Mint Oreo Truffles

Have I mentioned how much I adore Bakerella? She comes up with the cutest ideas paired with the simplest recipes. They can make anyone seem like a pro baker! This is the second recipe that I’ve made from her website; the first were her cupcake pops that were a huge hit as well!

Now, a little story to the background of this picture. I was driving with my boyfriend to his niece’s bday party (yes, this is finally the last of what I baked for that event & no, I was NOT the one driving.. I wouldn’t encourage taking pictures while driving, that’s dangerous) carrying my long and beloved cupcake carrier filled with goodies. This cupcake carrier is great because it can comfortably hold 24 frosted cupcakes with stability and perfection, or turn into 4 layers of support when you need to stack cookies/brownies/bars. On the way there, I realized that I had taken pictures of every other baked goods to blog about except for my oreo truffles! Total bust! Luckily, I had my point and shoot camera with me (I carry that everywhere I go since it’s so lightweight and you never know when you’re gonna need to take a picture) to save the day!

As my boyfriend is driving, merging on freeways, stopping at lights, and making turns, I manage to line up some of the truffles onto my cupcake carrier and take a picture for my blog. The truffles were sliding all over the place after each shot, but I did somehow get a legitimate picture. Too bad I couldn’t take a picture of how it looked inside, that would’ve made a HUGE mess inside the car. At the end of the five minutes of my truffle photoshoot/chaos, my boyfriend goes, “You’re gonna write about this [how chaotic it was for me to take the pictures] on your blog, huh?” Heck yes, I am.

These truffles were extremely delicious. Moist on the inside, and perfect to bring along. These were, by far, the biggest hit at the party… probably because there were a lot of mint chocolate lovers. I melted Wilton dark chocolate candy melts and Wilton blue candy melts for the coating.

1 pkg. Double Stuf Oreos – Cool Mint Flavor – (1 lb. , 1 oz. pkg.)
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, room temperature
chocolate bark or candy coating

  1. Finely crush the cookies in a food processor or a ziploc bag with a rolling pin.
  2. Stir in softened cream cheese. Use the back of a large spoon to help mash the two together completely.
  3. Roll the mixture into 1″ balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet.
  4. Place covered in freezer or refrigerator for a few minutes to help retain shape when dipping in melted chocolate.
  5. Melt chocolate as directed on the package and then dip balls into chocolate, tap off extra and set aside on wax paper covered cookie sheet to dry.
  6. Refrigerate and enjoy!

    Oreo Balls were basically a staple for for whenever me and my friends would get together and hang out on the weekend in high school… calling them oreo truffles makes them sound so much more professional though haha

    mamaella- thanks! chocolate bark is chocolate that is basically made for melting. if you cannot find it in stores, you can always use regular chocolate with a little bit of shortening mixed in. hope that helps!

    Bakerella does rock. I’ve made several of her recipes all with pretty good success! Of course oreo truffles are one of those that slipped through the cracks. I need to jump on these!

    How fun is this: I love Bakerella too, and after trying the oreo truffles with plain oreos once, I also got the idea to make them with mint oreos. And they were delish. Yours are much prettier than mine were.
