“I love oreo truffles and have put a few personal touches on them to make them unique and even more yummy if possible! When this recipe was created, and oreo package was 18 oz. and included 45 oreos. The new packages have only 14.3 ounces, and around 36 cookies. You will need more than one package now.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 18 ounces Oreo cookies (45 cookies)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 12 teaspoon almond extract (see below for other options)
  • 14 ounces baker's dipping chocolate (2 7 oz. containers)
  • 4 ounces baker's white chocolate (1 box)


  1. Using a food processor, grind cookies to a fine powder.
  2. With a mixer, blend cookie powder, cream cheese and almond extract until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese).
  3. Use the large side of a melon baller to create ¾ inch balls and place on wax-lined cookie sheet.
  4. Refrigerate for 45 minutes.
  5. Follow directions on the Baker’s Dipping Chocolate to melt the milk chocolate.
  6. Dip balls and coat thoroughly.
  7. Gently place a fork underneath the coated ball to lift it out of chocolate; letting the excess chocolate drip off.
  8. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet.
  9. Follow the directions on the Baker’s White chocolate box to melt it.
  10. Place melted white chocolate in a small plastic baggy and cut a tiny hole in a corner. Use as a pastry bag. (Or you can purchase plastic bottles with small tips designed for creating candies).
  11. Using the bag or bottle, drizzle the white chocolate over each truffle.
  12. Place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to let the chocolate set.
  13. *Instead of the white chocolate embellishment, you can top with ground toasted almonds.
  14. **Do not substitute chips for either the milk or white chocolate. They will not create a smooth exterior on your truffle! You can substitute premium baking chocolate for the dipping chocolate if you prefer.
  15. ***You can change these up by substituting different flavors of extract: use peppermint and top with crushed peppermint candies, use cherry and top with pink tinted white chocolate, substitute ½ t. strong coffee and top with crushed hazelnut, or substitute vanilla. Your options are endless!
