Oreo Truffles (Cookie Balls) are a quick and easy no bake dessert that is rich, sweet, fudgy, and delicious — and made with just 3 simple ingredients.


  • 1 (14 ounce) package oreos (36 oreos)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (1 block)
  • 12 ounces white chocolate (or white candy melts)


  1. Add oreos to a food processor or blender and mix on low until crumbled. You can also transfer cookies to a large ziploc bag, seal the bag, and roll a rolling pin on top to crush into crumbs. Remove 2 tablespoons and set aside (for topping the truffles later).
  2. Add cream cheese and and mix on low until combined.
  3. Use a small cookie scoop to take a tablespoon of the mixture and use your hands to roll into balls. Place the cookie balls on a large half sheet baking pan lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  4. Transfer the baking sheet to the refrigerator and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Melt the white chocolate in a small bowl. You can melt it in a double broiler by placing the bowl on a steamer basket, over a small pot of boiling water, or melt in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each increment until melted and smooth.
  6. Dip each chilled ball into the melted white chocolate to fully coat and scoop it out with a fork allowing any excess chocolate to drip back in the bowl. Place back on the lined baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle the reserved crushed oreos on top.
  7. Place the coated truffles back into the fridge to allow the chocolate to set, about 30 minutes to 1 hour.


Decorate your way: This recipe for oreo cookie balls makes things easy by using crumbled oreo on top of the balls, but you can really finish them any way you see fit: by adding sprinkles, an extra drizzle of white or dark chocolate, an embedded oreo half, or by leaving them plain.

How to store: Once the chocolate shells have completely cooled and hardened, place the finished oreo truffles in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.

How to freeze: Place leftover oreo balls in a freezer-safe airtight container or freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months. To serve, allow them to thaw overnight in the refrigerator or for about an hour at room temperature in a dry, cool place.
