What Are Truffles?

Truffles are little rolled balls, usually made of chocolate, that are chilled and rolled in additional chocolate or cocoa powder. When you bite into one, the center melts in your mouth. Truffles are all about both texture and flavor.

Truffles are pretty rich, so you don’t need many to feel satisfied. Plus, you can coat these truffles in either white or milk chocolate, depending on your preference. With only three ingredients and a little time, you can make these truffles for a party or even a holiday gift!

I dipped my truffles in both melted white and milk chocolate. You don’t have to do both if you don’t want to. Simply pick your favorite chocolate to coat your Oreo Truffles.

Ingredients in New Years Eve Chocolate Oreo Truffles

Only three ingredients are needed for these delicious truffles!

  • 1 package gluten-free Oreos, blended into fine crumbs
  • 1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 12-oz. bag milk chocolate chips
  • OR
  • 1 12-oz. bag white chocolate chips

How to Make New Years Eve Chocolate Oreo Truffles

Begin by blitzing the Oreos into fine crumbs using your blender or food processor. Once blended, dump the crumbs into a large bowl. Reserve some crumbs for garnish, about 2 tablespoons. 

Add the softened cream cheese to the crumbs and mix with a spatula to fully combine the mixture. You don’t want any streaks of cream cheese in the mixture.

Using a tablespoon measurement, scoop even-sized balls and roll them lightly between your palms to make them into a nice ball.

Place the balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Once you have rolled all of the truffles, place them into the freezer for at least 2 hours or until firm and frozen.

Once the truffles are frozen, place a pan of water over medium-low heat. Bring the water to a simmer and place a glass, non-reactive bowl over the pan of water. Make sure the water is not touching the bottom of the bowl. This is your double-boiler for gently melting the chocolate.

Pour the chocolate chips into the bowl and allow them to melt. Once melted, dip each frozen truffle ball into the chocolate using two forks or a toothpick. Place the fully dipped truffles back onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. While they’re still wet, sprinkle some more Oreo crumbs over the top.

Place the truffles into the fridge to harden fully. When ready to serve, allow them to come to room temperature for about 20 minutes for optimal texture.
