Five different ways to dress up an OREO Cookie truffle for Christmas — Santa’s hat, Reindeer, Ornament, Snowman, and Christmas hearts. These easy and delicious Christmas OREO Cookie truffles are perfect for a party, to gift to neighbors, bring into work, or enjoy with your family!

 

Above this text is a quick video overview of the five Oreo Cookie truffles and below are more details for each individual truffle.

Please note that each recipe below is for making an entire batch of ONE type of truffle. If you want to make all five (or an assortment of some of them) then you’ll want to make 1 batch of the OREO cookie truffles and then scale down the decoration ingredients to exactly how many of each truffle you want. (The total quantity of truffles you’ll end up with depends on the size you roll them out.)

It’s no secret I’m obsessed with OREO Cookies. They probably appear too frequently on this site! (What?! Not even a thing, right!)

First up, SANTA HAT OREO COOKIE TRUFFLES.

Santa is a hard person to represent in baked goods, but his hat isn’t too hard! This truffle is super delicious since it’s dipped in TWO chocolates — the red candy melts and then the white chocolate. Plus; lots of sprinkles are always a good thing!

The “secret” to these Santa hats is using a miniature marshmallow on top to hold the shape of a big, poofy, and fuzzy tassel.

Santa Hat OREO Cookie Truffles

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Author Chelsea

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) regular OREO Cookies
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) red candy melts
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 18-20 miniature marshmallows
  • White Nonpareils Sprinkles
  • Optional: vegetable oil to make the candy melts easier to work with

Instructions

  • Pulse the full OREO Cookies (no need to separate cream from cookie) in a food processor or blender until it is in crumbs.
  • Using a hand-held mixer, beat the cookie crumbs and cream cheese together until well combined.
  • Roll the mixture into balls. Form those balls into tall triangles; the shape of a hat.
  • Chill the triangle balls, covered tightly, for an hour in the fridge OR place in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  • Once the triangles are chilled, melt the red candy melts according to package directions. You may need a teaspoon (or a few) of vegetable oil to get the chocolate thin enough to dip in. Every chocolate is a little different so if needed, I'll just add the oil slowly until it coats the truffles well.)
  • Place the triangle OREO Cookie truffle on a fork and then spoon the melted chocolate evenly over the ball. Tap the fork holding the truffle to remove excess chocolate.
  • Slide the truffle carefully onto parchment paper and immediately (it hardens quickly) press the miniature marshmallow on top of the hat. Allow the truffle to harden completely.
  • Once hardened, melt the white chocolate in bursts of 15 seconds, stirring in between each burst for 15 seconds until completely melted.
  • Dip just the marshmallow into the melted chocolate (just barely coat) and then dip in a bowl of the white sprinkles. Shake off the excess.
  • Repeat for the  base -- dip in melted white chocolate (or spoon it on) and then dip in the bowl of sprinkles. Allow to set up at room temperature.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

Depending on how quickly you work and/or how fast the chocolate hardens, you might have to re-melt the chocolate a few times.

ORNAMENT OREO TRUFFLE plus four other easy oreo ball recipes for Christmas I via chelseasmessyapron.com

Third, ORNAMENT OREO COOKIE TRUFFLES.

I got to help out in the toddler’s preschool class the other day and LOVED it. It was so fun to watch him and 11 other little kids play, learn, and interact. I also happened to get a sneak peak of my Christmas present he’s been working on which is a tie-dyed painted ornament.

I was the person that thought parents were weird when they saved everything their kids made, but now I’m 100% that parent. I save EVERYTHING he makes (mostly by taking pictures of his creations and saving those in a photo file) and get giddy over anything he brings home. I can’t wait to get my Christmas ornament.

SNOWMAN OREO TRUFFLE plus four other easy oreo ball recipes for Christmas I via chelseasmessyapron.com

Next up, SNOWMAN OREO COOKIE TRUFFLES.

We have a large fabric snowman decoration on our shelves in our downstairs family room. Without fail, every single day, the toddler points to it, looks at it very disapprovingly, and then tells me that “snowman’s supposed to be outside.”

I tell him it’s okay and this one can be inside, but he’s very doubtful. When I asked him if these truffles had to go outside, he nodded vigorously and said, “Oh yes mama. Snowman’s supposed to be outside.” ?

Last, but definitely not least, CHRISTMAS HEART TRUFFLES. 

There are a few options for the “heart” center — heart sprinkles, miniature heart cinnamon candies, or piping on the shape of a heart with red candy melts. If you’re making the Santa hat along with these truffles, it might be easiest (and saves you from buying another ingredient) to transfer some melted red chocolate into a small plastic bag, cut off the tip, and pipe on the shape of a heart.
