My Favorite Friday - Oreo Truffles!

School is starting soon - for some of us it has started all ready, so I thought I'd include a recipe for some super easy SUPER yummy treats to lesson the back-to-school shock! I have to admit, I don't make these, my wonderful daughter does, but the recipe is so easy that even I could handle it. 

Oreo Truffles

All you need is:

1 package of Double Stuft Oreos
1 8oz package of cream cheese
White chocolate melters or chips

1. Crush the oreos. We use a food processor to get the crumbs really fine. Set aside about 1/4 c of crumbs.

2. Mix in the cream cheese. Use your hands! You can vary the amount of cream cheese you put in depending on how creamy you want them. We don't usually use the whole package.

3. Roll into one inch balls and place in freezer for about 15 minutes.

4. Melt white chocolate in double boiler or microwave and roll chilled truffles in to coat. Place on waxed paper. Sprinkle with reserved oreo crumbs. Don't wait until the oreos are all coated, once the chocolate cools the crumbs won't stick.

Eat them!

We've made all kinds of variations. Used mint and peanut butter oreos (seriously yummy) but these needed a little more cream cheese to make up for not being double stuft. We've also melted chocolate chips and drizzled the tops as in the picture. If you have a Win-co near you, they sell the white melters in their bulk bins. (I love Win-co's bulk bins!)

Enjoy, and happy back to school!

High School teachers - please join in and share your first week or day of school ideas! I'll compile them and post the results on Sunday.



  1. YUM YUM YUM - I love these things, but I've never made them. That's probably a good thing :)

  2. Drool. I love those. A teacher at my school makes them and won't share the recipe. Now I can get her back my making them for her.

    Paybacks are so delicious. :)

    1. She didn't want you to know how incredibly easy they are to make!

  3. Yum! I think this would be so much better than making the cake recipe, and I love the idea of peanut butter or mint truffles. Thanks for sharing!

    1. We definately like this better than cake pops... the frosting is too sugary for me.
