Ready In:
40 truffles (approximately)


  • 1 lb Oreo cookies (3 sleeves)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla extract (using different extracts allows for subtle flavour changes...I've used mint extract, upped to 1 tsp) (optional)
  • 1 lb milk chocolate
  • 12 lb white chocolate


  • Using a food processor, grind cookies to a fine powder. With a mixer, blend cookie powder, cream cheese and vanilla extract until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese).
  • Roll into small balls and place on wax-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 45 minutes.
  • Line two cookie sheets with wax paper. In double-boiler, melt milk chocolate. Dip balls and coat thoroughly. With slotted spoon, lift balls out of chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet.
  • In separate double boiler, melt white chocolate. Using a fork, drizzle white chocolate over balls. Let cool.
  • Store in airtight container, in refrigerator.
  • Note: When I am exceedingly lazy (most often the case these days), I forego the chocolate 'dip' and merely roll my truffles into various mixtures - chopped nuts, chocolate sprinkles, vari-coloured candy sprinkles, cocoa powder, chocolate shavings, coloured sugars -- still pretty -- less work.

    Why am I unable to save recipes?

    I cannot give this a better review?! I LOVED making these! I found this recipe for a Christmas get together and it got the reaction that I was hoping for. Another family member thinks she is the queen of snacks and sweets, but her Puppy Chow went untouched as my truffles flew off the serving tray! It was a heavenly treat that I will include in my sweet treat recipe box. I plan on out-doing her every holiday from now on.... :)

    I had another recipe for these that did not have the vanilla flavoring. The question I had- do you take out the oreo creme filling or leave it in- I left it in and they turned out perfectly. Also- if your cream cheese is at room temp- put the oreos in the food processor, grind until a fine crumb- then add the cream cheese in chunks and it will mix right in there. And to save time- use the small pampered chef scoop to make the balls!! Excellent!

    I followed this recipe to the T and found the center to be too mushy. Was hoping for a more creamy center. They really tasted just like an Oreo. If I want an Oreo, I will eat one. A lot of work and kind of pricey to make. If there is a next time, I think I will cut down on the Oreo filling and have it be more creamy.

    I've made these a few time now and they are always a hit! Here are a few tips and changes I made. Once I mix the cookies and cream cheese together I put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes to harden a bit. It makes it easier to roll. I also use a small size scooper to make them uniform in size. Once the balls are rolled, I put them in the fridge to set. This will help them retain their shape. When dipping, I find it easier to use a spoon to cover the truffle in chocolate and a plastic fork with the two middle prongs removed to remove the truffle from the chocolate. The last time I tried this I used Dare coconut creme cookies and coated them in white chocolate...soooooo good! My next ones will be with mint chocolate Oreos. Enjoy!

    Made these again this year, left out any extract because I didn't have any and they turned out awesome. I also made one with the mint oreos they have it, and those came out amazing! Instead of dipping in chocolate, I just rolled these (or rather, my 3 year old did) in chocolate sprinkles. I like the crunch they give! ---<br/>These are DEFINITELY for a chocolate lover. They are delicious but it did take me a few thousand years to make them, however this was my first ever dipping chocolate or anything like that. They came out very pretty.. I dipped them in milk chocolate and then just melted some white frosting and added red and greed food coloring and they look divine. :) Everyone who has had one so far loved it! Thanks for posting.

    These are a huge hit my house but we use ghirardelli baking chips instead of chocolate chips

    Don't usually review recipes I find online but these were incredible! So easy to make and my guinea pigs gave great reviews! Made some with ginger biscuits instead of Oreos and dusted with cinnamon after the choc - heavenly!!

    I make these every year and give them as gifts with a few other things. I have one change, I use almond bark instead of chocolate chips to coat them. I'm not sure if the original recipe I used said to do this or if it's just what I had on hand but yummmm. More sturdy and durable, plus feel more like a truffle. Sometimes it's just called candy coating. This year we did a batch with mint oreo's and OMG! They are my new favorite. They taste like the mint girl scout cookies. Seriously, worth trying.

    I love making these truffles! I used almond bark as I find that it melts so smoothly. I know that fondue chips melt really well too (used them once to dip pretzels). I also like to switch it up and dip them first in white chocolate and then drizzle with milk chocolate. These are always a big hit!

    WE LOVE THESE!!!!! I have never made anything that is better liked by my family and friends. I freeze the cookie balls before coating them in the chocolate. I also replaced the vanilla extract with peppermint and rolled them in crushed peppermints after the chocolate for one batch.


<style>body { background: url("http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3639/3512121819_f2f1aaf050.jpg?v=0"); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
