3 Ingredient No Bake Oreo Truffles
Only three ingredients? Yes! These No Bake Oreo Truffles are insanely easy – and incredibly addicting. A must for your next party or holiday gathering!
It seriously does not get any easier than these no bake oreo truffles. Three ingredients (4 if you choose to drizzle with white chocolate). No bake. OREO TRUFFLES. Come on, now.
I’ve been making these no bake oreo truffles for as long as I can remember, and it’s become sort of a tradition now.
My husband’s best friend requests them for every party. He jokes that he won’t come down to DC for Chrismukkah if there won’t be oreo truffles.
Since they are so easy to make, I am generally happy to oblige!
Things you need: Oreos, cream cheese, chocolate. That’s it.
Smash up the oreos (a food processor helps, but a good old rolling pin and plastic bag works fine).
Mix in the cream cheese well. Use a spoon, or I find it’s even easier to use your hands.
Scoop the truffles (I find a cookie scoop is key for this), roll into balls, and freeze until firm.
Let the truffles warm up a little, then roll in melted chocolate. Boom. Done.
The only important step here: don’t use chocolate chips for your melted chocolate. Use a chocolate bar, baking chocolate, or candy melts.
Chocolate chips have stabilizers added to help form the classic chip shape. These added stabilizers mean the chocolate tends to get lumpy when melted.
So skip the chocolate chips and go for the real deal instead.
Just a quick warning, however. Once you start making no bake oreo truffles, you may not be able to stop!
Next thing you know, it will be 10 years down the road and you’ll still get requests for them for every party! (Good thing they’re so dang easy to make.)
