Turn Oreo cookies into a delicious no bake dessert! Oreo Truffles are perfect for any party table.
I made these pretty little OREO truffles one year for our family’s 4th of July celebration and they were tasty little mouthfuls of wonder. I mean, really, can anything made with an OREO cookie taste bad?
I went to JoAnne’s to buy lollipop sticks to make these easy to dip in chocolate and less messy to eat. I figured if Starbucks can make cake pops, why can’t I make cookie pops?
I rarely go into stores like JoAnne’s, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby because if left unattended, I might stay in there for 8 hours and spend a zillion dollars. If you’re more of an online shopper, you can get the lollipop sticks here on Amazon.
If you don’t want to use lollipop sticks, you can always just dunk them completely in the chocolate and leave then as a truffle. This is a little messy and harder to do, but also very pretty. You can see how I did that with my Red Velvet Oreo Truffles.
You can make these for any occasion and just customize the colors. I was going to dye the white chocolate red and blue and make one of those cute flags floating around Pinterest, but “ain’t nobody (with a 2-year-old) got time for that.” So I opted for star sprinkles from the dollar store and I think I chose wisely.
What you need to make Oreo Truffles:
- 24 Oreo cookies
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- White melting chocolate (candy melts)
- Sprinkles for decorating
- Lollipop sticks
- Food processor
- Baking sheet lined with wax paper
Speaking from experience, it’s absolutely worth it to pull out the food processor for this. You can’t get a smooth and even dough using the old “put them in a bag and smash them with a rolling pin” trick. The processor makes quick work of the prep, which is nice because dipping the cookie pops takes some time.
You can easily change the color of the candy melts or sprinkles to suit and occasion. But if you’re looking for more red, white and blue recipes for summer celebrations, here are a few of my favorites:
4th of July Waffles are a great way to kick off a day of celebrating independence. Or try these (kid-friendly) Firecracker Jello Cups for a fun punch of color on the party table. Another easy dessert is my Fruit Pizza using Rhodes Rolls as the crust and fresh fruit toppings.
Whatever the occasion, you’re sure to love these Oreo Truffles!
Oreo Truffles: no bake cookie pops
- 24 Oreo cookies
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1.5 cups white melting chocolate (12 oz. candy melts)
- sprinkles for decorating
- Place the cookies in the processor and pulse until crumbled completely. Then add the softened cream cheese in a few chunks. Pulse again until you get a smooth, sticky "dough."
- Place the dough in the refrigerator (or freezer) for at least 30 minutes. This makes it much easier to work with and will keep the sticks in place when you are dipping.
- After the dough has chilled, melt the candy melts according to package directions. Take a tablespoon or so of dough and roll it into a 1" ball in the palms of your hands.
- Insert a lollipop stick in the center of the ball and then dip it into the chocolate, completely covering the cookie filling. Place the dipped cookies on a wax paper lined cookie sheet for decorating.If the stick doesn't seem to be staying in place, dip the end of the stick in the melted candy, press it back into the Oreo ball and place back in the refrigerator for a few minutes to harden. Then continue to dip as directed.
- If you don't want to use lollipop sticks, set the cookie balls on a fork and dip completely in the melting chocolate. Shake off the excess and place on wax paper to set.
- Sprinkle immediately with your decorative sprinkles and then let the candy coating set. Keep chilled in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
