What you need

To make these delicious Oreo balls you will need the following 4 ingredients:

  • Oreo cookies – Use your favourite variety or Oreos, or any other chocolate based biscuit or cookie.
  • Cream cheese – Be sure to use a full fat cream cheese, as the fat will help give the truffles their correct texture and ensure they hold their shape.
  • Dark chocolate
  • White chocolate

Step by step instructions

Step 1. Make the filling

Add the Oreo cookies to a food processor and process until crushed. Add the cream cheese and process once again until the mixture is smooth and well combined.

Step 2. Make the Oreo balls

Take tablespoons full of the Oreo mixture and roll in your hands to form a ball.  Add the Oreo balls to a plate as you go.

Step 3. Melt the chocolate and coat the balls

Once all of the mixture is formed into balls, it’s time to melt the chocolate and coat the Oreo balls.  I coated half of my Oreo balls in white chocolate and half in dark chocolate, but you can coat all of yours in white chocolate or dark chocolate if you prefer.  I also drizzled a little dark chocolate on the white chocolate balls, and white chocolate on the dark chocolate balls, but that’s completely optional.

Once all of the Oreo balls are coated in the melted chocolate, place them in the fridge to set. 

How to store

Due to the cream cheese content these truffles need to be store in the fridge. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

These Oreo balls are suitable for freezing. Freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Defrost in the fridge before enjoying.
