffles. They’re so easy for kids to get into the kitchen and to help make!


    Kids can use their own creativity by adding different flavors and decorations – to make their very own truffles! My daughter, Abby, just whipped up a batch this past weekend and had a ball decorating them herself. I think she has the recipe memorized now!

    Remember it’s not about perfection


    I didn’t stand over my daughter making sure these truffles turned out perfectly round, or that they were dipped exactly right. She had success in making them her own, and I will say it got a little messy!


    What a delicious tasty treat to give away to teachers, grandparents or even neighbors!


    OREO Truffles

    18 oz. package of OREO Cookies

    8 oz. package of Cream Cheese, softened

    16 oz. Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, melted

    (I doubled the recipe using ½ fat-free and ½ regular cream cheese. I also used dark chocolate, which I bought in the bulk section at Winco grocery store.)


    Mix cream cheese and crushed (fine crumbs) Oreo cookies together


    Roll dough into 1 inch balls, putting on wax or parchment paper

    Refrigerate for 30 minutes

    Dip balls, using toothpicks or a spoon, into melted chocolate (use double broiler or microwave on 50%)

    Refrigerate another 30 minutes until chocolate hardens

    Anyway we can help our kids to be successful in giving it is encouraged in my home – and it usually is centered on food!


    Decorate and Devour! Or package them up and give them away!

      I tried chocolate covered oreos last year for Christmas, and i think i'll try these this year. I'm also thinking... mint Oreos would be so good in this recipe too!

      My family and I love these. I have even made them to take to Church meals. If we have any leftovers to take home, there isn't much!

      I made these with my four-year-old daughter and almost three-year-old son. It was so fun and easy! My son only wanted to pour sprinkles on them but we were all together and that made the truffles even more delicious! I even served them to my book club this month and they were a hit!

      Hmm... so, anyone know if we are supposed to leave the white cream part of the oreo in the truffles?

        Yes, leave the white cream in the oreo. All you need to do is crush them up!

      My girlfriend made these for my daughter's birthday and the young teenage girls loved them - used white chocolate (candy) coating drizzled with dark chocolate and they were lovely and sweet!

      That is totally not a stupid question because I was wondering the same thing!

      stupid question - but when you crush the oreo cookies, do you use the entire oreo, or scape off the white yummy centers and use only the chocolate cookie part???

      These are some of my favorite treats to eat, but I've never thought about letting the kids help. Maybe this year I'll see if they want to decorate them for me!

      Yummy! I love making Oreo Truffles, but instead of covering them in chocolate or dark chocolate, I use white chocolate or candy coating. They are so rich, but people love them!
