Oreo + cheesecake + chocolate = one heavenly creation!
I first made this recipe for my blog in 2015 and now years later, I’ve updated the recipe with clearer instructions and improved photography.
This year I’ve been focussing on vegan baking and cookery, but some recipes like this one can easily be veganised with some simple ingredient swaps.
The biscuit/cookie we’re using is a Oreo. If you weren’t already aware, Oreos are 100% vegan-friendly so there’s no need to substitute. If you fancy something different to Oreos, why not try bourbon cream biscuits instead or another biscuit/cookie you enjoy.
My original recipe uses full-fat cream cheese, I’m using a tub of my go-to vegan cream cheese, which is a coconut based cream cheese alternative. I use it in my Vegan Biscoff Cheesecake and No-Bake Vegan Cheesecake recipes.
So to make this easy truffle recipe, you start by crushing the Oreos – there’s no need to remove the crème filling.
Tip the Oreo crumbs into a mixing bowl and add the cream cheese. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, mix the two ingredients together until the mixture has begun to clump/stick together.
Take a teaspoon measure and scoop pieces of the creamy Oreo mixture and roll into balls. Continue doing this until all the mixture is used up. I made 25 truffles in total, but how many you make will depend on how big or small you roll the truffles.
Place the Oreo truffles on a tray or container that’s been lined and chill for at least one hour. This allows the Oreo balls to firm up enough, so they won’t fall apart when dipping into the melted chocolate in the next step.
You can make the recipe up to this step and leave them to chill overnight, I did this and found coating the truffles easier.
To coat the truffles, take your favourite chocolate, either dark chocolate, milk or white chocolate and melt the chocolate. Dip each Oreo ball one at a time in the melted chocolate, coating the entire Oreo ball completely, shake off the excess chocolate using a fork and place the Oreo balls on a lined baking tray.
Once they’re all coated in chocolate, place the Oreo truffles back in the fridge for another 30 minutes or until the chocolate has set – at this point you can decorate further by drizzling the tops of each truffle with melted white chocolate and scatter over extra Oreo crumbs.
3 Ingredient Oreo Truffles
- 400 g Oreos (don't remove the crème filling)
- 200 g cream cheese
- 375 g chocolate (dark, milk or white chocolate)
- 35 g white chocolate (optional for decoration)
- Line a large baking tray with parchment paper and set aside. Crush the Oreos in a food processor or in a sealed food bag until they're fine crumbs.
- Tip the Oreo crumbs into a large mixing bowl and add the cream cheese. Stir the Oreo crumbs and cream cheese together until the mixture starts to clump/stick together.
- Take a teaspoon of the Oreo mixture at a time and roll into a ball. Place the Oreo truffles on the lined baking tray and chill for one hour until firm. You can chill these overnight if you want to.
- Melt the chocolate and dip each Oreo truffle one at a time in the melted chocolate, coating the truffles completely. Using a fork, carefully remove the truffles and leave and place on the lined baking tray. Pop the truffles back in the fridge for about 30 minutes or until the chocolate has set.
- This step is optional, but I like to decorate my truffles with some melted white chocolate and extra crushed Oreos. Once I've decorated the truffles, I place them back in the fridge until the chocolate drizzle has set and then serve.
- The Oreo truffles will keep stored in the fridge in an airtight container/covered plate for up to one week.
The truffles will keep in the fridge for up to one week, but they can frozen for up to 3 months. I saved some truffles and stashed them away in the freezer ready for when a chocolate craving hits!
