How to make golden oreo truffles
- Make the dough: Crush Oreos in a food processor, then add cream cheese and process until combined.
- Shape and truffles: Scoop tablespoons of dough and roll into balls. Place on baking sheet and chill the truffles for 20 minutes.
- Dip truffles in chocolate: Melt white chocolate in the microwave on 50% power level. Dip chilled truffles in melted chocolate and place back on baking sheet. Allow chocolate before serving.
Don’t have a food processor? Place Oreos in a ziptop bag and crush them using the back of a spoon or rolling pin. Transfer crumbs to a bowl and stir in cream cheese.
Oreo truffles are so easy to make, but there are a few tricks to make it even easier! Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature. It makes it way easier to mix into the crushed cookie crumbs. After rolling the dough into balls, chill the truffles before dipping them in chocolate. This will help the truffles keep their round shape and allow the chocolate to harden more quickly. Lastly, work quickly! If the melted chocolate begins to harden, place the bowl in the microwave for 10 to 20 seconds on 50% power level.

Get the Recipe: Golden Oreo Truffles
- 36 Golden Oreos (one 14.3 oz/405 g package)
- 1 cup (8 oz. or 225 g) cream cheese, room temperature
- 2 ½ cups (437 g) chopped white chocolate or melting wafers
- Sprinkles, optional
- Add the golden Oreos to a food processor, and pulse until evenly crumbled (see notes if you don't have a food processor). Add the cream cheese and pulse until the mixture is smooth and well-blended, stopping to scrape down the sides of the food processor once or twice if needed.
- Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the mixture and roll by hand into balls. Place the truffles on parchment-lined baking sheets. Chill in the refrigerator (or freezer) until hardened, about 20 minutes.
- Once the truffles have chilled, carefully heat half of the white chocolate in a microwave at 50% power level for 2 minutes, stopping to stir every 30 seconds until smooth (see tips for melting chocolate). Using two forks, dip the truffles in the melted white chocolate, and roll around until it is evenly coated. Transfer the truffle back to the parchment-lined baking sheet and immediately add sprinkles or crushed Oreo crumbs. Repeat with remaining truffles, then transfer the sheet to the refrigerator once more to cool until the chocolate has hardened, about 5 minutes.
