How to make no bake Oreo truffles recipe from scratch? 

  1. Crush– Oreos into fine crumbs.
  2. Mix in– Cream cheese until combined.
  3. Roll– Into small balls.
  4. Place– On a cookie tray.
  5. Chill– In the freezer.

Why do my Oreo balls crack?

Be sure that the truffle centers are at room temperature before adding on the chocolate coating. If you coat them while they’re still very cold, the centers will expand as it warms up, causing the ball to crack.

How to crush Oreos?

There are two basic methods to crush your Oreos into fine crumbs. One is to place the cookies in a Ziploc bag and it it with a rolling pin or hammer. Or you can do what I did and use a food processor. In the latter version you can simply pulse the cookies until fine crumbs form, then add in the cream cheese and pulse again until combined.

Do Oreo balls/ Oreo truffles have to be refrigerated?

Yes, because they are made with a dairy product, cream cheese, that needs to be refrigerated in order to stay fresh. But also, keeping them refrigerated ensure that they keep their shape and firmness.

Variations for Oreo cookie balls/ cheesecake balls/ truffle balls

Try a flavored cream cheese- To replace the plain, such as honey, honey pecan, pumpkin spice, mixed berry, cinnamon and sugar, cinnamon, or honey butter.

Substitute cream cheese- Believe it or not, you can also use Biscoff, peanut butter, Nutella, or other yummy fillings. Frosting is another great choice. These are some of my favorite recipes to use:

Use different coating– Although I used white chocolate for this recipe, you can also try semisweet or dark chocolate. Other options include almond bark, peppermint bark, cocoa powder, or powdered sugar.

Try other truffle toppings- Such as chocolate drizzle, various sprinkles, nuts, mini or chopped candies, chopped dried fruit, crushed peppermint sticks, Pixy Sticks, crushed freeze-dried fruit, crushed pretzels, cinnamon and sugar, or shredded coconut.

Use Golden Oreos- Instead of using the classic chocolate Oreo, you can replace it with the golden version for a different taste and color.

Try Mix-ins- Use mini chocolate chips, crushed nuts, chopped candy bars, or mini candies. Be aware that adding dry ingredients may cause a dryer cookie, so either add in some water or decrease the amount of Oreos.

Tips and Techniques

Use full fat cream cheese– Because it adds a richer taste and better texture.

Don’t use double stuffed cookies– Because the mixture becomes too sticky from all that extra filling.

Why is my mixture wet and sticky? How to fix it?– You may have used double stuffed Oreo cookies, which will make the mixture too sticky. Also, too much cream cheese can also do this. Be sure to use regular Oreos and measure ingredients out correctly.

Why is my mixture dry? How to fix it?– You need to make sure your cookies and cream cheese are very well mixed. The Oreo crumbs should be FINE. Otherwise your truffles won’t stick well together because they will be dry. You can also add a little water, if absolutely needed, but just a little.

Use disposable gloves-To avoid melting the chocolate on the truffles with your fingers.

Use a small ice cream scoop– In order to make all the truffle centers the same size.

If the weather is hot– Work in small batches while the rest of the mixture stays refrigerated.

Storage

Refrigerator- Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Freezer- Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month. Put in the fridge to thaw before eating.

Make Ahead- These can be made 2-3 days in advance and stored in the refrigerator.
