White Chocolate Christmas Oreo Truffles

30 mini cups
35 min

Hello, baking season! We are officially in full-swing and I am so excited. I will get to visit with my nephews for the first time in so long this year and I am thinking of fun treats to make together. These are kid-approved in taste and ease of making them.


Oreos are such a great cookie, and it incorporates well into so many desserts. You will want to make sure you use high-quality white chocolate and cream cheese in these because those are virtually 2/3 of the ingredients for the whole dessert :)


If cream cheese isn't your jam, you could try using a shelf-stable cookie butter (I've seen them for Oreo before, almost like a peanut butter). I believe Trader Joe's makes a few.


It's so easy to use food gel for the colors as well, but if you want to have them just stay white, I think that is beautiful as well!


Game changer: Try using mint Oreos and a drop of peppermint extract for a minty version of this treat. I plan on trying it soon !

Ingredients

Oreo Truffle Cups

  • 12 oz white chocolate wafers/chips, or chopped white chocolate
  • 8 regular oreos
  • 2 oz cream cheese

Instructions

Oreo Truffle Cups

Crush oreos and cream cheese in food processor and set aside.
Melt chocolate on stove with double broiler (OR: in saucepan held over the top of another saucepan full of boiling water) Yes, you can hack a double-boiler in a pinch. If your microwave can be trusted, you can microwave in 10 second increments
Separate 1/3 of melted white chocolate into a small bowl
Separate another 1/3 of melted white chocolate into another small bowl. You should have 3 bowls with equal amounts of white chocolate.
Working fairly quickly, stir a couple drops of food gel into the bowls. I did red for one and green for another. It has that pastel look because I only used a couple of drops.
Using a pastry brush (I like mine that has rubberized little "bristles" for pastry items and egg washes), start with the white chocolate plain and coat the inside of a silicone mold, about 10 cups worth.
Then do the red white chocolate in about 10 of the little cups.
Next, paint the green white chocolate in 10 of the little cups, ensuring you wipe the red off of the bristles before moving onto the green color.
Pop the mold in the fridge for about 5 minutes to harden.
Next, use a 1/2 tsp-1 tsp to fill the molds with Oreo mixture. I filled mine right up to the top.
Now, you probably need to heat your chocolate again if it has started to harden. Just 10 seconds should be perfect.
Coat the top of each cup in their respective colors and set in fridge for about 10 minutes to harden fully.
The best part of silicone is when you are ready to pop them out they come right out! Amazing.
Store in air tight container in fridge for a few days or I prefer freezer for up to a month. They are great even just right out of the freezer!

Tips

  • These need to stay in the fridge or freezer because of the cream cheese!
  • I found a mini cup silicone mold on amazon, but you can adjust to any other silicone mold you may have. Or honestly, you can roll these into balls and dip in the chocolate as well, the world is your oyster!

    Great instructions and photos of process. If you are first truffle/candy maker it really helps to see the mold filling part. Read another filled candy recipe but couldn’t picture this step. Makes it less intimidating seeing it this way. Happy Holidays thanks for sharing.

    Might be a silly question, but do you scrape off the cream filling from the Oreo cookies before crushing them or do you leave it in?
