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!

    oh wow, i dont know why ive never thought to shape them into things other than a ball! they look so cute as trees and stars and whatnot! also, you can do this recipe with a package of nutter butters if youre looking for a peanut butter truffle or a box of store bought gingersnaps for a spicey truffle!

  4. These are one of my favorite holiday treats. Yours look beautiful!
