Oreo Chocolate Truffles!
*This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more details!*
Easy and delicious Oreo chocolate truffles with an Oreo biscuit filling, coated in chocolate and incredibly moreish!
I think its becoming a bit of a weekly habit in my house to make truffles, then eat them all up far too quickly… but at least this time I had an excuse – it was for a birthday! Not that you need an excuse for these guys – they are too good to not make on more than a special occasion.
As I was going to a family gathering with ages ranging all over the the place; I wanted to create a truffle thats alcohol free, and would be a winner all around – chocolate and oreos made Oreo chocolate truffles…. and also made something deliciously yummy and addictive!
Oreos are delicious chocolatey biscuits with a creamy centre – YUM! The addition of Oreo’s in these truffles create a crunch that is simply delicious along with the sweet and velvety chocolatey truffle centre. Nowadays, Oreos come in all different flavours such as brownie, birthday cake or even mint! They taste great on their own, with milk or my favourite at the moment is pairing them with my s’mores dip!
You can add whatever decoration you like! I personally like to keep mine simple with a drizzle of white chocolate and some Oreo biscuit crumb for some extra crunch! You can use milk or dark chocolate as your drizzle or you can of course leave them plain – your truffles, your choice!
I love to package my truffles in mini bags or boxes – but the leftovers I always keep in a jar! The truffles will last in the fridge for two weeks in an air tight container however mine never last this long! Whenever I have a girls night planned, truffles are at the top of the list – they are as good as wine!
Other truffle recipes
Truffles are always an amazing present idea and luckily, I have enough recipes on my website to cater for all tastebuds. My personal favourite for the festive season gifting are my christmas pudding chocolate truffles, peppermint truffles for an after dinner delight, carrot cake truffles for the perfect cup of tea accompaniment and then Biscoff truffles – just because they are Biscoff flavour!!
Oreo Chocolate Truffles!
- 150 g milk chocolate chips/chunks
- 150 g dark chocolate chips/chunks
- 300 ml double cream
- 50 g unsalted butter
- 154 g Oreo's (I used one whole pack)
- 250 g milk chocolate
- 50 g white chocolate
- Oreo Crumbs
- Heat the double cream in a pan until it just starts to boil and then turn off the heat
- Mix in both the milk and dark chocolate and then the unsalted butter until it is fully combined
- Chop the Oreo's up into very small pieces, it doesn't have to be perfect but too big pieces might make it hard to shape the truffles
- Mix the Oreo's into the chocolate/cream mixture and pour it all into a container and leave in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours, or preferably overnight
- Using a cup of hot water, shape the truffles using a melon baller or two spoons to create small rounds - I dip my melon baller into the hot water each time to clean off any excess and make it easier for the mixture to drop out
- Place back in the fridge for a couple more hours or a quick blast in the freezer so the mixture is very cold again to prevent the truffles melting when decorating
- Melt the chocolate for decoration and dip each truffle into it trying to keep the coating light so that not much drips off and rest on a piece of greaseproof paper
- Drizzle on the white chocolate and leave to set
- Often if my truffles are misshapen I roll them in my hands so that it becomes smoother and hopefully rounder!
- I use a dipping tool to help me with the decorating of the truffles, but you could also stick each truffle into a cocktail stick and stand them up in some polystyrene so the excess drips off itself!

Hiya, Thanks for this great recipe. I’ll surely try it soon.
Will it be possible to replace the Oreo with Kinder to create Kinder Bueno truffles?
Hiya – no this doesn’t work the same, you need a biscuit!
Can you use normal milk chocolate instead of chips for the truffles?
You can use any chocolate that will melt down. I simply use chips as I bulk buy cooking chocolate x
Hi, thinking of trying this recipe. What Chocolate chips do you use for the truffles?
Hiya! I usually use Callebaut! Hope this helps! x
Hi, these were so good when I made them! I was just wondering if I changed the biscuit to Chocolate Digestive, would I keep the other ingredients the same?
Hiya! Yes – sounds yummy! x
I left the cream chocolate and oreo mixture in the fridge overnight but the next day it was kind of hard? on top and under was still liquid im pretty dissapointed as i needed the truffles for a special occasion
Hiya! What chocolate did you use? x
Hi!!! I loved this recipe! Can you help me with something? I live in Brazil and here we don’t have this double cream ingredient… how many % fat is required to make this recipe? Then, maybe I Can search for another ingredient to change!!! Thanks…
Hiya! In the UK it is about 47% – hope this helps! x
When you break up the Oreos into small pieces, do you include the cream filling or just the actual biscuit? Thank you.
Hiya! This includes the cream filling. Hope this helps! x
Hi Jane, how it says Butter, does it matter if it is unsalted or salted?
Thank you 🙂 x
Hiya! I always tend to use unsalted butter in baking as I find it works slightly better – but it is also down to personal preference! Hope this helps! x
Once you’ve done the final chocolate layer do you put them back in the fridge to set? And how long do they tend to take to set enough to put into treat bags? Thanks!
Hiya! Yes you can do either in or out the fridge, but it would be easier to set the coating in the fridge! I’d leave them in there for around 2 hours. Hope this helps! x
Hi! How long would truffles last in the freezer please? thinking of making some for christmas ahead of time! Thanks! 🙂
I usually say anything lasts 3+ months in the freezer!
WHAT IS THE double cream ?
Hey Jane I use all your recipes which are fantastic! Going to try these now ! Just want to ask if I put them into plastic bags for gifts would they sweat! Thank you Jane
I would still keep the truffles in the fridge in the bags, and then they would be fine!
im wanting to make these as presents for xmas – could i make them now and freeze them?
Yes you can!
Do you need to melt the chocolate before adding to double cream
No, the heat of the cream does it!
Hi, I made the mixture yesterday and chilled it in the fridge overnight and just checked it now and it seems all of the Oreos have rose to the top and is the prefect consistency, however underneath the mixture is very soft with no Oreos therefore it was hard to shape. Do you have any tips?
What chocolate did you use? x
Milk chocolate chunks x
Hi, I’m 2 years late to the truffle party but the same thing happened to me! I used a different biscuit because I couldn’t get oreos, and used white chocolate, and a small bit of food colouring to make it green for St Patricks day. But not sure why the biscuit and chocolate would separate?
Hi can the mixture be frozen for a later date.
I don’t have a Mellon baller … is there any other way to make them without one?
I would use two teaspoons, and then roll the balls in your hands (you will get messy!)
Hi Jane – these look yummy! I want to give them as a gift but would they be ok in a cardboard gift box? Do you know how long they would last in the box? Thank you! Paula
I’m sure they would be fine – I’m not 100% sure but I’ve been told 1-2 weeks at room temperature! x
I don’t suppose you know how many carbs are in each truffle do you?
No idea I’m afraid!
I Was looking to make these, however most recipes use cream cheese and not double cream, is there a difference?
Also, can we not make the balls right after the mixture is combined?
This recipe is a proper truffle recipe, using ganache. It’s best to follow it as it is written because the ganache needs to set.
Do you have to keep these refrigerated?
You don’t have to as the cream is fine once boiled and combined with the chocolate, but I do personally keep them in the fridge.
I can’t wait to make these at the weekend! Would you mind if I did a review over on my blog? I’ll credit you fully 🙂
Oh please feel free, I’d love to see what you think!! Thank you 🙂 x
Oh, no…truffles NEVER last two weeks, even in an air tight container…I find they disappear long before that! 😉 Excellent idea to put the Oreos in them! I’ll have to try that with my next batch.
See I have to tell people how long they technically last and they laugh at me, then eat them ALL! And thank you!!
Oh my goodness, I made these for Christmas and forgotten about it until now! I love your packaging too 🙂
Thank you!! I always offer them in different ways depending on how people like them 🙂
I have never made truffles, but they are on my list of candy to make for the holidays this December. After reading your recipe though, I don’t think I can wait that long. I’ve printed it off and hope to give these a shot later in the week. Thanks so much!
Awwh thank you, they are so incredibly easy!! And I hope you like them!
Another delicious looking treat. Adding these to my must try list.
I truly recommend them!! And thank you!
I’ve made these before and they really are delicious! So simple to make, but they look great, I’m going to have to try taking it up a notch with some of the flavor toppings you mentioned.
Awwh thank you! I adore making truffles at home, they’re so easy yet yummy!!
