Oreo Truffles

Oreo truffles! One of the easiest and delicious truffles you will ever make. I mean come on, you really can’t go wrong with cream cheese and Oreo cookies. This recipe is a lot of fun for kids too, they can help you roll each ball and dip them in chocolate. I only make these Oreo truffles once a year. Christmas just would not be Christmas without these rich and decadent truffles. :)

    These are SO good, and easy to make. My daughter introduced me to this recipe last Christmas, calling them Oreo Cookie Balls. Of course, Oreo Truffles sounds so much better. Either way, they are delicious; and were extremely popular at my Christmas party. This time when we make them, we’re going to try the different shapes. Merry Christmas Christina!

      Thank you so much! I used a 1 1/2 inch cookie cutter to make then into shapes.

    I made some of these today. I’ve been seeing the recipe everywhere the last couple of weeks, so I just had to try them. A bit messy, but oh so good and worth it!
