Valentine's Oreo Truffles

Last night, my friend and I made some awesome Valentine's treats called Oreo Truffles! They are also known as Oreo Balls or Oreo Cake Balls. I love these treats because they are easy to make and so delicious. They are similar to cake balls, but I am not a big fan of cake balls because they are just too sweet for me. If you feel the same way, then you will probably love these little goodies! 


1 Package of Oreos
1 8 oz. Package of Cream Cheese (softened)
1 1/2 Bags of White Chocolate Chips
Valentine's Sprinkles of Your Choice

1. Break up Oreos into small pieces.
2. Place in zip lock bag and use rolling pin or place in food processor to finely crush the Oreos to your liking.
3. Mix cookies and softened cream cheese together.
4. Roll mixture into 1" balls and place on cookie sheet covered with wax paper.
5. Place cookie sheet in freezer for about 15 minutes so the balls do not fall apart while rolling them in chocolate.
6. Melt chocolate in a double boiler or slowly in the microwave.
7. Roll balls in melted chocolate and let dry on wax paper.
8. Before chocolate dries add some fun sprinkles.
9. Once dry, refrigerate.


You can make a homemade double boiler by boiling water in a pot and placing a bowl on top of the pot.


Add a stick to the Oreo Truffle to make an Oreo Truffle Pop
Use a different kind of Oreo like Mint or Berry Burst Ice Cream
Drizzle a different colored chocolate on top
Use milk or dark chocolate instead of white chocolate
Sprinkle finely crushed Oreo pieces on top
Sprinkle crushed candies on top

I hope you enjoy these delightful little treats!
